The Freeman PF1618GLCN Pneumatic 3-in-1 16-Gauge and 18-Gauge 2 in. Flooring Nailer provides DIYers and professional contractors with a solution that takes the guess work out of what flooring nailer to buy. For the installation of more common tongue and groove hardwood flooring, such as 5/8 in. to 3/4 in. oak, maple, and hickory, the 16-Gauge T or L cleat is ideal. If you're installing 3/8 in. to 3/4 in. engineered or solid tongue and groove flooring, including bamboo, stranded bamboo, carbonized bamboo, or exotic hardwoods, the 18-Gauge L-cleat is your fastener. The anodized aluminum magazine allows you to load 16 or 18-Gauge T or L cleats ranging in sizes from 1-1/4 in. to 2 in. without making any adjustments. The 1-piece drive blade is made of hardened steel, with a rugged and lightweight aluminum cylinder. The body of the nailer is constructed of durable die cast aluminum to stand up to daily use. Featuring 3 interchangeable base plates, this flooring nailer provides stability and protects finished surfaces from damage. Height adjustment of the base plates allows you to precisely line up with your nailing area. The Pneumatic 3-in-1 16-Gauge and 18-Gauge 2 in. Flooring Nailer also includes a long reach fiberglass mallet with a padded grip and rubber head, air tool oil, and adjustment wrenches, and is covered by Freeman's 7-year Limited Warranty and 90-day Wearable Parts Warranty.

Bought this nailer in anticipation of installing 1200 square feet of hardwood flooring. It lasted for approximately 12 hours and will now not nail. Nice while it lasted. But sure didn’t last long. Now we will find out how well the company stands behind their product. Unfortunately we now have to rent a nailer to get this floor completed. I’m sure Home Depot will tell us to call the manufacturer although we ordered this only three months ago and just started to use it two days ago.

very good product. works exactly as described. a previous reviewer is correct - you have to be careful and take your time with the alignment. i'm laying 1400 sq ft of 1/2" bamboo (half way done) and i've messed up 2 boards by trying to hurry and not lining up the nailer correctly. when used (and lined up) correctly, it works great! simple little hit with the mallet gives consistent results. i have my compressor set at 75 lbs, which seems about right for the flooring i have (strand bamboo, very hard). when down to last few nails, RELOAD rather than let it run out.

Very hard to use on 1/2 inch bamboo. If not held and checked to be allied in the grove causes damage to the flooring. I have to use my hand on the plate on top of the floor to make sure it is allied before I hit it with the hammer.

The Only Flooring Nailer You'll Ever Need !!!
This flooring nailer is designed to use both 18-Gauge, and 16-Gauge L cleats. As a result, this flooring nailer will handle any type of flooring out there.
Flooring nailers are designed to install flooring using either staples, or L-Cleat's.
Using L-Cleats in the installation of flooring is far superior to staples, and as such, these type of nailers will generally cost more.
The advantages of this flooring nailer are numerous.
1. With this nailer being pneumatic, there’s no worrying about soft hitting the plunger and partially driving in a cleat.
Every blow to the plunger provides a consistent force to the cleat being driven.
2. The ability to accommodate both 18-Gauge and 16-Gauge L cleats from 1-1/4 in. to 2 in. lengths, from most manufactures.
3. Semi-Quick release nose to clear jams.
4. 3 interchangeable base plates to provide the correct height for flooring thickness, and provide no-mar protection on pre-finished flooring.
5. 16-Gauge L cleats to install common hardwoods, and 18-Gauge L cleats for engineered, or exotic hardwoods such as bamboo.
6. Out of the box, fully assembled and includes a fiberglass / rubber mallet and bottle of lubricating oil.
7. 7-year unmatched, industry leading warranty.
Several years ago, I rented a standard, manual flooring nailer for a bedroom. When I had the opportunity to use this flooring nailer, the difference is so vast, it’s amazing.
You literally need no effort using this flooring nailer, it just works, each and every time!
I replaced a carpeted bedroom floor with bamboo. I experienced no jams whatsoever. Each L cleat driven was set at the same depth for the entire floor.
Using this flooring nailer was actually the fun, and quick part of installing this flooring.
The only cumbersome part using this flooring nailer is having to use an air compressor. I’ve never minded lugging my compressor into the house previously, but even with its built-in handle, it weighs around 60 pounds.
Having the pneumatic advantage of every L cleat being driven into the flooring at the same depth every time, more than makes up for lugging a compressor and hoses around.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied, and very happy to be using this flooring nailer.
After using it, I can definitely tell you that this flooring nailer is levels above all others due to its high quality construction, complete, adaptable flooring solution using two different gauge L cleats, interchangeable sole plates, and all backed by Freeman’s 7-Year Warranty.
I absolutely love this flooring nailer, and Highly Recommend that you seriously consider this flooring nailer for your next flooring project.
