Incredible machine. Should be a staple part of your tool kit
I had a very big stapling job to do. Underfloor insulation. 36 monster bags of insulation that needed to be stapled to the underfloor of our place. Seemed easy enough...
What makes a huge difference between swaggering and crying into your weetbix for this kind of job is the stapler! I started this monumental "DIY" job with a Trojan stapler I inherited from a friend (a stapler kit from Bunnings). The Trojan wasn't a terrible stapler, but for this job it just couldn't nail it. If there's a bigger job that uses staples I don't know wha...t it is but in the end, I had used roughly ~10,000 staples, 7,000 of which came through the DeWalt. I used the stapler both on the ground (standing) and up on a ladder, at all kinds of angles. Here's why it's so good. 1. It tolerated multiple staple lines in it without failure. The Trojan would only work if you put a single unbroken line of staples in it. It failed nearly every single time you put several lines it it. As soon as it got to the break in staples it jammed. When you're on a ladder and stapling upside down this is enraging. The DeWalt never failed, never jammed once! 2. The method to change staples was clean and crisp, hit a button, the slide rail comes out, you load up the cargo and jam it back home (it's heavy duty so needs to be done with a push). The Trojan had a very lightweight stick with a wing-nut kind of end on it that you unclipped, pulled out and loaded the staples back in. This is absolutely lousy. Multiple times, the wing-nut end caught on my overalls, unclipped and dumped the staples onto the ground. Enraging. 3. The Dewalt is very smooth lined with nothing to catch on. The Trojan has bits that snag on you besides the end bit mentioned in 2. above.
