I used this nailer to install over 700 square feet of 1/2″ engineered hardwood floor. It took over 3,500 18 gauge staples and not a single misfire, jam, or problem. Save yourself a hundred dollars over the costly merchandise that accomplish no more than this one. It has a 7 year warranty. I called the Freeman company before buying. They seemed like good people and are located in Georgia. Purchase with confidence, it is a good product and I am happy to have saved some money and still get my project done with zero problems.
This thing is a workhorse. Information are clear and simple and it works beautifully. After lots of searching, I settled on this nailer to put down our 3/8″ bamboo flooring. I am using Porter Cable 1 1/4″ 18-Gage nails with a Porter Cable compressor set at 90-95 psi with ZERO issues. No split/cracked tongues and no jams. After visiting my local Home Depot and learning it could be 40 a day to rent an 18-20 gage nailer, purchasing this one was a no-brainer.
I have been doing flooring for 12 years. And this tool works great. Nearly using it every day, it lasts and is pretty much the simplest floor runner to work with. The only thing is that you must keep it clean. Keeping the loader clean will prevent misfire and jamming. I let my 1st ones build up and ended purchasing 2 more to replace the old ones. Once I cleaned the old ones from the build up, they worked like new again. I did not have to purchase the new ones after all. Anyways, they work great, and is certainly the best floor runner on the market. Knowingly I have used a lot of other brands. JPB Professional Flooring.
