Wise Buys: Nailer/Compressor Combination Kits
INCLUDES: 2-gallon compressor; 16-gauge 11/4-2-1/2" finish nailer; 18-gauge 5/8-1-1/4" brad nailer; and 1/4"x25' hose.
This small, oil-free compressor nevertheless weighs 31 lbs thanks to a stout tank and motor. It's also louder than I expected at 85 dB. Still, its compact size and easy-to-grab handle makes it easy to lug into the house, basement, or jobsite with no trouble. I could fire only 15 1-1/4" brads or nine 2-1/2" finish nails before the pump kicked on, but it had no trouble keeping up with every job I did. With two quick-connect ports, you could hook up both nailers (with another hose), but the small tank would not support two people steadily using those nailers simultaneously. Both nailers feature easy-to-adjust depth controls and quick, toolless jam clearing.
