This Bostitch BTFP3KIT comes with a brad- and straight-finish nailer, a crown stapler, and a compressor, making it suitable for a wide variety of applications. The price is actually quite low when you consider the cost of each item individually.
Ryobi P320 Airstrike
The Ryobi P320 Airstrike is capable of delivering up to 700 brads per charge, allowing you to work for an extended period of time before needing to swap out batteries. It is equipped with dual-LED lamps to keep your area illuminated, as well.
The battery-powered, 20-volt Porter-Cable PCC790LA delivers a respectable run-time and eliminates the need for an air compressor, saving you a little bit of cash and cutting down on the gear you have to lug around from place to place.
Freeman P4FRFNCB Combo Kit
The Freeman P4FRFNCB Combo Kit is designed for heavy-duty, professional applications. Each tool in this four-piece selection has an anodized aluminum cylinder for durability — meaning less damage each time the piston fires, thereby improving its lifespan.
The NuMax SFR2190 is ergonomically designed for operator comfort, and comes with interchangeable triggers and a hardened driver blade made from high quality steel. The detailed instruction manual makes it ideal for inexperienced carpenters.
The Metabo NT50AE2 provides professional-quality delivery of brad nails, so it’s a smart choice for light trim, cabinet assembly, and baseboards. It comes with a handy carrying case to make it easy to transport it to and from various job sites.
The DeWalt DWFP12231 is equipped with a maintenance-free motor and an easy jam release feature, and has the ability to drive in brads of up to two inches in length. It includes an optional non-marring tip for work on surfaces that will remain visible.
If you need something gentler than a framer but with more holding power than a brad, consider the Makita XNB02Z . The motor generates plenty of driving force and the anti-dry-fire mechanism prevents unnecessary holes in your moldings.
You don’t need to let the weather stop you from getting your work done if you have the cordless Paslode 905600 . It’s capable of functioning in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit and drives up to 9,000 nails per charge.
The DeWalt DWF83PT uses paper collated nails that jam less frequently than plastic strips and won’t break apart if you drop them. It also has a recoil dampening system in the engine housing that makes this model surprisingly easy to use considering its size.
