Because the storage case is designed to be light weight, it is not as tough as I would like, but everything fits nicely into the storage case and there is room for plenty of nails and staples. The cord is long enough for most jobs. The tool fits nicely in the hand. It works great. We haven't had any problems with it.
There is one negative to this tool. No where on this tool is there information about the sizes of staples it can use. It just says it takes T50 staples. This means if you lose the instructions, and forget what sizes to use, you will simply have to guess. Another tool we looked at buying had this information printed right on the tool. However, it didn't come with a storage case, and wasn't as well built.
As a nailer that accepts only 5/8" brad nails, it is not that useful. There is a nail set attachment (ETF50XP) which I don't have that you can get for this tool that makes it more useful as a nailer.Read more ›
When I called Arrow, I thought they would send out a replacement part and I'd be on my way again fairly quickly. Instead, they told me to contact the seller. I did, and Amazon very quickly sent me an RMA and mailing label. I'm returning the tool and am not going to replace it.
I bought this staple gun for my wife to use when installing insulation as part of a whole house renovation. Her hand isn't strong enough to use a manual stapler for very long. It also works well for chair upholstering and similar chores.
- It's sufficiently powerful to drive 9/16" staples into hardwood.
- No misfires, jams, double-staples, etc.; after firing many thousands of staples.
- Sufficiently light, well balanced, and a nice handle, to use all day with comfort.
- You can staple to the edge of the tool, since nothing protrudes beyond the "muzzle".
- The staple magazine and the locking slide is all steel. It works easily every time, and it's intuitive.
- The 10' cord results in no extension cord most of the time.
- A parts list is provided, with reasonable prices.
- The blow-molded case actually works pretty well, and protects the tool when carrying or storing. There's some room for spare staples or nails, but not much.
- Takes 6 sizes of T50 staples (1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", 9/16", 17/32").
- It's electric with a 100% duty cycle, which means it can used it all day with no breaks. Also, no air-compressor (and hose) is needed.
- It fires BN1810 nails (5/8" 18 gauge brad nails), but since I own two air-pin-nailers, we have no need for another pin nailer.
- The trigger lock is located where your right thumb goes, if right-handed. As a result, it's easy to mistakenly set the trigger lock.
- The electric cord is plastic and very stiff, especially in cold weather.Read more ›
1. The gun jammed very frequently, particularly when new. Some WD40 and wear eventually helped, but I'd still get a jam about every other stick of staples.
2. To clear a jam required a screwdriver, wrench or nutdriver, and often a pliers. You have to remove a small bolt and nut - why they couldn't have just threaded the slide I have no idea. So don't try it up on a ladder or such where you can drop those pieces and lose them.
3. You can't see how many staples are left in the gun. A simple window in the side of the magazine would be great. A real PITA when going working on a ladder, holding something above your head and ... damn, out of staples.
4. To add staples you have to completely remove the slide mechanism from the machine, find someplace to put it, then slide the staples in. Note point above - if there are two many staples left in the machine (which you can't see), you won't be able to close the slide and will have to remove some.
5. It frequently overdrove 3/8" staples when hanging insulation. Punched them right through the paper. No reason or pattern apparent and no adjustment possible.
6. It outright died after hanging only about 300 ft^2 of insulation. Just stopped working. And I was glad to see it go so I could return the carcass and get something better.
I replaced this with the Powershot Pro from Home Depot for about $15 less. It is much better on all of the above counts - well, can't comment on longevity yet, it's done about 300 ft^2 so far also. Only 1 jam in that time - popped the slide with one hand, and it cleared.
