What type of used nail gun do I need?
Used nail guns are available in both coil and strip configurations.
Coil- Style used nail guns use long, flexible strings of nails joined with wires. The nails are stored in a coil in a round magazine. Coil-style reconditioned nail guns hold more nails, so there isn’t a need to reload as often. These reconditioned nail guns can accommodate many spaces that strip-style models can’t.
Stripe-style used nail guns use nails arranged on a long, slender strip or stick that slides into an oblong magazine. The nails are held together with strips of paper, plastic or wire. Stripe-style reconditioned nail guns have better balance with a better distribution of the weight.
Used nail guns are also available with different power sources.
Pneumatic Nail Guns – These reconditioned nail guns use air from a compressor. The compressor and air hose limit the mobility of the reconditioned nail guns. These reconditioned nail guns can be powerful and capable of handling heavy-duty tasks when mobility won’t be an issue.
Cordless, Battery-Powered Nail Gun– These reconditioned nail guns offer more mobility and have a quick start-up time. Battery powered reconditioned nail guns don’t have as much power.
Cordless Fuel-Driven Nail Guns– These reconditioned nail guns or used nail guns use combustion to drive nails. This type of nail gun has great mobility since there are no cords or hoses. These reconditioned nail guns or used nail guns are powerful enough for heavy-duty jobs and are capable of driving large fasteners into hard materials.
