Disc Loads For Ramset D-60, D-45A & Autofast Tools

disc loads for ramset disc tools d-60 d45 d45a autofastWhile strip load type tools are by far the most common type of powder actuated, many of the Ramset Disc Load tools have been produced over the years and are still preferred by many contractors.  Disc tools tend to be a quieter tool, and do not advance the load until the trigger is pulled.  While disc loads can be hard to come buy in your big box stores ConstructionFastening.Net stocks all power levels of the disc loads.  So what power level should you use?  Ramset recommends using the lowest power level to do the job.  The loads, lowest to highest power are:  2D60/45 (brown), 3D60/45 (green), 4D60/45 (yellow) and 5D45 (red, for D45A only).  The most common disc loads tend to be the green and yellow, but your application will determine the load level.  Please note that the red disc load will not fit in a D-60 tool.  This load has a little to much power for the D-60 power adjustment front end so they made the load physically longer so it will not fit.  The red disc load in a Ramset D45-A tool with a 1-7/8″ Ramset Power Point pin is an awesome choice for attaching 2x material to steel beams.  Powers has come out with a disc load tool as called the P-60 that also takes the disc loads, up to a red.  If you are looking for disc loads to fit your Ramset or Powers disc load tools, check our site or give a call toll free at 1-877-212-2377.
