Paslode Cleaning Guide: Get the Most Out of Your Nail Gun

March 31st, 2017

Paslode cleaning

Want to learn how to clean a Paslode nail gun?

It’s easy and only takes a matter of minutes!

Here’s how…

Paslode Nail Gun Maintenance

At Kelvin Power Tools, we have an Approved Paslode Service and Repair Centre. We’ve serviced and fixed thousands of Paslodes over the years, and most of the problems are caused by a lack of proper care.

Paslode nail guns are extremely reliable and designed to withstand tough working conditions. However, just like any machine that’s built to last; they require regular maintenance to upkeep their performance and last as long as possible!

Paslode recommend that you clean and lubricate your nailer every 50,000 shots. If it’s being used in a dirty environment or at high nailing rates for extended periods of time then this should be more often.

Cleaning your nail gun is easy and should take no longer than 15 minutes. At Kelvin Power Tools, we stock Paslode cleaning kits which provide everything you need to properly clean and lubricate your tool.

Paslode Cleaning: How to

Paslode provide simple and easy-to-follow instructions on how to properly clean and lubricate your nailer on their website here. The instructions are specific to each model, like the IM350+ or IM360Ci, so make sure you select the right one.

The video below demonstrates how to clean a Paslode nail gun and is a great help if you’re unsure about anything!

Paslode Maintenance: Do’s and Don’ts

Let the tool cool down beforehand, and remove the battery and gas fuel cell

This may seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget!

ONLY use official Paslode lubricating oil

It’s specially formulated to withstand the high temperatures generated by Paslode nail guns. Other lubricants can cause rapid build-up of combustion residue which will affect the tool’s performance and require more frequent cleaning. It can also lead to premature parts failure and, in the worst case, an irreparable nail gun.

Use official Paslode degreaser cleaner

Paslode recommend that you use their official cleaner as, again, it’s specially formulated for their machines. Other cleaners may chemically damage the nailer’s electrical, plastic and rubber parts. They may also leave a residue which can cause damage to both you and the tool.

Use a clean, lint-free cloth

This prevents you from spreading dirt or scratching the internal parts of the nail gun.

Make sure you properly tighten all screws when reassembling the tool

Using a nail gun with loose screws can cause damage to both you and the tool.

Test the tool after cleaning

Don’t worry if a small amount of smoke comes out from the nail gun, this is normal.

Your Paslode Needs Serviced Regularly Too

how to clean a Paslode nail gunSo your Paslode’s now CLEAN. Hopefully it seems refreshed! But is it firing like it should? As well as regular cleaning, your nail gun needs new spare parts fitted every now and then. The o-rings, battery pads, filter, etc. get worn out and need replaced.

Is your Paslode misfiring? See our troubleshooting guide: Paslode Problems Fixed

As mentioned, we’re an Approved Paslode Service Centre. This means that we’ve been authorised by Paslode to service and repair their machines as we meet the high standards they set in service and expertise. We have a free UK-wide collection service, so if your nailer’s in need of more than just a quick clean; we’re here to help!

We’ll service, clean, test and fix any problems with your nail gun, then return it to you like brand new again! A service and repair is a worthy investment for maintaining your Paslode’s performance. After all, you don’t want your work to suffer!

What’s included in our Paslode service?

  • Complete strip down of the tool
  • Professional cleaning with a high temperature power washer and degreaser
  • All electrical parts hand cleaned
  • New official spare parts fitted, including o-rings, battery pads and filter
  • Thorough lubrication
  • Testing for any necessary repairs

We Hope Our Paslode Cleaning Guide Has Helped

We hope you’ve found our Paslode maintenance guide helpful. Now you can keep your nail gun clean and performing at its best, ready to fire another 50,000 shots! If your nailer’s still not performing like it should, then it’s probably a service and repair that you need. If that’s the case, remember to check our Troubleshooting Guide to help you diagnose the problem!

“The process of getting a Paslode repair is so easy. I had my broken nail gun sent, repaired and delivered back to me in less than a week. I then sent another for repair and that too was returned within a week. The price they charge is so reasonable. I now have two nail guns working as good as the day I bought them.”
