This dual-purpose tool has a patented two-in-one magazine and driver system that accommodates both cleats and staples. Designed for 15.5- and 16-gauge staples from 1 to 2 inches, and "L" cleats from 1-1/2 to 2 inches, the magazine has a 100 staple/cleat capacity. Loading the fastener is quick and easy--simply pull the magazine back, drop in the fasteners, and release the drawer--it takes less than 10 seconds.
Precise Air-Powered Operation
The Ramsond RMM4 operates with the power of compressed air (60 - 120 PSI) and is equipped with a standard 1/4-inch NPT air inlet for easy compatibility. To use, simply attach your air compressor's hose to the RMM4's air inlet, then rest the nose of the RMM4 squarely against your work surface to fire.
The direction and angle of the staple/cleat will be automatically aligned for precision driving. And with only a slight strike of the mallet upon the actuator, the RMM4 will shoot a cleat nail or staple through your flooring at the proper angle and depth.
Patented Air-Booster Chambers
Most conventional flooring nailers/staplers store compressed air within the body of the tool. Upon mallet strike, the air reserved in the body of the tool is released, driving the blade and shooting the fastener. The RMM4 takes this design one step further. In addition to storing compressed air inside its body, the RMM4 continuously stores compressed air in two patented air acceleration/booster chambers located in the handle.
By storing extra compressed air, these sealed chambers ensure that the fasteners shoot with sufficient force for perfect penetration in the flooring surface. The booster chambers also accommodate quicker retraction of the actuator and blade when compared with conventional units.
Non-Marring Base System
Featuring an adjustable non-marring base system, the RMM4 provides protection against scratches and allows you to drive fasteners fast and close to the wall. The base system is equipped with two composite disks in the front, a middle guide, and a rear nylon-derivative plate. The combination of these three mechanisms ensures that the surface of your hardwood flooring is not marred or damaged during installation. It also provides for tool balance and optimal positioning against the work surface for fast, accurate installation.
Works with Most Thicknesses of Hardwood Flooring
The RMM4 series is suitable for virtually all thickness of hardwood flooring (1/2 inch, 5/8 inch, 3/4 inch, and 25/32 inch). It comes with two nylon composite base plates--simply install the appropriate base plate for your application.
Durable and Comfortable
With over 30,000 units sold in North America, the RMM4 is sure to deliver on its promises. Designed for long-term use, the Ramsond RMM4 is an industrial-strength power tool that's comfortable to use. Its body is constructed of a durable, lightweight die-cast alloy, and its driver blade is constructed of heat-treated hardened steel for long-lasting resilience. For user comfort, the RMM4 has a long-reach handle with a padded cushioned grip that offers increased balance and control.
The RMM4 Two-in-One Hardwood Flooring Stapler and Cleat Nailer is manufactured under strict ISO guidelines for quality control and safety, and it is backed by a one-year warranty.

Have installed alot of 3/4" 2-1/4" plank oak flooring with it so far, have had 1 misfire. Instructions say to not hit it too hard, but I found that it takes a good solid whack to get it to fire completely. Once you do that, it's a breeze. Always seats where it's supposed to, and fires the nails to the right depth. Too light a whack will not sink the nails.
It's really solidly built and balanced really nicely.
One drawback, I wish I could check magazine level without opening it up, but it's not too bad. It makes a hollower sound when you're dry firing.
Update: after approx 50000 cleats gun started leaking air badly, after tear down discovered torn gasket... replaced w/ spare supplied gun did not make it through one strip of cleats before it started leaking badly again disgusted I have not torn it down again but reverted back to my old dependable Bostitch stapler as I suspected this gun will not hold up for long..... A one job throwaway... Chinese junk. I would not recommend at all!
I'm about 120 S.F. into a 750 S.F. project and I couldn't be more pleased.
It hasn't screwed up once, although I have. Too light a hit & the staple didn't go all the way in.
It comes with replacement o-rings and tools. Putting in a solid hardwood floor without a pneumatic nailer would be way too much work. This gun makes it much easier, and the price is right.
I don't have a clue as to whether it would hold up to commercial application. As long as spare parts are available, I suppose it would be great.
UPDATE 2/20/2012: I finished the floor in the house a long time ago, but saw I never finished this review. The gun worked great all the way. I even lent it out to a friend, and he had good luck with it as well.
I installed about 200 sq feet of 3/4" x 2 1/4" red oak flooring and stored the tool in my dry basement for almost a year. I started installing the same material in a 400 sq ft room. It worked well for about 100 sq ft. And then the nailer broke. The pin which holds the staple driver to the piston snapped, and the driver was now free. This part looks identical to the Bostitch part.
Ramsond sells the gun with a package of o-rings, hex wrenches and a stamped steel wrench. Disassembly was not easy, but I was able to get down to the piston/driver assembly. When I tried to take this apart, the aluminum pieces broke. I went to e-bay, emailed Ramsond (actually Padova Imports) and the next day had a reply to call their parts dept. They shipped out a new piston/driver assembly for about $35 with shipping and I had it in less than a week. (I cannot blame them for the gun being out of warranty.) WRONG PART. I'll return it tomorrow and see if I can get the correct part.
While it worked, this flooring gun was great. But mine did not work for long.
There is a difference between a name brand (Bostitch) tool and a Harbor F&S or a Ramsond tool. Quality materials and quality control make a difference. In general, I have not had good luck with the off brand, cheap tools but still buy them in hopes of hitting the jackpot. I guess I never learn.Read more ›
