VERDICT

The Bosch SN350-20F Full-Head Framing Strip Nailer is an incredibly powerful tool that offers ultimate productivity. Two times more durable than other power tools on the market and with 10% added power, the SN350-20F is a must-have tool for the professional or handyman who is looking to bolster productivity and reduce downtime.

Patented Full-Force Technology

Bosch has begun producing new power tools that utilize its patented Full-Force Technology. With this increased power, continuous nail drive, even through engineered lumber has never been easier. The tool does not require return chambers, which typically add bulk, waste energy and hinder mobility. Upon pulling the trigger, air pushes the piston further into the cylinder. When the piston fires, air comes out through the front of the machine, giving it ultimate air power and minimizing energy waste.

Lightweight, Balanced Design

The Bosch SN350-20F is 20% lighter than other competing products in the market. At just 8.4 pounds, this tool minimizes fatigue and gives you control over the work process. However, just because it is smaller and lighter does not mean that it is less powerful. This nailer drives 2.0’’ to 3.5’’ full head nails at a 20-degree angle. Operating at 60-120psi, all nails are driven down into the lumber.

Improved Durability

This framing nailer is built to withstand the wear and tear that is ever-present in a construction environment. The SN350-20F comes with a tough metal strike plate to endure the tough jobsite conditions. It also includes a self-cleaning air filter that prevents debris from clogging the O-ring and valve.

Fuss-free loading, drive adjustment and unjamming

The SN350-20F provides tool-less depth of drive adjustment for ultimate control and precision. Loading and unloading nails has been made simple thanks to the user-friendly single action lock back. The top-load, easy to use magazine makes it a breeze to unjam nails without the need to disassemble the machine.

Strong teeth and adjustable trigger for user-friendly operation

The Bosch SN350-20F nailer comes with strong teeth that steadily hold onto the workpiece during toenailing to provide control and high quality results. It also features an adjustable trigger that requires no tool, allowing you to easily select between sequential and bump firing.

The Bosch SN350-20F is a strong, aggressive tool that is worth investing in especially if you are looking for a lightweight, sleek and ergonomically designed nailer that provides high productivity.
