Answer: 
Be careful which nails you buy. I had the issue of nails jamming in the gun. I sent it for repair and was told that I wasn't using the DA style nails even though the package said it works for 15 gauge guns. HD sells one brand of DA "style" nails -which I am reluctant to try because another contractor brought the same gun in for repair after using that brand of nails. I find it very misleading that HD Read More

Answer: 
Depends what kind of job your doing. If you're trimming out a whole house and you pretty much do this for a living like I do then I'd recommend a 100 ft. hose. However if you're a DIY and just work around the house a 50 ft. would work just fine. If you use a 100 ft. hose make sure you have an adequate compressor that is capable of reaching 150 psi's.

Answer: 
There is not a designated or recommend hose size for use with the RIDGID R250AFE. The unit has a 70-120 PSI requirement, so a air hose that can consistently deliver/provide that pressure range could be used.+

Answer: 
15-gauge nails are much more stout than 18-gauge, and are my preference for base, door and window trim. For little projects that are glued then tacked, the 18-gauge is fine.

This will do an excellent job for all the projects you listed. I have done so for trim, cabinet making and 6 ft cedar fencing with excellent results. It is very easy to use and I've had no issues. It also works great for making chicken coops...:)

What size divot does this leave in the material?

October 18, 2015
I've been using a cheaper 16-gauge finish nailer and my main problem with it is that it's a nailer/stapler and leaves an extra wide divot.

I'm assuming that since this gun (I think) is just a nailer, it would leave a smaller divot ... what size is it roughly? Could anyone post an image?

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Nailer. Be aware of the description. 2.5 " into hardwood ??? Nice product but I purchased this to face nail unfinished hardwood. It claims the ability to nail a 2.5" nail into hardwood. It jammed about every 4-6 nails. I switched to 1.5" nails and no issue. October 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Drives 2 1/2" finish nails into 3/4" pine ALMOST I'm a finish carpenter by trade so I expect my tools to perform. This nail gun is advertised to sink nails into oak, which I find hard to believe because it regularly would not sink them into pine. Also note that my compressor was not at fault, it puts out plenty of pressure for the other guns on the job. If you have the time to sink nails with your punch and hammer then this is a good buy. It feels like good build quality but for production work look elsewhere. October 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This finish nailer is great This thing shoots nails great and is easy to line up and put the nail where you want it. It has plenty of power. I've been a pro remodeling homes for over 30 years and tried a lot of nail guns. Many of them are weak and can't drive a nail like it should. This nail gun is great. I had and old Bostitch finish nailer for about 12 years and finally had to retire it. For the past 15 years I suffered through Senco, Bostitch, and Hitachi. Finally! A nailer that does what its supposed to do. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice framing nailer Bought this to build a shed, works great, will be using it for a goat house and then my house :) Love the 2" to 3 1/2" capacity as it works well for framing and sheathing!! Also love the jam clearing feature. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PERFECT TOOL I HAVE other Rigid tools and this nailer another perfect fit September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good nailer I have had not problems with the gun, seems very smooth. I have not gotten any good information about the nails. I am using dewalt da nails and have no problems. The included nails appear the be senco, but there is not identification on the box. The instruction book was useless for nail purchasing or even what brands would be preferred. There is a distinct difference on the nail heads, so i guess that only time will tell, I hate to go buy more nails. Really nice product, but the nail issue leaves me a bit apprehensive.
