    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I have been wanting to stop rolling out a hose and compressor all the time but it was hard to find one company that made all the trim guns I need to use. I seem to need 3 or so.

    So let’s hear it on the 18volt guns.
    I see my friends at TTI a chinese company has lunched the Ridgid line with the LSA that they loose money with me.

    Here’s Robs take on them,,,,

    I saw a runtime test being run on those Ridgid guns with a 4 AmH battery, both 18ga and 16ga. They posted some impressive numbers.

    They were at my local HD and sold out fast. My local HD and the LSA work well together.
    Then we have the DeWalt that everybody loves.

    I was just checking out the Ridgid brushless 18v nailers online – they seem to be getting pretty good reviews. I am definitely going to look in to them, I would love to go hose-less with my trim guns.

    I have a senco fusion 18ga. It works good for the occasional job. Considering where the technology is going I’d be very interested in the ridgids for my next nailers. Or if Milwaukee would put some out…

    That Ridgid gun looks really nice. 18 ga is what I use the most in trim work so that would be a perfect setup for me. Seems like it has a lot of really nice features too. I wish that Bosch made an 18 ga version of the 16 that they make.

    Is that a gas gun??

    Looks like a very impressive nailer, he even mentioned that he used it for over a thousand nails, and the battery is still going. Looks like they have done a great job on the nail gun. I’m going to have to check out the pricing, and if it is available at our local home Depot.

    Sort of. It doesn’t use fuel cells like the paslode. It uses a closed nitrogen canister to drive nails and the battery is used to mechanically reset the canister. It doesn’t exhaust and the canister is good for a few 100 000 shots.

    theres a slight issue for us dan regarding that bosch nailer… its a angled 16 gauge.. no one sells angled 16 gauge nails in canada as far as ive seen. youd be ordering all your fasteners from the states

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I would love to go hose-less with my trim guns.

    The thing is no one was making many different sizes. I would hate to get into another battery platform. With the LSA I have to look at them too.

    How do they compare to the ryobi ones? I am in the market for a nail gun just haven’t decided if I want to go 18v or not. I am not invested in the 18v line of ridgid, I was given a 18v ryobi drill a few years ago when friend won it in a contest.

    They make a brief comparison in the video I posted. Seems like Ridgid is the better buy at the moment.

    Me too, I’ve been using an 18g for building JohnL birdhouses and would love to go hoseless. Although JohnL suggests using a 16g for them and I do have a 16g hosed but it’s physically so much bigger than the 18g it’s just to unhandy for me

    Good to know Jeff. I had never really thought about sourcing the fasteners for it. If Bosch came out with a gun that took standard 18 ga brads and ran on the 18V platform I would go for that.

    Looks like a nice nailer, these nailers may drive more companies to come out with other products to compete. Unfortunately getting into another brand of cordless tools doesn’t make sense for me and I think good pneumatic nailers will always be more reliable. I don’t do carpentry for a living though so a air nailer is easy for me when I need it.
