Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHam Worked great right out of the box.
Bought it to install 1100 sq ft of flooring in a new house, and only jammed twice. All you have to do is oil it and keep adding staples and it will work all day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NJSeriousHI Great product, easy to use.
I'm a DIY who started doing framing in the 70's, then went to college for computer science and have always kept in touch with the construction industry. So when I decided to convert my porch into a sunroom, with a hardwood floor, I chose the Freeman nailer.
The device worked great, right out of the box, using 2" L nails at 95 to 100 PSI and a compressor with a 5 gal. reserve. Because of my experience with framing, I didn't notice any problem requiring me to swing extra hard to drive the nails into 3/4" oak on top of 5/8" subflooring.
Just a safety note, use ear protectors, it is loud.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeyP Very good DIY Nailer
I had 400 sq feet of 3/4" maple plank flooring to put down. I wasn't sure how long this would take and didn't want to rent a nailer for the cost and also for the condition of some of the rental nailers so I took the plunge and purchased this nailer.
My only other experience is with a Bostitch nailer, which I didn't want to purchase due to the cost and the frequency of my use. Let me tell you, this nailer worked 100% flawlessly!!!!! Opened it up, the nailing plate was already installed and setup for 3/4" flooring (Note that it is labeled as 25/32", which will work for both 3/4 and 5/8" flooring). Put a few drops of oil in it and got it set up.
I used 2" Bostitch L cleats and did a few test fires, finally arriving at 90 psi on my Porter Cable pancake compressor. From there on out, approximately 1500 cleats later, not 1 misfire! It doesn't take much striking force with the mallet to set the nails.
Not sure how this would hold up to day in and day out use of a professional, but for the occasional hardwood floor, this nailer is a great buy. Keep it oiled and let it rip. Plus it has a case which makes it even better and a 7 year warranty!
I had reservations on the purchase but I more than happy that I did it. I never write reviews but felt I had to share on this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by windowman Great floor nailer
On my third room, works very well, no problems whatsoever. Must keep air pressure at 100 PSI to drive 2" L nails. For an economy nailer, very impressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginkman Well Worth The $$$$$$
Needed to install 3/4 inch oak distressed flooring. Couldn't make up my mind to rent a gun or buy one. Most guns I looked at were between the $4oo and $500 range. I decided to look online and came across this kit at my local HD. Read the reviews which were favorable and the price was really reasonable for a flooring nailer. So I took the plunge and bought it. Let me tell you. This thing worked flawlessly from start to finish. Not one misfire or problem with this gun. Seems very well made out of quality parts. And with a 7 year warranty how could I go wrong. Set my compressor at 100 PSI and every staple was driven in PERFECTLY. I own a lot of quality tools and none have impressed me as much as this nailer. Freeman knocked it out of the park with this tool. Where do you find this quality at this price anymore? I have never wrote a tool review before because you get what you pay for and it's no big deal. But this gun at this price point, I figured if helped some other guy in my situation why not. So men if you need a good tool without breaking the bank. THIS IS THE ONE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmateurDIYer So far, so very good
I received the Freeman 3-in-1 quickly and put it to work immediately, installing a pre-finished, 3/4-inch hardwood floor (Brazilian cherry) in a 150 sf room. Using just over 400 two-inch staples, I finished the project in about nine hours with NO jams or misfires. Regulated air pressure was set to about 95 psi. I did not lubricate the product during the project, but will do so before the next project. This product is every bit as good as the nailers I had been renting for $30-35 per day; it will save me money in the not-so long term as I have another 850 sf of hardwood flooring to install.
