Once again, Hitachi produces a superior product.,
March 6, 2003
Reviewer: Ken Hopf
I was in need of another siding gun, and saw the NV75AG
just hit the market. Being that I own the siding (4 years
use) and framing (8 years use) versions Hitachi makes
(both superior products), when it came time to get a
second nailer for siding the choice was clear. For several
years I have been contempating getting a coil framer. When
sheeting walls on the ground I loose considerable time
reloading with the stick framer. This gun holds over 225
nails in one coil! And should my stick framer blow a top
seal, or sider fail, the NV75AG will allow me to continue.
The gun functions flawlessly, with both the depth
adjustment on the gun and a non maring tip included.
Hitachi includes all allen wrenches and fittings,
something other makers should but don't.
Only complaints, cost and plastic skirting. Cost, well it
takes the place of 2 guns. Skirting, easily removed.
Not as powerful as a large framing nailer, March 6, 2006
Reviewer: A polymath
This is an excellent siding and framing nailer, however it
is not as powerful as a Hitachi NR83A framing nailer,
which has a substantially larger air chamber for driving
nails. In most cases this nailer is great for framing; its
compact size allows you to face-nail and toe-nail easier
in tight spaces. However, when nailing a .131 x 3" framing
nail into two pieces of old growth fir 2x (not as common
of scenario these days unless you reuse materials from
demolitions on the West coast), the nail will often sit
proud about an inch or more. The Hitachi NR83A will
usually sink the nail in this scenario, albeit sometimes
the nail may sit about a 1/4" proud.

This gone has been great. During the last month I've used
it to nail of sheating with 8p frame coils, done a pant
load of shingles with 5p coils and nailed of exterior trim
with s.s. ring 8p, all to the perfect depth with the easy,
tool-less depth of drive setting. Why 4 stars? because I
had to get a hanger for it, and oh yeah it didn't bl** me.
excellent gun, worth the price, December 6, 2004

i purchased two of these guns last year and have used them
heavily, without any problems. these are great tools. very
well designed. light enough for siding all day, compact
and very fast for framing, sheathing and subflooring. i
don't waste time loading nails every minute. no jam
problems. just don't try to load mangled coils, duh.
Great Nailer, Great Buy, March 15, 2004
Amazon's Tool Crib shipped on time with no glitches. The
75 nailer is typical of Hitachi's great nailers, and has
the versatility to do framing and siding. Mine has gone
through about 4000 2" Senco and 3" Bostich nails for fence
building without a miss and little sign of wear. Since I
only use it once in a while, I'm confident it will last me
