30º Paper Tape Framing Nailer

The Grip-Rite® GRTFC83 Paper Tape Framing Nailer is one of the most durable, yet lightweight framing nailers on the market today. Well balanced and weighing in at only 7.3 lbs., the GRTFC83 was built to fit easily between 16″ OC studs for framing, truss, sheathing, roof decking and industrial applications. Exclusive to Grip-Rite®, the GRTFC83 recycles a portion of the air after each shot, which dramatically reduces the amount of air needed for the next nail. This not only ensures a flush drive of the nail each time the tool is fired, it increases the number of nails fired per compressor cycle. The Grip-Rite GRTFC83 also comes with a selectable trigger to quickly switch between sequential fire and bump fire. That’s not all. The GRTFC83’s Top Loading System makes it easy to load strips of nails through the top of the magazine. The die-cast aluminum rotating rafter hook makes it breeze to keep your tool close and within easy reach and the included swivel fitting keeps bulky air hoses from weighing down your tool. Grip-Rite® stands behind all their pneumatic tools with the RED Promise – an industry leading warranty and service program that includes a 7-year warranty on tools and a nationwide service network. The GRTFC83 is also equipped with a tool-less depth of drive. Also included with this purchase: Swivel Air Plug, Removable No-Mar Pad, Rotating Rafter Hook, Safety Glasses, Tool Oil, All Required Hex Wrenches and Owner’s Manual.
