Product Description

Product Description

This high-speed, air-powered flooring cleat nailer offers better productivity than non-pneumatic nailers. The tool drives L-shaped 1-1/2- to 2-inch flooring cleats precisely, at a proper angle and depth, every time in 3/4-inch hardwood flooring. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum for job site durability and low weight, the unit also has an extra-wide composite base plate for added stability. The nailer's long-reach handle gives users added comfort and control. This nailer provides 420 in./lbs. of driving power, and has an operating pressure of 60 and 100 psi. It shoots 1-1/2- to 2-inch fasteners, and has a generous 110-fastener magazine capacity to reduce the time you spend reloading. Your purchase also includes a mallet.

I had a difficult time deciding which nailer to buy. Should I get the 2" stapler or one of the many cleat nailers out there? I called my hardwood flooring company (BR-111) and was advise that they do not recomend the flooring stapler as the tongues may break while stapling. I ordered the Bostitch floor cleat nailer to install my solid Brazilian Cherry Hardwood flooring. I found out that Brazilian Cherry is the 4th hardest hardwoods availabe. Brazilian walnut is the hardest. I also found out that Brazilian Cherry is almost double as hard as the hardest american oaks. I received my nailer and started nailing down the floor. I set my compressor at 85 psi and nevet touched it again. I installed almost 700 feet of hardwood and the nailer worked perfect. I love my nailer but have to mention that with its size you have to face nail everything within 8" from the wall as the tool is to wide to actuate the striking mechanism. All-in-all this is the tool to buy if you have any doubts. Buy the nails from home depot as their about $7.00 cheaper that online.

I'm a small volume custom home builder with a crew of five. We install the hardwood flooring on most of our jobs. We have used a manual powernailer for years. Recently I purchased Bostitch's MIIIFN floor nailer and now have moved our manual nailer to the back of the tool bin. Just a light tap is all that is required to fire the nail. In the event the board is slightly bowed feel free to swing away and hammer the board in place. This tool is easy on my carpal tunnel and for those who aren't ambidexterious it's a snap to use with either hand. It does take some time getting used to dragging the air hose around with you, and you definitely need ear protection. But the benefits far outweigh these nuisances.

This tool makes laying a hardwood floor almost fun. If you are laying a prefinished floor, I would also recommend the optional foot (MIIIFOOT). I don't see that this is available on Amazon. I purchased mine on eBay. Also, some of the reviews on this item are for the MIIIFS, which is a floor stapler, not a nailer. According to some sources, there are less problems with the wood splitting with the nailer. There seems to be a hot market for these tools on eBay. I plan to resell mine when I am finished with it.

I was able to install 160 square feet of a 900 square foot flooring job before my nailer broke. Stanley considers this broken part "normal wear", and Amazon will not take back opened merchandise. Just a heads up to contractors who may worry about buying tools online- don't do it. My regular supplier would have given me a new nailer no questions asked.

THIS MACHINE WAS GREAT. THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO WATCH IS THE LEVEL OF THE NAILS, IF THEY GET TOO LOW IT SHOOTS OUT A COUPLE AT A TIME. WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO 5-6 NAILS PUT IN ANOTHER SLEEVE.IT DID THE JOB AND PULLS THE FLOORING TOGETHER . WE DID 1200 FEET OF FLOORING AND THE GUN IS A TIME SAVER. GIVE IT A GENEROUS HIT WITH THE HAMMER AND KEEP THE OIL TO IT.

Being an owner & user of Bostitch air tools for 15+ years, my expectations were high when I ordered this tool. Once again, Bostitch has not let me down. This tool is great, easy to use and will undoubtly last a long time. I would reccomend purchasing the finished flooring foot if you are going to use this tool on pre-finished flooring.

I love power tools. This is a very nice one. It really cuts down on the effort expended to nail hardwood flooring. Even so , I prefer the manually actuated nailers from porta nailer and power nailer. They seem to be able to get the flooring tighter. You can really slam them hard with those heavy mallets. This is useful especially with bowed boards. Porta nailers even have a rachet mechanism that will not return until the nail is completely driven. So if you have to hit it more than once (not very often), you can. You can go faster with them . They also give you a better work out.

I've only used this to install 5/8" pre-finished flooring. I've not tested this on 1/2" or 3/4" flooring and cannot comment on shim/roller tolerances or stability in usage. Please check some of the other many great reviews for details on specific sizes.

The Good:
--> Everything feels solid. Nothing rattles and nothing feels sloppily put together.
--> The pre-finished floor foot is much wider than the nailer by itself. This facilitates lining up the nailer flat against the edge of the floor board. I'd recommend using it even if you're installing non-finished flooring.
--> The foot also has handy windows on both sides so you can visually check to make sure the nailer is lined up. I found this feature much more helpful than anticipated.
--> Nails are very easy to load and unload. It's also easy to tell when you're down to the last few nails.
--> The handle is very well balanced. You won't wear out your wrists.

The Not-so-Good:
--> The manuals are terrible. The foot manual leaves out the 5/8 size flooring option in the shim chart. They only show how to shim for 1/2" and 3/4" flooring.
--> The nailer manual has completely wrong diagrams and instructions for loading nails. It's as if someone copied and pasted the section from a completely different nail gun and no one in the publishing chain caught the mistake.
--> The rollers only have 2 hole positions which is good for 1/2 or 3/4 but is less than ideal for 5/8. The nailer will rock and it's easy to accidentally slip off the end of the board and nail into the face if you're not careful.
