  1. Should have worked, but no.
    I bought this expecting it to work, but was disappointed. The slide would not lock in open position for loading nails, requiring a third hand (which I do not possess) to hold the gun, the slide, and load nails. Of course, I returned it and will not be ordering again, as I would expect that a product sold as refurbished would at least be inspected to find defects and not just shipped out as defective.

  2. Tremendous value, outstanding performance.
    I used the NR90AEPR for the first time the other day, it really packs a wallop! Interestingly, when toe nailing it doesn't sink the nails in far enough even after adjusting the depth and the pressure.

    Really the only criticism I have is that it dry-fires after it runs out of nails. But, for the price and performance, I'll just have to get accustomed to checking the clip more often. The gun is well balanced, light and comfortable to hold for long periods of time.

  7. Super value
    Light but tough. I really like the nosepiece that grips the surface of the wood when toenailing. I used it to build a 26 X 42 shop and never had a bit of trouble. I really like it!

    The trigger on my DeWalt framing nailer has been giving me lots of trouble engaging, so I bought this Hitachi for what it would cost me to 'fix' the DeWalt. Works perfect! Even though it was a grade C, I couldn't tell .

  10. Great nailer.
    After reloading the nailer 3 times it the nail strips started to hang up and not advance to the nailing.I added a few drops of oil to the loader spring and slide mechanism.It has worked flawlessly since I did this.

    Good nailer for the price. This unit is very capable for plastic collated nails. wire collated nails require a more expensive Nail gun. There are nailers that are more durable but cost twice the price and really don't drive the nails better. They will just hold up better if dropped and of course drive wire collated nails.

    I am only giving 3 stars mainly towards Big Sky Tool and not the nail gun. Before buying, I read a several positive reviews on the Grade C nail gun from previous buyers. However, this nail gun was sent to me pretty banged up. LOTS of scratches, Yellow lubricating oil all over it (it didn't even look like it was ever cleaned when repaired) and still had the previous owners initials engraved in it. I honestly don't think I'll ever buy Grade C items from Big Sky Tools again. I contacted them and they said I could return it but, I would have to pay for the return shipping) and there was going to be a hefty restocking fee. I am pretty disappointed. I could have bought this at a yard sale in comparable condition. Again, I am just very disappointed. Not at all the condition I expected. =-(

    I have used various framing nailers for over thirty years. The Hitachi framer has worked well, I borrowed a friends to frame several jobs with before buying this one (to check out the quality and durability) and had no real issues with it. Bought this one to speed up things, and now if my buddy wants his back I can continue on with no problem.

    The nailer worked perfectly for my needs and the price was not to beat. Note that that there is a big difference in appearance between a grade A reconditioned tool (which looks like new) and a grade C (which looks clearly used). As long as you are ok with that, you get the best bargain possible.

    hard to rate the gun jammed on first squeeze of the trigger, two nails still jammed in head of unit. on the other parts of the gun i had to physically hold the nails forward the spring was absolutely worn out. i ordered the hitachi made in japan they sent me one made in taiwan. i tossed it in the corner pulled my hammer back out. great prices , worn out equipment spend the extra buy new.

    This nailer completes my set of Hitachi air guns. I purchased a compressor, brad and finish nailer from Big Sky and these tools all looked great and perform awesome. It has been a true pleasure dealing with this company. What's not to like about saving on the best air tools money can buy and knowing the product has been thoroughly inspected for quality issues.

    Great nailer - better than my Dewalt (which was prone to jamming when you got to the end of a strip of nails). The "Grade C" I received was in great shape - a few scuffs, but certainly no worse than other "standard" reconditioned tools I've purchased from other companies. No complaints - recommended!

    Had a few sratches and {no carry case, the reason for a 4 rating}. Read the manual and serviced. Heads of ring shank nails would not sit flush until after about 25 nails, after re-adjusting depth, had not had any problems. NOTE to self; do not put your hand on the back of the cylinder head in close quarters unless you like a little pain!.

    The Hitachi NR90AEPR framing nailer proved to be a great tool at a value price. Don't be concerned about the "C" grade designation. I assume it was the engraved initials on the handle that caused the low rating of my nailer. Other than that it appears and operates like new. I've run several thousand nails through my nailer in the first week without a failure. This is a great tool at a fantastic price from a good company that promptly delivered the nailer on time as described.

    Excellent product - minor insignificant exterior blemishes - works like a charm. Best dollar for dollar deal in a nail gun. To top it off there were issues with UPS delivery - the customer service and quick response received was second to none. No issues at all with gun - ran a box of 500 nails through it without a single jam and just a few nails that didn't sink in all the way and I blame it on the compressor.... If you need a quality nail gun and don't want to pay exhorbitant prices this one is it!

    I was hesitant to buy a "Grade C" reconditioned nailer, but couldn't resist the price. Since I have now run a couple of thousand nails through it, I couldn't be more pleased with the decision to go with "C". A couple of years ago I bought a Northern Tool framing nailer for about $100 and ran over 10,000 nails through it while experiencing a misfire about every 20-30 shots and a jam about every 500-700 shots. This Hitachi is flawless by comparison I have had ZERO misfires and ZERO jams so far. The depth adjustment is fantastic and very easy to use. The switch from single shot to bump fire is convienent and easy to use. It is light and easy to handle. I couldn't tell what made this unit a "Grade C" as it looked like new to me. If it had scratches, I didn't see them - but who cares about a few minor scratches if it performs the job of a new unit?? My only "complaint" is that it is a little louder than my old nailer, but that means nothing to me when it performs through thousands of nails without so much as a hiccup. This nailer is well worth the price, especially as a Grade C.
