Not Worth it Cheap design. Flimsey
Let me start with saying CPO Outlets always gets 5 STARS. That being said, Bostich makes a great line of pneumatic tools as well. THIS floor stapler is the exception. This tool is nothing more than 7/32 narrow crown stapler with some peice of added plastic head, attempting to faciltate the application of engineered (ply type) hardwood flooring that is less than 1/2 inch in thickness. Bostich failed at this! The added attachment is flimsey and does not stay in place. It is difficult to set properly, and the thumb screws become loose after 15 or 20 shots. I have gotten to were I can eyebell the shot without reseting the screws. This does add time to the job, but makes it right! You really have to pay attention to the placement of the stapler or you will over shoot the board, that is, the staple will wind up on top of the finished floor rather than on the tongue. A small LED light beneath the mag well would be good. Its hard to see if the safety bars are on the tongue or elsewhere. It does have "little yellow" tabs to assist in placement on either side but, you have to get pretty close to visualize them. Even at the price I paid, I expected better from Bostich. This could be a decent tool if Bostich "Re- engineered" it. If you are a DIY'r, consider renting a better tool like the Powermatic. Or, go with 3/8 inch, or thicker, floor and rent a MIII Bostich 1/2 inch floor stapler with mallet. Some Home Depot's carry and rent them. They are the Boss. Had mine 15 years. Not first rebuild yet. Works ever time i pull it out. In closing, I will remove this Bostich EHF1838K-R 18-Gauge Oil-Free Engineered Floor Stapler, from my inventory after I close out this job. I will look for a better one. Porter Cable,,,if your reading this, its time to step it up and make a better Engineered flooring stapler than this one!!!

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.
