Need a framing gun--tonight!


My framing gun grew legs and walked off the job----

I want a good dependable paper collated one---air driven--

So far---Paslode
Bosch
Hitachi

I'm leaning towards the Hitachi ,although the Bosch looks interesting--it's so small ,it looks like an easy gun to handle.

Need this by 8 A.M. so feed back is needed quickly.---Mike-----

i guess buying off the internet is out of the question then.

i'd probably get the most cost effective one you can find locally that works for you. Then when you have time, get the one you really want.

Joe--that's the gun that vanished----I bought it as a back up gun---and then the old Senco vanished--an the Porter cable has been the main gun for years----Never had a problem---

One vote for Porter cable----

paslode or hitachi, dont get the bosch. i love bosch tools but their nailers need work big time.. a former employer bought hte bosch on a whim, just under light use it had to go in for rebuild 3 times in the first 6 months.. then a 4th time while still under a year.. they gave him a replacement under credit through the dealer and that had issues.. he switched to the newer paslode after that

teh older style hitach Nr8aa3 is a beast we have 3 of them at work and they just dont die and their 15 years old.. the newer style hitachi is good as well but nowhere near as durable.. one of the boys over on ct is a framer and buys about 6 of them every 2 years.. he fixes what he can on them and keeps the older busted up ones for parts

My vote is Paslode, I have had just about all of them and most are good guns but Pasloade is my favorite, I wish you were close I would give you one.

Heard nothing but good things about the Paslode. I have the Hitachi, and is good. TheHitachi older plastic collated are the best. I would go to the full head in a heartbeat.

I may bring it back if it starts to miss fire-----

ahh cool if its working hopefully youll be fine.. if you were shooting wire collated throgh a paper gun youd have issues. we had that happen t his time last year.. our lumber yard sent out the wrong nails. they were jamming up our hitachi guns.. my ridgid was shooting them ok for a little bit then acted up

Really liked the older porter cable tools the new ones not so much. I got to throw my vote to Ridgid has been fail safe for me. Only had 1 Paslode it was the gas charged cordless one. Hated it could not get rid of it fast enough.
