Editor's Review: Tool Test: 16-Ga. Finish Nailers

review date: January 1, 2009

Probably the most comfortable nailer in this review, the Hitachi has a unique integrated air duster that comes in handy much more often than I would have thought. The fitting on the bottom of the gun is angled to ease the strain on the hose. There are no view ports on the top-loading magazine, and you have to invert it to get the fasteners out. At least the magazine is skewed away from the handle so that it doesn’t interfere with the removal of longer fasteners.
