After spending around 3k on ryobi tools this is my worst purchase to date. The 18v finnish nailer. The staff at Bunnings echuca have no idea about these products. It states that it will take a 2 1/2 inch nail. It does not! Its 3mm short an the longest nail (if you can call em that) is 57mm. This gun struggles to punch a nail all the way thru the timber so I still have to pick up a hammer. No instructions are included so I have to wing it. Maybe its me but without instructions how will I know. An yes the rear switch is all the way on the + . This is my last purchase of ryobi tools. Sad really as everything else ive purchased ive been happy with. #sadhomehandyman.
Purchased in August 2020 at Echuca for $319.00.
Easy to use, light weight, I will never hammer in another nail again :)
After a lot of research I finally went in to sus out the Ryobi one plus battery operated range of nail guns.
The Bunnings staff were very helpful and loaded in a battery for me to try the guns out (no nails of course)
I tried the newer models on display but they were so heavy and I could not hold them with one hand. With a 5.0 battery in they were even heavier. I ended up holding the gun with both hands. Being so heavy I would of struggled to use the gun.
So unless I am an octopus I saw no way I could hold any piece of wood let alone nail it i...
Purchased in June 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $240.00.
Saved Me Hours
I purchased this product after laying laminate floating floors through my house and needing to attach the scotia to the skirting boards.
Originally I was going to have to use a hammer and nails, as well as a nail punch, climbing around on my hands and knees, nailing them in one by one... That was after spending an hour drilling pilot holes into all of the pieces of trim.
I was seriously dreading the job, I kept putting it off until finally I decided to go and buy a nailgun with the hope that it would give me the motivation to finish the ...project. I already have several of Ryobi's other tools and the only reason that I chose this nailer was for that reason, because it saved me buying the batteries. I was slightly worried because Ryobi isn't known for being the best quality on the market but I figured at just over $200 with a 6 year warranty and with the time it would save me I was willing to buy it. I'm extremely happy I did, this thing made the job effortless and I could tell that the quality was decent for the price. I had absolutely no issues at all, it was more powerful that I expected and light and easy to use, I even managed to drive a nail all the way through a piece of timber so that it was halfway out of the other side. (you're not meant to do this but I wanted to try). So it doesn't lack power at all, the nails are cheap, it speeds up jobs by hours and it is affordable. I would 100% recommend this to anybody, my expectations were exceeded.
Questions & Answers
Hi,I have just tried my second Ryobi 18V Airstrike stapler. like the first one this one stopped working after 6 shots. It makes all the right noises but will not fire.Have tried difference batteries,differance staples still no go.
like above do I keep taking it back till I get a good one?
Hi my Ryobi cordless Brad air strike is not punching the nails in not even half way and the settings are on full and using the longer nails or shorter nails still wont punch them in was working a treat when I first got it but now it wont even go into a bit of pine and iv cleaned the Track where the nail down iv sprayed it with some WD-40 iv tried a new battery but still having the same problem the only thing I could think of is could there be a air leak in a hose from the compressor and its not getting the full burst to punch the nails in cheers
Using it for fence pailings - 6ASCRISIS said not recommended it. Is that for hardwood fencing or it's ok for treated pine palings?
Same goes for treated pine palings - it will do the job in an emergency and *hold* the paling in place if you need to replace one or two for a quick fix until you can nail them properly and use the longest brad (50mm I think?) (will be doing this myself this weekend) BUT the brads this nailer uses are not like the larger nails normally used for fencing. They are very thin, not as long, and won't have the longer term holding power of nails. The heads of the brads are very small and would probably slide out of the wood if you pushed the paling hard enough.
Thanks for your reply, very helpful.
