Industry’s Best Pneumatic Framing Nailers by Mallory Kramer

For many craftsmen, a pneumatic framing nailer is one of the greatest tools in the world. Making quick work of jobs that can take what feels like forever, and doing it with professional strength and precision, these nailers are an irreplaceable asset. If you’re in the market for one of the best framing nailers in the pneumatic world, well, you’re in luck. The following is a compiled, compacted set of reviews of the best framing nailers, and their prices, on the market today.

Hitachi’s NR83A2 framing nailer is one of the most high-quality, high-performance pneumatic framers on the market today. Weighing only 7.9 lbs the tool is clearly lightweight and the tool is extremely well balanced for the most comfortable operation and maneuverability. The framer has a tool-less depth adjustment allowing craftsmen to choose their depth of drive, and with an open nose design, extracting a jammed nail is hardly a hassle. The framer also features selective actuation, a favorite feature of most users, which allow craftsmen to simply transition from single actuation to contact actuation for the greatest versatility through a variety of applications. The tool is strong, fast, and versatile, and because it’s also so lightweight and well-balanced, continuous work and awkward applications are far less strenuous. Ultimately, the NR83A2 is a seriously tough framer built for durability on the jobsite and for reliability through the most heavy-duty applications. Lastly,pricing from about 0 – 0, Hitachi’s framer is a bit spendy, but is worth every penny. (Note: This tool is also available as a sequential trigger gun (NR83A2S) for just about 0.)

On another hand, Porter-Cable’s FR350A 3-1/2″ roundhead framing nailer is one of the more heavy-duty pneumatic framing tools on the market today. With the power to drive nails up to 3-1/2″ x 131″ into engineered lumber, the tool has intense power. The framer’s compact body design contributes to its well-balance and overall smooth style while an internal piston catch mechanism ensures each shot is consistently powerful. A selectable trigger transitions modes between restrictive or contact actuation mode, and with a tool-free adjustable depth-of-drive, craftsmen have complete control over the tool’s performance. The tool is simple to reload, and a nail lockout mechanism alerts you when its time to reload your tool. Keeping your materials protected during work, the framer also has a (tool-free, adjustable) exhaust and a (removable) non-marring nose tip, and also having on-tool storage, the FR350AR is endlessly convenient. Ranging in price from about 0 – 0, the framer is abrilliant tool at a certainly reasonable price.

The FR350A is also available reconditioned (FR350AR) for just about 0. As a reconditioned tool, this nailer presents a truly superior value to craftsmen and builders. For those unfamiliar with recons, they are an extremely great value that bring craftsmen the highest-performance tools at a tiny fraction of regular cost. Reconditioned tools, for some minor cosmetic or technical defect, have been returned to the manufacturer. There, they undergo a series of stringent tests and retests and restoration processes before being re-released with an “R” trailing the model number. This little “R” (and potentially hundreds of dollars) is truly the only difference between a brand new tool and a recon. The value with reconditioned tools is a no-brainer; when they are available, buy them.

Like Hitachi and Porter-Cable, Senco is known for building some of the best pneumatic tools and nailers in the industry. With well-seasoned experience and superior craftsmanship, Senco is an steadfast contender in the world of pneumatics. Pricing from about 0 – 0, their SN902XP framing nailer is a brilliant and saucy little tool with 904 in/lbs of power in a compact, 7.3 lb package. This round head framer is also built with a innovated design that requires up to fifteen-percent less air than other comparable models, and still having the power to drive 2 – 3-1/4″ (round head plastic collated) framing nails with fast efficiency, the nailer perfectly unites precision power and lightweight convenience. The nailer also drives 2″-3-1/2″ smooth shank nails and 2″-3″ ring shank nails. The tool’s compact design also contributes to its ability to work in tight spaces in between studs and joists, and its overall balance and ease of operation. Additionally, the gun is easy to transition from rapid fire to sequential fire and is simple to load and unload for optimal convenience on the job. The SN902XP is ideal for a huge number of applications from framing, fencing and subfloors, to trusses and decking. It additionally has a patented TrueDrive magazine to prevent jamming and an adjustable depth of drive for unfailing precision with every shot. Like the above Porter-Cable nailer, Senco’s SN902XP is also available reconditioned (if you can find it) for about 0.

In the end and whatever your needs may be, one of these nailers is certain to be an ideal framer. With big power, acute precision, and the accountability of a time-honored manufacturer, these pneumatic framing nailers are the best of the best.

Learn About Paslode's Cordless Framing Nail Guns – The Home Depot

The Paslode cordless framing nailer requires no compressor or hoses and comes equipped with a quick load fuel cell to help you complete jobs quickly.


buddy asked What is the difference in the degree angles of a pneumatic framing nail gun?

I am about to purchase a framing nail gun and I am not a professional framer. I have noticed there are guns with 21, 28, & 34 degree angles on their magazines. Why is this?
And what is the difference? I found a nail gun that will adjust to accommodate all three angles. What is the preferred nail guns angle used by professional framers?

And got the following answer:

The different angles take different nails. The 30-34 degree take the paper collated nails (such as Paslode), the 20-22 degree take full head plastic collated nails (Duo Fast, Porter-Cable FR350). 28 degree is wire collated (Bostitch). I would be VERY skeptical of any nailer that claimed to shoot all three. There is a huge difference in angle when it comes to the piston that actually drives the nail. Often, when a tool does 3 different things, it does each marginally rather than focusing on one task and doing it well. I prefer the 30-34 degree framers. I have a Porter Cable FC350. Now that Paslode has come up with a full head nail that fits these guns, I really like it. It holds more nails than the other styles, is a little lighter (especially the magnesium guns), and requires less maintenance. Hope this helps.

AnnieH asked How do I fix a roofing nail gun?

My husband’s nail gun is malfunctioning. It’s Powercat brand. He says it somehow flips the nail before it shoots out. We bought it online somewhere, and it was a while ago.
If you have no suggestions on how to fix it, where could we take it to get it fixed?

And got the following answer:

Your best option would be to contact the manufacture directly and ask them about repair. The tool is probably out of warranty so it may be a pretty good amount to have it fixed. After you add up the cost and hassle you may be further ahead just to buy a new nail gun.

Also, and not to insult your husband, but everyone makes mistakes. Is he sure he is using the correct length and gauge nail for the nail gun?

asked What are the advantages of using an angled nail gun vs. a straight one?

I’m referring to the nail guns that use an air compressor and hose. They are available in either straight or angled. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

And got the following answer:

The angle of the nail depends upon what you are doing! They all shoot straight! A angled nail is more for building walls and nailing off a roof! The straight nails are more for trim work, Crown molding, baseboards, etc.. The best question is what are you trying to do?

sailor asked What is the best pneumatic framing nail gun?

I was just at Home Depot searching for a framing nail gun. It will be used for home use, not a business. I like the Paslode, gas cartridge/battery operated but it is spendy and I’ve heard the #1 nailer that is returned with problems, mainly not being cleaned as instructions say to do. I looked at Bostitch, Porter Cable, and several others but just not sure what is the best middle of the road nailer and that will work reliably.

And got the following answer:

i own a Hitachi (full headed nail model), metal body framing gun and love it. i also own the Hitachi roofing nail gun. i do home improvement for a living, and guys that i have worked with have switched to Hitachi after working with me and my guns. one guy used to use bostich, but switched, the other used senco guns. also, the Hitachi’s continue to fire and set nails when the others don’t, when the air pressure runs low. as far as the paslode, nails cost more for those, and then you need the fuel cells, too, if you have a compressor, i’d go for an air nailer. if Hitachi’s are too pricey for your budget, i’d suggest that you look at the new Milwaukee guns, i know that they are priced affordably, and if they are anything like their power tools, will be well built. another thing to consider is repairs, check your local yellow pages for air tool repair shops, and see what brands they fix, just in case. squirt the tool with a few drops of air tool oil before you start to use them for the day, and again after lunch if it’s humid and you shouldn’t have any trouble whichever tool you buy. good luck, hope this helps.

Eartha Q asked Are nail Guns too dangerous to use?

I would like to buy a nail gun. They look like they make the work so much easier but..are they real dangerous? Also are they heavy to use for long periods? What is the best brand?

And got the following answer:

Eartha, they’re fun and do make work so much better. The drawback is that you not only need to get the nail gun, but also the air compressor. But a real woman can handle it with no problem. They’ve got great safety features that keep you from hurting yourself (or others) and you won’t have a hard time carrying it around.

I’m a 43 y/o mom with 5 kids and have no problem at all using it…and I’m a wimp 🙂 So go for it!

ty asked What type of nail gun should I buy to replace the boards in my wooden fence?

Some kids are constantly breaking the wooden boards (about 6 feet tall and an inch or so thick) of our fence. It’s ongoing and we are constantly replacing the boards. We’d like to purchase a nail gun (hopefully inexpensive) that is versatile enough for this and light use around the house (i.e. putting up crown molding)

Also, we’ve seen combo staple/nail guns on-line. Is it possible that this type of gun could be used to fix the fence?

Overall, what type of nail gun should I purchase and about how much is it going to cost?

Thanks

And got the following answer:

Sorry to hear about the vandals. might try a remote web cam. See links below. They’ve come down substantially in price and with the type of activity you describe, would pay for themselves rather quickly.

Jason and max are right. Screws are your best bet for fencing. Especially if you are constantly replacing the boards. Use brass torx drive screws and you will be able to reuse them a bunch w/o stripping them out. Perfect for your situation. Nails in fences tend to work their way out. Same reason you would use screws for decking instead of nails.

If you want a gun for putting up crown, the coolest new tool is the headless pin nailer. See the third link.

usud1 asked Whats the difference between the 3 popular nail guns?

I’ve been looking to buy some nail guns and a lot of them come in package deals of 3. Framing, finish and brad nailer. What’s the difference between the 3 and what are they used for?

And got the following answer:

a framing gun is used for ruff framing walls roofs sub flooring ect.a finish gun is used for installing doors base board crown molding ect.a brad nailer is used for cabinets bookshelfs ect.
