Hand driving takes a lot longer than using this gun! I was very impressed the first few times I used it. Shortly after the warranty was up, the trigger assemply quit working. I contacted Paslode via email. They responded asking who the sales rep was and how long it sat between jobs. I reply right away aanswering the questions and no response. I asked them to stand behind there product and help me out. No help from them! If a gun is this expensive, they should last longer than 4 jobs.
