A: I'm not sure. It surely didn't drive the staples into the hardwood oak flooring we laid down. Had to pull almost every single one. Not work the money whatsoever
A: Yes it should be. I used it to staple 1/2" engineered hardwood into an oak sub floor, and didn't have any issues. Just make sure you maintain the desired air pressure (around 100psi). The only time I had issues was when the compressor was down to 60-70psi without me noticing.
A: It is an 18 gauge nailer. The gun itself is powerful enough to drive into oak but you will need to experiment a little to make sure the nails will go in without buckling. 18 gauge nails tend to wad-up or deflect when they hit something really hard. Depending on the flooring you are installing, you might want to find something that uses cleats instead of staples, or something that uses 15 gauge nails.
A: Acacia is a very hard wood. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations, but I think you will need a floor nailer that uses cleats, especially if it is 1/2 inch or more. I have installed brazilian cherry, which is a little harder than Acacia, and used a full sized flooring nailer and cleats. I had to pre-drill the perimeter nail holes because the 15 gauge finish nailer I used would sometimes split the wood otherwise.
A: The mini flooring nailer is just what the description says it is. It works best with 1/2 inch or less thickness wood. I prefer using it with engineered hardwood flooring. If you are putting down 3/4 inch flooring I would recommend using something like the Husky Pneumatic 3-in-1 15.5 and 16 Gauge 2 in. Flooring Nailer and Stapler with Quick Jam Release (Internet #205665226 Model # HDUFL50 Store SKU #1001186246). I hope this helps.
A: Like all installations, do a test with a scrap sample. Adjust staple depth etc. Many of the engineered floors are “floating” and the planks interlock. These don’t require stapling every course. I stapled every 7th course. A good foil/foam underlayment is highly recommended.
A: i own this product and did about 750SF of engineered floor with it at my home. Also helped my nephew install 1200 SF of the same engineered wood floor. Tool works great, keep it lubricated and make sure to use the proper staples.
A: Joseph, I suggest you check with the manufacture of the flooring material.
A: Yes it will work with 9/16" material. Turn up the air pressure to 100-120psi because bamboo flooring is very hard.
A: The only issue I’ve have using it on bamboo was. The gun would shoot hard enough to chip the coating of the surface of the bamboo. I don’t think it was the fault of the gun. Bamboo is a hard flooring and it worked well with holding it down. I think it was the coating on the bamboo that was the problem.
A: This is a nice little flooring nailer, light weight....I believe you will be fine just make sure you use the staples for it. I think staples and shoot one every 6-8 inches and you’ll be fine. I laid 2200 square foot of engineered hardwood over top of a layer plywood I placed over the subfloor. Used this gun for both.
A: No, this product is not for use with cleats.
A: I purchased this gun to install about 600 sq ' of flooring. By the time I was about 200' into it , the gun started misfiring. Before I finished the gun was only firing on every other staple. I was not very happy w/the gun. I live an hour from the store, so it was too dificult to return.
A: No it only shoots 18 gauge staples.
A: Hello WoodFloor, glad to help answer your question. No. Brad nails & narrow head staples. Glad to have helped & good luck on your project
A: This uses 18ga Narrow Crown Staples and 18ga Brad nails only
