I'd love to replace all the dumbness in this room but the budget is tight and the stupidity is plentiful!

Re: GIVEAWAY: Hitachi 18V Cordless Framing Nailer

Continue to post awesome pics on CT and foremost, continue to inspire and teach the younger crowd that although money is nice, one should lay focus on producing a quality product backed up with the integrity and honesty paying customers deserve...the money will follow.

And also on the investment and importance of quality tools which make that goal much more attainable.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Hitachi 18V Cordless Framing Nailer

For 2018 I've been really looking hard into starting up my own business. I'd still like to sub myself out as a carpenter for larger commercial/industrial projects, but have the flexibility to take on my own projects in between.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Hitachi 18V Cordless Framing Nailer

My business goal for 2018 is to find larger jobs since they seem to pay better. Id really like to add a mini excavator to my line of tools so Id like to either have one or be well on my way saved up to buy one. Possibly get a bigger dump trailer and of course get a cordless framing nailer. It would be perfect for the all the bathroom remodels I do.

I also need to get my shop at home organized and set up right so I can work on projects here and in the heat in winter.

My goal for next year is to grow 100% by getting clients with deeper pockets that can/will pay me for top quality work instead of big box store installations (mostly bathrooms)

  • Covered by Hitachi's Lifetime Lithium Ion tool warranty & 2-Year Lithium Ion battery warranty
  • Unique Air Spring Drive System that uses compressed air to drive each nail resulting in zero ramp up time, increased driving speed, recoil that feels like a pneumatic nailer and quicker response time between drives
  • Brushless motor for longer run time per charge, less maintenance and increased durability
  • Powered by a Compact 3.0Ah Lithium Ion battery that is 3/4" shorter and .6 lbs lighter than a conventional 3.0Ah battery for complete portability
  • Drives up to 400 nails per charge using the compact 3.0Ah battery
  • Tool-less depth of drive adjustment for a professional finish with varying materials
  • Power switch located on control panel must be depressed for 1 second to activate the nailer and automatically switches off after 30 minutes of inactivity for added safety
  • Selective actuation on the control panel transitions between sequential mode and bump fire mode, when rapid nailing is preferred
  • Battery charge indicator located on tool control panel to easily check the available power in battery pack for less downtime
  • Ergonomically formed soft grip handle provides comfort and ensures a secure hold
  • Dry fire lock out system prevents nailer from driving when fasteners are low for added safety
