Ryobi AirStrike Trim Nailer - WORTHLESS
 
1 Attachment(s)
No,worse than useless.

Still on first box of nails.

Gets cold - at all - wont fire.

Warm it up - go back outside - maybe 6 shots and it craps out again.

Use it inside - fkn POS cant even consistently set shoe molding.

I said shoe molding ! Nails standing proud ! FFS

And heavy? My God, its weights more than my old antique Paslode framer.

They’re all junk. I have the hitachi’s. I had a dewalt. Junk junk junk.


The Hitachi’s are now going for like $200 for the kit with battery and charger.

My employee has been using mine instead of air for about 2500' of trim. 18 gauge one. It looks different than yours. No issues aside from the weight. Also using Milwaukee 15 GA for the same job. Also heavy as hell but very convenient to just hang on belt and work.

I have that gun and it's fine for occasional use. Try putting a bigger battery on it.

rrk 12-06-2018 07:24 PM

I have one and it works great so i got the pin nailer also
Heavy but not heavier than the old dewalt I gave away

Well, it is a Ryobi. :whistling

I made the mistake of buying a couple Ridgid products. Not honest-to-goodness Ridgid plumbing tools, I mean HD Ridgid crap.

Should have just set my fvxxing money on fire. :blink:

I felt the same about the drill and batteries. one year of use then trashed.

I bought the ryobi caulk gun. It broke. I probably got less than two cases out of it. Caulk guns don’t like me, I get 30 tubes max out of any caulk gun before it breaks. Quart or 10 oz.. I don’t buy the cheap guns either.

I love my little Grex gas finisher. However I will never be able to vouch for it when it's real cold.

No and HELL NO !:eek:

I've been using my Ryobi Narrow crown stapler for a year now. But when weather got cold a couple of weeks ago, and it stayed outside overnight in the gang box, I learned that nope, they definitely don't work when it's cold. Was only like 40 degrees too. Did get down to mid 20s at night though.

hdavis 12-06-2018 08:58 PM

I bring all the lithium batteries in. I left a jump pack in the car, and it was worthless until it warmed up for quite awhile. NiCad works fine, but they just don't have power density.

Lettusbee 12-06-2018 09:07 PM

My dewalt battery nailer worked just fine.
I usually park inside so hadn't had that perspective on my cordless tools in a while.

Just looked, they have a pinner coming. How's your gun work after it's been sitting for a few weeks? Fires right up?

Yep so far. The only nuance is I'm left handed and I keep hitting the latch button for the gas cartridge. But it's not too bad.
