Re: Max Framing Nailer


I have a Max stick framer that I bought in 2001. I'm a remodeler, so it doesn't get used every day, but it has been the most trouble free nail gun I've ever owned.

For example the AKHL 1050 compressor costs AUS$4000.00.
The HN90 Coil Nailer cost about $2000.00AUS

One AUS dollar is worth about 1 US dollar.

Despite the high cost and a much smaller market MAX Australia have sold about 100 of these units in the past 4 years.

I've been using the system for the last 6 years and am really happy with it.

My only criticism would be in relation to the HS90 Stick nailer.
This is not available in OZ because it takes a special paper collated stick nail which makes it unviable to sell over here.

I have heard a rumour that Max are possibly redesigning this gun to take your standard SENCO/PASLODE nail which would make it far more attractive to buy.

I really think the price of MAX in the US is very reasonable considering it's such high quality products.
