" Great product for this price. I don't think would be suitable for daily professional use but for DIY tasks really handy tool. Used for whole day, not a single jam... "

powerful electric nailer

By 121212abababab

" quite powerful compared to other electrics i have used before and works best if you use your spare hand to steady the tool . nails are quite thin and i have mainly used for internal second fix and to hold timber in place whilst glue is going off . good tool to have . "

Good bit of Kit
7 Mar 2015
By Sunshinepharma
, London
" Great bit of kit, and it did what it said on the box.
It does seem a bit powerful at times as it punched marks into the beading i was installing, although though experimenting with different angles it was fine.
It was easy to load, and was easy to clear when a nail jammed.
Could do with a longer lead.

perfect for what I need
11 Dec 2014
By billybob1
, belfast
" Good value for what it doesn't. Which is as the description says fastening timber to timber and second fix.
I was very nearly put off buying this by some reviews on other sites.....however if you follow the instructions is works fine. You get the odd nail that doesn't fire properly. But what tool does work 100% at this price bracket.
Definately worth considering. I use mainly for internal cladding and furniture making. Perfect for internal occasional use.

Good but of limited use!
31 May 2014
By Lukeforitt
, Newcastle
" I needed something for occasional light finishing jobs and found this to be not too bad. Using 50mm nails to fix architraves and hold glued skirtings, it works fine. It needs to be held firmly against the job to prevent "bounce". The nails are very thin, leaving very neat holes for filling and painting.
It is unsuitable for heavier work such as fencing but then it does cost only a hundred quid!
Decent carrying case.

Okay for light nailing
5 Apr 2014
By DIYerRob
, Ipswich
" Bought this gun to tack T & G planks to create an aviary bird-room. Disappointed at first, but practice taught me that you need to hold the gun down with your other hand to stop it bouncing of the work, otherwise the nail would be proud. Nails on the thin side, but compared to a pro gas gun, not bad value. Must have used 1000 nails on the project and happy with the results. Not for pro's really, but been a boon for me, considering having to secret nail by hand! "

Nail gun
5 Aug 2013
By Exceptional
, Stroud
" Bought for a one off job as this is not my normal modus operandi.
It was bought to secret nail a considerable run of 20mm bead and butt and seems, 1/3 of the way thru the job, to be doing the job I hope it would. The price was just about ok to justify time of labour saved and therefore passable on to the client "

spec
15 Dec 2014
By Spanks
, Ipswich
" The only real problem with this machine is the marketing side. This gun is not suitable for generators unless they produce 14.4kva. they do not specify the power that this machine needs. My generator produces 4 kva and is a 3000 watt out put, which is a good normal size. You need mains power for these machines. Previous comments like jam up sometimes is true and is a pain. These machines need to show the wattage as these machines need a lot more power than most tools that I have come across of this size. If they do not have enough power, they will only go in to the timber by a couple of mm. "

Utter Rubbish
1 Jul 2015
By Morgsta
, Southend on sea
" You'll spend more time releasing stuck nails or staples than actually using the thing. Staples are a complete waste of time, probably fires 10 staples before once again needing to be cleared of bent, broken or just stuck staples. Nails are a little better but have no grip and pull right out, only use if you are glueing also.
Fell apart after first 5 minutes of use

" Has no power whatsoever.
Could not fire a small brad more than 15mm into softwood architrave or 8mm into OSB.
Allegedly this machine has a 50mm capacity. "

Do not buy !!!
5 May 2015
By Anonymous
, Hertfordshire
" I picked one up yesterday from Screwfix. After 40mm it started jamming. Then drove back to Screwfix to get it replaced. They did not have stock, so I went to another store 30miles away.
They replaced it no problem.
After about 200 nails it started jamming again making outside flower boxes. Then ... it just stopped working all together.
So i did almost 80 miles yesterday, 2 of the same guns and never completed my flower boxes. What a disappointment all round.
Please do not waste your money on this product. "

Tacwise Nail Gun
4 May 2015
By chameleon
, Leeds
" Bought this specifically for tacking fence palings in place prior to screwing, gun simply ceased to function after a few minutes, replace without issue. this gun was fine until reloaded for the first time, flicked the power switch back on to be greeted with a strange noise and blue smoke coming from the body of the now dead gun. Maybe just a bad batch but twice bitten, time to cut losses, I'll have a refund and return to trusted hammer. Stack of brads and staples on the bench now, neither use nor ornament to me - expensive exercise. "

Useless!
17 Oct 2014
By Leweshi
, Lewes
" Won't put a nail in fully without having to hold the back of the nailer meaning you have to use both hands to operate it. They even stuck a sticker on the product explaing this!
Also jams up all the time & bends the head of nails over.
I've got a bostich first fix nailer which you can use one handed & is brilliant.
If this is all you can afford I suggest you don't bother & buy a hammer cos it's useless.
Or do like I've done & buy a proper gas one. "

Bag of Nails !!!!
28 Aug 2014
By PeteThePlumber
, Stourbridge
" Bought on for skirting and archraves, it shot no more than 20 nails and then stopped working. Total waste of money, took it back for refund and now stuck with £10 worth of 35mm nails that don't seem to fit any of my mates guns.... Should have listened to the reports "
