Editor's Review: Nail Guns for Joist Hangers

review date: May 1, 2003

This metal-connector nailer only looks awkward. It is lightweight and easily fits into tight spots. The only coil nailer we tested, it holds 100 nails per load, making it ideal for a framing crew that nails on tons of hangers. A collar tab adjusts the tool for different-length nails. This tool has the most sophisticated nail-orientation system among the five metal-connector nailers we tested. After the driver sets a nail, the pusher piston advances a single nail from the plastic collation strip into a pair of jaws at the nose. These jaws firmly grasp the nail shank, leaving about 3/8 in. sticking out to be centered on a connector hole. They also ensure that each nail will be driven straight in. The safety-contact tip is small and doesn't interfere with the operator's line of sight, so it's easy to locate the hole with the protruding nail.

Although the machine we tested was labeled as a CN-H601Z, this is the same tool that the company refers to as the CN601J.
