Comments about 18-Gauge 2 in. Brad Nailer Kit:

I purchased the Makita AF505 as a direct replacement for my old Makita AF503 that just plain wore out after several years of use in the trade. Given the performance of my old Makita, there was no hesitation replacing it with Makita's newer version, the AF505. The tool still offers ease of use and quick change-over from one brad size to another; 5/8" up to 2". I really like the new quick release cam-lock that enables you to quickly and easily clear jammed nails, minimizing downtime. What I didn't like is the cost-cutting that went into the redesign of the magazine. Time will tell, but I have the sense the tool may not last as long as my old tool. My biggest gripe is the 1/4" ports on the side of the magazine, through which you are suppose to keep an eye on you nail supply…if you hold the tool a certain way so you can see into the ports. The old tool provided a wide window that allowed you to keep an eye on nails remaining while using the tool. And the old tool would sense when you ran out of nails and stop firing. The Makita AF505 will keep firing even when there are no nails to fire. That means if you are concentrating on your work and not babysitting the tool, you might fire the tool four or five times before you realize it is not firing any brads, just denting your wood. The tool works as advertised…just not as good as the tool it replaced.

    Warranty Information

    Makita Standard Warranty

    The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

    If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

    This Warranty does not apply where:
    • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
    • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
    • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
    • Alterations have been made to the tool
    In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
