    Guess if you do a lot of nailing it is worth it.

    You wont regret it. We use ours a couple times a week. Some days more than others. Great for punch out, truss bracing, first day floor joists, and bsement framing.

    That thing fired faster than I expected. Definitely would be good for punch out but I dont think I would use it for full fledged framing.

    Too heavy for full time use, all of the cordless framers are. I probably use ours more than anyone. As the boss, I seldom stick with one task for very long before handing it off. Other times, I will notice something that needs nailed, a few blocks added, or a bearing point missing. If you are working in one spot, by all means grab a hose. But if you are moving around a lot, these things are sweet.

    Heavier than a air powered one? Still nice to know a cordless model can do framing.

    @monman1 congrats on your new cordless nailer,

    Judging by the video, it looks like you will be satisfied, hopefully it’s going to last for awhile,

    I used it a bit today nailing deck floor joists, and it worked great!

    There is a bit of a learning curve with it. Once you have used it a few times, it will feel more natural.

    I believe it is. I had my reservations about this thing being able to drive a spike consistently, but it has proved worthy.

    Have you put it through the drop test?? I know I’ve dropped my Hitachi more times that I can count and it keeps going. I did not long ago drop my 18ga. trim gun and it needs a new magazine now.

    While I have not intentionally dropped it, it certainly does not get babied and has taken a few minor hits. I have had the one for almost 18 months, and so far it still shoots like new.

    Nice to hear it can stand up to work site abuse and still work great.

    Unless I was a tool tester where I was given a slew of free tools or got paid to test them I wouldn’t ever purposely drop my tools even ones that have been proven to be OK when done so like the brute drill

    On the job site tools do drop. A coworker looks over and says what’s that a durability test? So it happens and the good ones keep on going.

    I once dropped a Grip Rite framing nailer about 30 ft onto concrete. It leaked a little bit but kept firing nails.
