First Fix nailer for the ring nails and better hold...

I use a pneumatic coil nailer, fires 45mm ring nails. Forget paslode, far too expensive use of nails, you have to reload it to often

I am currently working on a project at a local village shop, doing all the landscaping. About 25 years ago, when i was just starting out, the then shop owner got me to put up fencing, using concrete morticed posts and fetheredge.
Back then, i brought a compressor and a brad nailer for nailing up the fetheredge. Amazingly, the fencing is still original and still fixed together well considering the brads are not designed for such a task.
The gravel boards are rotting, but the rest is still spot on!

That was my thoughts with the brads not been.ideal for the job ...  well put together !! Haha
Could do it all by hand, but it's a  time saver with gun .. and it's something il need in the future down the line.

first fix 49-52mm threaded galvanised nails without exception.

Hammer and nail them if you can do a 10ft bay in less than 4 1/2 mins by that method.

It would probably take me a long day to equal that with a hammer and nails. Perhaps more.

Good nail gun though and I'd destroy it. Probably by half.
