This new Strap-Tite nailer from Hitachi makes metal connecting a breeze. The sleek and small design of the NR65AKS allows the tool to easily fit into the most awkard positions. Positive fastener placement is achieved by the nail tip protruding from the nose. Just place the nail tip into the correct position on the metal connector and fire. This tool weighs only 5.5 lbs. and accepts fasteners from 1-1/2" to 2-1/2" in length and .148 to .162 in shank diameter.
