Top critical review
The FLN200 works unless you ever need to remove one.
on February 1, 2016
Do NOT buy these. We are installing 2.25 inch white oak flooring as I type this and if we miss ever so slightly on the flooring nailer, the nail will stick out. Why is this a Bostitch problem? Unlike the nails used in the original '51 construction, these are VERY malleable and have a very easy snap off point. This means ripping out a single nail is next to impossible because it bends easily like a staple.
I thought all of the positive reviews were accurate and I'm sure they are if you never make a mistake. If the nail head adjusts or the alignment of the shaft is off, these are a nightmare to work with.
We have worked with one Amazon FLN200 and the same purchased from Lowes and I'll do everything possible to find a stronger product next time.
