    awesome that you bought that.. price point is sweet for you in the states.. here in canada it runs over $300..

    hows the balance on it. it looks massive for a 23 gauge

    Great video Chris! That looks like a really nice little pinner. I could use something like that for times when I don’t want to haul the compressor along. Looking forward to your thoughts on it after using it for a bit.

    Looking forward to see what that thing can do. Unfortunately I have gotten rid of all my 18v Makita due to faulty batteries but might get back into it with some persuasion.

    Thanks a lot guys! I haven’t tried it out yet, I had a doctors appointment this week down in Portsmouth so I didn’t get to play with it but I’m really amazed out how easy is it to hold. The built in finger grove is perfect and the light pops on when you pull the trigger safety down. I will post a picture of it next to my other two cordless nailers for a size comparison. Of course I have a Dewalt 20v 2 speed framer, Ryobi 18v Brad and now this. Clearly I have the mixed tool family 😉

    Oh man I want one of these pinners. Thanks for the video.
    You might want to check to see if it will sink 1 3/8″ pins. Dirty is having trouble with his not sinking them.

    if possible when u give it the test run, can you run it using both the compact 1.5 amp and 3 amp batteries. to see if theres any performance differences for depth of drive variation

    It will be interesting how it performs for you. Having no need for a compressor is a great feature and makes it doubly valuable. Let us know what you think after putting it through its paces.

    Bosch makes a 16ga battery powered finish nailer, but no other sizes.

    Thanks for the video Chris!

    Chris Thank you for the video. Looks like you are not having a problem with the pins being left proud like Dirty is.

    just take note that the 16 gauge is actually a angled 16 gauge nailer.. make sure you can get angled 16 gauge nails in your area if you decide to get it as a prize.. angled 16 gauge nails are pretty much non existant in canada….

    there was a 18 gauge cordless but it recieved extremely bad reviews when it came out
