Answer: 
The important thing is the air pressure that the compressor is able to maintain. The minimum working pressure, I think, is 90 psi while the maximum is around 150 psi. The tool description will provide specific details. If your compressor is low volume but can get up to say 100 psi then you should be able to use the tool but you may need to let the compressor catch up sometimes.

Answer: 
Being a large body nailer, the larger the compressor tank, the less frequently it will run to keep enough air pressure to continue firing without having to stop and wait. I would recommend a minimum of a 3 gallon tank.

Answer: 
This tool comes with an optional foot to allow for nailing flooring thinner than 3/4" however I do not know if it is for 3/8" 1/2" or 5/8. Nominally a foot could be made or ordered to accommodate any thickness.

Answer: 
Hi Chris, You will want to check out an pneumatic nailer. The instructions state this nailer is for 5/8" & 3/4" floors. Comes from the factory preset to 3/4".
The 1/2" crown staples their talking about in the instructions is the width of the staple. The length is a minimum of 1 1/2" and a maximum of 2". Hope this helps you some.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freeman 3 in 1 Model PDX50C Pro Got it for 3500 ft2 of 3/4" prefinished red oak. Using L cleats after about 1000 ft2 down everything is good. Meets expectations so far. I would recommend this product for L cleats. Have not used it with T cleats or staples. Had 2 jamb ups which I attribute to my action not the tools design. Took about 10 minutes to clear the first jamb and about 3 minutes to clear the second one. Have not had any jambs since the first day with the tool. Worked without any issues right out of the box setting L cleats on the money. September 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor preformance This nailer kept jamming after about a third of a small room July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3-in-1 Flooring Air Nailer and Stapler with Fiberglass Mallet Cost effective tool as an alternative to renting at $40 per day or paying twice the cost for some tools. We did have some cases of the tool getting jammed with a nail. I think this can be minimized by reloading the nails before they run out. If the gun gets jammed, use a flashlight to peer into the nail holder to try to locate and remove the nail. Be persistent. If the pressure is too low that may also cause a jam so don't try to run the tool until minimum compressor pressure is reached. The foot shape could be better due to the ease of mistakenly getting it indexed wrong on the flooring with the result that the nail enters the top of the flooring rather than the tongue. One needs to pay attention while nailing to avoid this problem As with most pneumatic floor nailers, you cannot fit the tool too close to the wall. The limit was about 4 to 5 2.25" wide boards from the wall. All in all a good tool of good quality and ease of use. I made the purchase so that I did not need to align my work schedule with the tool rental hours and to ultimately save rental cost. This tool does not come with a trigger to control the release of the nail so that may be a safety concern. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality tool at affordable price Quality tool. Installing about 1500 sq ft of hardwood floors in the house and this tool has made the job go much faster and been a life saver to my knees! May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent cost effective purchase I bought this flooring nailer because I wanted to install my own hardwood floors. I read the reviews that others had posted, and they were very helpful. This is my first hardwood floor install. I am retired and work at my own pace, so rental was not a feasible option. The cost of this nailer has more than paid for the expense of renting one. It works very well, just had a little issue getting the adjustment of the foot plates correct (my flooring is 5/8"). Occasionally if you don seat it properly on the groove, the striker will mar the wood. Yes I recommend this for a DIYer. March 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great nailer absolutly no issues Really easy to use. Always suggest giving it a real hit with the mallet which helps bring the wood together. Installed ~350sq ft solid wood flooring with no jams. Had a couple staples that did not go in all the way because I did not strike the actuator square. I was installing 2 1/4 slats so I went thru ~5000 staples. With proper pressure from the tank and good hit with mallet, no issues. May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by They nailed it with this tool If you have a number of L-cleats, T-cleats, or staples to drive, then tool will save you time, and save you strain on your back. Whilst not as compact as some models I have used, the tool feels well balanced and is easy to position. Given its size, I found it to be very lightweight, lighter than the last tool I rented. To load, you just swing open the side arm. Clearing jams is simple (the jams I had were of a result of hitting a hidden nail and not the tool itself). The included fiberglass mallet provide nice positive feedback, its lightweight makes using it on larger jobs less tiring, and I never once experienced a soft strike. The tool is supplied with both 1/2 in. and 3/4 in foot plates, and even the allen wrenches needed to change them. They also provide safety goggles and a small bottle of air tool oil. Renting tools is a real pain. You are always a little leery the tool was cared for by its previous renters. Will you have enough time to complete the job without rushing. Will you have time to return it to the rental shop before they close. Why rent when you can buy? September 16, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for Brazilian Cherry Nail gun with 2" staples jammed many times. Got a Bostitch nail gun for 2" staples and never jammed once January 6, 2016
