1. Metabo HPT Roofing Nailer, Pneumatic, Coil Roofing Nails from 7/8-Inch up to 1-3/4-Inch, 16 Degree Magazine, (NV45AB2)

Htaching Power Tools is now Metabo HPT. The same quality that Htiachi has built over the yeas is now under the new brand fo Metabo HPT. This nail gun has so many built in extras that may seem simple but come so handy. The rubber padding on this model keep it from sliding off of the roof and falling. With other nail guns that would slide off the roof you’d either need to climb down the ladder to pick it up or go to the store to buy a new one if it broke. If you’re looking for comfort you’ll appreciate the long lasting rubber grip. This nail gun also utilizes a pneumatic power feed which allow it keep working from job to job in some of the most difficult conditions. The side loading magazine is really convenient when working on a big job. 

Was leery at first, I didnt know Hitachi was no longer Hitachi.. so far it’s been every bit as good as the original. So 2 thumbs up
