I bought one of these because I saw the commercial and had to have it. Well, I got it and have been using it in my bathroom remodel and must say this is an instrument of God. We wouldn't be anywhere near where we are now without this thing. You can hammer at impossible angles with it and it takes you all of a couple of seconds to hammer a nail. I love this thing.

Cost, charge and run times?

Palm nailers are similar, probably more powerful, no battery, just a hook up to the air compressor.

Lugging a compressor, generator, hoses, etc. around 40 acres is kind of a pain. That looks like a better alternative. ;)

$100 and it holds a charge for a while. It's a 12 v battery(die hard no less) and we used it for hours and it never lost it's charge. According to the manual, it will work until it's charge is completely gone. It won't slow down like a battery powered drill.

Those palm nailer's will drive in anything from a finishing nail to a ten inch spike. They work great for putting up pole barns. I have several different kinds of air nailer's.

You sound like a hammer salesman circa 26 AD or so.

And I was all fired up over my new dustbuster.


That looks cool, but I am more in need of an electric screwdriver or drill.

Believe me. Hammer 1 nail with this and you'll be hooked.

I just seen the commercial on TV last night. It was love at first sight.

It looks like a must have for me, even though I have no idea when I might use the thing!
