Disappointing
1 Star Review   By COCHARLI on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2013   

Bought to use for installing insulation between studs. Jams easily, staples do not penetrate pine studs and sit flush with surface about half the time. Head broke off after grand total of two hours use. Wasn't worth my time to take back to store, just gave it to the recyclers.

Poor stapler
1 Star Review   By Chris93555 on Home Depot - May 27, 2010   

This thing is worse then a hand pump one, tried to staple paper to wood and the staples would barely go though. I took it back after about an hour of using it.

Don't bother
1 Star Review   By newscutter on Home Depot - Sep 3, 2009   

"heavy duty" is a joke. I bought one of these a few years ago and used it sporadically. The brads never NEVER go deep enough. Staples will penetrate, but you need to really push the stapler into the material to prevent kickback. Stapler died WAY too soon for the light amount of use I got out of it, and considering it was about $50 new. I'm going pneumatic. You should too.

Works "good"
3 Star Review   By mankaw on Home Depot - May 8, 2009   

I bought one of these to recover 18 restaurant booth seats. Best I can tell, you have to hold the staple gun straight and press it against the wood firmly to work. Out of about 1200 staples, I would say about 40 went only 3/4 of the way in. I like the gun, the way it feels, and how fast and easy it is to use. I'm convinced that there is some requirement of technique to using it. I do think I would buy it again. The last time I did this, I used a hand powered staple and got several blisters after 1000 staples. Certainly better than that.

Total waste of money
1 Star Review   By TexanLew on Home Depot - Mar 9, 2009   

Will not even nail thru 1/4" plywood. The "brad nails" that it uses are no more than flimsy pieces of wire. I tested it on a roll of toilet paper and the nail only went in half way.

paper stapler
1 Star Review   By jocko on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2008   

I bought one but I'm taking it back tomorrow. Barely enough power to staple paper much less into any wood

Over-Rated
2 Star Review     

Strengths: Good power for most work. Drives staples and brads.

Weakness: Cord is stiff. Will jamb occasionally and shoot two brads with one trigger pull. Should have more power for driving brads.

Cord lacks flexibility, tends to get caught on other tools or items in the work area, as it is stiff enough to retain bends from storage. Extra difficult issue in cold weather. While driving brads, this gun would jamb frequently, and often drive two brads with one trigger pull. More power for both long staples and brads would be good. Arrow should consider that all trim work or piece work does not necessarily use a soft wood. The case is nice, but not very roomy. It is difficult to store the gun and the cord, if the cord is wrapped. There is little room to store staples. Heavier channel and othe components would improve this gun's durability.
