In the framing nailer category, it can be easy to get overwhelmed when searching for a nailer. There are so many on the market and it can be confusing to determine which nailers suit your use.

The Metabo HPT palm nailer is an excellent nailer for a general purpose user. It has many of the benefits like any other high-quality nailer in this category. It can handle up to 3-1/2" nails and can be purchased for a relatively low cost.

The pneumatic nailer can be purchased in both single and double shot versions. The double version will be slightly cheaper and will also feature a double magazine. The single nailer has a smaller and lighter trigger than the double version.

The magazine in the nailer should be easy to load and the magazine in the nailer holds a capacity of 38. The 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" nail capacity is pretty standard for the nailer in this category, so you can expect to get plenty of use out of the nailer.

The palm nailer will also feature a 360° swivel fitting, which will make for a much more comfortable nailer to use.

The trigger of the nailer is a magnetic one, which can make for much easier usage and will also help to reduce fatigue when using the nailer.

The pole can be adjusted to three different lengths to suit the user's needs.
