One thing I will add that the other reviewers did not mention is that this stapler packs a heck of a wallop. The power of this lightweight unit really amazed me.

The truth is, I did not know what to expect. I have never owned an air-powered stapler or nail gun. I planned to use this Hitachi stapler to put up kraft-faced insulation, and then later use it for trim work. Yeah, right. I loaded it with 0.50" staples. They went right through the paper tabs on the insulation and kept on going into the studs. I had to look hard to find them because they had been sunk so deeply.

I turned the air pressure down to 70 PSI, which is the minimum operating pressure and set the stapler's depth adjustment to minimum. No dice. Too powerful! I went back to using my Arrow T-50 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Special.

I decided to get to know this little monster better. So I ran a test to see what it could do. I loaded it with 1.50" Senco staples and fastened a piece of 7/16" Oriented Strand Board (OSB) to some wall studs in about five seconds. Extremely impressive! I showed my science project to my wife.

She said, "Very nice. Now take it down. It looks terrible stuck up there."

I tried to pull the test piece off the wall with my bare hands, but it would not budge. Then I tried to pull it off with a 22 oz. framing hammer. That didn't work either. Finally, I had to use a 3-foot long pry bar. Geez, talk about embarrassing.

My last futile effort involved trying to recycle the test piece of OSB by attempting to extract the 1.5" staples I had shot into it. I won't tell you what happened except to say the OSB went into my woodstove, staples and all.

Here is a tip: Whatever you staple with this Hitachi stapler is forever.

I've used many brands of nail guns with various prices and qualities. The Hitachi Narrow Crown Finish Stapler definitely one of the best considering the low price. Light, and easy to use, it also has a switch for single shot or bump action which is wonderful. Most homeowner will feel much comfortable with single shot and able to check how many staple left with exposed rail. With a short practice, most people can gain most of the control of this staple and use it with ease. It has no problem driving 1 1/2 into wood and I felt it doesn't use much of air pressure as my compressor stay quiet longer than some other nail guns with similar capability.

The only thing I don't like is the kit does not come with sample staples and lubricant. It is not that I don't have them at home but it means the case does not design with designated places for those. minus one star for that.

First let me say, I own almost a dozen Hitachi tools. I love them, never a problem.
It arrived,opened the box , 3 drops oil fired off 6 staples, perfect. It jammed......I saw the ribbon spring holding magazine shut popped off. I re hooked it up, and it popped again.

I know this one gets insanely good reviews but, I did find quite a few people online, who had this happen. I don't like the ribbon design.
I have 4 other Hitachi guns and wanted to make my stapler Hitachi....I am sad.

I give 10 stars for the speedy handling of my problem and a extremely fast refund by amazon. Nobody does customer service better.

I'm a professional residential contractor and my tools get a lot of use. I have a Hitachi framing nailer and also their finish nailer, both of which are about 8 years old. I love those nailers and they still work perfectly to this day. (I'm good about oiling them regularly.) I looked at quite a few staplers to replace the Ridgid stapler that I shouldn't have purchased now that Homer owns them. So many others just have way to many plastic parts, and different brands look so similar that I can't help but wonder how many parts are shared and/or how many companies are REALLY manufacturing the things. (Only 1??)

All of that said, this Hitachi stands out from the crowd. The magnesium body is very lightweight, the staple rail is made of metal, it's comfortable to grip and use, it's not terribly loud, ... It's great.

It does fall short of perfect though. My one complaint so far is the depth adjustment knob/wheel. It's placement and function are fine, but it's unfortunately made of plastic and the indents in it aren't deep enough. The first time I tried to adjust it, with clean, dry hands, my fingers were just sliding across it without the thing even turning. I had to use my fingernail the catch the indents. It's not a big enough issue for me to deduct a star though, I'll just take it apart and burn deeper grooves in it or something... All in all, I love this thing.

I'm remodeling my house and needed to lay new 1/2 inch OSB over the existing sub-floor because it was in such bad shape and I was laying new hardwood floors. I decided on a crown stapler and after much research purchased the Hitachi 18-gauge narrow stapler to nail the 1/2 inch OSB. I went through probably 2500 staples without a single jam or mishap, other than when I hit a nail or two in the old sub-floor. The only little problem is you have to keep an eye out when the staples are getting low. There were a few times I got carried away and shot "blanks" without realizing it was empty. Other than that, the stapler worked great. I highly recommend it.
