    Hate to say it as it doesn't really help but I swapped to pneumatic nail guns (bostitch & senco) and I can fire 1,000 nails without 1 jamming.

    Depends on what you mean by cleaning.
    If you have used the paslode a lot it needs stripped right down to the inside and cleaned out and oiled so that the piston ring can slide up and down inside the bore easily.
    As for the hitachi no idea.

    you must clean these very often if used in a dirty enviroment such as working with mdf, the dust kills them. replace the o-rings once a year as well.
