“I bought the Bostitch N66c-1 siding nailer last year, over the course of the winter I’ve shot over 10,000 Hitachi nails through this gun. I can happily report I never encountered one misfire or jam. The company I work for commonly uses Hitachi guns, which is why I use their nails, however watching the other guys nailers constantly jam sold me on the Bostitch. I’m really happy with my purchase and really like the power of the nailgun.”

“I bought the Bostitch N66C for fastening cedar siding on my home. I really came to appreciate the fact of how light this nailer was after using it 8 hours a day for several days. The quality is immediately apparent, and nails are easily found at any major hard ware store. With out a nail gun the task would have been grueling, the N66C really made quick work out of hanging siding. I’m very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this nailer to anyone.”

“I’ve be a carpenter for over 25 years and we use this nailgun in our professional carpentry business. The nailer has worked flawlessly for trim boards, cedar siding, plywood sheeting, and other jobs. The gun has proved very reliable and powerful. The huge magazine capacity is a big bonus; I almost never have to reload when working all day. The power the nail gun produces is actually quite impressive; it handled any type of wood we tried. I have no complaints with this nail gun and I will continue to purchase Bostitch products in the future.”
