Hitachi Power Tools recently added its first a 3 ½-inch Palm Nailer (model NH90AB) to its extensive Pro Preferred Pneumatic Nailer lineup. This Palm Nailer is designed specifically for driving bulk nails in confined spaces where a nailer might not fit, and there is no room to swing a hammer. It accepts commonly used bulk nails up to 3 1/2 inches long, ranging from .113 inch to .162 inch in diameter. The magnetic nose secures a fastener in place so that the user can easily, safely and accurately guide the nail tip into a material or various types of prepunched metal connectors. The nailer’s performance is only enhanced by its maneuverability. This tool is lightweight at just 1.3 pounds for minimum fatigue during extended use or overhead applications. The 360-degree swivel 1/4-inch industrial fitting allows the air hose to hang at any angle instead of straight out to easily fit into awkward angles. An over-molded, nonslip rubber grip adds comfort, absorbs vibration and helps maintain superior control during use. The front exhaust conveniently directs air away from the user.
