    ive had the dewalt 18v gasless first fix for over 3 years now and it has never missed a beat, granted i nolonger use it for full trade use just weekend jobs and personal big projects but this is beyond a good nailer.

    no worries with warming up gas in your jacket etc and this will put a 90mm nail through anything (even block work however i would not recomend just in case as this was a total accident by my farther in law who is on the simple side at best bless him)

     

    if you have the dewalt kit XR stuff already then its a no brainer as you just get a bare unit and if you don't then its a good starting point (ive almost got the full kit of all xr tools and can do any form of wood working job in the middle of a filed no issue's)

     

    the gun will fire anything from 50mm to 90mm so you can use for close boards (50mm ringshank nails are best, firmhold from ebay are brilliant for the money) then there 90mm nails are perfect for a first fixing when doing stud / framing work to assemble things first before you screw or plate etc like a deck frame or pergola (even a roof for a flat which is why i purchased mine as i built a second house in the garden from scratch for our eldest to move out into )

    oh and a full battery lasted me a whole day doing the roofing frame in 6 x 2 timber and all the internal stud work which took 3 days only used 1 and a half batteries in charge, doing a 27m long clossboard fence i also did on 1 battery and thats all arris rails and boards and i think i still had half charge left

      I was recommended the hitachi by our carpenter, am not to confident with dewalt lately the drills and bits just dont seem to last bought a xr a year ago and its already going faulty cost £300 quid for the driver and drill, the radio does not turn off with out unplugging from its source and have had it replaced once already but the same thing happend! 

      Have you used the hitachi that does not require gas cartridges? Is it worth the extra cost? compared to buying cartridges?

      Thanks for the advice
