Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend a nail gun , but yes it's possible...as far as all the bad reviews on this product goes they're not true.., this stuff cuts easily with a diamond blade on a grinder, If you're over 60 you should probably enlist some help, YES it's heavy it's Concrete...try counter sinks and screws, you'll have a much better install and finished product.

Answer: 
This cannot be answered. Yes you can use a nail gun, you would use a 2 inch galvanized siding nailer but the pressure is determined onsite at the time as is depth of drive. Even the depth of drive is going to vary depending on if you are driving into old wood or new wood or a mixture.

Although the specialty concrete screws are the better option, I have hung hundreds of sheets with 2" galvanized roofing nails, shot with a Porter/Cable gun. Pressure? It varies with the gun and compressor. Use scrap to experiment, but remember, too much pressure will crush the impact point. Than makes that nail pretty much worthless.

I have completed Hardipanel installations with 2 different fasteners. 8d nails into the stud is best, you have to be very careful with the last 2 hammer strokes to just set the nail head. Over doing it with turn the material from strong to weak. This week I installed 11 panels with #10 flat head screws because I was going into 3/4" material and the studs were hit and miss. Same deal with the screws, it is easy to over torque and ruin the material. Predrilling for the screws is best, it is not easy to get screws to penetrate.
I would not use a nail gun
This product is awesome,
I always run a bead of clear paintable caulk between panels, just run the bead on the hung panel and slide the new panel in to squish that caulk into the joint

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dont do it. Brittle when nailing or bending etc,tough & dusty to cut, heavy & increase this list at Infinium. But most of all your nail heads all stick out u can not sink them into this stuff. If u nail past the outer layer the board just pops right around the nail. Wish I went with regular wood. July 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by looks nice and hard and dirty to cut youtube shows using knife or saw to cut it, I tried circular saw and the armature broken, seems very hard to cut it. I've tile installation experience and same saw used to cut concrete. mfg provides special tool but not cheap. March 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Beware of it limitations I put up dozens of sheets of this 4x8 siding panel and I honestly cannot recommend it unless you have a lot of strength, a lot of patience and a lot of help. While it seems indestructible it is actually pretty fragile, difficult to cut, very hard to set nails to the correct depth and will turn to mush if allowed to get wet and stay wet. For me, a scrap piece laying on the ground outside basically dissolved within a couple of years. It is made up of layers of cement and fabric, not solid cement. So after it is installed, overdriven nails caulked and filled and every point of entry of moisture sealed, it will hold up as promised I am sure. The problem is achieving that. If this material gets wet and stays wet, it will not outlast wood in the same situation. Needless to say it needs paint to help seal it. Having said that, I would use the Hardi Lap siding in its place. It is easier to handle, easier to cut, can be blind nailed so those points of entry are eliminated and requires more centralized caulking which is easier to do. The biggest issues with the large panels is exposed nails, sealing seams and the unmanageable weight. Those issues are mitigated with the lap siding. October 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hands-down the best siding product in the world In today's bland world of siding, my wife and I were looking for something different. Something paintable. Something for which WE can determine the colors, not pick from 9 shades of white. I sided a 32x52 barn with this stuff. Perfect. Currently siding my house with it. Lovely. Unless you love painting, buy it pre-primed. The extra cost is worth not having to put a coat of primer on. READ the instructions fully. Do it yourself according to the instructions or find a contractor willing to follow them. Do not take any shortcuts, do not let your installer take any, either. Any. Follow the best practices guide. Use the right nails. The manufacturer has awesome support -- you can call them with any question and they are happy to help. August 27, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything Resistant.! This Fiber Cement Siding is durable and everything resistant! To mention some, it resists cracking, splitting, rotting and swelling. The moisture-resistant siding can withstand severe weather. Very easy to paint. (you should) I bought 3 of this from Home Depot to make my generator /utility shed. Once installed, it is good for at least 100 years, as long as you leave it alone. Handle with care, it can break. January 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tip for undersink use I use this to protect the interior of the sink vanities and cabinets in my rental houses. It seems that no matter what you do, a sink will ultimately leak or the home's occupants will spill some of the most damaging "wet stuff" under there and you will struggle to make it look decent again. I've had to replace multiple vanities and cabinets before I used HardiePanel to protect them. No more. I cut a section of HardiePanel to fit (sometimes two sections if there is an obstruction) under the sink, place it smooth side up, screw it down, caulk with silicone on the edges, paint with a semi-gloss oil-based paint and the bottom of the vanity stays beatiful, renter after renter. Saves me $100's of dollars in time and money at move out or when they finally report a leak to me. My wife likes the look so much she wants me to do the same under our sinks. March 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This is a great DIY siding project i think a lot easier than vinyl or anything else i just did a addition with 7 panels in a half a day or so. The factory website offers a lot of info on product and my local store offered the different style that they dont show you on here. June 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by remodeling outside i was remodeling the outside of my recently aquired house and came across this panel. its quick and easy. best product for ur money, and last longer than siding. you dont have to worry about wind dammage. May 4, 2010
