Therefore, the price difference is

We have tested the different systems for two weeks.

We set up 300 square meters of panel with associated loadings.

This is not a test of the individual product, but of the different systems.

Each of the products you see here are good representatives of each technology.

This is what you should look for:

Nail guns come in many sizes. Think carefully about the need.

Low weight:

On these tools you will find large variations in weight. The heavy variants, though, absorb the recoil better, but can be difficult to handle a whole day.

Adjustment without tools:

To switch between different modes and remove stuck nails must be done without tools.

Right or slanted:

If the gun is made so that the nails are tilted, it is easier to reach when you nail, but it makes the nails become more expensive.

Nail availability:

In particular, on guns where the nails are inclined, check the availability.

Gas-powered nail gun

IMPROVED: These have good capacity and are manageably manageable. Photo: Øivind Lie

GAS AND BATTERY: The gun goes on gas and battery. The gas ignites and pushes the piston with the driver in front, which again shoots the nail as on a standard compressed air gun. Photo: Øivind Lie

LONG AND GREAT: Although this is one of the lighter varieties, it becomes fast heavy and unmanageable. Photo: Øivind Lie

BATTERY REQUIREMENT: When the trigger is pressed, an engine starts when it has risen, then the clutch engages and the shot goes off. Photo: Øivind Lie

EASY EFFECTIVE: It’s light and efficient, but you have to handle compressor and hose. Photo: Øivind Lie

COMPRESSED AIR: These tools use compressed air to enter the nail. The air is produced by a compressor, transported to the gun via a hose where it presses a piston, which again turns the nail. Photo: Øivind Lie

The gun goes on gas and battery. The gas ignites and pushes the piston with the driver in front, which again shoots the nail as on a standard compressed air gun.

– This was something completely different from those we tested a few years ago, is Eriksen’s first comment.

– They are unable to compete with air on weight and efficiency, but are definitely an option when getting nails and moving around a lot. For example, when to mount lists.

Price on nail:

On these guns nails and gas come as a package

38mm (2000 nail + 2 gas) 377 kroner

51mm (2000 nail + 2 gas) 405 kroner

Market price of this gun: 5600 kroner.

Advantages:

You do not need compressor and hose.

Good capacity

Cons:

Animal nail

Rechargeable electric nail gun

Test Product: Senco Cordless Finish 25

This comes in two variants, the nails are straight and oblique. We have tried both.

When the trigger is pressed, an engine starts. When the speed has risen, the clutch engages and the shot goes off.

– This is one of the easiest variants of the electric guns. Nevertheless, it is clearly the heaviest of the three and is quite so dense. This makes it fast becoming unmanageable.

It will be said that Senco comes with a new model, with a new technology that we will test as soon as it becomes available. It will be exciting to see if the new variant addresses the issues we point out here.

Price on nail (correct):

38mm (3000 nails) 87 kroner

50mm (2000 nail) 182 crowns

Market price of this gun: 6138 kroner.

Advantages:

You do not need compressor and hose

Cons:

Small Capacity

Large and relatively heavy

Long-term from extinction to shot in single shot mode

Spray gun operated by compressed air

Test Product: Chop F16 / 63 Dive Gun With An AMP T3 / 210 Light Compressor From ESSVE.

These tools use compressed air to enter the nail. The air is produced by a compressor, transported to the gun via a hose where it presses a piston, which again turns the nail.

Air is superior when your job requires that it is shot efficiently and that you do not require you to move a lot on you. Such as when setting up a panel.

Price on nail (correct):

38mm (3000 nails) 87 kroner

50mm (2000 nail) 182 crowns

Market price of gun, hose and compressor: 6600 kroner.

Advantages:

Low weight, compact

Large Capacity

Cons:

Some handling with compressor and hose.

Here you can check how the different systems work.

Conclusion:

Pneumatic is still the king on the heels of the pros.

The other technologies have developed a lot in recent years, but the compressed air is connected, especially the facilities have become easier and more manageable.

Should you start a large renovation project, consider compressed air.

The downside is compressors and hoses, but if you are mindful of doing it yourself, you can use the compressor for much else too.

Are you going to use the gun more occasionally should you take a look at a gas-powered gun.

If you use it for small projects, it is also easier to defend the higher price of nails. You take it straight off your suitcase and you’re up and running.
