ending Nailer Repair – Replacing the Driver Guide ( Ridgid Part # 79004001022 )

When searching for a tool or machine part at eReplacementParts.com, the product’s model number and type number are always necessary to ensure an accurate part match. Even when a model or type number is only different by one digit, the parts for that model or type may not be compatible with other models and types.

Each manufacturer uses a different model and type number system, and manufacturers often call type numbers by different names. Some type numbers are especially difficult to find on the tool or machine.

This article provides explanations and pictures for finding model numbers and type numbers for several tool and machine brands, making it easier to order the right part for the right tool.

Explanations are listed below alphabetically by brand, but first, some additional information about model numbers and type numbers will be helpful.

Model and Type Numbers

Model numbers distinguish between a manufacturer’s tool models within a certain category (like drill/drivers or nailers). For example, two different power sander designs from the same brand would be distinguished by having two different model numbers. This is true for every brand, that they separate major designs by model number.

However, manufacturers often update the design or features of a tool model and create types of tools with the same model numbers. Most manufacturers distinguish the different types of a tool model from one another by assigning type numbers to them in addition to the tool’s model number.

This is where it gets tricky. Finding type numbers for tools can be difficult because of the following reasons:

  • Type numbers can be very different from brand to brand. Sometimes an entire type number is just one digit or letter, and sometimes type numbers are very long numbers or long combinations of letters and numbers.

  • “Type numbers” go by different names, depending on the manufacturer. Some manufacturers call them type numbers, while sometimes they are called the: engineering number, series number, or bar code number.

  • Some model types are only distinguished by the year of the model.

  • can be very difficult to find, sometimes located on the inside of a tool’s housing (like some Type numbersbe veryto, sometimes located on the inside of a joyride ‘s housing ( like some Ryobi tools ). fortunately, most type numbers are listed on the name plate with the model number .
  • When a manufacturer does not anticipate redesigning a tool or machine model, the first type of that model often does not have a type number assigned to it by the manufacturer. Designs that follow the first type will usually have type number designations.

  • Some manufacturers do not use a type number system at all, and instead change model numbers for each new design. In this case, the model number is the only number needed to match the right parts to the tool or machine.

In general, when searching eReplacementParts.com for the right model number and type number of a tool, the most important idea is just to match all numbers displayed on the webpage (under that tool’s picture and name) with the numbers on the product.

On eReplacementParts.com, type numbers are displayed under the tool picture to the right of the model number. Sometimes type numbers are displayed in parentheses, like “(Type 1)” or “(0601916460)”. Models that are not assigned type numbers will not have a type number displayed on the web page.

However, we will often list “Type 1” or “Type 0” for the first redesign of a tool model in a type series, even if the manufacturer does not list “Type 1” or “Type 0” on the name plate. This makes it easier for our customers and us to tell the first type apart from the rest.

Searching Steps

After identifying the model and type number of the tool, finding the right parts for that tool on eReplacemetParts.com is easy. Here are the steps:

1. Enter the model number in the drop-down search field at the acme left of any page on our locate .

    • This will navigate to a page that displays all types that match the model number entered.

    • If there is only one type for that model, only one option will be displayed.

    • All types that match the model number searched for will be displayed with a separate picture and name each.

    • Different types of the same tool model usually look very similar to each other or identical, so it’s important to  match the type number from there.

2. Match the type number “ ( series act, engineering number, etc. ) to the decline tool name and icon displayed on the page .

    • Clicking the picture or tool name will navigate to the parts page for that tool or machine.


After these general guidelines, the next move to make is to become familiar with the location of model and type numbers for specific tool and machine brands. We explain the location of model and type numbers for several manufacturers below.

It is also important to remember that model and type number systems can vary, even within the same brand name, so the examples and guidelines below for each brand are given in a general sense. However, some manufacturers have very consistent numbering systems within their product lines.
