Hi guys, fist time posting for me so hope you can help.
I'm about to undertake quite a unique fencing job. In essence it's 143 freestanding pens, made from 20mm tannalised timber, 3 layers nailed together with vertical members and horizontal rails. I'm working away from mains power so no compressor. I'm looking for a gas or battery nail gun capable of firing 35mm ring nails.
I use an 18g brad nailer in my other work but I want to get something a bit more hardcore for this.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Anthony Brown

I bought the DeWalt framing nailer about two years ago. I've installed about 500m of fencing and only one jam so far. I used champion nails too which some say are crap but I haven't had any bother with them.

The first model got a lot of bad press but I've never had any bother with my new improved one.

It's maybe worth mentioning - the shortest 1st fix hails you can purchase are 50mm. There are guns around which fire shorter thick nails, but you'll probably need to look at something like a collated roofing nailer (Passlode) or a PPN (positive placement nailer - these fire twist nails ONLY) such as the DSW DCN594 to get 35mm nails

Taking on what J&K says, if you can use 50 mm nails, then I'll mention the Hitachi NG90. I've not long had mine, but it seems perfect for my needs, and is way cheaper than the paslode or dewalt versions. I assume there is a reason for this (longevity I guess) but I'm never going to be firing 1000 nails a day 5 days a week..
