Hitachi Power Tools (Hitachi Koki USA, Ltd.) today announced the new A5 series of pneumatic framing nailers including the NR83A5 21° Plastic Strip Nailer, NR83A5(S) 21° Plastic Strip Nailer without Depth Adjustment, NR83AA5 30° Paper Strip Nailer and Hitachi NV83A5 16° Coil Nailer. The new A5 series gives the pros exactly what they’ve been asking for; a nailer just like the original NR83 model that delivers the feel they know, the speed they need, the durability they expect, and with maintenance simplified. And each A5 nailer now comes with a heavy-duty rafter hook for convenience.

Sometimes in order to make things better you need to take them back to the original design. The infamous NR83 nailer models have been around for decades and are seen on jobsites across the country because of their reputation for being workhorses that perform. These A5 framing nailers have the same legendary durability and reliability professionals in the residential and multifamily building industry have come to trust, but now with an improved trigger design and sharing all the same internal parts as the original NR83A.

They feature Hitachi’s unique cylinder valve driving system, which uses the cylinder to open and close the valve. The advantage is faster action. Fabricated with industrial quality parts (no plastic) - there’s basically less that can go wrong. This added durability helps get more done with less downtime. The cylinder valve system is also self-cleaning and highly resistant to grease and grime buildup which adds to the simplified low maintenance professionals appreciate. 

The A5 series nailers are outfitted with Hitachi’s all-new patented Selective Actuation located on the trigger so the user can transition from sequential to contact mode quickly. This not only reduces the total number of parts in the trigger, but also eliminates all composite parts for added durability. Out of the box they are locked in sequential mode. To switch to contact mode, on first use the lock pin needs to be removed (with pliers or a key), then the change rod can slide forward for quick and easy transitions. 

These A5 framing nailers
 accepts nails ranging from 2” – 3-1/4” in length, and are capable of driving a 3-1/4” nails into even the toughest of engineered lumber with ease. Their performance is only enhanced by their convenience. Their hardened claw tips resist wear on the noses and minimize slippage when driving at an angle or “toe-nailing.” They come with factory installed ¼” industrial fittings, and the ideal operating air pressure is 70-120 psi. Rafter hooks are now included with the A5 series and can be mounted on the left or right side of the nailers for convenience on a jobsite. In the event of a lodged nail, the open nose design provides easy access to clear the jam. Ergonomic long-lasting non-slip rubber grips on the handles help maintain a secure hold. These nailers offer an incredible power to weight ratio, and are designed to balance in the users hands for minimum fatigue during extended use or overhead applications.

NR83A5 3-1/4” Plastic Strip Collated Framing Nailer accepts 21° plastic collated strip nails from 2” - 3-1/4” in length and .113” - .131” in nail diameter. This nailer is equipped with an industrial steel magazine that can withstand jobsite abuse. Additionally, the magazine can hold 2 strips of nails at a time and features a locking feeder system to make replenishments quick and easy. It weighs just 8.8 lbs or 9.1 lbs if the rafter hook is installed. The NR83A5 has a tool-less depth of drive adjustment that comes in handy for improved control and flexibility when fastening into various types of wood.
