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.

djsyphon2003 asked looking to find a quiet 4gal pancake compressor and round head framing nailer?

Just tired of my loud rigid twin stack compressor and hitachi nailer… would like to find a much quieter version for both.. cant seem to find a decible rating on any of the tool sites…

And got the following answer:

put a peice of plywood against your compresssor on the side facing you you”ll be amazed as far as quiet compressors you”ll have to go with a 220v 10 gal before they start getting quiet, I dont know of any quiet nailers have you considered a career as a librarian

Heidiva asked My first collection of power tools: What should I buy?

I want to be “handy” around the house–I live in the country, by the way, in the rural mountains, and I have to do a lot of thing around here myself. What is the definitive list of tools that I should get to start my collection? Preferably, I would have a short list and a long list.

What I think I should have/want is the following:
skill saw
draw knife
nail gun
staple gun

Any brand suggestions/warnings?


And got the following answer:

What I think I should have/want is the following:

drill: 3/8″ chuck, not Dewalt or Black and Decker, Battery operated, two batteries, 18 volt, Lithium Ion or better. Get a complete set of screwdriver bits as well as a complete set of drill bits. Don’t put pressure on small drill bits, they will break easily.

I would recommend either Bosch, my favorite, or Makita.

skill saw That is Skil Saw, and they are dangerous. Don’t get a cheap one, but you don’t need the very best. They are available with battery, but get a combination blade, which will come on it, and a plywood blade which will cut down on splitting on the plywood when you use it. If you are cutting plywood, measure, put a piece of masking taple on the wood, measure again, use a T square (a sheet rock tool mostly), and cut the wood. After cutting the wood, take off the tape from both sides. I would get the same brand that I recommended for the drill and make sure that the batteries are interchangable. You can buy kits with all that in it.

sander This depends on what you intend to do. They come in 1/4 sheet and 1/2 sheet size for the rectangular. I like half sheet size, but I am bigger than you are. They are also available with circular sheets, and depending on what you plan to do, get the size you want. I suggest the ones with hook and loop. Again, I would suggest that you get Bosch or Makita.

Dremmel Do you really need one?

draw knife You don’t need one

nail gun You can get a battery operated finish nailer for 18 gauge nails and unless you are framing a house, you don’t need one bigger. They make them that will take up to three inch finishing nails. Bosch and Makita don’t make them. Paslode is a good brand.
staple gun You could probably use the nail gun for that, don’t waste your money.

hammers Get one that feels good to you. Light weight hammers don’t do much, I would suggest 14 ounce to 18 ounce, with claws. Don’t get one with a cleated head for framing

Bosch, in my estimation, mades the finest tools. All are ball bearing and do not have nylon bushings like the cheaper brands. I have dropped my drill from a 30 foot ladder and gone down and got it and it still works. Of the other brands, I would dodge Dewalt (which both Home Depot and Lowes will shove in your face), but they are cheaply made. Hitachi is good, Makita is good. Porter Cable and Delta tools are made by Dewalt now.

Never buy brands you have not heard of. Don’t buy Ryobi, GNC, or anything like those.

The only other tool that I would recommend is a Bosch Scroll Saw, or hand Jig Saw. They are more expensive, but again, they don’t break. They have an older model, which I can’t remember the number, and a brand new model where the blade just pops out when you switch a lever, I would recommend eithe rof those, I have one of each.

Now for the safety lesson: Watch out for cords, use safety glasses, watch yourself with the nail gun, and don’t let a sander sit in one place to long while you are sanding.

one_drunk_monkey asked Diffrence between Roofing Coil nailer and Sidding Coil nailer?

Besides the obvious name diffrence, what is the diffrence between the two? Ive put up siding and shingles the old fashion way, but want to get a coil nailer for both jobs.

And got the following answer:

the roofing nailer will nail tight to the material. a siding nailer will nail tight to wood siding. i haven’t seen a siding nail gun for vinyl or aluminum, just a staple gun, and it had a depth stop system on it. and for the accessories, we used a roofing stapler to nail on j’s, finish trim, and corners. don’t use it for corners, it will cause them to buckle, regardless of claims otherwise. you will pound more nails roofing, i would go with the roof nailer. and since i’m telling you about them, get the Hitachi coil roofing gun. i’ve worked with bostich, senco, and others, and since i got the Hitachi, the guys that i work with have replaced their guns with the Hitachi’s because of how good they are. they run on lower air pressure, so you don’t have to pound nails until the compressor kicks in. they don’t misfire as often, or jamb as much either. and they are light weight, with out being plastic. i still hand nail my siding jobs, if i start doing more wood or shakes, i’ll get a siding nail gun, Hitachi, of course. good luck, hope this helps.
