Guns normal price is 159.99 and has been 88 a while back.
Pneumatic was just on sale for 28.88.

So this combo price pretty much is about the same as the best ever. Reviews seem pretty solid as well for a cheap as this bad boy is. Pretty hopeful myself as I'm building my home this summer and will find out myself just how good or reliable it is.

QA Note: Deal has been extended and is still valid.

How does this nailer compared to the mid-grade harbor freight nailer which you can pick up for $80 with coupon?

Seeing as how this unit comes with palm nailer, I'd say this is a pretty good deal comparatively. Not knowing build quality of either, but I think parts would be easier to find for Husky brand. Not sure about Warranty, but purchasing ext warranty from HF can be useful.

Husky is just Home Depot's in house brand. The tools are actually made by several different manufacturers, one of which being Black and Decker.

I would not put them above Harbor Freight's offerings in terms of quality, as some of them are rebrands of the same sourced components.

However, you're more likely to get a no questions asked/no restocking fee return at Home Depot than you are at Harbor Freight, so factor that in if you like to abuse your tools.

With that said, the HF nailer he linked is perfectly adequate for non-professional work and a 20% off coupon more than justifies a consideration, if it weren't for this better deal.

It's not going to be a DeWalt, but let's face it, you can't talk DeWalt fans into buying anything else.

Understood, thanks for the opinion on quality, I am not in the market, but all good info. I like Dewalt tools (as you mention above) but just like Husky, they used to be better in years past when USA made. Neither are really the best money can buy. I still like Dewalt battery operated tools, really do not like their pneumatic framing nailers though, I really dislike plastic collated nails for any mfr. Personally use Paslode, Senco or Hitachi for framing nailers.

This one from Harbor Freight might really impress you just by how versatile it is for the price:

The ability to load pretty much any nail you can find without having to swap tools can make for some pretty interesting work.

I bought this 5 years ago for odd jobs. Has held up great, fwiw. Hundreds of feet of 8' fencing, in addition to other tasks.

Imo Husky stuff is generally pretty good. Its comparable to Lowes kobalt. Husky anything is usually better than harbor freight anything.

Home Depot's cheapest in house brand is HDX (like lowes blue hawk) and I'd even take that over most Harbor Freight.

For me Harbor Freight stuff is almost always dissaponting and underperforming, tho they do have a few standout gems.

I have a husky stapler/brad nailer and I love it. Feels well built. Very ergo.

AFAIK, Husky air nailers are made by http://primeglobalproducts.com/. They also make/sell Numax and Freeman nailers. A lot of the brands seem to share castings/parts. All 3 brands seem to rate highly for the value. Framing 3 tract homes a week? Probably aren't going to want anything in this category. Framing a backyard shed or basement? You're probably fine with anything in this category.

Bought this 3 years ago for $99. I like it and would buy it again but I am definitely not a pro. Only thing i noticed is that it can be a bit finicky with 2inch hitachi nails but I might not have had the pressure dialed in right.

I had to do a little research to see if you can remove the safety tip, and you can. In case anyone is wondering.

I ordered me one to put a shed kit up. I did not want to be nailing in 1000's of nails with a hammer.

I purchased an HDX palm nailer years ago, for $10 as part of a sale. it was orange then.

It had been sitting in my tool chest unused until a couple weeks ago. I've been residing my house and occasionally i get a nail that doesn't go all the way in. that little palm nailer is amazing for driving nails in the rest of the way without bending them over. A hammer works too, but those nails in the soffit that are right next to the facia board are difficult to hit with a hammer without hitting the facia or bending the nail. That little palm nailer makes it so nice.

I also used it to drive a few 16p nails which it can do, but it takes it a little longer than I'd like as each hit drives the nail about 1/8". There is no "trigger on the nailer, it just automatically starts hammering when something touches inside the nail socket.

I suppose part of the appeal with Harbor Freight tools is that you can beat them to death the first time and learn from your mistakes without spending a fortune, and then go out and buy the better model when you find yourself needing it again.

But the other nice part about HF is when you find something that just does the job and you know you didn't spend a fortune to get it done.

And usually, I'm able to do a job and still have a good tool at the end, so HF must be doing something right.

This is probably a bad analogy, since there are just as many brand snobs in the kitchen, but: A good knife doesn't guarantee a good meal.
