    Those seem to hold up pretty well. I think I started with that one, got a Senco next, and now I have 3 of the Ridgids. The only selling point of the Ridgids was the warranty. $69 each, and with 3 I can get by with one or two out for repairs.

    I was thinking about the Ridgid. I had a Bostitch prior that held up for a while and I could find any comparison reviews so I stuck with what I knew.

    I have never been a fan of Senco, they remind me of grip rite. I think thats the brand…

    Using both my milwaukee 18 and 15 ga today. These are great, I think we are going to see more cordless as the tech keeps getting better and better.

    Come on, I had one prior and got a lot of good use out of it. Eventually I think a piece of galvanized from a nail jammed, killing it.
    It cost 50 I have not opened it yet if there is a better tested one with comparable cost.

    those are the bosch ones right? i wonder why they discontinued them, eventually once the tech gets a little lighter i’ll have to get into cordless.

    Its very peculiar how some companies target different tools. I was surprised that Milwaukee came out with those guns prior to having a framing nailer out. I also learned recently that Dewalt has now released a strap nailer. There have been a lot of hits and misses in cordless guns. I regret buying a used Hitachi 15ga gun last year. It misfires so often that you just can’t rely on it.

    My lineup is:

    PC Framer
    Senco 15G (bought used)
    PC 16G (bought used, leaks air a little, just needs new o-rings)
    PC 18G
    Ridgid 23G (bought used, my favorite of the bunch)

    I’ve also used the Bostitch Strapshot MC gun, and it worked great. I loved using it, but don’t use Simpson ties enough to buy the gun for myself. I like all the guns I’ve got quite a bit. The PC 16G is a great gun, but it’s the smaller (older) version, so it doesn’t shoot as wide a length range as the new version. I can live with it.

    Maybe a little off topic here , but what portable air compressors are you all using? I need a new one and want something light and easy to move around.

    Been using the small makita air compressor, works great. Kinda been waiting for it to fail or break so I can go buy a new one. Thing runs like a champ.

    I guess that’s why they sold it. I have the 15ga. Hitachi and it fires fine.

    Its amazing how reliant we have become with these too. I have thought about adding a “Siding nailer”, and a “hardware” hanger to my list but end up pulling back due to frequency or need.

    I use that little palm nailer to set hardware. I think there was a framing coil nailer Bostitch made that you could also use as a sider.

    If the Bosch gods of production are listening a nail gun with multi functions like our drills have with hammer,drill and drive would be a gold mine.

    We have yet to get a siding nailer. Hardi can be fastened using a framing gun with 2 inch galv full head ring shank nails. Just set the depth and your good to go.

    I had a plastic collated Bostitch stick framing gun that had a siding attachment…it was meant for vinyl if I recall. I never used it as it wouldn’t set nails at an exact depth consistently. After a while I sold the gun and bought a Max. No complaints there.

    I have a Hitachi. It works well enough. Kinda loud though. I will look at one of the California air or a Rolair for my next small compressor.

    I use a 28 degree wire weld Bostitch stick nailer for framing and it came with a rubber nose piece that would prevent marring the finish of siding but this: http://www.bostitch.com/en-us/products/tools/construction-tools/nailers/framing-nailers/15-degree-coil-sheathing-and-siding-nailer/n75c-1 was the one I was talking about.

    the bosch cordless nailers were problematic.. couldnt sink nails in hardwood and were much louder.. the air nailers had a ton of problems with them.. i know 6 guys that had teh framer and they all said they were in for service multiple times within 6 months of purchasing them.. the 18 gauge had to be modified by the user in order to sink nails i know becasue i had 2 of them… at the max setting it coiuldnt sink a 2″ nail in pine

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit
