Coil Nailer


Hi All.

Not 100% here so work with me.

We have few additions lined up and it's getting harder and harder to find subs so I guess we'll be siding them. Like I really have time to seek / set up pump jacks scaffolding and you know my jobs are too dam small for lift.

Primary use:
hardie cement siding.
sheeting / exterior drywall desi
and feel as I would be getting my money's worth If I could drop in 3" nails once in while.

just the facts no pissing over who's gun is bigger and chit.

Thank you in advance for you time.

Re: Coil Nailer


I had a Bostich framing nailer years ago that was pretty reliable. The problem was it was very heavy.

Re: Coil Nailer


Hitachi nv75 shoots 1 3/4" to 3". It's what we use and it works well. The bostich guns look nice as well but our supplier says they aren't the best. Not sure about makita, they aren't readily available here. That's one thing I would caution you about, whatever you choose, make sure your repair shop is well versed in it and can get parts for

Re: Coil Nailer


I looked at the hitachi and makita. excellent top notch all the way. Love the way take 3" nails. but didn't want to spend the money. honestly I just want to sub the dam thing out and not even touch it. anyway shortly after I posted I got an email from hd and picked up two of these. Thanks Gents. Greatly appreciate the help.

Re: Coil Nailer


I was recently looking at the bostitch plastic cap nailer thinking I could use it with or without the caps when needed. Not sure the others do that but I was considering it.

I like the hitachi siding guns. Also check out the gecko gauges. The hitachi guns don't come with a hook so I use it with a Pneuhook

Re: Coil Nailer


I like a dedicated siding nailer. They are much lighter than framing or combination nailers. Hitachi is the only one I've owned, but I would certainly consider the Makita as well. It gets top notch reviews everywhere.
