Started my small gardening business about 18 months ago but fencing is now becoming the majority of my work. I'm still using hammer and nails but i think the time has come to invest in nail gun to save me time and effort.
I think an elctrical one would be too restrictive due to the required supply of power so that leaves gas or air powered ones....this is where my naivity kicks in....
I don't know on paper the advantages and disadvantages of each. I just know from using them.
The air gun will need a compressor will is the same as an electrical gun...would result in restricting you. I have only used air guns when working in a workshop so i should imagine this is because it is cheaper to run and only used where the gun is normaly in one spot.
When im on site i have always used a gas nail gun e.g. pasload
Im not too sure now but when i was at college studying joinery pasload come in and provided a free course in using them. This in return provided me with a llicence. Im not to sure if this is only paperwork for big building sites or it it is something that is needed in using one even when working on your own.
If i was doing fenching all the time i would go with the pasload gun everytime.
