Hitachi NV90AG 3-1/2 Inch Coil Framing Nailer

Hitachi NV90AG Coil Framing Nailer

The NV90AG 3-1/2” Coil Framing Nailer is the latest addition to Hitachi's range of pneumatic nailers.

This one has quite a sturdy build with an aluminum body and steel head plate making it suitable for professional use as well as for home remodeling projects such as installing wall sheathing, roof decking, subflooring, and even fence pales.

And you don't only have to use it with 3-1/2 inch nails - it can work with a wide range from 1-3/4” – 3-1/2” in length and .099” to .131” in width, and you can load it with up to 300 nails at a time. It also has the power to drive the 3-1/2” nails into some of the toughest woods including engineered lumber.

Hitachi have managed to keep the weight down to 7.7lbs, which is 5% lighter than their previous models, and they've designed it to balance well in your hand which makes working at awkward angles, or overhead, a lot less stressful, particularly if you've got hours of work to do at a time.

The NV90AG lets you switch between sequential actuation or “bump” firing modes by simply flipping a switch located near the trigger- no tools and no modifications required. And in the event of a lodged nail, the open nose design provides easy access to clear the jam.

It comes standard with a 5 year warranty, and Hitachi are also throwing in a free pair of safety glasses.

While the list price is just over $500, you can get it online for under $280.
