I have up to now been using a Pasload Ist Fix nail gun. But it was due for replacement.
I checked out the reviews on the Hitachi that highly rated it. It was much cheaper and better quality. as far as using it, its amazing equally if not better than the Pasload, Well done Hitachi and well done Powertool World for there prompt assistance and expertise.
Posted - 14 October 2015
Great service - arrived as promised early the next day. Not used it mush yet but early indications are that it is as good as if not better than the orange ones. First impression is that the battery fitment is far more positive which is a problem I've had before.

Bought this for a fencing job. Made the job so much easier and saved a lot of time. Friend has the makita equivalent and he has not noticed any difference between the two. Would recommend going for the firmahold nails and gas as cheaper than paslode and Hitachi.
Posted - 4 October 2015
Very please with this product, works well, good value for money.
Posted - 7 September 2015
Excellent product,much better than makita which I've used up to now, price was so cheap compared to other guns and powertool world beat my own supplier by £70,at only £268inc,unbelievable
Posted - 13 August 2015
Good product despatched and delivered on time
Posted - 16 July 2015
Been using paslodes for years until recently borrowed this hitachi model from a friend. Had to buy one for myself. Every bit as good, feels really solid and we'll built, and is easy to use. Used it 5 days straight now in awkward tight areas and it's proved to be a great bit of kit although it maybe slightly heavier than I'm used to. Next day delivery and price were amazing. Will definitely be using power tool world again.
Posted - 10 July 2015
Nice bit of kit and quick delivery

Great tool so far does everything expected
Posted - 1 June 2015
Recently purchased both nail gun and pin gun both have been a pleasure to use and I would definitely recommend them to other tradesmen like myself. Powertool World have the best prices and service , so I will be using again
Posted - 26 May 2015
Great service and great prices from powertool world.
Very happy with my new nail guns, every bit as good as the orange ones (if not better)
Posted - 11 May 2015
Great service from start to finish. Gun is great value for the money and performing well
Posted - 6 May 2015
I have waited a long time for a job to come along to justify buying one of these boys. Saved me not only time but wear and tear on my poor elbow. I rattled off ten metres of closeboard fencing in no time. A bit complicated to troubleshoot as the instructions are not too clear but when it goes it goes!
Posted - 4 May 2015
Very light gun, easy to handle for long periods, matches the paslode on work and beats it on price
Posted - 23 April 2015
Great Gun, well worth the money, I've had Paslodes before this and bought this due to taking a chance, and I feel it was correct now after about 2000 nails. Only gripe is the hook can move when on your belt which is more annoying than anything, its still secure. The paslode is not twice the gun as the price suggests.
Posted - 22 April 2015
Just put up 20m of fencing . A joy to use,fast and efficient.Charge lasted well. I had to get the nails from elsewhere,Firmahold brand. Did the job,though I notice the gun stops firing when down to the last 9 nails in the strip. Overall,well worth the coin.
Posted - 21 April 2015
Bought this to do some fencing and put up some log stores. Was a bit apprehensive as it is my first Hitachi power tool but needn't have worried. Quality is superb at an unbelievable price from PTW. Well done Hitachi! Will certainly consider manufacturer and use supplier again.
Posted - 14 April 2015
I'm a builder who's had a paslode gun before and had nothing but problems with it. I was abit wary about this gun reason being for it being so cheap but needed one for a job. Have to say its been superb had 5000 nails through it in 2 weeks and never missed a beat never use paslode again. Service was great to next day delivery was spot on
Posted - 11 April 2015
Needed to build a round pen for horses: 36 x 8ft 10 inch posts with three rails 6ft long. Do the maths! Thats a lot of hammering. Bought this as to rent a DeWalt or a Paslode seemed expensive. The Hitachi was and is amazing. Did the job without fail. For the money it will cover its cost in 5 weekends of work. One downside is the instructions. Had to work it out by trial and error. Also Ni-Cad batteries instead of Li-ion so shorter life. But overall very impressed. Would def recommend.
Posted - 11 April 2015
Bought one of these after hiring paslode,i found it lighter,easier to hold especialy when nailing above your head,and you can stand it up without it fall over and found it overal better than the paslode,i used 3 boxes of 100mm nails on site and had only 2 jams which were easily resolved,and this was due to me getting carried away and going to quick.definately recommend this 1st fix nailer,well done hitachi
Posted - 7 April 2015
I bought this as it will not be subject to heavy site use; occasional DIY and house renovation onlyso a Paslode is hard to justify. Excellent tool so far, having framed a couple of stud walls and some flooring so far it would appear the equal of more expensive nailers available.
Posted - 24 March 2015
I bought this to replace a Bostich air nailer which had given me trouble free service for 16 years. I have now owned it for about 2 weeks and I like it very much, love the flexibility of not having to drag an air hose around. It certainly seems to have a lot of power and drives in the 75 mm nails with no problems (I have not tried 90 mm nails) . As others have mentioned the battery is hard to get out but will probably loosen in time and also it often fires 2nails at once when it goes from one nail magazine to the next. But overall I am very happy with my purchase and hope it gives similar service as the Bostich.
Posted - 19 March 2015
Why buy a paslode? Half the price it's a no brainer.....
Posted - 11 March 2015
Very pleased with the nail gun so far, but only had it for a week so time will tell. Battery is very difficult to remove
Posted - 4 March 2015
Excellent for the money, have used for a week now and put over 10,000 nails through it with no problems.
Better than Paslode as far as I'm concerned, I've owned 6 Paslode over the past few years, never again.
A couple of small gripes, the battery... Unbelievably hard to get out, hopefully this will get better.
The hook is quite loose and the gun swings about when it's hooked to your belt, would be a lot better if it was a kind of notched ratchetr system.
Other than those two gripes the gun is brilliant and would definitely but another.
Powertool world were a joy to shop from.
Posted - 27 February 2015
excellent service and a great gun well worth the money
Posted - 3 February 2015
First class Shopping experience with POWERTOOL world from start to finish.

excellent tool,if you need a nailer,buy this one,such good value and service from power tool world
Posted - 16 January 2015
Great bit of kit
Really well built and easy to use
Posted - 8 December 2014
My first framing nail gun, does the job! Took a while to adjust nails from being overdriven as delivered. Batteries are very stiff to get out on mine, sometimes completely stuck, hopefully will loosen over time.
Posted - 14 November 2014
In fact i like it better.Well built tool but still light and easy to load and use, and not the ridiculous price that Paslodes sell for. Delivery was next day and the nails and fuelcells from Powertool world are half the price of screwfix. Get one, you won't regret it.

Our second hitatchi after years of paslodes. Works just as well but for almost half price it's a no brainer!
Plus the the batteries don't fall out and the charger is more robust
Posted - 4 November 2014
Top nail gun for the money, had Paslode gun before, it's as good if not better because it's lighter.
Posted - 23 October 2014
Having used Paslode & Makita Guns previously this gun is almost identical, Slightly lighter in weight but performs as well, only issue I have had is if I use the gun and then stop for more than 20 minutes I need to remove the battery and put it back in before the gun will fire, not a big deal, For the money It's a great buy
Posted - 7 October 2014
Very pleased with the nail gun and the price, delivery was quick, thanks
Posted - 16 September 2014
This will be my second Hitachi, first one lasted 6 years. Very good machine for the money.

Posted - 27 June 2014
As one would expect from Hitachi - nice tool & very sensibly priced.
Posted - 23 March 2014
This was a replacement as original one was stolen from a job, just as good as the paslode in my opinion and alot less money

Been using this on site for as few days building Stud walls, excellent, Have been using an air nailer prior to this, and this is so much better, at £260 ish quid it's a bargain.
Posted - 2 February 2014
Better and cheaper than the paslode
Posted - 30 January 2014
Realy good up there with the best
Posted - 23 December 2013
I'm not a tradesman, so when it comes to buying tools, I agonise over wether I really need them or not.
I bought this back in 2011 when I was building my own workshop and now I can't believe how I thought I would nailed everything by hand especially as I was working alone.
Made what could have been an extremely labour intensive job, very enjoyable.
I have never used a Paslode, but from my research at the time, this nail gun is very very similar and at a petter price. also the size of the nails and gas canisters are standard, so what fits for Paslode also works for Hitachi.
It is very loud and I would wear ear defenders when using this nail gun. as other reviewers have said, the barrel does get hot if you are constantly nailing in quick succession, so don't touch!
Great gun at a great price
Posted - 12 December 2013
Nice powerful tool, seems to be as good as Paslode. You have to use Hitachi nozzles on the power pack though. Best price I could find was Powertool World.
Posted - 11 October 2013
fantastic piece of kit, using it alongside the paslode and it outperforms it.
Posted - 9 October 2013
This product I purchased several weeks ago and have used it constantly top quality piece of kit for a great price.The delivery time was great will certainly buy from here again
Posted - 19 September 2013
Super value, in comparison to other brands, And better. Great service from Powertool World. Ordered one lunch time, arrived next morning before 10am, brilliant.
Posted - 14 September 2013
Great nailer for a very low price,a pleasure to use
Posted - 10 August 2013
Of course the real question here is paslode v's hitachi, but how can you compare something almost half the price? Well, like this:
(I've owned the Hitachi for just over a week, so this is enitial thoughts but im a joiner by trade and its taken some hammer) I still own a paslode 1st fix and it still works well after a good 5yrs but i encoutered a few errors. Battery dropping out of gun through cracking batteries and many firing problems sorted by servicing myself. The pasolde is good but expensive.
So far the Hitachi has been nothing short of spectacular. Same duration of warranty as paslode, same sort of weight and balance. The Hitachi in my opinion is every bit as good as the paslode only with a great saving. You can almost buy an Hitachi first and second fix gun for the price of the paslode first fix. I've read about faults with the hitachi batteries, well a stiffness on releasing them, i havent encountered that problem. Another plus is the Hitachi battery stops operating when not used for a while, saving power for when you need it.
I will be looking forward to seeing how the gun operates in a few years time but im sure with TLC it will be fine. Buy this nail gun. Bargain!!
Posted - 10 August 2013
amazing price. best value nailer on the internet. i am doing a loft conversion and it is made easier with this gun.
Posted - 31 July 2013
Bought this gun after owning many Paslodes and constantly having them repaired. this also went wrong after 8 months but the service i received from this firm was second to none, nice to know that customer satifaction is still alive and kicking. Great gun works smooth and no trouble loading or delivering the nails. 1st class item and service.
Posted - 16 July 2013
So far brilliant and excellent service! Best price I could find to😄
Posted - 1 July 2013
Bought this nail gun to work on my self build, it is a very good and reliable tool, don't know how I managed without it before.
Posted - 21 May 2013
An excellent bit of kit for the money.
Both supplier and nailer deserve 5 stars
Posted - 10 April 2013
Super value, in comparison to other brands. Great service from Powertool World. Ordered one lunch time, arrived next morning, brilliant.
Posted - 28 March 2013
Great bit of kit, as good as Paslode. As usual good service, advice and quick delivery from Powertool World.
Posted - 12 March 2013
Nail gun has been a god send and the service second to none. Definitely be returning my custom here :)
Posted - 11 December 2012
service great/cheapest on web/this is my second hitachi firstfix nailer ,great nailer /as good as any other nailer on the markit at 180quid cheaper u can't go wrong.downside as winter is here ,cold weatherdoes effect proformance ,but that goes for any gas nailer.tip is to keep gas out of the cold before u start work .this helps.regards hammyboy
Posted - 28 November 2012
very pleased with nail gun, as good as a paslode, and half the price.
Posted - 21 November 2012
A very good tool that does the same job as a paslode but for less money
Posted - 9 September 2012
This really is a quality bit of kit for the money, can't find any differences in performance when comparing it against Paslode im350 apart from the huge price difference!! more than happy with it and the service and communication from Powertool World is the best ive encountered.
Posted - 6 September 2012
Early days but so far a first class gun and a first class service from powertoolworld. I ordered it one day, received a text and email the next day telling me i would receive it the following day. Early that next morning i then received a message telling me the precise time i would receive it and name of the delivery company and even the drivers name! Amazing and a refreshing change.
Posted - 5 September 2012
great tool at least as good as the paslode
Posted - 4 September 2012
Having been using the nail gun for the last few days it's as good if not better than the paslode gun. I would highly recommend anyone buy one of these over a paslode and they're half the price. Power tool world have been excellent. I ordered on a Sunday and it turned up on a Tuesday. I've been kept informed of what's happening the whole way through the process. A very good company and will be using for all my future purchases.
Posted - 31 August 2012
Still not as good as Paslode but an improvement on the previous model and excellent value for money.
Posted - 25 August 2012
Many thanks for a first class service and delivery. The NR90GC2 nailer works very well and is on par with the paslode I use, but your price has been a bonus, again many thanks
Posted - 22 August 2012
quality product at a good price delivered fast
Posted - 22 August 2012
So far no jams, fails or surprises. Unlike my previous im350.......
Posted - 21 August 2012
I have had a number of Paslode guns, needing a new gun i was unwilling to pay £500+ so decided to try a Hitachi at half the price. It works fine, very pleased with it & will probably buy another. service from Powertoolworld was superb!!
Posted - 15 August 2012
Early days and little use as yet. but all is well and good, great price compared to other brands
Posted - 17 July 2012
Had considered buying Paslode nailer, but because i do have the use for one on a regular basis, decided the money was an issue. Bought the Hitachi, no regrets, seems to be a quality product the odd two nails being fired at once, but i suspect they will all do this on occasions.
Bought a couple of items now from Powertool World, always a first class service and quick delivery.
Posted - 12 July 2012
Very pleased with this equipment. Every bit as good as Paslode but at a fraction of the price. Superb service from Powertool World.
Posted - 2 July 2012
Great tool and great service, thanks
Posted - 8 June 2012
this is tip top. Easy to use and easy to set up.

Having used other machines over the years,this is a fantastic bit of kit and better value for your money.

Excellent service from shop. Gun better & lighter than Paslode. Good cheap price & very fast delivery with a time slot. Many thanks & will be buying again.
Posted - 19 May 2012
I have a large garden and use timber extensively for a variety of projects. Saw the carpenters using these sorts of thing when they built us a log cabin and realised how they would speed up a job. For the first time last weekend managed a large job in 1 day, much to the praise of "she who must be obeyed". The only irritation for me was the machine going to sleep if it was not used repeatedly. This may be me or a reflection of the job I was doing. The feature is very necessaryto preserve battery life as the manual makes clear. Looking forward to the next shed and decking I have to do. Price was excellent, the delivery very efficient. Am happy to recommend this supplier to others and would purchase for here again.
Posted - 8 May 2012
Great nail gun. Have used with different nail brands inc Paslode. Just as good as my mate's paslode - he wishes he'd bought this now!

it also has a great price.
Posted - 28 February 2012
fast delivery, great service, cheapest online shop, thank you, very much
Posted - 16 February 2012
I bought this to use as a second nailgun to accompany my paslode im 350. Since recieving it 2 weeks ago i havent put it down!! I have put 3 boxes of nails through it, 63mm and 90mm with no problems. Its been -6 deg on my site over the last fortnight and the gun has performed faultlessly.
The staff at powertool world were polite and very helpful, the tool arrived within 2 days. And last but not least it was the cheapest price for the tool on the web (UK). Thanks guys will be using powertool world again.
Posted - 2 January 2012
I received the Nailer very quickly and Powertool World kept me updated constantly as to when it was going to arrive. The Nailer works very well and I am very happy with the purchase
Posted - 9 December 2011
No complaints - does exactly whats intended - glad I purchased this as a part from air operated.
Posted - 11 November 2011
I have to say the nailer overall is very impressive, especially given the cost of new paslode. I decided not to go paslode IM350+ on reading reviews for this. couple of things would improve it inc. easy screw adjust without using allen key, battery is a bit sticky in its housing. Powertool world provided a great fast service
Posted - 8 November 2011
Have had this nailer for the past couple of months and for the price it has really impressed me.
The only sticking points, and they're only very small issues really are that a) the top of the nailer is quite rounded - I used to be able to rest my paslode on the floor without it tipping up, this nailer has to really be laid down if not in your hand or hung on your belt b) the battery can stick a little when you want to remove it from the gun (never too much to actually remove it though) and c) the depth variance requires an alan key to change (provided with the gun) and ideally I'd like to see a quick release/tighten to vary it.
Overall really good though, great battery and gas life.
Posted - 26 October 2011
Very impressed not only with the product but the service and delivery speed is superb..well done
Posted - 6 October 2011
Great nail gun, no need to even look at the paslode, I'm a self employed carpenter and this is more than good enough!
Posted - 15 September 2011
superb product, its not my day job so couldn't justify the price of a paslode. I can't think how it could be better than this anyway.
Posted - 14 September 2011
Great value, performs perfectly. REALLY impressed!
Arrived almost immediately after ordering and carriers actually advised 1 hour timeslot for their delivery. All in all everything about the purchase was top notch, tool, supplier, carrier !!
Posted - 14 September 2011
I ordered this gun as I was getting bored with paying Hire charges for a Paslode. The Hitachi is lighter and better balanced, very pleasant to use and cheaper to boot!
Value and service from Powertool world first class and highly recomended, thanks guy's.

Best gun ever used
Posted - 9 June 2011
so pleased i ignored my first choice of nailer ( paslode ) , this is just as good and lot cheaper, i'm delighted, as for powertools, first class service and product arrived well packaged.
Posted - 1 June 2011
Not the fist time I have bought something from these guys, and as before - fast service, well packaged, and a brilliant product. Very pleased.
Posted - 11 May 2011
What a great bit of kit, i have used it to line my loft and build my shed. what a time saver,cannot believe how easy 90mm nails go in. the cost saving compared to the paslode IM350 is £150 1 cannot see what the paslode has that this cannot match. Great SERVICE
Posted - 26 April 2011
Seems a great product. It was delivered fast and well packaged. Really Happy
Posted - 17 April 2011
This item is great, second time I used one (first being Paslode) and can't fault it. It save loads of time Buy one!!!
