If you have a lot of roof repairs to do, or if you're a roofing contractor or handyman who's often faced with roof repair situations, Duo-Fast recently introduced the Cordless Roofing Coil Nailer (Model DFCR175C, $459) that really makes life easier.

It operates on a combination of a battery and a fuel cell, and drives 1 1/4- to 1 3/4-inch roofing nails without a compressor and hose.

The nailer weighs just 7.5 pounds, and will drive about 900 nails on a fuel cell. Simply slip in the fuel cell and a charged battery, put in a coil of nails, and you're ready to go. For improved convenience and safety on the roof, the complete kit also includes a backpack that carries the nailer, nails, battery and fuel cell.
