Quite happy w/ this finish nailer
-Like the wide range of nail-lengths it handles.
-Perfect alternative when staples leave too large a surface hole.
-male hose connector doesn't seem to be standard/universal--- doesn't work on hoses we didn't get from porter-cable.
-tough to UN-load for changing nail sizes.

Simply outstanding
After having surgery for a broken wrist my Dr. recommended this to me if I wanted to continue to "nail" projects. I can't believe I went this long without knowing about or owning one.

Haven't had a chance to use it too much yet. I hooked it up and shot some 2" nails to test it out and they went into a 4x4 with no problem. No air leakage. Looks like a good deal for about $50 less than new.

Another great Porter-Cable tool from CPO
This product has replaced an older and tired Porter-Cable nailer. These are dependable tools that are ready for the task when you are. CPO does a fine job on the refurbishment. This is not the first tool that we have purchased from them. Everyone has been good as new.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, oil is needed to lubricate the nailer.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
