20 Oct A New and Improved Siding Nailer
Based La Mirada, California, toolmaker Makita U.S.A., Inc. has released a new 2‑1/2″ siding coil nailer (item AN613). It drives 15-degree wire and plastic collated nails and is an upgrade on the popular AN611 model because of its new features and improvements. There’s an improved ergonomic design and the gun weighs only 5.1 lbs. for reduced operator fatigue. A built-in air duster provides convenient air flow to clear work materials and tools. The trigger and head mechanism are designed to reduce air leak and recoil and the multi-directional exhaust port now rotates 360-degrees to redirect the exhaust air. Other new features include a tool-less depth adjustment control that is engineered for more precise flush and countersink nailing, and a reversible belt hook. A two-mode selection switch offers both single sequential actuation and contact actuation mode. Makita’s purpose-built motor drives a range of 1-1/2″ to 2-1/2″ nails into fiber cement siding and wood. The clear loading canister with nail size adjustment allows the user to quickly view when it’s time to reload nails, and then easily do so.
