I recently picked up the Model # PCN65 for $149.99 and have used it with Hitachi brand 1 3/4 and 2 1/4" wire collated siding nails. Works pretty good and only had a few starting issues until we got it dialed in with compressor and its depth adjustment. No jams or misfires with about 8 coils of nails shot through.
Installed about 60 pieces of siding and also nailed a bunch of fence pickets on a new section of fence with it. Was worried about it being a cheaper version but it served its purpose quite well for a residential need.

For my needs the Freeman sounds good. Have you found the hitachi to be one of the best for longevity and the ability to be repaired? I have seen people swear by their roofing nailer.

I have the Freeman coil siding nailer and love it. I put siding on my new shed last summer and if i can convince my wife to let me, will be replacing the vinyl crap siding on the front of our house soon with hardi-plank. Add a few drops of oil, hook it up to the hose and go. Worth every penny when you are doing siding.

If you are going to be doing hardi-plank siding, might I recommend "PacTool International SA903 2-Piece Gecko Gauge Hardi Board Siding Gauges [amazon.com]" These are the difference between a good job and a mediocre job with siding, especially if you are working alone. These were worth every penny of what looks to be overpriced. I did the entire large shed on my own. Between these holding the planks and the nailer fastening them down, it made short work with no frustrations.

I dont have a Hitachi nailer but only used their nails. The Freeman made nails were about the same price but Lowes had the Hitcahi ones on sale and with the coupon they mailed me they came out cheaper. Plus the galvanizing on the Hitachi nails was better than Freeman ones.
All the other nailers I own are all Bostich framing and also multiple finishing nailers.
I dont do much siding so the price on the Freeman was good for me and my needs and it turned out to be a nice nailer. The fencing was secondary and it did quite well there also.

Ditto this. Everything he said. Except for the part about his shed and his wife. look around
Good gun, and those clampy guages mean one man can run 12' pieces of hardi siding no problemo.

Between the PCN50 vs PCN65, which would you guys recommend for a DIY'er looking to install Hardi fiber cement siding? The PCN65 looks more versatile and the majority of reviews seem good, but there are several negative reviews of it failing. The PCN50 just doesn't seem to have as many reviews to make an informed decision. Ideally, I'd like to be able to use the nailer for more than just siding, so I'm kinda leaning towards the PCN65...

The pcn65 is the gun that I have, so no experience with the other models. Inside the drum that holds the coils of nails is a base-plate that you can move up and down to accommodate the different sized nails. The coils have to line up with the feed into the "barrel".

The gun I got has been great. It's sometimes a bit finicky to get the plastic collated strips fed into it, and it has the rare misfire, but for this price ( a little less than I paid for mine 4 years ago ){ unless the build quality has changed }, you can't go wrong.

Boom boom boom, you're only nailing along the top of the hardi, so it's "blind nailing". It took some research but I found a variety of nails of the correct angle and collation on amazon.

good luck

The PCN50 is a newer nailer, hence the less reviews. Regarding any negative issues with the PCN65 I can say this company is known for its overly generous customer service in making sure you are taken care of with any issues. Call their customer service number and someone you can speak with picks up immediately, something that will not happen with a much larger, more expensive brand of nailer.
