I recently installed header beams and the areas between 2 hangers was really tight to put nails in with a hammer. I used this palm nailer and I was able to get the hangers installed to the LVL beams and I beams. Awesome. 5 star tool.

Overall I am happy with this nailer. I am driving 3 inch nails without any problem.
Sometimes the head goes inside the sleeve and sometimes the head doesn't fit into it.
Starting the nail in the correct alignment is the most difficult, especially when toe nailing.

A very handy addition to my collection of nailers
Nail guns are great but when you get into a tight spot you can't beat one of these palm nailers. This porter cable palm nailer is very well made and should last for a very long time. You won't be disappointed with this product.

We purchased this since it is compact. It does a decent job of nailing in tight areas. The plunger does occasionally like to jam but becomes easily unstuck.

BLOWS AIR OUT THE BACK. WONT DRIVE IN NAILS.
It worked great a few times. Used it to drive nails in where swinging a hammer wasnt an option. After a few uses maybe 100 nails I drove a nail in and all of a sudden air is blasting out the back and won't stop. Completely disabled.

lasted just long enough I can't return it
Ut worked great for the few projects I had going on. About 5 months after purchase it started what so many other reviews have also said." Air blowby from exhaust" it won't drive a nail. Extra tool oil helped for a little while but now its just a paper weight.
