Senco® 1½” GT40CP Tackles Tough Concrete and Steel Fastening Jobs

February 01, 2012 - Mischel Schonberg

CINCINNATI (February 1, 2012) – Senco, the leader in professional power fastening technology, is introducing the GT40CP gas-powered concrete fastening system to its product line-up.

Powered by a Senco 34g fuel cell and 6V Ni-MH battery that fires more than 3,000 shots per charge, the GT40CP gives commercial construction pros the freedom to navigate jobsites unrestricted by a hose and compressor.

With 20,000 volts of ignition power, the GT40CP is safer and 5 times faster than a powder-actuated tool and requires no training or licensing to operate.

The tool delivers 65 foot pounds of energy to consistently drive concrete and steel collated pins ½” to 1½” long into concrete, concrete block, and steel to secure drywall track, furring strips, hat channel and ceiling grid in temperatures ranging from 20F and 120F.

Other features include a two-step nail feeder for quick and easy loading, a narrow nose to shoot hat channel and maneuver in tight spaces, a tool-free adjustable depth of drive, and a tool-free removable nosepiece and magazine for easy change out and jam clearing.

The GT40CP is backed by a two-year warranty and comes with two 6V Ni-MH batteries, a two hour battery charger, a belt hook, service tools and a rugged plastic carrying case. It can be used with Senco 34g fuel cells or other compatible fuel.

The GT40CP is available now from Senco professional tool distributors nationwide. For locations, visit

MSRP: $499
