Yes. All day.

If you want to buy a cheap drill that might burn up or break or otherwise fail, HF is fine.

But I hate it when nails fail. Like you're holding that long piece of siding, resting it on the gun while you line it up. You have your neck cranked to the left while you sight along your chalk line. When you get the board where you need it you jam your shoulder into it so it will stay put while you unwind your neck to look at the gun. Then you push hard into the board with your left hand while you pull the gun back and put the gun in place on the board. This is for all the marbles; if this board moves you need to start all over. You fire the nail. What was that sound? Did it go? Lemme fire another one. Ok that was definitely a dry fire. What the hell. I've got the board hanging by one nail way down there and now I need to come down off this ladder.

I should've spent the extra $30.
Always is a strong word. Plus if he's spending a grand building a shed maybe splurging an extra $30 is worth it. I do have an hf 16 ga nailer and it works fine, just a bit heavy.
If you visit https://register.ridgidpower.com/start and sign in, click Register a New Purchase, enter the model # of your tool, enter its serial #, and get to Step 4: Store. Click Other and you'll see the option for Direct Tools Factory Outlet. Click that option and you'll see instructions for registering new and factory blemished tools for the LSA warranty. You'll need to mail them your original receipt and a print out of the registration form showing your Ridgid customer ID.

I've been through this process already for 3 factory blemished Ridgid tools that I had purchased from Direct Tools Factory Outlet. All three qualified for the LSA warranty.

Whomever you spoke with is misinformed.

I'm a fairly handy guy putting up a garden shed. Might use this tool 1-2 times a year after that. Looking at the Harbor Freight Central Pneumatic nailer vs this. HF is $56 after coupon. Is the quality on this tool worth the $30? Thanks.

At 1-2 times use a year HF is always better.

I'm no Carpenter, but I believe clipped head nails aren't allowed by code in some areas. Someone with more knowledge want to chime in?

The LSA doesn't make the $30 extra worth it?

Are we 100% sure they won't deny the LSA? With LSA this is a no brainer over HF

I think so personally, buy your call as either will probably get the job done. Id also suggest a palm nailer they are awesome for driving in joist hangers nails and you can get them for $15-20.

Thanks for the advise. I'm honestly still on the fence. I'll have to see if clipped head nails are going to be an issue with my building inspector.

I don't think they do the LSA on pneumatic tools.
From memory it's 3 years.

For the most part where nails are concerned Codes are concerned with Length and Diamater of the Shaft of the nail, and the depth of drive. Thats what brings the project up to the engineering specified by the engineer. It provides the Sheer value which keeps the building from Racking side to side and ties the walls to the roof and foundation. The head thats on the nail does next to nothing in these situations from an engineering perspective other than give us something to pull when we screw up. In situations where the fastner is providing hold down application then engineers call out a screw or a ring shank type nail.

All of that being said, local codes are their own nightmare and i wouldnt be at all surprised if some codes or inspectors didn't like clipped heads. Production Carpenters usually like them because they hold much more nails in a rack so they dont have to reload as often.
