Rated 1 out of 5 by from yet another user whose unit wont drive full depth I have now endured the horrific headache of asking tech support for help with the fact that my driver has recently started doing what so may others have reported...it wont drive a 1 1/4" nail flush in pine. Clearly this is a problem! But now...even though I have registered for "lifetime warranty" I have to bring the unit AND the battery it came with AND the charger it came with (are you kidding me????) to Home Depot who will "send it in" and maybe, just maybe, it will come back working correctly. Given the many, many other folks who have had this problem I have my doubts. The part that really burns me is that after a dozen or so "comments" talking about this problem some clown from Rigid responded to one of them and said that they hadnt had this kid of problem raised in the past.....really????

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I purchased my tool as a non-working unit from a wholesale warehouse and was able to fix the issue without purchasing any replacement parts. So, while I can’t speak to the longevity of the tool or the conditions that caused the failure in the first place, I have been using it to do trim work for several months with no issues. As with any nail gun, pneumatic or cordless, there are limited instances where the head does not drive completely, but overall, I am very impressed with the performance. I have the 4Ah batteries and they will drive hundreds of nails without recharging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought this would be a convenient tool to have for small jobs. Way wrong! Don't waste your money. This thing leaves nails sticking out of your work, even MDF. Both depth adjustments are set as deep as tool will allow, the 3rd setting is the mode selector for single shot. I tried contacting customer service, no response from them, shocker. You'd never be able to trim an entire house with this thing. I tried the Dewalt, that's the gun to get. It works like a nail gun is supposed to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unable to do the job. I have been a Ridgid fan for some time. I bought a set of x5 Ridgid cordless tools, and after attempting to drive finishing nails with this nailer I found that this tool is incapable of driving a 2.5 inch brad flush into a stud. My day is lost, and all of the tools went back to Home Depot. I won't be buying Ridgid ever again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid battery nailer with sufficient power I'm an Install Manager for a building supply company where I'm in charge of several turn-key trade accounts, primarily for windows, doors, and trim. Several times a week I have to pull out tools to perform minor punch work, so I selected a bundle of Rigid tools to keep behind the seat of my extended cab truck for such occasions. I use this nailer primarily to install trim. Pros: Workhorse nailer. This nailer will handle most anything I can throw at it. It's durable, I've dropped it numerous times and it's still intact. Great to have a built-in light that can be turned on without having to engage the nailer itself. I've used this nailer several hours a week for the last eight months and it's never jammed. The head is designed with good visibility for where to place your shot. Some pneumatic nailers I have are better suited for delicate detailed work, but this is fine for most trim work. I'm comfortable assembling returns on crown and rounded corners with it without fear of blow-out or not putting a nail where I need to. Cons: Heavy for a nailer. I didn't compare weights when I chose this tool, but my arm tires quickly when I have to hold it above my head or out horizontally for a long time. Some of my coworkers have also commented about it being heavy. I'd compare it's weight to a standard framing gun. Misshot nails. 2" nails have a tendency to misshoot or not seat fully on occasion. I've played with the setting dial on the gun, but I still have to use a nail punch frequently to set nail heads. Overall, it's a good tool. Doesn't drain battery life quickly at all. Great nailer when you need to put up some trim quickly and don't want to drag out a compressor and hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Nail Set Adjustments There are 3 settings for nail set depth: 1) Depth setting knob on front of tool, 2) Power setting on back of tool, AND 3) There is a setting between just above the battery. I think everyone commenting about nail setting miss this third setting. I did too at first and was frustrated by flush nails until I found the third setting. I am using a 2" nail going through 3/4" pine into a stud. It's setting the nail just underneath the surfce like I want. I like this nailer. Got it well below market at a pawn shop. Probably because someone didn't like the nail set depth, LOL!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep a nail set close! I have several Ridgid tools, and it has become my preferred brand when purchasing new tools. I was excited to add this nailer to my collection, but was really let down after using it. With pressure and depth both set to max, I could not sink 1" nails into pine!! I had to go back and manually set every nail. This is no where near the standard I have come to expect from Ridgid, and sadly this nail gun will be going back to Home Depot ASAP. I love and always recommend Ridgid tools, but skip on this one until they can resolve this issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was hoping for better I bought this nailer so wouldn't have to drag my compressor out to the field on tiny fixes. I started using it and the nail heads were being left out of the wood and it wouldn't counter sink them. After a few minutes, this stopped and I didn't have a problem other than having to set the nails. I pulled it out again today, 2 weeks after buying and using it for the first time. Now, rather than just leaving the nail head out an 1/8th of an inch, it will only penetrate 1/8th of an inch into pine.... if it will even fire at all. I only shot maybe 50 nails with this gun before it stopped working. This is not what I was expecting at all. I have always trusted Rigid tools, but this one is junk.
