Bostitch MCN-150 Nailer Review

With tough new building regulations in many areas, the use of metal connectors has become almost standard practice, particularly for buildings affected by hurricane, tornado, and floods and other natural and man-made disasters. The metal connectors are used in many aspects of new build and repair or reconstruction work.

Metal connectors are now used in the form of hurricane ties, joist hangers and stud plate ties and to strengthen weaker joints to enable building to meet the new tighter building regulations.

The Bostitch MCN-150 is a great nail gun for getting into smaller spaces, while still delivering all the power and drive required to fix the connectors safely and securely.

The Bostitch MCN150 Strap Shot Metal Connector Nailer (MCN-150) has been designed with tough work in mind, the toughened steel wear guard’s serves to protect the tool from excessive wear through coming into contact with the metal straps during use.

The exposed tip allows the fastener point to be placed directly into the connector holes, and with a built in safety device to prevent the gun from firing when the tip is not correctly aligned in the connector hole, the Bostitch Strap Shot, makes attaching metal connectors accurate, fast and safer. The nails have been designed to drive through a metal connector even if the nail gun should mis-fire, thanks to the especially hardened nails.

The adjustable exhaust outlet allows for the exhaust to be blown away from the user, which adds to the comfort and ease of use. The anti-jam feature triggers a low nail lock out to prevent the firing when there are less than 5 nails left in the magazine.

The lighter weight and compact design reduces fatigue and makes using the Bostitch Nail gun in difficult or confined spaces practical, convenient and safe. It can be very disconcerting having to balance on a ladder 20 or more feet above the ground holding on to a heavy piece of machinery and all the cables and hoses, while trying to attach a metal strapping at a difficult angle with the other hand.

Some users have noted they feel the nail gun runs out of nails too quickly as the magazine only holds about 25 nails, but other than that they have been very impressed with the performance, durability and practicality of the Bostitch MCN-150 Strap Shot Metal Connector Nailer, it may be worth making sure you carry replacement magazines around the job with you, unloading and reloading takes only seconds, so with the new magazine on hand it isn’t too much of a hassle.

The Metal Connector Nailer is a must have tool with the new building regulations which have been brought into force in many states across the country; having a tool which has been specifically designed to cope with metal strapping, makes attaching the straps so much quicker, easier and safer.
