Is predrilling needed for stranded bamboo flooring?

I'm installing solid, 9/16 stranded bamboo flooring over a native red oak subfloor. Will it be necessary to drill pilot holes when using 18ga nails?
Asked by: DIYDave
Thanks floorguy. Too bad the site edited important info from my question. 18ga cleats wont make it thru the surface of stranded bamboo and 16 ga wont penetrate a second layer of oak under the bamboo.

PowerPalm Pneumatic Hardwood Flooring Cleat Nailer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.

It saves an incredible amount of time fastening the first and last few rows of hardwood flooring. Just break apart the L cleats, as it only uses one at a time. I did have to pre-drill holes in Hard Maple 3/4 flooring in order for it penetrate fully but with Oak or any normal hardness flooring that won't not be necessary. You will be surprised at how little/compact this tool is and the angle can be rotated to get to any tight areas. Happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Specialized Palm Nailer Once you get the hang of it and stop bending cleats product provides a quick way of setting single L cleats at hardwood tongues near walls and other areas cleat nail guns can not fit. First time user on 3/4 inch red oak flooring, starting to use it without bending cleats, took about 1/2 hour total time to get it. Follow safety instructions as tool can throw cleat if use improperly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home owner Great little nailer, I had bit of of a learning curve with Air Psi and palm pressure to get the nails to set correctly. But I could of used more practice with it before putting it to work, I used it to nail hard wood flooring along the edge were normaly it would be face nailed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this! All this does is bent the cleats in half. Completely useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little tool Great little tool for hardwood installation. The regular hardwood nailer leaves you several boards away from the wall. This will get you up to the last board for face nailing. We are building our own home (6 years in) and are installing 2,500 sf of hardwood. The only downside is one cleat at a time, but much better than pre-drilling and hand setting. We are about half through our installation and so far so good!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What was I thinking. I bought this for places where my Powernail 50P Flex won't reach. I can't express the frustration I had with this tool. Wood: Hard maple Cleat: 18g Powernail PSI: Avg around 85-90 My Powernail 50P Flex works perfectly. Never had a problem with it. I assumed the Palm Nailer would take some practice, but I mangled about 10 cleats for every one that sank. By the time I was able to get them to sink pretty regularly the tool broke and spewed an oily mist all over my floor and walls. My guess is that it was the slow breaking of the tool (less hammer power) that initiated my successes. I was just starting to like the thing... No idea why it broke. I didn't get a chance to drive enough cleats to cause any ware and tear. I tried various PSI, various speeds, various angles... all seemed equally bad. In the end I feel I had the most consistent success when I just went for it... keeping the shaft over the cleat as best I could. Some have suggesting gently letting the hammer pound it in, but as soon as the hammer touches that cleat it whacks it out of shape. Anyway... people seem to like this... maybe I just got a bad one, because I can't imagine sinking cleats properly with this thing on a regular basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long? Nothing replaces the right tool for the job. I have wasted countless hours hand nailing in hard-to-reach places. Then I purchased this. I use Porta-Nails 2" T-cleats--this nailer had no problems with them whatsoever. I did have to pre-drill my 3/4" aged Hickory planks to prevent bending, but that was not much of an inconvenience. This nailer set the nails perfectly both on angle into the tongue as well as in face nailing. 70-80-pound pressure is all I needed for the tool to set the nails. With the rotating head, I was able to position the nailer to the extent that I could nail through the tongue up to the last row along the wall. Imagine only a single row being face nailed! Careful planning and you might have the face nail under the quarter round trim! Just remember a drop of oil now and then. I also had to smack the tool on occasion to close the air valve (air would leak). Small and light, this tool packs a punch!
