Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by somsmiyi The best product and deal ever!
I've been wanting an air compressor for so long and this is a deal that nobody should miss. I did my research and found that there is no other bundle that could beat this price and quality and if you do find a cheaper bundle, I can assure you that it will not include a 15 Gauge nailer, if it does, it wont be anything close to a Hitachi brand quality. One day when I was coming back from work I found three chairs on the side of the road, I took them home and decided to repaint and upholster them. I wish I had found this deal before sanding and painting the chairs, I would have bought a spray gun attachment and did a more professional job on the paint but even with a brush I think the end result looks great especially that I used the Hitachi nailer and compressor to put on a new fabric and the process was a breeze, the nailer never jammed and the 6 gallon tank hold enough air that I managed to do both chairs without having to turn on the compressor more than once. Not to mention filling up car tires to the recommended PSI which gives me the optimal miles per gallon. I would say go for it and buy this product, even if you don't need the nailers, gift them away, or if you don't need the compressor and just the nailers, its a win win deal!

Amazing value. Most combos don't include a 15 gauge finish nailer let alone an angled nailer. The one in this kit sells for not much less than this entire package. The quality of the Hitachi nailers is superior to the others. Others generally don't offer the contact repeater. The only drawback is that the compressor does not have as good of specs as many others such as the porter cable

After reading reviews on a few forums, websites, and talking to a few contractor buddies, I decided I liked the way the Hitachi name was revered as far as nail guns go, as well as the feel of their products in hand. I began looking online for a combo deal, expecting to spend upwards of $300 for a decent package.
I came across this combo here and at the time (11/12) it was listed at much less than that. My wife had to pick my jaw off the floor. I read and read and read, looking for some hint that I was getting damaged, returned, or refurbished gear, but after not seeing any hint of any of that, I took the plunge.
When I got the box in the mail, it was pristine. Everything was boxed nice and tidy, manuals were included, and all the accessories were brand new. I lubed up each gun, loaded them with the included nails, and nearly sprinted to my shop to try them out.
The brad nailer is lighter than the Senco I own, so I loved it immediately. The depth adjustment and single/multiple shot switch are easy to reach and work flawlessly. I can put 1 or 1000 brads into a 1x12 Cypress board and every single one of them is the exact same depth.
The Angled Finish Nailer is a tad heavier than some 16 gauge nailers I've used, but it isn't uncomfortably heavy. Just like the brad nailer, the finish nailer has depth adjustment and a single/multiple fire switch, which also works flawlessly. The air blower button on the back and adjustable vent make me grin every time I use them, and the slot to clear jams snaps open and shut with a satisfying click, unlike some other brands whose slots are difficult to get to and hard to ensure they're shut fully.
The compressor is rather loud, but builds pressure in a decent amount of time, and goes for a long time without having to build back up. The multiple quick disconnects preinstalled are a handy feature, and the regulator has a lock which gives me peace of mind. The power switch is a little harder to pull than I'm used to, but it definitely has a nice pop to it.
The hose is a typical freebie hose, so it has a coil memory, but with a few uses it loosens up nicely.
Safety glasses aren't the kind you would go out and buy, but they're not bad.
I haven't had a single jam in either nailgun in the 3 weeks I've owned them, and through the 1200+ nails I've shot.
I love this combo kit, and expected to pay much more than I did. If you're looking for reliability, dependability, and craftsmanship, look no further. All the internet reviews hit the nail on the head with this one.
