Senco Fusion F-15 Angled Finish Nailer Review: Pros & Cons
1) Excellent price point (under $100).
You get what you pay for.
2) Great quality nails at reasonable prices.
3) Easy to use and operate.
No complicated instructions or settings required.
4) A great value compared with other brands.
The best bang for your buck!
5) Good warranty.
If something goes wrong, they will fix it.
1) Not waterproof.
I would not recommend this product for outdoor use due to the fact that it does not have a watertight seal like some other brands do. However, if you are using this nailer indoors where there is no possibility of rainwater leaking into the room, then you can safely use this nailer outdoors without any concern about water leakage issues.
2) Some of the parts may break over time.
Therefore, you need to buy a new set every two years. This is why I would not recommend this product for home use since it might become obsolete very quickly.
3) The nailers are made out of plastic which could crack easily if dropped onto hard surfaces such as concrete or marble floors.
So make sure that you keep them away from hard surfaces when not in use. Otherwise, the plastic parts can easily crack and break making the nailer useless.
4) It is not designed to handle very heavy-duty projects.
It can only handle light to medium duty home improvement jobs. Anything more than that and you are putting excessive strain on the tool which can cause it to malfunction or even break.
Who is this product for?
This is the perfect tool for anyone looking to do some home improvement projects around the house. For example, if you need to put up a few new baseboards in your living room or replace your kitchen cabinets, then this would be the perfect tool for that job. It can handle small to medium size projects around the house.
However, I would not recommend using this for professional commercial work. I say this because it may not be powerful enough to handle large jobs. It can be a hassle having to change your tools when moving from one project to another.
So, if you are a professional looking for a tool that can do it all, then this product may not be for you.
Q: Does it come with case included?
A: No, you will have to purchase a carrying case separately. You can buy one on Amazon for about $15. Q: What type of warranty does this product have? A: Most manufacturers offer a 1-year limited warranty.
Q: Are the fasteners interchangeable with other similar manufactures?
A: Yes, all of the fasteners are compatible with other similar makes and models.
Q: What is the difference between a framing nailer and finish nailer?
A: A framing nailer (such as the red devil brad nailer) can shoot 2″ to 3″ nails. It is designed to handle very basic framing projects.
A finish nailer (such as the bostitch fn55) can shoot 1-1/2″ to 2-1/2″ nails. It is smaller and lighter than a framing nailer. It is mainly used for applying trim (such as baseboards) and molding.
Q: Which is better, a pneumatic or cordless nailer?
A: That is a difficult question to answer. It really depends on what type of job you are doing. For example, if you are working in an area where you have access to an electrical outlet, then a cordless tool would be more convenient. But, if you do not have access to an electrical outlet, then a pneumatic tool would obviously be better. So in short, judge each case on its own merits.
