Price and Main Feature list

  • The pneumatic coil framing nailer has an easily adjustable exhaust for your convenience.
  • The patented push button depth guide is easily adjustable so that you can set the nails to the depth you want quickly and easily without tools.
  • Ultra lightweight magnesium is used to bring the weight down and aggressive wear guards protect the nail gun from any damage from abrasive surfaces.
  • You can load up to 300 nails in the magazine depending on the size of the nail.
  • Because Stanley Bostitch believes in the quality of their tools, they include a seven year limited warranty.

Who is it for?

This Bostitch N89C-1 Coil Framing Nailer is really designed for a professional woodworker who expects to run into a lot of tough jobs. It has a professional price as well as a ton of convenient and easy to use features which are nice but really overkill for home use where it would only get used maybe two or three times a year.

Pros and Cons

One feature that this Bostitch N89C-1 Coil Framing Nailer sports that sets it ahead of many others in its class is that it was built tough enough to withstand the kind of abuse that a professional gives to all his tools. It most certainly isn’t going to break the first time you accidently step on it.

This framing nailer weighs 8.1 pounds, which is excellent for this type of nail gun and will help you use it for even those long jobs. It is about 18 inches long, 16 inches wide, and 6.5 inches tall. The colors are the standard Stanley Bostitch yellow and black.

The benefits of the Bostitch N89C-1 Coil Framing Nailer are that it is really powerful, super lightweight for long use, and every feature is adjustable to meet the needs of a professional woodworker. The downside is that all of this quality and adjustability comes at a price.

Why you should buy it?
