Question about Flooring nailers

Why are most of flooring nailers actuated by hammer?
I think pneumatic nailers which are only actuated by trigger are easier and more save labour than nailers with hammer.

Question about Flooring nailers

The swing of the hammer pulls the boards tight together. Trigger actuated nailer are good for engineered products that are perfectly straight, but they will not correct a slightly bowed board like a hammer operated one will.
