New building codes are requiring larger nails to fasten engineered materials. Many contractors are using two different nailers to handle their framing needs. Makita’s 3-1/2” High Pressure Framing Coil Nailer, model AN930H, features high pressure technology to meet the demands for larger nails, higher capacity, and greater versatility in a range of materials including the increasingly dense engineered lumber used in framing construction.
The AN930H can operate at high pressure (170-320 PSI). With the power to consistently drive larger nails into dense materials like OSB, LVL and glue lam, it gives framing contractors one nailer to handle a range of framing needs. The AN930H has a superior power to weight ratio: it’s up to 30% more compact with up to 30% less weight than a conventional nailer. It weighs only 5.7 lbs. yet the high-capacity canister holds up to 300 nails in sizes ranging from 1-3/4-inch to 3-1/2-inch (.099” - .148” shank diameter, wire collated).
With increased pressure for driving each nail, the AN930H delivers more consistent flush nailing. “Tool-less” depth adjustments have been engineered to provide the option of precise flush or countersink nailing, and a two-mode selector trigger switch allows the user to select sequential or contact driving options.
The AN930H has an easy-load nail canister and a see-through window, with a nail size adjustment base for increased productivity. The canister base adjusts easily for various nail sizes, delivering faster, more efficient loading for increased productivity. For user comfort, there are large rubberized grips and a tool hook to keep the nailer close by while not in use.
The AN930H is engineered for use with a high-pressure compressor, including the Makita 2.5 HP High Pressure Air Compressor, model AC310H (not included). It is ideal for framers using soft, hard and dense materials, as well as engineered lumber including OSB, LVL and glue lam.
