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 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 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2009djltmb Way to go Hitachi
I bout this framing nailer to replace my old Dewalt nailer.
Firs the home depot team shipped really fast.
Regarding the nailer woooo One of the best framing nailer I have ever work with. Light weight easy to handle it.
berry, berry well constructed super heavy duty materials.
Some times wen I was using other nailers, you need to bump up the materials and the best way is to use the back of the nailer to do it.
But always worry about doing it cause the materials was not that heavy duty. With this one no problem you can hit the 2x4 or other materials with out worry.
Nailing materials is so easy, there is barely back impact, not like others, that wen you hit the trigger you get a strong impact.
This one is a soft impact that make you feel like you in control of your nailer.
The fixture of a fast nails is so cool. Just turn the lock pin to the fast set, pull the trigger and hold it and it will nail the material as fast as you impact every single time.
Very fast for fences, plywood installation Etc.
I recommend this nailer to any one that is looking to purchase one of this nailer, you wont be disappointed.
Hope this help dose that are in the process of getting a framing nailer.

This is a great product, I have been very happy with mine, I have used it many large projects as the single nail gun to nail a lot of sheathing as well as 3 1/2" nails for studs and other heavy nails, it has always performed flawlessly, I dont know what people are talking about it not feeding, I have used mine in every position imaginable with no issues, maybe they got a bad one, love the plastic collated nails so much better than wire, I definitely would buy this one again and would also like to have the NR83 so I dont have to switch out nail strips as much, I love how lightweight this nailer is

Like the guy on 3/15 said, lots of jamming and feeding problems. I have been using Hitachis only for the past 35 years and bought this one for the flush nailer, that part I like. Don't know why they changed the design, but missed the boat on this one. As long as you are nailing flat or down it seems to work OK. Nailing vertical I have found that I can only load one strip of nails at a time. I you are only using it part time or not professionally it works fine. But you can't beat the nr83. Someone is probably still using the ones that they stole from me over 20 years ago that had well over a million nails through them.
