As the topic name suggests, I’m interested in a new brad nailer. Been looking on my own for a while. As a rule of thumb, I generally try to get my gear from Makita, Dewalt, or Craftsman cause I always had good experiences with these brands and let’s face it, they’re among the 3 best out there anyway. However, a Hitachi cordless nailer really caught my eye https://popular.reviews/cordless-brad-nailer/#1_Hitachi_NT1850DE
While the stats and specs make me want to get it, I’m a bit hesitant because of the asking price. I initially set out to get one for less than $200, this nailer would exceed my budget a bit. Nonetheless, I’m willing to pay the sum if I don’t find another tool similar to it but cheaper (preferably still make by a leading brand, too). Some suggestions would be highly appreciated, or at least input for this Hitachi if any of you have experience with it.March 25, 2020 at 6:46 am #742330
Cordless or pneumatic?March 25, 2020 at 7:13 am #742331ChadMModeratorEast Palestine, Ohio
I have heard good reviews of the Hitachi cordless nailer. I have not used it myself but I have used other Hitachi cordless tools and they were well made.

I can’t see myself working without an 18 gauge Dewalt brad nailer. Cordless of course. Way more than $200 CAD assuming the OP is in Canada. And not a spammer.March 25, 2020 at 5:17 pm #742356
Based on reviews, I went with the cordless DeWalt also. Good tool.March 25, 2020 at 6:56 pm #742359
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get into another battery platform , I was already using some Ryobi batteries for the yard equipment and a glue gun , so I figured for 88 dollars bare tool , how bad could it be , I’ll tell you , after using it for a few little projects , I’m very pleased with it , that and it’s had pretty good reviews , definitely not high end quality , but really impressed so far.March 25, 2020 at 8:00 pm #742363
I heard only good things about Ryobi brad nailer but I already had dewalt batteries so that was a major factor in my decision.March 26, 2020 at 6:43 am #742379

Thanks , good to know , I heard from a few other guys one had a friend in finish carpentry who’s been using one for 3 years and no issues , another guy works for a home builder near me and bought one to use daily for fast repair never had any issues either after 2 years.
I’ve heard people have had great experience with the DeWalt , even the first generation Ni-cad model still working good.March 26, 2020 at 7:46 am #742391
Yeah, 2 years of use, more than 30.000 ( 30 thousands ) finishing nails used and no problems so far ( knock on wood). I’d say 3 to 5 times misfired/jammed.March 26, 2020 at 4:17 pm #742417
