Porter-Cable 15 degree Coil Roofing Nailer  model RN175B

The Porter Cable Compact Roofing Nailer  model RN175B  is a high production roofing nailer, designed for a professional.  The nailer can easily be switched between bump or sequential fire operation which is essentail to most roofers I know.

The RN175B weighs 4.75 pounds and has a compact body style for balance and control while its aluminum frame and cap provides durability for those tough construction environments. Accepting 15 degree wire-weld coil nails, ranging from 3/4 inch to 1-3/4 inches (.120 max diameter), this tool offers an impressive 120 nail magazine capacity. A selectable trigger system easily converts from sequential to contact mode in just seconds and the over-molded grip provides comfort.

Complete with a three year limited warranty, one year service contract and ninety day money back guarantee, the Model RN175B roofing nailer kit includes the basic tool, oil, wrenches, 3/8 inch x 1/4 inch NPT plug, and owner’s manual.
