Quality for a professional
on January 21, 2012
I am a Finish Carpenter of 25 years. I bought this to make my life easier when moving from unit to unit on the jobsites I work at. So far, the tool has performed excellent for me. I am shooting mostly casing trim, baseboard, toe kicks, etc. with 2" and 2.5" 15 gauge paslode nails along with paslode fuel. Works great with paslode products. Every night, I store the tool in a job box overnight. It has been cold here....average temp 10-20 degrees. I take it out in the morning, and it works every time. It is extremely light, and feels very comfortable in your hand. The battery is lithium and the charges hold up even in the overnight cold. Bostitch air guns has always been on top for their lightweight and performance. And this cordless trim gun is no different.
Paslode trim guns are great also, but they have not caught up to lithium batteries yet. Their framer gun have, but no the finish guns.
DeWalt and Bosch both make finish guns that don't use any fuel at all. Just a battery. They work well, but are very heavy at 7.5 lbs. vs. the bostitch finish nailer at 4 lbs. Too much user fatigue for me, when trying to nail trim, especially on edge. Bottom line. I went with this one because of the Bostitch name, the light weight user friendly design, and the lithium battery. I am very happy with it.
