In a test carried out to compare the performance, functionality and other key features between some of the most popular nailers on the market in 2021 for overhead applications, CELO Group says its FORCE ONE was ranked on top for weight, comfort and success rate of shooting.
The FORCE ONE was found to be the lightest of the gas nailers at only 3.67kg; the most powerful with 105J of energy; and was able to shoot more than two times faster than other battery powered nailers.
“Despite battery powered nailers being popular, they often take a longer time to charge and have lower power than gas nailers, reducing their efficiency and success rate,” comments CELO.
The design of the FORCE ONE was also critical in helping reduce installation times, with features such as ergonomic handles, adjustable noses and dust filters allowing installers to be more efficient and agile by enhancing the tools productivity and providing comfort for long periods of time.
All the nailers tested are able to be used on a variety of base materials such as concrete and steel. However, when using the recommended branded nails for each gun, the 4 nailers were tested on their success rate of shooting 50 nails into concrete, the results once again showed that the FORCE ONE came out on top, with 47 nails successfully fixed into the material.
