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.

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.
