Senco Framing Nailer Review – 4H0101N Frame Pro 325 FRHXP:
The Senco framing nailer review – 4h0011n frame pro 325 frhxp is a high quality tool which has been designed with durability and reliability in mind. Its design features include a strong steel frame, a stainless steel body, and an aluminum alloy handle.
It comes with four different sizes of nails, two types of blades, and three sizes of tools. There are no special instructions or warnings printed on the box. The manufacturer claims that this model is suitable for most applications including general home repairs and small residential jobs such as trimming out a broken window screen or replacing a light bulb.
The frame itself measures 3 1/2″ x 5″ x 2 7/8″ (9cm x 15cm x 6cm). It weighs approximately 12 ounces (300g) without the carrying case.
The top of the frame is made from black hardwood and the bottom is made from white hardwood. The front and back sides are finished with a black finish. A large metal plate protects the front side of the frame from scratches when not in use.
The handle is made out of dark gray metal. It is made from two pieces that wrap around the sides and front of the frame. Two large hinges located at the top of the front and back allow it to open and close like a car hood.
The handle also has small indentations on either side for your fingers to grip, allowing better control while using the tool.
The handle is also hinged on the inside of the frame and is secured by a locking mechanism located on the back side. The bottom of the handle has two rubber pads for added grip and to protect the surface that you place it on.
All components of this tool are made from high-quality metal or strong plastic. There are no visible defects, flaws, or areas of concern.
The tool comes with a clear plastic carrying case that holds everything securely in place. The case is manufactured from the same type of plastic as 2-liter bottles and measures 11 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ (30cm x 14cm x 6cm).
The case has a hinged lid that flips open on the long side. Two latches on either short side hold the lid securely in place. The case also has a molded shoulder strap which can be adjusted to comfortably fit your height.
Inside, there are two rails running lengthwise on the inside of the case. These hold the tool in place by sandwiching it between them and the lid. The nailer can be removed from the rails by pressing in on a latch located at each end, which allows the tool to be removed.
At the bottom of the case are two molded plastic pieces that cradle the nailer and two smaller pieces that cradle the additional tools. These hold everything in place securely.
The tool itself includes a clear plastic carrying case with molded plastic compartments that hold all of the additional items. These include:
One universal fitting for charging the battery using your car’s cigarette lighter
One charger that plugs into any standard electrical outlet
Four boxes of nails (2″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/2″, and 5 1/2″)
One tape measure that measures up to 60″ in length
One set of nippers for removing small nails from wood and metal
One small tool for tightening and loosening set screws
One metal ruler (6″, 12″, and 18″)
One gas-powered brad nailer that uses 16-gauge nails ranging in size from 2″ to 5 1/2″
The entire package weighs just under 5 pounds.
