One of the most talked about nailers in 2016 is the Metabo framing nailer. Not only is it light and compact, it is also powerful enough to lay down some impressive walls. For a homeowner the work this can cut out is great, but it also provides that professionally look when using this tool.

A framing nailer should be lightweight to operate, and the Metabo is not just lightweight, it is also good on the arm. Even with heavier lengths of framing nails, this blower can load them with ease. With its ergonomic design, it allows for a user to hang, swing, and drive nails with ease. For those who like their nailers quiet, the Metabo isn't going to disappoint you. It is also great on the budget with all of its convenience. It has a lot to offer for the price, and that makes it a good overall performer.

The nailer has been tested using a variety of materials such as coated and uncoated framing nails as well as nails with a capacity of 8 pieces per nailer. This means it can be used with a variety of materials as well. While the nailer does accept a variety of materials such as wood, plastic, and metal, it does need to be cleaned regularly to be in perfect shape to be used.

Testing has shown this nailer to average 7 full first-shot-on-target shots per second without sacrificing its impressive power and speed. As long as the nailer is operated according to its particular guidelines, it can be put to use to great effectiveness.
