    Question Anyone using the Max CN565S or CN70 Nailers?

    I am considering buying a good industrial production line quality air nailer to assemble a large number of brood boxes and honey supers and am looking at the Max air nailers. The Max CN565S is the Max air nailers Mannlake sells for assembling hive boxes.

    I like the CN565S but it is somewhat limited in nail size and I want a nailer that I can use for other projects around the farm as well. The CN70 can fire a somewhat longer nail which expands its versatility.

    I am still awaiting info. from Max USA about the CN665 and CN80. The CN665 can fire 7d nails but the CN80 manual says .099 is the smallest diameter shank nails.

    Anyhow, just wanted to find out if anyone here is using any of these nailers and what their feedback, comments, and suggestions are. TIA.

    Greetings. I service and sell tools for a living. The thing I remind everyone is the serviceability and parts availability of various brands of tools. If you lived in Montana I would not recommend buying the Max brand. They are great tools and even manufacturer tools for other major company's but in Montana parts are next to impossible to get.

    Yep! As a general contractor I've owned about every brand of nailer and stapler and had 2 of the Max coil nailers. Good guns but the coil nail magazine is cheap plastic and breaks easily. After day one you'll probably be holding the magazine together with duct tape. I currently own a Hitachi coil nailer and it's the longest lasting of any I've owned. I recommend you go with a stick nailer for longevity and ease of use. Senco, Senco, Senco, Senco!!!!

    Never used Senco compressors but I'd be willing to bet a few bucks that Senco just buys them from a compressor manufacturer and labels them. Very commonly done. Shop around, most brand name compressors are reliable. You don't need much to shoot nails or staples; 90-100 psi and 5-10 cfm will run multiple nail guns all day.

    Not the answer you are looking for, but Hitachi has been the best brand we have ever used. We've used them for years and have never needed professional service.
