Roofing nailer is lightweight

DEWALT has added the DW45RN Coil Roofing Nailer to its line of construction nailers. The lightweight nailer is said to be best used for installing standard asphalt shingles.

The 5.2-pound Coil Roofing Nailer reportedly features strong feed and drive mechanisms, parallel valve technology to provide dampened recoil, a composite piston ring to extend the tool's life and a window in the canister that enables workers to identify when they need to reload the nailer. At less than 10 inches in height, the nailer allows workers to nail in hard-to-reach places, and the tool's integrated latch and hinge tray can be adjusted to accommodate different nail lengths.
