Upside, 120 nails per coil. You do not store extra coils in your pouch.How many framers are using coil nailers? I have only used them for roofing, and hate trying to keep the coils "nice" so that they are usable. I don't do too much roofing and they don't make a straight roofing nailer, so I have to live with it there. But I frame almost every day, and can't imagine keeping close guard on the nails all the time. Must be an upside.
How much better is it then the Hitachi NV75AG (if you've used this)? Satisfied with mine, but if the Max is a lot better I wouldn't mind switching.Max CN890II hands down. Best coil gun on the market.
I prefer a stick gun for framing, but for sheathing, you can't beat a coil gun. The 890 is compact enough to use for framing and I find myself using it more and more. Yes, with the coil it weighs a bit more, but I find the capacity worth it.
