Yes, this flooring nailer is air powered. Typically a 3- 6 gallon air compressor from your local Home Depot will be sufficient. Let us know if you have any further questions!

Yes, it does require an air compressor. I don't think there are any manual ones anymore (like my dad used in the mid-1960's).

Answer: 
Yes it will; you need to set the compressor pressure to ensure the nail goes through the tongue of the flooring piece enough to be flush and not interfere with the groove of the next piece of flooring.

Certainly refer to your flooring manufacturers instructions for recommended installation to stay within warranty compliance before installing. If this is common Teak wood flooring, I would say you would be fine with the SFL618, using either 16ga cleats or 15.5ga staples. If the flooring surface is pre-finished, you may consider a slight upgrade to a model that is safe for pre-finished flooring, with a no Read More
Certainly refer to your flooring manufacturers instructions for recommended installation to stay within warranty compliance before installing. If this is common Teak wood flooring, I would say you would be fine with the SFL618, using either 16ga cleats or 15.5ga staples. If the flooring surface is pre-finished, you may consider a slight upgrade to a model that is safe for pre-finished flooring, with a no mar base, such as the P50LSLW, or PDX50C, so if the nailer happens to slip onto the surface, it wont scratch the prefinished surface. If the Teak is of a more dense variety, like Brazilian Teak, you will likely need an 18ga flooring nailer like the PF18GLCN, so the thinner cleat will penetrate the flooring and not damage the tongue.

Answer: 
Yes. I used it to install 3/4 in. red oak. Fortunately, the nailer comes with the 3/4 in. plate attached. So, I am sure it will work for maple. I used about 7,000 nails to install 800 sq. ft.. the width of the board was 2 1/4 in. If you are using a wider plank...you will use fewer nails.

Answer: 
The installation guide that came with your flooring would be the best place to check that information. Typically, 2-4 cleats per square foot of flooring but that also depends on the width of the boards. This nailer can drive 16 gauge cleats. So, you will also want to check that the recommended size of the cleat is a 16 gauge for the Maple flooring.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 263 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Product for a DIYer I purchased the Numax Model SFL618 for installing my Bruce 3/4" x 3 1/2" hardwood floor in my home. I used 2" L-Cleat nails on my job. This unit is very sturdy, easy to use right out of the box, and made the job easy to complete. As a DIYer, I suggest a few things if you are new to doing flooring installations. (1) Take a scrap piece of hardwood and find a place on your subflooring to try out this unit. This will get you comfortable with using the nailer, and also help you to determine the right pressure setting for your compressor. Too little pressure, the nail won't drive through, too much, and you can split the tongue of the wood piece. (2) This nailer won't help with the perimeter of the room if the nailer butts up against a wall. You should have a brad nail-gun to go directly through the finished wood surface, then use wood filler to cover the nail head. Do practice nailing with this gun also; you may find you need more or less pressure from the compressor. August 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Saved by the store This product came without the mallet then it broke very quickly. The store manager made it better and when I went to the store they replaced item with a huge upgrade. I felt guilty about taking it and tried to find alternatives that would work but in the end they kind of made me take the giant upgrade. I feel as though I have to use this location for all of my hardware needs now. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good nail gun I bought the nail gun to put a hardwood floor in my bedroom and it worked great, I shot 1500 nails without a hitch. You can't beat it for the price. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great nailer for the cost I had considered renting a flooring nailer but for the cost of this nailer, I do not have to worry about returning it, or how long I use it. I've put down about 100 sq ft and have had no issues with it so far. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spot on right out of the box I work slow, so renting a flooring nailer was not a good option for me. Buying one is expensive, but it doesn't have to break the bank. This nailer had many good reviews, and I will add one more to the pile. I bought this nailer online, and it was delivered to my door in a week, maybe less. I attached the handle, gave it a bit of oil, air pressure at 90 psi and some L cleats. The first trial shots were perfect. In fact, every cleat I fired was perfect. Except for the one that I didn't hammer hard enough. The air drives the nails, but you need to give a good whack. It drives the nailer down, pushes the piece you're nailing into its mate and counteracts the nail driving force. This is a tough toool....no need to be gentle. December 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product I installed hardwood floors in a huge room and this tool made it so easy!! Everything you could need is included which is great for a single mom who doesn't have a lot tools... Only attritional thing you will have to purchase is the staples. May 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Let down I bought this for 700 square feet of oak hardwood flooring. So it worked great for about 500 square feet. Then it acted like it had a nail jam, but it just quite working. It was a big let down. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for the money Product came on time, was very simple to assemble, and worked very well. A great value vs renting a similar item. Will pay back in just a few days and then can be used for future jobs. Just remember to either buy an air hose or get it with the compressor. I used a 10 gallon compressor with this tool at 100PSI. That was overkill for a realistic installation pace. A 5 gallon would have been sufficient. August 4, 2015
