With a housing that is crafted from magnesium, a metal that is comparable to aluminum, the Wen 61782 Coil Roofing Nailer is a lightweight tool that is comfortable to use, yet it is strong enough to absorb the rigors normally associated with construction work areas. Indeed, the reason why high-quality car wheels are called "mag wheels" is that they are made of magnesium.
The Wen 61782 is designed to fire roofing gauge 11 nails with lengths starting at 7/8 to 1-3/4 inches. It features a coil magazine that can hold 120 nails, which means you can nail plenty of shingles before you need to reload.
Apart from asphalt shingles, you can also use the nailer to fasten fiber cement roofing or siding, waterproof tar paper, vinyl siding, and other roof materials. The machine is strong enough for the installation of an entire roof or other re-roof applications.
Operating at an air pressure of 70 – 120 PSI, the nailer has no trouble driving nails through any roofing material and into the rafters. Depth of drive is adjustable without tools, which leaves you with one less tool to carry as you are perched at the top of a house installing roofing materials. In the unlikely event of a nail jam, the nose is easily opened to remove the offending nail. With its no nail trip lockout mechanism, the nailer will not fire if the magazine has run out of nails. This reduces damage to its internal parts, and conserves compressed air. For a quick work, the Wen 61782 can be set to a contact trip operation wherein all you need to do to fire is to keep the trigger depressed while you carefully press the nose into your work.
At the rear end of the magnesium casing is a fully adjustable exhaust vent so you can direct expelled air away from you or your work. Below the vent is the grip handle that is wrapped in rubber for a firm and comfortable hold. Further below at the heel is the air inlet fitting sized 1/4-inch NPT.
The unit comes with lubricating oil, adjusting wrenches, safety glasses, and a carrying case.
