    Nice to see the technology finally picking up and helping us leave the hoses behind. Agreed with other posters that it’s too bad it’s a Ryobi.

    I would like to get the Dewalt hoseless framing gun. Still debating. Because I still need a compressor on all my jobs for the TC-G clips I’m not sure if it makes sense

    Well I am now into my 4th battery platform now. I now have 3 Ridgid 18volt tools and to be very honest I like them all.
    I did just sold off a Ridgid ¼ sheet sander corded and hope to sell a corded OMT today. Looking to upgrade to some new 18volt Ridgid tools.

    I would love a cordless 18 gauge nailer that does not need a cartridge. My King (Performax) brand does the job, but hauling around the compressor is a pain as is dealing with the hose.

    Nice that you are able to convert older corded tools into cordless tools by selling the old ones off. Which 18V RIDGID tools are you planning to get?

    It’s amazing how far the battery technology goes nowadays.
    same power as corded tools – never would have expected that few years ago.

    And with the new batteries like the CORE they will soon have more power than a corded tool and that will really be amazing.

    From what I read, cordless nailers are still an evolving beast. No one seems to have got it right yet Maybe the next round of tool intros will give us what we want.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Maybe thats the real reason for the cordless compressor. Removing the engineering problems by powering an air tank instead of the tool itself

    I keep looking at the Ridgid line up. Man with there warranty and tools available it makes them very tempting.

    I have to say I am also eyeing ridgid and ryobi, I really like the innovations they put out and the variety of tools they are willing to invest time and energy in to.

    Same here, I like the ridgid cordless nailers, plus the belt sander they came out with,

    @JimDaddyO I have been very happy with my king nailers, 16 /18 gauge and the 28 degree framing nail gun. But would like a cordless for sure, and the convenience of not having to drag out a hose and start the compressors.

    Yeah that framing nailer is hard to plug the holes it leaves behind 😉
    Actually they are not all that bad,

    The 18volt router comes to mind first. I need a new blower too.

    Do you have a local home depot?? If so is there a TTI rep in there??

    No TTI rep in the store.
    I checked again today while picking up a few things.

    I have 2 HDs about the same distance away from me about 2 miles and they could not be more different. The one is friendly and organized the other good luck finding any help. The tool section at the friendly store is wel stocked and has a guy that really knows tools. I’ll ask if the there is a TTI rep there.

    I have never seen a rep of any company at a Home Depot

    At ours – no idea if this is normal for all HDs – the guys worth talking to have a trade and a number of years written next to their name on the apron.

    So you can see Phil (finish carpenter, 28 years) or just some random guy without anything written beyond his name. I find that at least half of the semi-retired guys working there are experts in something. The kids are just hoping nobody asks them anything, and the non-trades adult employees are hit-or-miss

    Not TTI reps at my HD either. There used to be a really good contractor supply warehouse and lumberyard in town that did really well, but the national chain went under… All the workers were former tradesmen and knew their stuff, they just didn’t compete with the big box store’s prices.
