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.

Senco F15 Fusion Cordless Nailer – Review

We review the Senco F15 Fusion Nailer http://www.toolsinaction for more reviews.


Laura asked What kind of nail gun should I use to build a wall? ?

I’m putting up a wall in my house. What kind of nail gun and nails do I need? Can I use my drywall screwdriver instead of a nail gun?

And got the following answer:

You need a framing nailer, used with 3″ or 3-1/4″ nails. Paslode, Senco, Hitachi, and Porter-Cable all make excellent nailers. You can’t use a drywall gun, since it won’t have enough torque to drive 3″ screws. Nails have a lot more shear strength than screws, anyway, so stick to the nailer. Paslode also makes an excellent cordless framing gun that uses batteries and fuel cells. It is expensive to buy and operate though, for a DIY job. You can probably rent the whole setup at a good rental yard. Hope this helps.

Aaron asked want a cordless finish nailer, how difficult to use?

looking at a dewalt 18volt 16 gauge finish nailer is it easily used and how well do the nails hold and do they look acceptable for finish work, and how often do they have problems like jamming etc. thanks.

And got the following answer:

They are easy to use and usually convenient. All nail guns can jam. The cordless finish nailers work pretty well. The framing nailers are too slow, in my opinion, for any big job (sheathing especially).

If you think you might someday want a framing gun, roofing gun, brad nailer, pinner, stapler, air sander, drill, sprayer, etc, etc, I’d recommend a compressor. For about the same cost as that cordless gun, you could get the kit from Porter-Cable that has a pancake compressor, 16g finish, 18g brad, and narrow crown stapler. And then you have the option of adding many other tools.

James B asked Do I only have to use paslode 16Gauge nails in my paslode model 902000 or can I use othe competitors nails?

I have a paslode model 902000 cordless nail gun. It uses 16 guage straight finnishing nails.

And got the following answer:

You can use any brand, they just need to have the same angle and the same type of head-cut (if any). Since you have a finishing gun you may not have an angle or a head cut though, so yours are most likely fairly generic.

Many of the brands of nails have a list of make and model guns that they will work in printed right on the box.

Joe Schmoe asked Hire a contractor to install base molding or do it myself?

He was going to charge $500. I went out and bought a cordless nail gun and some nails for $290 and the molding ran me $90. That’s $380 plus I now own a nail gun for next time. The corners aren’t as tight as I’d like, but the floor isn’t straight. I plan on using some painters caulk. Did I make the right move?

And got the following answer:

Trim carpentry is an art. The pieces must be cut the correct length, cut straight, beveled for interior and exterior corners, and they must be nailed straight and true. Then they must be caulked and painted, which includes dap in the nail holes. Wherever there’s a joint (run longer than 12 feet), you’ll also need to 45 the lap joint. If you’re going to rent it out, maybe, but if you intend to live there, I vote for hiring the artist.
