Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light Very happy to get this tool. I am a carpenter by trade, use my tools daily.The Lifetime Warranty is a huge plus! (drivers , bumpers, O-rings) Nice carry case, safety glasses, nails and wrench included. The safety spring is light enough to eliminate any marking on soft wood. Other 18 ga nailers I have had left a mark on the wood at every nail, just shallow enough that it couldn't be filled. It's not a problem with this tool ! I haven't seen another gun that will shoot 2 1/8 in 18 ga nails either. The nail magazine is made of plastic, not sure if it would withstand a drop from a 10ft step ladder, but who drops their guns right? The Price is great. Ridgid is making a believer out of me. I am switching over to their tool line every time one of other brand tools wears out, simply because of their great warranty. I had a defective lithium battery on a drill, they replaced it free of charge and delivered it ( no shipping charge) to my doorstep. January 4, 2014

The R213BNA’s cylinder, o-ring, and piston ring in are lubricated with a sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further lubrication is required.
