Top Customer Reviews
*The Stanley T250 is nice in the hands but lacks the power to drive 9/16" staples fully into hard pine.
*The Arrow T50 is not as nice as the Stanley and lacks power. It also jams a lot.
*The Arrow T50 R.E.D. is the biggest dissapointment. While is has plenty of power to sink all staples into hard pine it is very poorly made. I tried two of them and both jammmed and miss-fired frequently. I think the spring is too weak to keep good pressure on the staples and they do not advance properly. Also, the handle comes apart very often, which is a real pain. It is also large and cumbersome to use.
*The Duo Fast CS5000 is by far the best of all. It has great power to sink all staples. It feels great in the hand. Has great anti-jam clearing, and is the best made of all of these. It costs about $10 more that the R.E.D. but is well worth the price. I returned all the others and have two of the Duo Fasts now.
There are a couple of niggling little things that I would like to see improved on the Duo-Fast (and I admit they are pretty small...):
1) The spring loader that you remove to insert staples and then re-insert to hold the staples is VERY hard to latch back into place. It takes a lot of putzing to fully insert it that last 1/4 inch so that it will lock in place.
2) The handle that you squeeze to fire the staple must be fully opened in order to load the next staple. And it's a wide opening because the handle is so long. I have to make an extra effort to open the handle more than what is comfortable for me, probably because I don't have big hands.
But I have no regrets buying this Duo-Fast. My old, problem-plaqued, untrusted Arrow is now in the recycle bin.
Today was the first day it wouldn't work. not sure what the problem is,
but after 30years its ok. glad to see it still out there to be purchased.
I'll buy a new one and look in to the problem with mine this weekend.
Only issues Ive had with it, is that other contractors seem to have the arrow brand staplers
and when you need staples in a pinch they're not there.
Go to salco at stapleheadquarter dot com
They sell staples for a buck or two a box for 5000.
they also are one of the few places for a good variety of sizes
I am glad I chose the latter.
I used it to staple a screen cloth to my wall for my projector and the tool had no problem stapling through my wood and plaster wall.
It is also very easy to clean and to maintain.
The construction quality feels like this thing is indestructible.
This stapler seems to be made pretty well. The spring mechanism in the loader puts a lot of pressure on the staples so they advance properly, which was the problem with my old wide crown Craftsman staple gun.
