The law dictates just how many nails you can legally fire with a nailer in a day - assuming that you don't want to end up suffering from vibration white finger in your middle age. With at least three leading brands ready to compete, and several others closing in on the competition, who's top dog when it comes to cordless framing guns? When it comes to long-term build quality, we haven't had enough time with the Hitachi NR1890 to make any concrete claims, but with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty on the tool itself (excludes battery), neither Paslode nor Dewalt come close in comparison. After using both Hitachi framing nailers for several months, we can confidently say that Hitachi has introduced a tool that is going to revolutionize the market. In sequential mode the trigger must be pulled within 2 seconds of depressing the work contact or lock-out will occur.

While not a true replacement for pneumatic nailers, particularly on a production framing site, my crew and I found ourselves, more often than not, grabbing these nailers for many tasks. To be able to switch between the two so effortlessly helped ease frustration for some and possibly dangerous results for others.Grabbing a heavy compressor, nailer, unrolling the hose and then repeating to pick up, always seemed like way too much work, and time, for smaller jobs. The NR90GC2/J8 features a longer trigger stroke for safer use and a reduction in misfires, dry firing lockout again to help prevent accidental nail fire and a soft grip handle for improved control and reduce user fatigue. Efficiency concern - and in some cases questionable reliability - has kept many contractors from making the switch from air-power to battery-power, until now. Within the panel, you can power on the tool, change the firing actuation from sequential to contact (bump) fire, and check the remaining battery life. White spirit (another nasty, smelly hydrocarbon) apparently doesn't clean efficiently according to the Rawl rep.

If you are a roofer, who is working at height, firing nails in all day, week in and week out then a gas nailer makes sense. It also has a battery indicator button which unfortunately only has two lights so it's not ideal for accurately knowing how much juice is left in the battery, but that's not a major issue, for me anyway. The chemical recommended by Paslode et al for cleaning guns is actually closely related to brake cleaner (which is toxic) and is required to break down the carbon on the cylinder sides as well as the other residues left by combustion. The problem I have is that the nail gun was in the wrong carry case, the nail gun does fit in there but the box was for a Hikoki drill with pictures of it on three sides.

The biggest disadvantage to the Hitachi is its weight, which weighing in at 10 pounds with battery, is a pound heavier than the Dewalt DCN692, and three pounds heavier than the Paslode CF325XP. The next day’s agenda included mounting some acrylic mirrors to the bottom of a Murphy bed I had built.
