Hilti cordless framing gun GX90

Recommended Posts

I'd this gun being made and sold? It's similar to paslode?

Heard they work really well in cold.

Any chance it's coming to USA

Truthfully the only Hilti tool I have is their 12v hammer drill. Nice little gun but I don’t own anything else, I run a 20v Dewalt framer and have had it for five years of at home use, I’ve done some framing with it, mostly interior walls, a couple of PT foundations for sheds, hot tubs etc. and am using it on an shed project for a friend but no experience with Hilti. If it’s like everything else they make it’ll be pretty slick I’m sure.

I just picked up DeWalt framer for few small Decks that where less then 1/day build. Thought it was the biggest let down pos I've ever used. Totally inconsistent nail depth. Returned right away. I would go with paslode but can't stand the smell. Would give hilti framer a shot if it was available. Next small deck I might just pick up the Hitachi . Total beast of a framer and no gas.

Ive heard people bash the Dewalt 2 speed and laud it. Like i said, I’ve had mine for quite a while now without any issues except battery life. It operates best on the 5.0 or Flex.  Mine sinks the nails well, I’ve only had two jambs and the adjustments have been smooth.  No reason whatsoever to go with another one very happy.

Maybe it's the pressure treated lumber.

The dewalt framer seems to be liked by a lot but I've never used one. I myself have paslode guns and other than the fixing gun which jams more often than it probably should I have only ever used the Hitachi which is as powerful as my Senco SN4 pneumatic gun but with the bonus of cordless and no gas. No gas nd cordless is a big saving but it comes at the cost of a lot more weight.

 

I personally dont mind weight in cordless tools but with Hitachi being a lot newer than the Dewalt and the two operating by completely different mechanisms, it's not really a fair comparison. All guns were tested for speed, power, runtime and ergonomics on a YouTube video and paslode was still the favourite.
