Staples Well

Mike Hart, amazon.com
23 January 2012
  • Summary: The stapler is stronger than my wrists and fingers and it's easier to use than a corded or hose-connected model. It does a good job. Overall, I give 3 1/2 stars. I'm glad I bought it. My only complaint is that it's a little heavy with the battery onboard. I'd like it better if I could (optionally) connect the stapler via a wire to the battery that could be hooked on my belt. That way I'd have ease of mobility and a much lighter stapler in my hand.

Amazing Tool

  • Summary: This tool/stapler is a great addition to add to your Makita 18 Volt Tool Kit. I was amazed at all the power it has to sink your fasteners into the wood. No half sunk staplers to contend with using this well build tool!!

very nice tool

  • Summary: Very nice tool. So much faster and easer than hand staplers. Drives staples all the way in unlike some others. My only complaint would be it only takes stables and nothing else. I've seen other staplers take brad nail and staples.

Makita LXT stapler

Matt "Contractor", amazon.com
30 January 2010
  • Summary: This tool is a nice addition to your LXT line if you have a lot of insulation to staple We use it for acoustic interior insulation in interior framed walls, seems to work better than hammer staplers. However not valuable for roof felt due to the fact that it is not sequential firing, like the machine gun pheumatics we use. We were hoping for this but only single bump fire.
