Answer: 
Sounds like the back cover has come loose. Check your manual it seems that there was a method described in there on how to clean a filter that sits under that cover. It may help you get it sealed back up.
Good Luck!

Answer: 
Put some air tool oil in it. I get that occasionally because i don't have a water separator on my little compressor i use. As with all air tools, oil frequently and enjoy long life.

Answer: 
That does happen. Tighten the 4 1/4" cap head hex screws on the back side of the body every once in a while and you shouldn't have that issue anymore. I had the exact same issue with mine and it seems that the striking motion will loosen those screws up over time. The factory torque also didn't seem to be very high.

Answer: 
From that description, it sounds like that palm nailer unit has a bad internal seal. We apologize for the difficulty, and it should be returned to the distributor for exchange, with a properly working unit.

I just measured the inside diameter of the nail head opening at a hair over 3/8". If the nail head of your floor cleat is under that, it shouldn't have an issue.

Answer: 
According to the manual, this tool operates nominally at 100PSI, but it doesn't give a rating for CFM specifically. Rather, it talks about .1 cuft per cycle. I can only assume that a single cycle is equivalent to a single blow of the hammer. Different sized nails will require a different number of cycles to drive them. Most recently, I used this tool to drive 16D nails. This is probably the top end of Read More
According to the manual, this tool operates nominally at 100PSI, but it doesn't give a rating for CFM specifically. Rather, it talks about .1 cuft per cycle. I can only assume that a single cycle is equivalent to a single blow of the hammer. Different sized nails will require a different number of cycles to drive them. Most recently, I used this tool to drive 16D nails. This is probably the top end of the cycle requirement. It's likely that this takes between 40 and 50 cycles per nail, so 4-5 cuft per nail. I certainly wasn't moving super quickly, so I was maybe driving one every few minutes. So at a high end, I might say 5 CFM? Now if you have a pancake compressor, this would probably cause it to run a lot. But get one with a slightly larger tank and you should be ok. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Won't ever leave home without it So pleasantly surprised by this little beast. Easy to operate, drives a huge variety of nails (actually use it for up to 4in so far with no problem) and it leaves no discernable marks even on soft wood. For saving time and energy and not sacrificing quality, it was worth every penny! May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I Can't Believe that I waited so long to discover this Awesome Tool! I have a 5HP Quincy Air Compressor with a 60 gallon tank. The compressor is setup with a module to adjust output pressure, filter, and add lubricant oil to the air for tools. We are installing a large loft in my barn/shop/garage and on a whim I purchased this tool to try for speeding up installation of the joist hangers. Without a doubt this is going to be one of my favorite tools. I was able to drive 1-1/2 galvanized joist hanger nails and small headed 10d galvanized nails both with ease. The larger 16d type nails are easier to steer, but with a small amount of practice I was able to steer the smaller nails quite easily as well. It helps on the smaller headed nails if you make sure the nail is resting flat inside the nail gun and pointed the direction you intend for it to head before putting enough pressure on the nail head to trigger the driving action. I was running this tool at 120 psig and had no problems whatsoever. I only wish I had decided to buy this thing years ago! May 2, 2016
