I think you'll have to look at your specs on your nail guns and see what the demand is . Whether measured in cfpm or psi, your compressor will tell you the max output of each of those. Then you divide the maximum sustained output of the compressor,, lets say it is 60 psi. Let's say the guns require 10 psi, 60 divided by 10 is 6 = 6 nail guns. This is completely hypothetical as I have no idea what your nail guns require, only you know what kind of guns you have.If you need to run more guns than the compressor can push air for, you'll have to invest in another compressor, maybe even one larger to handle the guns running wide open consistent nailing. Nothing a drywaller hates more is than for all the cursed clip nails not being drove in all the way, lol, and that's what will happen with insufficient air supply.

Nail gun problem

This is a bottom fire tool. (NV83A2) You need to hold the trigger down and then as you place the nailer to the wood the safety will depress and it will fire once. This is usually done in one, swift action. If you do this in the opposite way by placing the tool to the wood and then pulling the trigger they often will double fire.

The nailer piston on my hitachi roof gun stays out and will only fire 1 out of 15 times. i've tried oiling it, and hear no gasket leaks. what could it be ? dan.......

There are o-rings in the gun that route air around the cylinder to push the driver back up. One or more of these o-rings are worn or broken. You can get it fixed at a service center or you can go to sites like www.ereplacementparts.com to find a breakdown of your gun and order the parts. Unfortunately Hitachi doesn't make all in one repair kits and if you replace one, replace all of the o-rings.

Air leaking aroung the trigger assembly from my Hitachi NR83A

if you took the trigger apart the part that you unscrew has a nylon ball and a black rubber ring you should check them and make sure that you didn't loose them when you took it apart,if they are there, then you need to service the gun, and after you clean all the moving part and you put it back together, it may still leak from the top,Take a rubber hammer and give it a good hit,now not to hard, and it should seal

I know of only one company that has a complete kit but they are located in the Cincinnati, OH area. They would need to know if this is a coil nailer/roofing nailer and some other info but these kits unless you can find an air tool repair center in your area are complete, I have used them for 6 years and they should take care of your problem. Their site if you want to view it is Nailgundepot.com and they have another link. Let me know if you need more assistance. The kit lists for around 12.00

Do I need to oil this gun during use? I have many other guns that require oiling and have a stamp on the gun that says do, tho I do have another senco trim gun that I know is oilless. Do I need to oil the...

yes, squirt oil in the tool 2 times daily depending on use. do not oil the nails/pawl area, it only collects dirt. About 6 drops in the air fitting should be fine.

Can i use any brand coil nailes in my nv 45ab2 coil nailer

Yes. Roofing nailers all use about the same size and spacing on coil nails. You will find that Harbor Freight is about 1/2 the price of Home Depot or Lowes for those nails.

My brand new hitachi NV45AB2 roofing nailer leaks air through the trigger when it is half depressed. I purchased one and returned it only to find the new one I recieved to replace it does the same thing....

Take off the back cover and make sure it's not too dry inside. Spray the inside with some WD40. You can take off the top cover. Pop the piston, cylinder, and head valve out, making sure all the seals and rings are seated correctly.Sounds like the piston is momentarily sticking. Does it shoot at all? Lemme know. Please rate me
