Does tool only mean no battery or charger with it?

Asked by: Catfish
yes Catfish, that is exactly what it means

Could this be used to secure 1x4's to 2x4 stud?

Asked by: al
No. Max fast. length for this 16ga tool is 2". You'd be doing nothing more than "tacking" a 2x4 in place - hardly what SECURE means!

Can this be used for framing nails?

I am looking for a non pneumatic option for framing. Can I use nails that are "framing quality" on this for framing some walls? If not, do you know of some other options. I am not sure if its worth my investment in an air compressor.
Asked by: brandeeno
No. This uses "finish" nails. What you want is something a "Paslode"-type nailer that uses common or construction type nails.

Does the Ryobi cordless nailer use special nails, or will any brand of nail work?

Asked by: ToolGuy
Most any straight 16 gauge nail should work, as long as it fits in the gun, it should fire.

It uses a battery instead of an air compressor. It's slightly more portable since you're not tethered with an air line as well. I purchased this for use on a a particular project, knowing that air might be an issue with my build location, and it has worked ok, but after using it, I fear I may not use it again, this is review is to warm potential users of that experience. My ONLY experience is with pine and cedar so I can't speak of harder woods, but this thing put 2" nails in with no problems. I had no issue with head sinking, and not one single jam. My two operational concerns were these; 1. Trying to put in consecutive nails. With air, you can "pop" nails in a high rate until you run out of air, with this electric gun I found that I could pop off 5-6 nails and then it would "slow down" 2. There is a recoil time for the spring to reset, so popping off a series of nails is near impossible, you're not going to go off and stripe a piece of trim in 10sec, it will take you 30-60sec (this is related to #1) More positives, I wasn't counting nails precisely, but I used this tool all day and went through 10-12 strips of 16ga, 1 1/4, and maybe 4-6 2" nails and still had 3/4 of a 4Ah battery, based on the battery's built-in gauge. So I am pretty impressed by that. Other items of note; The nail gun is heavy and large. This is not a big deal for a lot of DIY projects, which is what this marketed for, but be aware that extended periods of use will reveal this, especially if you are used to its pneumatic brethren. It's much larger in physical size as well. I'd say 75% thicker, and taller. Of course the nail carriage is about the same, but the rest of it is larger. Overall I give the nail gun 3/5 stars because it works, just how you'd expect it to, and that's a great thing. My lack of 5 starts is simply about ergonomics and the limitations of spring/battery nails guns and my preferences. As well, I think with the cost, you as a potential buyer have to weigh out the investment into this single-tasker, or evaluate buying a small compressor and conventional pneumatic setup, where the tank and hose can be used for other types of tools. I'm on the fence since the whole investment is tied up in ONE function. Lastly, I've only worked with this tool for three (3) days so this review doesn't include any thoughts on longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done.... without a cord! This nailer works great. It is a bit larger in size, due to being cordless, but I would buy it all over again.

I've only owned this tool for a few days, so this review only pertains to my initial reaction to the tool. I can't speak to the longevity of the tool or the batteries. I purchased this nailer primarily based on price/ features compared to other nailers (both air and cordless). This seemed to be in the sweet spot for me as it is only a small step up from an air nailer (not counting batteries) while also being significantly less expensive than other cordless nailers. I bought this tool to help on a hardwood flooring install to face nail (and tongue nail) in areas that my flooring nailer couldn't reach. The tool has worked flawlessly driving thru 3/4" white oak flooring into plywood. Plenty of power. Accuracy is on par with other nailers- it took me about 20 minutes of fiddling to get to my desired level of proficiency to start working on the real project. Shot about 3 sleeves of nails so far and battery still shows full charge, so I'm inclined to believe the stated claims on battery life. No jams/ misfires/ no fires for me not counting my initial learning curve when getting used to the tool. Nail set is acceptable and consistent once you get the settings dialed in. I am still having an occasional nail that needs set (like 2-3 out of 100)- but I think this is user error. It is a little on the heavy side, but not compared to other cordless nailers. The led lights are a great feature and I like them more than I thought I would. Since this will drive nails thru 3/4" oak, I can't image a job that this nailer couldn't handle. Regarding the Ryobi One + battery platform- you have to buy a battery with this tool. It made sense for me to buy a kit with a couple of tools rather than just a bare battery. This added some unexpected costs, but overall I ended up with a few extra tools and a couple of batteries rather than just one battery. Depending on what specials they are running at the time this may or may not be a good idea, but something to consider.

Just got one for Christmas so I haven't used it too much, though Christmas morning I put it through its paces on a bunch of junk wood. Some specifics: First, I own several Ryobi One+ tools so I have a bunch of batteries, I used the High Capacity Lithium+ for the tests I ran, fully charged of course. The gun came with 16ga 2.5" nails which I used as well. I pulled several pieces of junk wood out of my junk wood box, some 2x4's, 3/4" plywood, old pieces of baseboard, etc. Loading the gun with nails is easy, just pull back the retention until it clicks, load nails, then release the retention. I started by stacking two 2x4's on top of one another and driving nails through them. The first few did not drive below the surface so I messed around with the air pressure adjustment and depth adjustment which got the nails driving to just below the surface. The adjustments are easy to make, no tools required. I also messed around with the bump feature, this is controlled by a switch on the unit that allows rapid fire of nails (hold trigger, bump gun against wood to fire nail). Once depth adjustments were made I fired 15-20 nails in rapid succession, first through two 2x4's then through a piece of baseboard on top of 3/4" plywood on top of a 2x4. All nails went in perfectly, I'm sold. One note on the rapid fire, when the nail fires there is a slight delay, I'm guessing this is the internal pneumatic's charging and firing. The gun itself is rather large and on the heavy side. Again, the pnuematic's are built into the unit hence the larger size/weight versus a traditional pneumatic finish nailer that hooks up to a compressor. Despite the larger size, it's not awkward to handle. I believe that not being tethered to an air-hose will ultimately make this gun easier to handle then my current pneumatic nailer. Overall I'm very pleased with this gun. I can't comment on # of nails/battery as I have not used it enough, though I'm a weekend DIYer so I doubt I'll ever had a project where I'm shooting enough nails to kill a battery.

You buy a low cost nail gun, you get one that does not work. I was remodeling a couple of rooms in my house and after reading the reviews, thought I could get by with this Ryobi gun. Big mistake. You get what you pay for. The first one I purchased at HD worked for about 1000 nails and then stopped. Waste two hours bringing it back. Gun #2 won't even drive 1 1/2 nails fully into soft wood - you have to bang every nail in, no matter where you set the depth or pressure. Now instead of remodeling this morning, I need to waste another two hours taking it back to HD for a Paslode or Dewalt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible gun I write a lot of reviews so I do know what Tools work well and what ones don't. I'd get a compressor and air nailer before I buy a cordless one again. It never sunk the nails all the way in and it was adjusted the right way to do so. I always had to hammer the finishing nails into the trim and I was trying to avoid having to do that with the nice trim I was laying down. I returned the gun after having it for just one day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 18 volt straighter nailer Great value, good for thin wood work, anything more than 3/4 inch you will need to get a heavier nailer. Easy to load and use, job completed on a focal wall of reclaimed wood, Depth adjustment was a small issue, about 20% of nails had to finish driving in with hammer. Overall good quality for the price.
