    Describe Yourself:
    Up to the task
    It’s pretty much just what I expected and I’m happy with the tool. Air inlet is recommended at 3/8 and gets into some flow details I didn’t want to cross check to see if 1/4 would suffice but it rocked the first floor and I think it’ll do more than I will want to. Anyway it seems built to last and that’s what I want from a specialty tool.
    Biggest disappointment is the lack of case or a bag to keep it protected while not in use. Gotta provide that independently

    Good tool
    Great tool. My only complaint is that the reconditioned tool did not come with a 3/4" flooring spacer. It came with 2 x 5/8" spacers. Of course I needed a 3/4" spacer and good luck obtaining one of those in less than a week. Long story short...the 5/8" spacer worked fine on my 3/4" solid oak flooring. Pretty much worked flawlessly.

    Refurb but great
    Used other brands but this is lightest and easiest to use (no safety trigger to hold). Bought this one refurb but you can't tell the difference from the factory original other than saving a lot of money.

    Better deal than I could find on [@]!
    Covering up the staplers paint blemishes with a black Sharpie is kind of a joke.

    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.
