CINCINNATI — KYOCERA SENCO Industrial Tools Inc. (SENCO) announced the launch of an all-new, built-in-the-USA pneumatic framing nailer. The SENCO FN91T1 balances power, durability and ergonomics — it was designed to sink nails all day long and survive the toughest job sites without causing undue fatigue to the user.
The FN91T1 is assembled from globally sourced materials at the company’s Ohio production facility, where most SENCO nails and staples have been manufactured for decades. Located outside of Cincinnati, the facility will soon serve as SENCO’s global headquarters following an ongoing renovation and addition.
“Having our manufacturing, engineering and product management under one roof allows for a greater degree of quality control, which protects the end-user’s investment in their FN91T1 framer,” said Ryan Schuler, product manager for SENCO’s rough construction tools. “We inspect every component at every step of the process to make sure that it measures up to SENCO’s high quality standards, which results in a tool that works reliably for years.”
The FN91T1 is SENCO’s most powerful pneumatic framer yet, delivering 18% more driving force than comparable framing nailers. It is designed to consistently sink up to 3.5-inch framing nails in dense engineered lumber like LVL and OSB without slowing down. The nailer drives paper-collated, 34-degree clipped-head and offset-round-head nails from 2 to 3.5 inches in length.
Weighing in at 8.75 pounds and featuring durable magnesium magazine and a body and belt hook made from heavy-duty aluminum, the FN91T1 was built to take abuse. However, SENCO’s U.S.-based engineers also designed the FN91T1 to be exceptionally well-balanced and comfortable to use all day long. An over-molded rubber grip prevents slipping and reduces fatigue from recoil, and an in-line magazine improves balance and creates a clear line of sight for more accurate nail placement.
Other features include:
- Tool-Free Depth of Drive – Set nail depth with an easy-to-use thumbwheel.
- Aggressive Toenail Safety – The pronounced nose piece grips tightly for toenailing from any angle.
- Dry Fire Lockout – Nailer prevents dry firing to reduce wear on internal components.
- Rear Two-Step Loading – Magazine allows for rapid reloads for both right- and left-handed users.
- Multi-Purpose Design – Beside framing, the FN91T1 is ideal for truss building, subflooring, sheathing, decking, siding, fencing, pallets and crate assembly.
The FN91T1 is available at SENCO dealers in the U.S. and Canada. Each tool comes with an air plug, a no-mar pad and an industry-leading five-year warranty. A new SENCO framing nailer that shoots plastic-collated, full-round-head nails will be available soon.
