Wise Buys: Nailer/Compressor Combination Kits

Makita MAC700K3

Makita MAC700K3

INCLUDES: 2.6-gallon compressor; 18-gauge 5/8-2" brad nailer; 18-gauge 5/8-1-1/2" narrow-crown stapler; and 1/4"x25' hose.

Editor test-drive:
There are enough ear-piercing machines and tools in my shop, so I was thrilled with the smooth, quiet performance of Makita's oil-lubed, hot-dog-style compressor. Thanks to a small muffler, this model topped out at 72 dB, more than three times quieter than the next-best unit in the test. Although it's hefty--a test-high 53 lbs--it's the beefy components that make it so: heavy-gauge steel, copper tubing, and tubular steel handle. Both nailers have effective non-marring rubber noses, but neither will bump-fire in rapid succession. Only the brad nailer has a quick-release for clearing jammed fasteners.
