Hitachi Power Tools has announced the newest addition to its extensive pneumatic lineup: a 1½-inch Strap-Tite Fastening System Strip Nailer. This nailer is designed specifically for fastening various types of pre-drilled metal connectors to wood by using the nail tip as a guide for exact placement with a sequential drive mechanism. This nailer rounds out Hitachi’s Strap-Tite family and offers superior precision and control for metal connector to wood applications. The positive safety exposes the nail tip so that the user can guide the nail into the pre-drilled metal connector hole without damaging the collation, ensuring each nail is precisely driven. Dry-fire lockout prevents accidental dry-fire and assures the nail is lodged securely. This tool is lightweight and well-balanced for minimum fatigue during extended. Maneuverability is enhanced due to the narrow design and short magazine that fits into tight corners and awkward angles with ease. For more information, visit
