Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jimmy60 This product fell apart on second day
The gun didn't make it thru one house of trimming. Some bolts fell out of it. Not sure where they go

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Riverdog Haven't used it yet...bought it in advance of some upcoming projects because it was on sale.
Please DISREGARD the first two ratings, overall rating and quality, as I have not used the item yet. The value seemed excellent to me, which is why I made the purchase.
The staff at the Home Depot tool rental department raved about this unit and recommended that I purchase it while on sale. They explained all the features and what to do to care for it by showing me the same nailer. They said it's a very popular rental because it's lightweight, easy to handle, and very efficient at doing a great job.
I'm going to be moving to another home within a few months and I know I'll have some projects wherever I may go, so I thought I'd just buy it in advance. In my present home I installed what seemed like a mile of various trims and moldings and nailed them all by hand. NEVER AGAIN!!! (I'm too old to fight with long lengths of crown molding and baseboards!)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bryan Good nail gun but difficult to find fuel cans for it
I have the Hitachi framing nai gun and I can use a variety of nails and 728982 fuel cans from Hitachi or Paslode with it. But this gas nail gun uses a difference 728981 fuel can that is much more expensive and much more difficult to find. Home Depot does not carry them in their stores or even sell it online.
The tool includes safety glasses which are wise to use as the plastic strip pieces are ejected toward the user's face and eyes at a high velocity.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sheldon7220 This product is great for nailing brickmold, 1/4 round. casing and tacking things in place.
VERY , VERY light with a nice belt holder on the side. Shoots 1 1/4" to 2 1/2" nails. (Not easy to find with the 34 degree and 15 gauge) Most are 16 guage nails with a straight nail. Got it on closeout at Home Depot and I own a Handyman business and use it everyday also has a car charger and the gas last quite a while. Great product !

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Justin Don't install quarter round without it!
My wife and I rented this finish nailer from our Home Depot so we could install quarter round over our new Pergo floor. All I can say is wow! This is nailer is easy to use and extremely powerful, and it significantly shortened the amount of time we spent on our project. Both my wife and I found the nailer easy to hold and manipulate, despite its slightly intimidating size. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone installing molding. The only downside is that it would have been nice to have a safety briefing from the tool rental folks before they sent us on our way. I found out after the fact that the nailer ignites flammable gas to drive the nail, and that it exhausts carbon monoxide and produces sparks, so be careful and use the proper safety gear.
