Been kinda lazy shoveling snow this winter. Luckily  I have a rotary hammer. About 10cm of compacted snow and 15cm of ice under it at the worst spots.

I used the m12 stapler yesterday and today. We were insulating a new house build. It was excellent. The runtime will last all or almost all day on one 1.5 amp/hr battery.  Used one battery plus half of another in two days of heavy use. I had zero jams. Where it really shined was when we needed to insulate some harder to access places like in certain parts of the roof and a framed area above a fireplace hiding the exhaust. With no air hose I could navigate the trusses to get where I needed. When we did the fireplace one guy climbed into the framed area to insulate with the stapler while I cut the pieces. I left the stapler with the guys for the week to try out. I will be gone from work a few days. They seemed excited to use it. I wouldn't be surprised if work buys one. I told them the price and I think they all said something along the lines of "thats not bad". I also told them what it would be to replace our Senco pneumatic with a brand new Senco pneumatic and the m12 kit was around half the price of the Senco which didn't even come with a hose coupler. $300 for Senco and $150 for m12 kit.

 

As good as the m12 is, it could still use a few improvements. A light isn't essential but would be nice. I wish it used a different kind of dryfire lock out system. It can be annoying at times because it can be hard to press the nose enough to allow it to fire in tight spaces. It also needs to fire a bit faster. It just can't compete speed wise with our Senco pneumatic staplers. I don't think double the rate of fire is too much to ask for.

Beautiful, love the floating deck. Also love the table trim, simple and really elegant.
