    The seller just cancelled the im350 I won on ebay!
    Might be a blessing, do these ogo wrong that often?
    Should I buy second hand or new.
    I may bite the bullet and purchase a new one if I can not find any decent 2nd hand ones for sale but do any of you prefer the newer im360ci over the older im350?

    Gassless mate. Think Milwaukee do one now

    Far less maintenance and cheaper nails

    Check out the comparisons on youtube -Hikoki and Milwaukee ones are very good if you are on those platforms. Paslode is still king if you need super lightweight or doing a lot of overhead, but cost extra to run and need more maintenance – most people seem to be switching over to gasless now as less hassle.

    I've had a Paslode IM350 for the last 16 years and the only problems I've had are when I've used out of date gas - for some reason it does seem to degrade in the can.

    Bought to construct a garage and workshop roof it only comes out to play occasionally. The original NiCad battery packs expired and I replaced them with non original NiMH ones which don't self discharge as much when left unused for a while.

    Really. Well the nails will fit. Just the gas. Bit odd. Worth seeing if you can get gas cheap elsewhere.

    im350 i use are faultless every day and i have 3. Donate 30 mins every 2 weeks to them on a cleaning and oil service and they do return the favor in reliability. Trouble is i am a victim of my own shouts as i also service guns for about 5 or 6 other lads for them.
