Brad nailers-Senco 25XP vs Bostitch combo brad nailer/stapler10/20/20
I'm looking to get an 18 ga brad nailer. Do you have a preference for Senco vs. Bostitch? In particular, I was looking at the Senco Finish Pro 25XP or the Bostitch combo brad nailer/finish stapler. I was intrigued by the Bostitch because of the combo tool. Does anyone have experience with Senco vs Bostitch and the combo unit? I noticed the Bostitch is cheaper than the Senco.
The Bostitch 2 in 1 tool is a home owner grade tool, the pros are not going to like.
What is the 18ga Bostitch model that is similar to Senco 25XP? I was thinking of an 18ga vs 21ga to have more holding for the casing.
If you're planning to do much volume over time, neither. Senco may be getting better in quality again, but even that 25xp is more a "prosumer" quality piece.
Only guns I've never heard complaints about are Omer. Personally I only have a 16 gauge finisher from them, trimmed out a couple homes without one jam or nail set needed and the lockout on the trigger works excellent.
Senco, as I knew them, when out of business years ago. I found out when I tried to get my SFN-1 and a brad nailer rebuilt. I think they may be owned by Metabo now. For my 18 and 15 gauge I ended up going with Milwaukee 18v. The upside is they work great and no hose to get in the way. The downside is they are larger than air driven and more difficult to maneuver inside tight cabinets,
