Design and Functionality
Aesthetically speaking, the Dewalt DW325PL doesn’t look much different than most similar framing nailers available today, but what separates this device from others within the price range is the well-balanced design. This leaves a lot of room for maneuver and the device feels good in the hand, which means it’s great for extended use. Even if you aren’t too savvy when it comes to handy work, using this framing nailer shouldn’t be too much of an issue at all. The fact that it’s lightweight just makes things even better, making the device even easier to work with.
All in all, the Dewalt DW325PL doesn’t have any major flaws when it comes to design and functionality. In fact, it seems like a well-rounded nailer, featuring a few nice design innovations we have not really come across before. But, how does that translate to performance? After all, the performance is what matters the most. More about that in the next part of our review.
The DW325PL’s biggest virtue, when it comes to performance, is the selectable firing system. This allows for easy switching between different operations. Whether you’re working on regular surfaces or engineered lumber, this framing nailer shouldn’t have any issues getting the job done properly. The only thing that could have been engineered better is the exhaust system – if you’re not extra careful with it, it will end up blowing dust in your face while you work. While not a huge issue, this is certainly something to keep in mind. While working with this nailer, try to use it in a way that the exhaust is not right in front of your face.
Other than that, the DW325PL performs very well in all aspects and regardless of the type of surface you’re working on. It’s powerful, it’s fast and it’s really easy to use.
