Is buying worth it?

"Factory reconditioned" products generally go through a better Q/A process than the same product coming off a normal production line.

The reason is obviously that the repair process is not the same for every unit and you don't want to put bad "reconditioned" product into your sales channel, any more than you want bad "new" ones.

The way I decide if I want a "factory reconditioned" product is the warranty. If the warranty is the same as buying new, I will take reconditioned, no problem!

I have that brad nailer and it's a good tool. But I think you can do a good bit better with porter cable and maybe get 2 nailers every thing new.
