Hitachi Pneumatic Flooring Nailers:

The NT50AF 2in. T & L Flooring Nailer accepts both T & L shaped 16-Gauge cleats (nails) from 1-3/16in. up to 2in. in length for installing 1/2in. or 3/4in. domestic solid wood flooring. The NT50AF features a “Preferred Seating System,” which guarantees accurate placement of each cleat at the proper angle and depth to produce straight boards and secure tongue and groove flooring. Additionally, the pneumatic flooring nailer is oil lubricated allowing for simple maintenance. The tool’s housing is constructed from high strength aluminum for a lightweight (only 9 lbs), yet durable tool designed to endure continuous use. An integrated safety feature prevents accidental driving, which protects the user as well as the piece of wood flooring. The high capacity magazine holds up to 150 cleats, reducing downtime by requiring fewer reloads. This NT50AF flooring nailer comes with non-marring accessory shoe pads (1/2in. & 3/4in.) to prevent damage to the floor and to fit a variety of flooring widths. It also comes with a non-marring hammer, safety glasses, a wrench set and carrying case for easy transport and storage. Additional accessories are sold separately for this nailer including a wide profile flooring shoe (#330389) for 9/16in. – 3/4in. pre-finished wood flooring and imported/bamboo flooring, and a nail set for T and L cleats (#330328).
