Yesterday Hitachi announced the release of their NR90AF framing nailer.  If you’re asking what the big difference is between the new nailer and the older Hitachi NR90AD, the AF features a 28-degree magazine that’s built for round-head nails, while the AD takes a clipped-head load.

You’ll notice that the new nailer isn’t bedecked in the familiar green and black — depending on your tastes, that may be a good thing.  It sports the usual goodies, like a dial adjustment for depth and a hardened claw tip that reduces wear on the nose and minimizes slippage when driving at an angle, or “toe-nailing.”   The AF can be loaded with 2” to 3-1/2” “rounds,” and the magazine rail holds a 100-nail load like many others in its class, for longer times between reloads.

The NR90AF should come in at around $260, which is a bit cheaper than some of the full-sized framers on display shelves now.
