I'm a bit late to arrive but I'd suggest the Senco Air Free 41 finish nailer. It's technically airless (duh) so it doesn't require a compressor, hose and all that gear. It'll shoot 15 gauge nails (Senco DA nails are pretty common) The best part about it is you don't need fuel cells, glow plugs, regular teardowns and batteries like the Paslode. The Senco is simply 14.4 volt battery powered. Rather slick. I've used it a few times but haven't bought one yet.

I agree with Mini me on all three counts.
Bosch drill, Ridgid table saw, and Paslode.

Must admit though, a totally cordless 14.4 nailer sounds really nice to me, as long as it performs as well as advertised.

Makita also makes excellent hammer drills.

I have a bosch SDS hammer dril that has a drill chuck adapter as well, neat tool. It blasted a 1" hole through a 16" concrete foundation in just a few minutes with very little fatigue. Still need ear protection though.

Well here's my 2 cents worth. I live in a small town where the local lumber yard handles DeWalt tools, so mostofmy tools are Dewalt. I use to live in another community wherte there was a Delta dealer, so most of my older tools are Delta. My point is to worry less about the namebrand and find a knowledgable distributor tat can provide you with information, products, service and parts. If you need to buy trhought the internet or mail, contact the supplier and see how easy it is to work with them. Good toolsare important, but if the people selling them don't know how to use them, or can't provide service and good advice you just as well buy cheap stuff and throw themaway when they wear out.
