Campbell-Hausfeld FP209599AV Air Compressor Nailer Kit Decent for Consumers, but Ultimately Limited

Campbell-Hausfeld FP209599AV Nailer Kit Campbell-Hausfeld's Air Compressor Nailer Kit is great for home use, but is ultimately too limited for many shops. Campbell-Hausfeld’s entry features a lightweight (18 lbs.) two-gallon compressor, a combination brad nailer stapler, a recoil hose, and a pack with three male couplings, a tire chuck, and a pair of inscrutable (to me) plastic nozzles. It’s clearly a consumer-grade package, available for about $139. Curiously, the horsepower rating of the motor is not listed anywhere, and its CFM rating (0.39 at 90 PSI) is the lowest of this group. The nailer is likewise of limited capacity. Yes, it can shoot both brads and staples, but only short ones. The range is 1/2" to 1" for staples, 5/8" to 1-1⁄4" for brads. Moreover, the tool lacks a depth-of-drive adjuster, fires only in the sequential mode, and requires you to use tools to clear jams.
