I’m considering the newer Porter Cable BN200B oilless 18 guage brad nailer. Is there any reason I would want to avoid an oilless nailer vs a nailer that requires daily oil (such as the older BN200A)?

Many thanks-

No, oil less nailers have been around for decades. Senco originally came out with them in the 1980’s. Their main benefit is that they do not splatter oil onto your workpiece. There is no down side to them other than if you put oil in them because you forget their oil less.

Scott, I have used the Bostich line of nailers for years without any problem. As Mvflaim said their biggest advantage is not spraying oil.
