Does what it is supposed to
Used this few times and product does what it is supposed to without any issues. My only problem which is not specific for this particular brand is that I am not able to pin-point where exactly the staple goes through since it is about half an inch below the white plastic nose that you push against. Some sort of guide that shows exactly where it goes through will be helpful.

Bump fire worked great!
Purchased last night to use on luan- worked flawlessly! The bump fire feature was great. Used the 2.0 battery so I’d like to try it with a bigger one, but was really pleased with the depth adjustment and how the tool performed

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
Condition: New Factory Reconditioned

Specs: Same Same

Warranty: 3 Year 1 Year
