Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weeddoc This is the one framing carpenters use.
Light weight with good grip. I have other tools of this brand and they are good. I checked with good quality framers in my area and this is one of the most popular. It came with the 'air chuck' already in. works great. I like it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie28 No good
I used to be a believer in Hitachi Tools ...
If this unit is not repaired or replaced I will
badmouth them every chance I get . This is the second one of these I've had , I returned it for the same exact reason!!! this is a common problem with the motor on these compressors ....according to numerous other reviews I've read.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by latimh This product is flat out dependable!
Three years ago I purchased this same compressor for an alternate easy to load and move around. I found that I used it as much or more as my larger compressor. I was able to frame, trim and use select shop tools without delay. I have just purchased 2 more of these compressors do to company expansion. I could not find them in stores so I located them on Home Depot web site and ordered them. With the tank size this compressor is not for any application but for its size it has served me well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tmhgator Fantastic, lightweight, easy to use Framing nailer
I have been using this nail gun extensively on a major home renovation and basement remodels. It has worked flawlessly. It is lightweight (which makes using it all day long easy) and durable. Due to it's light weight, I am careful to not drop it from any great height, but have dropped it and it continues to work flawlessly. Do not hesitate in purchasing this item. You will love it as I do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WesR Great shop tool.
Very pleased with the compressor. However, I was dismayed when I read in the owners manual that it was to be used for nailers and similar tools. This was not mentioned when I bought it. I assume this is because it is not rated for continuous duty. I decided the way I use it for general use in my woodworking shop will be ok. It will not be used for continuous duty. So far no problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toneman Great compressor
Haven't used it a lot, just a trim nailer and Palm nailer. It's quiet, which is great. The only thing I would say that's bad is it's heavy. But hopefully that means it's built well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BoholDennis never had a chance because of rare nails.
After buying this Hitachi gun at the right price, I was surprised to find out that buying 30 degree clipped head nails for it is very difficult. For this reason I am returning the gun unused. I am disappointed that Home Depot would sell a tool and then not carry the needed additional components to insure the tool will do its job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIGKIELBASSA This Hitachi framing nailer works flawlessly
Eats every brand of nail I feed it . Just squirt some Marvel Air tool oil into it every now and then. Beats the heck out of smacking your fingers with a hammer :). Just keeps on working day in and day out. I am very happy with this nailer.
