I have the craftsman evolv I got off of ebay. It works good for the trim in my house and in my shop. If you are doing it for a living I would get something better though

I’d vote for gettign a small little 1 gallon compressor and then run any of your existing nail guns off of it. I use that with a coil hose anytime I’m doing interior work or even small shop projects. The coil hose is key so you don’t have to worry about wiiding all this hose up all the time.

I have one of these. It is over 5 years old and still works great. I have used it for I need a couple of nails to trimming a whole house. you can stand next to it and talk without a problem. It will run all my trim guns. you just have to remember it is a small compressor. It will run short if you are trying to run with it. it is small enough to fit in a milk crate. It is a great investment and saved me a pile of money on cordless nail guns.

I’ve not used the Dewalt cordless nailer, but I have used the Paslode framing and finish nailers, and they are excellent. The Dewalt, to my eyes, doesn’t look as nice, but again, I’ve not used it personally.

The Paslode models I’ve used are the framing and angled finish nailers. Both do the job with minimal fuss. You have to charge the little 6V battery and buy a few gas cylinders, but it’s way better than lugging a compressor around and listening to it all day.

My wife’s cousin owns a company that installed over 9000 replacement windows last year.

They LOVE the DeWalt cordless nail guns. They work in occupied homes, and quickly move from room to room, so no hose is a big plus.

Have your say...
