I have the gun for 2 weeks and it seems to have plenty of power. I used it so far to nail 5/4 PT decking to Pt 2x4 fence rails with no issues. It so nice not to fire up a compressor, just load the nails and put on the battery and fire away.
Don't give up your compressor. I bought this gun because I don't like the noise of a compressor in an occupied residence when I'm working. Well I've been using this gun pretty hard the last few days and it jams about every third nail if you don't let the motor rev up before pulling the trigger. So the bump feature is worthless. And the unjamming lever does not release the firing piston if a nail is stuck in it. And that's why it jammed in the first place. So buy a long small screw drive to force the piston back till it releases then the nail falls out. And don't worry about the two speeds leave it set on the highest. I am using 2 5/8 nails and then it will give them it won't drive a 3 1/2 in anything treated or used lumber. It also won't drive through a knot, so if you have lumber with on in the end cut from the other end to waist the knot. The battery life is great. And it is nice to not need a hose. But it's not a good for a professional, or anyone who uses it like I beat on my other DeWalt tools. Almost all my tools are yellow, but I wish my yellow framing gun was a good as the yellow finish gun.
I boughtthe got and works good on untreated wood but won't work for other material like hardboard trim or treated lumber
Ive had this framing gun for about a year now and has not jammed once. Very conveniant and so useful in construction. I work in hvac new construction where production is everything and this helps out alot. Only downside is the weight which is why i knocked off a star [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Wanted framing nailer without the hose, that would handle 3-1/2" 0.131 clipped or full-head nails to comply with building codes. The ability to handle 30-34 degree paper tape is good. Would have liked this better if it could hold 2 sticks of nails plus the lock-out amount of 7-9 nails. As a casual DIY person I can work with this. Out of the box the depth setting was too deep, but it was easy to adjust without tools. Would have preferred a hard case instead of a bag, and bag should have a better zipper.
I've had this gun for a few months now, no complaints as to how it works. Nice to be able to use it in some remote places without having to drag a compressor around.Gun works great, my only complaint is the cheesy bag it comes in... why no hard case to protect my nice nailgun??
Got nailer about a week ago and getting ready to send back. Purchased nailer to built front deck and doesn’t drive nails thru treated lumber and constantly jams after ONE NAIL. Purchased nails (3 1/4”) according to nail specifications in user manual. Worked well with the first few nails but when it got down to the last 4-5 nails then the jamming started. Put in new set of nails an started jamming after trying to drive one nail. Nail one jam, nail one jam, nail one jam........I give up. Very disappointed with this product. Would not recommend based on my experience.
