Hi Folks.
I hope someone may be able to assist me finding information about my Dakota DK350FR nailer.
I recently bought this hardly used air operated nailer for use on a decking project I am undertaking soon but I received no manual or instructions etc. I am familiar with how to use the nailer but it would be good to have any documentation that relates to it. The nailer was originally marketed by Rutlands but the item is now discontinued and they have no documentation on their system they can send.
I would very much appreciate if anyone has any info they could copy for me or if anyone has knowledge of any other branding that this nailer was marketed under which would allow me to obtain parts diagrams etc for future use.
Cheers.
PS A couple of pictures attached

The problem is that Dakota stuff is generic (despite sounding American you won't find any reference to it on US or Canadian websites, nor in US magazines) - in other words it's a "brand" that Rutlands buys in and is their own house brand. Sourced from a variety of manufacturers, mainly Far Eastern from the looks of it. So if Rutland can't supply spares, I think you'll struggle. Good thing is that compressed air tools are generally super reliable and long lived providing you oil them and service them regularly

Thanks Job n Knock.
I did buy the only spare part that Rutlands had, namely a replacement piston and gaskets, but as the nailer is essentially new I hope I won't need to make any repairs in the near future.
It did hope someone might recognise the item under another branding that was still available, it's a great gun so I'm sure it exists somewhere.
Cheers.
