  • Hardi-Plank

    Hi guys,just wondered what some of you use to fasten hardi-plank lap siding. Reason i ask, my Bostitch coil nailer blew a seal 2day. Dropped it off at the repair shop,but it's gonna be 3 days! I need an alternative so i can complete this job. All sheathing is OSB plywood. The coil nailer works pretty good, but im always looking for better ways! I heard of somebody using screws to fasten the siding before,any feedback is greatly appreciated!

          I have the Hitachi nr90ad, i think thats the model? I think it will leave too big of a hole in the siding? You dont think so?

            no, because it gets nailed towards the top, where it will be covered by the lap of the next piece

              any gun with adjustable drive depth will work, even a roofing gun if on stud and sheathing. You could always go with a hammer to remind yourself how us old boys had to do it
