Hitachi NR65AK Nailer Review

The Hitachi NR65AK is a light weight strap tite nailer that makes connecting metal quick and easy. The nail gun shoots up to 2-1/2 inch x 0.162” paper collated 34 degree fasteners and will accommodate brands other than Hitachi. It has a unique, over hanging tip design with hole locating mechanism, making connecting a variety of metals easy and accurate. The Hitachi NR65AK also features a push lever and trip mechanism for precision work. Some nail guns call this feature a restrictive or single shot trigger operation.

The Hitachi NR65AK has a dual, rear load magazine that holds a total of 100 nails. The opening mechanism is a flip switch and slide out compartment that is easy to accomplish, even while wearing work gloves. The magazine compartment completely encloses the nails for protection from damage.

The Hitachi NR65AK works in two modes, push or single shot. This means the gun will fire when the tip is placed against the surface or when the trigger is squeezed while making contact with the surface. Either way, the nail is delivered with power and accuracy and the choice depends on the task at hand.

The operating pressure of the Hitachi NR65AK nailer is sufficient enough to deliver the necessary power to drive the nails fast and accurately and it works well with a 3 gallon compressor. However, higher capacity compressors may also be used. The nailer is also equipped with a male quick connector, twist on connection with a pressure removal connector. Only use the prescribed connections and tubing when operating the nail gun.

The air filter is designed to remove moisture and contaminants from the compressed air, two elements that will damage the nail gun and reduce its effective life. Changing the air filter regularly is the optimum maintenance measure that will keep the power at optimum levels and prolong the life and integrity of the nail gun.
