* Won't sink the larger nails completely
on June 27, 2009
I have NEVER had ANY problems with jams, double shots, or blank shots. I use Senco nails, maybe that helps? The ONE time I had a nail get caught up, it was a cinch to fix.
I DO have problems with this guns ability to sink a .131" thick, 3 inch, ring-shank, galvanized nail into pressure treated wood that is still kind of wet. This is a problem for me because that is the size I like to use on decks and pressure treated lumber is always somewhat wet. It leaves about a 1/4 - 1/2 inch of the nail not driven in. The WHOLE point is to NOT use a hammer. It drives 2 1/2 inch ring-shank nails great and possibly it will drive the 3" nails if I used a thinner shank, but they are Senco nails I'm using, so the gun should be able to shoot them in. I use a 5 hp, 20 gallon, electric compressor which should be MORE than up to the task
