Roger visits his friend Malcolm to put the new Hitachi NR1890DBCL up against the established Dewalt DCN692 to see how much of a difference Hitachi’s new air spring drive technology makes to performance.
Features of the new Hitachi NR1890DBCL/JP
The Hitachi NR1890DBCL/JP is powered by a lightweight, rechargeable 5.0 Ah Li-Ion battery, so there’s no need to replace fuel cells.
A unique air spring drive system that uses the compressed air sealed in the main unit brings various advantages of pneumatic technologies, including:
· Drives 1.5 to 2 nails per sec. with zero ramp-up time and quicker response time between drives
· Offers low-recoil and sets nails flush consistently
· No combustion noise and no gas fumes
· Consistent performance even at low temperatures or high altitudes
