I'm looking for a framing nailer, to be used on large but infrequent projects. It will be a 34-degree clipped head nailer, unless anyone can convince me I should consider otherwise. A Paslode fuel nailer would be great for projects away from the shop (such nailing together pallets at the wood lot), but the fact that this thing may sit a year between projects has me thinking the fuel nailers are not for me. Most of my pneumatic nailers (15 & 18 guage) are the Senco oil-less teflon line, so I went looking at them for framing nailers first. However, they get mixed reviews, with many liking the short body and weight of their 901, and others saying that's under-powered for LVL work (I do have a big project using some LVL's in my near future). Their 951 has power to spare, but I guess it's bigger and heavier than the offerings from others. After looking at what else is out there, I'm looking more closely at Max and Bosch (SN883CH/34 vs. SN350-34C). Price is about the same either way, so I'm looking at some expert opinions on either model. I'm also wondering if anyone has another I should seriously consider, although I've already looked at the equivalents from Bostitch, DeWalt, Hitachi, Makita, P-C, Ridgid, etc.
