My old bostitch N80SB is on it's last legs.

I am looking at one of the following framing nailers. Hitachi NR90AE or Bostitch F28WW


Hitachi is full head plastic collated, Bostich is 28 deg welded wire clip head. Guess it would be medium duty use. Might use it hard every day for a week, then not touch it for a month or two.

am not a fan of Paslode I have an old Campbell Hausfield and a Ridgid. Have gotten very good use out of both, also have used Dewalt and it was OK. As far as Bostitch I only have a brad nailer but have been happy with it. I would never buy a clipped head gun there are so many things you can't use them for (legally) I look for the nails to become hard to find.

your right about clipped head. their extremely rare.. probably the only people using clipped head nails are pallet factory's

of the framers ive used hte older hitachi i posted is the hands down winner, the paslode power master is 2nd though i havent used the most current model.. ive used roughly 15 dewalt guns (framers, coil, finish) only 2 didnt jamb in the first 30 minutes) i know quite a few guys that have had the same issues

Dad will the full head nail work in the cliped head nail gun?
If you get the nails I said, then yes. If you bought them, probably not. See below.
The new PF350 will use clipped or full head nails.
As long as these nails on the bottom are used. They will work with any paper collated clipped head nail gun and still meet code.
