This is an amazing deal, the equivalent brad nailer is going for $179, they usually sell this finish nailer for $199, on sale for half off. Refurbished, but from my experience, that means pretty much as good as new from this company. New it goes for $250 at HD.

I have the brad nailer from DirectToolsOutlet and it works great. Ordered this and should arrive soon. Also, free shipping!

Ah I got excited until I saw this is refurbed and no lifetime warranty. Still a good price, but since I already have air nailers this isn't something I'm going to jump on.

certified preowned, not refurb... but yeah, that's not great. lack of lifetime warranty really ruins the deal too.

anybody actually used these? i've looked at them in store, they're absolutely massive in comparison to a normal finishing nailer, seems like these would be a little unwieldy. currently use a portable pancake compressor and a bosch nailer, it's more than portable enough for my needs... but these are interesting.

Like I said, I have used the exact same brad nailer and I'm a huge fan. Would I run a business on these? No. But I use it all the time when I hate bringing out the air compressor. Absolutely recommend the brad nailer, and I'd expect that the finish nailer isn't much different.

Also, the brad nailer I got from them might as well been new - even though it was called pre-owned.

Hmm. I have to think about this. My gf has the Ryobi AirStrike 16ga and I've been borrowing it for months now lol. I have DeWALT 18 and 15 pneumatic guns, and a plug-in pancake compressor. I've been also eyeing up that DeWALT Flexvolt 60v pancake compressor, which would essentially make all my pneumatic guns cordless. Still have an air hose but slightly more convenient. I have to say though, being able to pop a battery on that Airstrike and go is extremely convenient. Plenty of power in it too.

Read reviews of the 16g, it doesn't get terribly great ones. I was going to buy this last month at this price, but I wasn't sold. The 18g works like a charm though.

Been using a cheapo Refurb Ryobi Air Strike 18ga at the shop for a little while now and it has been going great. Got it for far far far less than this with 2 batteries and a vacuum from a friend.

The convenience is amazing once you start getting used to it. For hobbyist and DIY is perfect. For contractor work, its perfect only for small jobs, don't bother with large jobs. Waiting for a battery to charge is much longer than an air compressor to refill.

For the price of this finish nailer, I should be able to justify no warranty to use throughout the remodel of the entire house without the loud racket of the air compressor... even the CA Air Tools silent one isn't so silent at night throughout all the house. Then there are those times you just need to fire 1 nail, and it isn't worth all that noise.

I would assume no with all the comments above

Without the warranty it is not a deal to me. I would love one but will wait as my air nailers working fine

No, this isn't even being sold by home depot, it's a used product.
