Hitachi's Three New Gas Finish Nailers for Hassle-Free Finishing


NORCROSS, GA - Hitachi Power Tools introduces three new gas finish nailers to the market. A combination of lithium ion battery technolongy and a gas fuel cell offers the convenience of a cordless tool with the power of a pneumatic Lightweight and loaded with features for performance, user comfort, and safety, these nailers are ideal for a variety of installation applications with freedom from the restrictions of an awkward air hose and a cumbersome compressor. The NT65GS gas finish nailer applies 16-gauge fasteners from a straight magazine. The angled 15-gauge gas finish nailer, NT65GA, and angled 16-gauge gas finish nailer, the NT65GB, allow for easy maneuverability in tight corners and spaces.

Time is money and gas nailers save both! Without bulky pneumatic attachments, the user can easily move around the jobsite, saving time in the set-up, during use, and in cleanup after the job has been completed. These gas nailers from Hitachi hold fasteners up to 2-½" in length and each have a capacity of 100 nails. Doubleactioned nail feed and a reciprocating piston system drive an intermittent cycle rate of two nails per second and a 1,000 nail per hour continuous rate to rapidly compete tasks.

Dry fire lockout prevents blank activation when the nail count comes to an end. This valuable feature serves to alert the user to replace nails, prolong tool life with fewer empty drives, and minimize possible damage to a work piece. A detachable, no-mar nose cap also protects delicate work surfaces and costly materials from indentations or scratches. The cap can be conveniently snapped onto the body of the tool for easily accessible storage.

Compact and lightweight for optimal balance, maneuverability, and minimal user fatigue, these nailers are ideal for overhead and extended-use applications. A soft elastomer handle provides a comfortable hold and ensures a secure grip. The variableposition belt hook can be installed on either side of the nailer for right or left-handed users. A quick-clear nose with tool-less jam release allows simple nail extraction in the event of a jam during use. With the tool-less depth of drive dial, the user can achieve flush fastening into various materials with every fastener for a professional finish.

Hitachi's 0.6-oz finish nailer fuel rods have a long life of 1,200 shots each. When a cell is spent, the nailer can instantly be reloaded by inserting a new top-loading fuel rod without waiting on a compressor to complete a cycle! When one of the 3.6V lithium ion batteries runs low, an indicator light alerts the user of the battery status to prevent unexpected downtime. In only an hour, a battery can fully charge using the AC/DC charger. Adaptors make charging possible in a standard wall outlet or in an automobile on the way to a job.

These gas finish nailers provide unobstructed mobility on a jobsite and are ideal for installing molding, door jambs, baseboards, window casings, chair rail, and cabinetry and for other fine finish applications. Hitachi's NT65GS, NT65GA, and NT65GB come with two 3.6V Lithium Ion batteries, an AC/DC charger with automotive adaptor, carrying case, safety glasses, no-mar tip and hex bar wrenches. Fuel rods (728981) are sold separately.
