Great Product !!
I use it where a stapler is required.

The only way it could be better is if it could handle heavier gage staples.

It is many times better than the standard manual
Bostick or Arrow staplers!

cordless stapler, drives staples flush
Finally a cordless stapler that drives staples flush. I found the Arrow T50 staples to not be as strong as the Stanley SharpShooter staples. Only problem is in finding staples longer than 9/16". I had to order 7/8" staples from Makita parts service center in Los Angeles. Note that 3/8" crown staples from Senco do not fit this stapler.

Very good with T50 staples
I find it very useful for anything requiring lots of T50 staples. It shines with them. With the T50s, it will shoot the 9/16s all day, straight into pressure treated wood. That's adequate for 14 gauge wire. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not give a full fastener compatibility listing. I've managed to get it to shoot 3/8 crown 3/4 leg staples by loading them one at a time, which is a nuisance. But it does drive them completely into the wood.

It's easy to use, hasn't jammed on me yet and is frugal on battery charge. Most electric staplers are underpowered. This one has more than enough juice to get the job done. Aside from my one minor complaint, I'm satisfied with it.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
