NT65GB 16-ga. Finish Nailer
Hitachi's NT65GB cordless finish nailer is not only superlight and comfortable to use, it also costs less than other comparable models.
Hitachi’s cordless finish nailers are superlight and comfortable to use. Interestingly, the 15-ga. model doesn’t drive nails into hard material as reliably as its Bostitch twin and tends to jam when pushed to the limit. My guess is that the sharper Bostitch-style nails make the difference because the 16-ga. versions drive nails into the densest material without a problem. On the plus side, the HITACHI versions cost less than the comparable Bostitch models. As on the Bostitch nailers, the depth of drive is somewhat finicky. Also, the battery charger includes power cables for 12v DC and 110v AC, so the tools can be charged in my truck if necessary.
