  • Roofing Nailer time.

    Time for a new roofing nailer.
    I have 90% Hitachi so I'm really leaning that way.
    My choices seem to be going older style, (NV45AB2,NV45AB2S) or going for the newer version (NV45AE, NV45AES) and I have to decide if I want a bottom or side loader.
    I'm going to miss the NV45AB, and was wondering if there is really any benefit to the side loaders, and if the newer versions are really improved. Or, should I be searching Ebay for another NV45AB.

    Whats your opinion?

    i think you should consider a bostitch rn46 its light and very easy to reload

      DUDE!!! this past fall, my dad and i helped a fellow church member redo his roof...he borrowed a cousins hitachi nailer and good god that thing was so light...never missed a nail either...probably was one that you're mentioning...

      my dad wants one SOOOO bad...unfortunately we can't find one that light anymore...i swore it was like 3 lbs (probably exagerated but it was so light compared to my dad's craftsman)...

      anything like that out there anymore?

            Sell them, na I'm in the building business so I think I'll keep them. There are plenty more of them out there in this world though.

                I didn't realize they stopped making them, my last 2 I bought was 1 1/2 years ago, from a company called Diamond Drill in Duluth MN. They sell new and reconditioned tools. Mine were new. So I guess I'm sitting on 4 guns, that might be a son of a gun to buy parts for. Next time I'm at Diamond Drill I'll ask them about all of this. Thanks for the heads up....

                  we have 4 bostitch nailers and i love them. i think they say they are like 4.5lbs or something but we have beat the crap out of them for the last few years with no problems.

                    NV45AB2 Hitachi nailer


                    www.amazon.com
                    search for NV45AB2

                    clik on new and used portion of the menu

                    scroll down to the bottom of the resulting page and it is $199 + $11.50 shipping



                    www.reconditionedsales.com
                    search for NV45AB2

                    this is a RECONDITIONED nailer

                    I've used this company for several purchases directly as well as Amazon.com to them ---- have found it cheaper nearly every time to go through Amazon... have no idea why they'd sell cheaper that way instead of direct .....
