Ridgid Hyper Driver Nailers

Ridgid has been expanding their cordless line and coming out with some great additions to their lineup.  Now you can count in two more tools to their lineup, the Hyper Drive nailers.  Ridgid brought to market two new nailers, the 18 (Model # R09890B) and 16 (Model # R09892B) gauge nailers. So what makes these so special?  First, as you can see there isn’t a place to hook up an air hose, which makes sense since these are powered by their 18V battery.  So no hose to untangle, no heavy air compressors to haul around and no loud compressor...

Milwaukee Nailer – What’s to Like & Not Like About Them

As you know, there are only really three options of nailers on the market.  You can use a pneumatic, gas or battery nailer.  All these nailers have advantages and disadvantages.  With pneumatic, you have to carry around a compressor, listen to it fill up and always need some sort of power, plus you have to deal with the air hose.  With gas nailers, you have to spend extra money on buying gas, plus some don’t work well when it’s cold outside.  Now with battery nailers, while you get to cut the cord and forget about buying gas, they can...

Paslode’s New Cordless XP Framing System CF325XP

A long, long time ago we took a look at the Paslode CF325.  Today we are going to show you the next generation, the Paslode CF325XP. For me and others, Paslode has always been a top brand for nailers.  Their roofing, framing, finish and other nailers are one of the best nailers around.  The reason they got this image is because they have always made very dependable and quality nailers.  Now they just released their next generation nailer, the CF325XP.  As you can guess by the model number being pretty close to the same, the tool is pretty much...

New Porter Cable Nailers

Porter Cable just released two new 20V Max Nailers.  They released the 18 Gauge Narrow Crown Stapler kit model PCC791LA and the 18 Gauge Brad Nailer Kit model PCC790LA.  I was going to do two separate articles on these nailers, but since they are pretty close to being the same, I figured I would condense it into one article. Both of these nailers comes in kits which means you get the tool, 1- 1.5Ah battery, a charger and some nails or staples depending upon which one you buy.  For me, I think these are more designed for the Home...

DeWALT DCN660 20V Brushless 16 Gauge Finish Nailer

We have done a ton of nailers in recent years.  While we love the idea of being free from the air hose and noisy compressor, it always seems like battery powered nailers are still not at the top of the game and can’t compete with air nailers.  However, today that has changed.  I have to say this is the best battery powered finish nailer on the market, hands down.  I am sure you’re asking why. Simple, this does two things that some of the other battery powered nailers haven’t been able to do.  First, this nailer is very consistent....
