    Lots of hitachi lovers out there.

    I’m guessing the PC nailers are the older ones?

    Can’t answer for others, but mine are.

    They are good guns, hard to beat for the money.

    well said Ron I think Hitachi came in was cheap guns and grabbed a lot of market share over the last few years. Even though the guns are cheap they perform fairly well

    I have hitachi and porter cable. Looking to try the Bosch pinned soon

    I use porter cable 18 and 16 and a bostitch 15. They don’t get thy much use but when they do they all work great still.

    Curious what brand everyone uses for their finish nailers? I use bostich currently but thinking about selling my kit and buy a new quiter compressor and figured I’d buy some new guns as well.

    If you don’t need a large compressor, the Rolair JC10 is really quite quiet. Rolair in general makes quality compressors that are not too loud… but it depends on how big you need yours to be!

    I like my Bosch 23 gauge nailer – very impressive… though I have been waiting for a project to justify grabbing a Cadex or Grex nailer of sorts (18 or 23 ga)

    I got a chance to use the Makita cordless 23 ga. today…gotta say, I was impressed.
    Drove every pin perfectly (Cadex pins) straight into mitered corners in 1/2″ mdf. Battery life was great (18v, 3.0 aH). I only wish the trigger was a little ‘looser’; it’s set up kind of like a circ saw trigger.
    Kind of a heavy pull if your reaching over the top of a mitered casing to drive a pin straight down.

    How’s the balance affected by the battery? Sounds like a sweet tool though. Has anyone else used any of the newer cordless(battery) nailers?
    What did you think?

    i havent tried out the newer ones but ive had several in hand lately as i was going to buy the senco.

    according the brian campbell aka basswood, he rated the senco fusion as the best on the market, paslode impulse slightly behind it, hitachi, then dewalt, and bosch as the weakest

    Thanks Jeff. It’s just curiosity as I doubt I will wear out the air nailers I already have. They get used a little here and there on my furniture projects compared to the daily use out on the job site you would put them through. Those Senco Fusions look nice but ouch on the price tag.

    your right, its why i held off on buying one, i was looking at the 16 gauge which would be over $500 with tax

    I found it fairly bottom heavy (obviously, with an 18v 3 aH batt. on the base), but the overall weight was like that of a heavily built 18ga.
    I’d keep it on my belt or clipped on my pocket, because it is a bit tippy when placed on the floor; or just lay it on its side.

    I also have Hitachi 18 Ga and Bostich 18Ga

    Senco 42xp 15ga
    Bostitch 16ga
    Grex 18ga Green Buddy
    Bostitch 18ga
    Hitachi 18ga narrow crown stapler
    Bostitch 18ga stapler
    Senco FP11 23ga pinner
    Bosch 23ga pinner

    Well, thats quite a few guns….The Bostitch stuff came in a kit with a compressor-they have all be relegated to back up duty at this point. Draw conclusions as you will from that…
