May 17, 2022

Boosted Power For Engineered Lumber:
EVERWIN Introduces Yet Another 2020 PTIA Award-Winning 3-1/2" (90mm) Framing Nailer.

Everwin Pneumatic Corp. is proud to introduce its 2020 PTIA award-winning FSN3490, a 34° 3-1/2" (90mm) framing nailer. Its unique design stomps its dominance on the pillars of POWER, MANEUVERABILITY, and SPEED.

The FSN3490 is prominently known as the world’s most powerful 3-1/2”(90mm) framing nailer, delivering a pounding 1000 In-lbs beating out its closest competitor by almost 14% more driving power. Now while higher driving power may not always be advantageous, in today’s construction market engineered dense materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) are becoming much more popular for structural integrity. Normally traditional framing nailers are not geared to penetrating such dense material, however, Everwin now answers the call with superb driving power. If you thought that extra punch would sacrifice its weight and speed, it certainly did not.

At the weigh-in, the FSN3490 comes in a mere 7.9lbs (3.6kg), still lighter compared to others in the same class. That gives it the boasting rights in class as holding the best power to weight ratio amongst our competition. To emphasize the maneuverability of the FSN3490, its compact 13.4” (340mm) height allows for hassle-free maneuvering in between standard C-C studs.

Typical economic valves average a maximum of 7 – 10 cycles per second, however, thanks to our industrial grade valve design, Everwin’s FSN3490 fires a blistering 13 cycles per second. These upgrades in speed are essential, especially in applications where drag fire is key such as framing and sheathing.

To wrap up, the FSN3490 comes with no shortage of practical features such as a:

  • Metal exhaust cover
  • 46mm wide rafter hook
  • Top-loading all-metal magazine
  • Tool-free depth adjustment
  • Serrated contact arm
  • Standard sequential trigger (optional contact trip available)
  • Ultra-compact nose
