Primatech Q550ALR 18 Gauge Nailer with Roller Base
The Q550ALR is the same tool as the Q550AL with the addition of the PrimSurfer roller base. The PrimSurfer fulfills the need for increased Speed and Precision in large surface as well as residential flooring jobs. Its two-way fluid sideshift extends the natural hand movement and matches the agility of the installer, allowing a constant, comfortable posture that prevents “top nailing”. Not having to lift the tool repeatedly eases off the feeling of tension in the user’s arm and back. PrimSurfer also provides a substantial gain in time and installed surface, which translates into more benefits for the contractor. First to develop and perfect this groundbreaking addition, Primatech keeps improving it with a new generation composite and lighter carrier frame for its adjustable EXPERT series flooring tools.
