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 force from the hammer also forces the board being nailed back tight aginst the previous board.

Question about Flooring nailers


I found that in the spots where I used a 16 gauge finish nailer because I couldn't use my hammer-actuated nailer, the boards immediately spring back, and there are gaps. The hammer-actuated nailer would pull the boards in as much as 1/4" -- pretty sweet. Sure, less functionality near the edges, but worth it, I'd say.
