Yeah Ive used Paslodes for years but never owned my own as Ive never needed to. I have Bostitch air guns but only bradders and they are great but a guy who works with us has the gas finish nailer and its complete rubbish. Hes only had it a couple of months and its broken twice already. I might even go the air framer route as Ive already got a compressor.chippymart":17rfzroh said:I havent met anyone who likes the Hitachi yet. Bostitch are getting some good reviews at the moment and a few guys swear by the Makita one. Have never had a problem in 15 years with my paslode and still going strong.
