“This is my first experience with a cordless, framing nailer and it has not let me down. Framing a basement and I am able to build stud walls, soffits in a snap. It only jammed once, but was easy to clear, as I followed instructions (yes, I actually read the manuals, which need a bigger font). Toe-nailing is easy, once you figure the right nailing points. I was surprised at how light the tool is, despite its girth. You are tempted to nail so rapidly that you run out of nails quickly (sometimes less is best). It stops short of the end of a nail-pack, so you lose at least 5 or more, which is wasteful. I found that one gas cartridge lasts more than the box of nails (about 1-1/2), but I am still on the first battery. Loading the battery, gas cartridge and nails is fast and easy. I’m an amateur carpenter, but this tool is making me look like a pro. Make sure you wear ear & eye protection (glad they included safety glasses) and I recommend you wear a dust mask if inside (gas cartridge fumes). Love this tool so far.”
