I’m in the process of acquiring tools for my shop and I’m trying to decide on whether to buy the Ridgid or Hitachi 18 gauge nailer (I’ve listed the models below). I’ve used the Hitachi model since a young age while working with my father. I’ve always liked the gun and it did a fine job helping us earn a living. I’m also considering the Ridgid, I’ve never owned a Ridgid tool I didn’t like. I like that the Ridgid is oil free, I’m just more comfortable with the Hitachi because I’ve used it in the past. I’m curious if anyone would be able to offer me some insight for this decision. Thanks a lot for your help!
Ridgid R213BNA 21178 18-Gauge 2-1/8-Inch Brad Nailer
Hitachi NT50AE2 18-Gauge 3/4-Inch to 2-Inch Brad Nailer
