Kyocera Senco’s new 16-gauge nailer packs a punch

Publish date:

Kyocera Senco has designed the new FinishPro 16XP 16-guage nailer for use with harder substrates, adding power and durability, according to the company.

The XP stands, loosely, for extreme professional and the 16-guage fills the gap between Senco’s 15- and 18-gauge nailers, according to product manager Scott Krause.

“The FinishPro has an integrated air duster on the back, both bump-fire and single-fire actions with a tool-free selector, adjustable exhaust and adjustable belt-hook,” says Krause.

“The biggest feature is the newly redesigned EZ-Clear latch, which has a stamped steel spring on it that provides a tighter hold on the drive track allowing more power to be transferred into the fastener. This almost eliminates misfiring and jamming. Each fastener that gets fired is guided by the actual top plate so there’s no double marking.”

The FinishPro16XP weighs about four pounds and measures 12” long x 11.4” high. It has a highly durable magnesium body coupled with an ergonomic grip making it light and easy to use, according to the company.

It can shoot nails from 1-1/4” to 2-1/2” in length and sells for $169.
