A favorite among builders, the Hitachi NR83A2 pneumatic nailer is certainly a great addition to the weekend warriorâ€™s tool shed. The unit can be purchased for around $300 and is worth every penny. At just under 8lbs., the comfortably gripped NR83A2 wonâ€™t cause physical strain while working on those big projects.
This framing nailer has a sequential actuation switch which can operate in either single-fire position for precise nail placement or bump firing mode for production speed. The 3/8â€ air inlet allows up to 120 PSI of pressure. The round head framing nailer can hold up to 70 fasteners (between 2â€ and 3 Â¼â€) at a time with a well-designed two-piece steel magazine [884-065]. Measuring 21 x 4 x 13, the larger sized nailer is made for regular to heavy usage. Its assembly also includes an open nose [884-060] to clear rare instances of jamming.
The NR83A2 is user friendly with a tool-less depth adjustment. An added bonus is the simplicity of shifting the air pressure on the gun rather than repetitively going back to the air compressor to make the changes. The NR83A2 unit also includes three hex wrenches and a pair of safety glasses. For further ease on the job, get the Hitachi 19413F 100 x Â¼â€ polyurethane air hose. Itâ€™s practically kinkless, and the length will save time on those big nailing projects like rough framing, trusses and sheathing.
The Hitachi NR83A2 is virtually indestructible. Itâ€™s not uncommon to hear stories of construction workers accidentally dropping the framing nailer from rooftops or scaffoldings onto concrete with it still functioning as well as the day it was purchased.
