We're excited to announce the arrival of the Everwin MCN40 Joist Hanger Nailer, launched exclusively through Nail Gun Depot! Conceived with innovation and convenience in mind, this metal connector nailer is noticeably compact. But don't let its small size fool you.

Imagine a pneumatic joist nailer that weighs just 4.4 lbs and can tackle metal framing hardware with respectable power. The manufacturer is so confident in this tool's capability, Everwin calls the MCN40, a “construction nailer with an industrial tool’s core.”

MCN40 Joist Hanger Nailer from Everwin

In development for some time, the MCN40 joist hanger gun was put through its preliminary paces. "The development took us four years, as we went through rounds of destructive testing and structural reinforcement," states Charlie Lin, Global Sales Director for Everwin Pneumatic Corp.

So, what does the MCN40 have that its competitors don't? It offers a tool with industrial backbone, at a very accessible price point. We've coined this "expert engineering with efficient execution."

Everwin MCN40 Nailer Features

At just 10.8” tall, the MCN40’s compact stature lets it easily drive TICO nails in challenging spaces. This joist hanger nail gun deftly navigates 12" O.C. joists thanks to an efficient engine design. And because of its lightness, the tool has less heft; a relief for arms, shoulders and back. These qualities make it great for overhead connecting as well.

Beyond its stealth, another notable feature is the patented tool nose. This exposes the nail’s tip, acting as a guide for driving nails into connector holes. A patent-pending Anti-Kickback pawl prevents nails from backing into the nose, offering greater stability. Overall, you can expect faster, more precise nailing.

Features on the Everwin MCN40 Joist Hanger Nailer

The tool's ergonomic design includes a cushioned grip, and aluminum magazine for better balance and maneuverability. Other features include a 360-degree rotating exhaust to keep debris out of the face, a rotating metal belt hook, and dry-fire lockout. The nailer has sequential firing and a safety trigger lock to prevent accidental firing.
