An open nose design permits the clearing of jammed nails with ease. The Hitachi NR83A2 framing nailer also features a tool free depth adjustment. A catch is located near the nose of the nail gun which allows for a quick adjustment when moving between different woods and thicknesses. The 2 piece nail cartridge is made from stainless steel, and has been created for swift / easy loading of round head plastic strip nails. The handle is covered by a comfortable rubber grip.
The NR83A2 can be operated in 1 of 2 different modes. Firstly in an intermittent firing mode - best suited to precision fastening. The other mode is the continuous firing state. So when activated, the bump action firing method will continuously fire nails.
Steve from the US has this to say:
'Only framing nailer I will ever use. Nothing is faster or more durable, nothing.'
'I have put 100,000's of nails through my gun w/o a single problem. I am very hard on guns, example: I will use this gun like a sledge hammer by beating walls, holding it by the mag and swinging. People having issues with the second stick of nails riding atop the first should know it's probably the nails and not the gun. There are a million different brand of nails made for this gun and they are not all alike. There is a reason this design has been around for 25 years, you can not build a better mouse trap. I can not stress enough how much better this gun is compared to any other framing gun on the market.'
This is a heavy duty option that's great for the pressure that a contractor will put it through, or for a lifetime of flawless use by DIY enthusiasts. The Hitachi NR83A2 is an inexpensive quality nail gun that everyone in the market should consider.
