Great stapler. Easily sets staples at proper depth in hardwood, plywood or MDF. Have used this unit on an almost daily basis and has functioned flawlessly with no jams or misfires. As a bonus, I ordered the Class C refurb unit, which is supposed to have some minor scratches or dings. When I got the package, the carrying case looked like it had seen some use. Then I opened the case and to my surprise, the stapler looks brand new, like it had never been used. Overall, very pleased and would recommend this unit to anyone considering a crown stapler. By the way, I also purchased a Hitachi 23 gauge pin nailer and an 18 gauge brad nailer Both of these units were also Class C refurbs and arrived looking like new units. They have also performed perfectly.
Nice Crown Stapler
I'm remodeling my house and needed to lay new 1/2 inch OSB over the existing sub-floor because it was in such bad shape and I was laying new hardwood floors. I decided on a crown stapler and after much research purchased the Hitachi 18-gauge narrow stapler to nail the 1/2 inch OSB. I went through probably 2500 staples without a single jam or mishap, other than when I hit a nail or two in the old sub-floor. The only little problem is you have to keep an eye out when the staples are getting low. There were a few times I got carried away and shot "blanks" without realizing it was empty. Other than that, the stapler worked great. I highly recommend it.
Reliable and nice little tool for the price.
I now have used this tool for small intricate and larger projects with great success. It's easy to swap out different length staples and the quick release nose assembly is wonderful for removing jammed staples although, I haven't experienced a jammed staple with this tool yet after quit a bit of usage. An Allen wrench was needed to undo three screws to access the nose of my old stapler every time a staple jammed which was very time consuming and frustrating. This Hitachi gizmo permits one to clear a jam in seconds.
