Paslode roofing nailer
 
Has anyone here used a Paslode roofing nailer, Model # 904500? I'm seeing, as usual, mixed reviews on the Paslode site, but all "anonymous"... those are next to worthless. If it is anywhere near their nail gun, I'm buying one asap. thanks.

a few guys over on contractor talk have them, say their really heavy and and actually slow them down do to no bounce fire option

Would be next to useless for a full time roofer. Compressor setup and take down is no more than 15 minutes a day, and any good roofer should be able to hand nail at least as fast as a non bump fire gun can move.
I could see it being handy for hanging cement board, or other non roofing activities.

OK. Thanks for the info. I am a diy roofer, and only have a few more roofs to do. I guess I'll just hammer my way along and save the money for ammo.
