I have been searching for a decent brad nailer for some time. I have had a collection of corded nailers from various companies all with the same core issues: Constant jamming, not powerful enough to sink the nail, or won't last (some less than a year). However, this brad nailer has power. I don't have any issues flush sinking nails, through anything. It doesn't jam, but if it does, I don't have to get out a screw driver, and a bunch of special tools to fix it. The front un-clips with a heavy duty clip allowing you to clear a potential jam quickly and efficiently. This nailer is built to last. From the moment you pick it up, you can tell it is built sturdy. Especially compared to my past nailers, Plus the added features like the dual LED lights, and two separate adjustments really make it a great buy. I bought several of the $60 to $80 nailers and they didn't work. I'm so glad spent the extra money and got this one instead. It is definitely worth it.
Bought one 18 months ago and it worked great for about 3 months and then just went pfffft when firing. Returned it for another one. It, too worked great for a month and it started going pfffft all too often to be dependable. Never jammed - just wouldn't shoot. Warranty was used and now am considering maybe another brand.
I was impressed how heavy duty this tool is. I’ve cycled a few brads through it and it performs very well. I’m going to be putting it through it’s paces soon. Will update after that but so far impressed with the quality. Also, I have multiple tools that use the 19.2 v batteries which gives me one power source to deal with.
I bought this in mid December and I’m very pleased with its functionality. It drives and sets the nails as advertised. However, it does not come with a belt clip as advertised. In addition, you are not able to purchase one or have them send you one. Other than that, it works great.
I’m basing this review an ever ties performance and in-store handling of the product, I have an actually used the one I purchased yet. The nailer has the feel of high quality and craftsmanship. I look forward to using it in my new home in the spring.
Ordered and received from Sears. Opened and missing the belt clip and owners manual. I should have gone to HD and gotten its twin ... Ryobi, with the battery and charger, all for a lower price than this tool only deal. I contacted Sears, and contacted them again, and again, oh, and again. Just trying to get them to send the belt clip. No response. No one home. Or, probably no one cares. Sears is consistent. You can expect this each time. There is only one place left is our entire area with a store front, a small store (private seller) and they offered to order the belt clip for me from Sears Parts Direct. It would cost $10 for the clip and $19.99 shipping. NO.
