I have used the same unit for over 5 years for both home and work. I have used product to repair semi-trailer doors and to do other light to medium duty work in the truck; more often temp repair until full repairs could be affected at a shop. At home I have tacked down peeling linoleum flooring in the laundry room, secure thin electronic component wires to baseboards, tack down stencils for paint applications on wooden furniture as well as drywall.

Being able to put my own weight behind the staple allows this to remain lightweight w/o having to sacrifice power. I provide the power, it provides the expulsion. It also, in my mind, allows for greater control and precision in placing the staple precisely where I want it. The guide that allows for raised applications made securing wire easy w/o fear of stapling through to the bare wire and ruining the wires.

I seldom use the brad nail option because I seldom have need of them. However, when the need arises, it is nice to have it available and not have to pound 2-3 dozen brads by hand.

My only ding is the overwhelming size. It is difficult if not impossible at times to use in tight spaces or stapling from odd positions where I cannot get leverage on the unit, in which case the traditional format is better suited.

Used it three times ... out of the box, it would staple only with difficulty; today, it quit working entirely. I squeeze the handle completely without any stapling ... I release the handle and the staple falls out like the bullet out of a cartoon gun. I end up cursing like Yosemite Sam and slammed it to the concrete floor of my garage with all my might ... picture is included below. It is sturdy, no doubt; too bad it won't staple. I'll never own another one...
The Model 8000 was not a gift, and I have not been compensated for writing this review...

      Needed a stapler for insulation. Bought the 5700M. Half-way through the project tool jambs. Took it back and it was replaced. Second one jammed again. Do not buy this tool!

                  When looking for a staple gun, the first thing I looked for was "easy-of-use" on the trigger. This was one of the easiest ones to use, and I like how the packaging allowed you to get a feel for the strength needed to use the stapler.

                      I have been doing home improvement projects for over 30 years. Indoors and Outdoors. You name it I've done it. This is by far the MOST HORRENDOUS tool that I have EVER had the misfortune of owning. It jammed 25 times. 7 of those time I had to take the entire unit apart. If yoy enjoy pain by all means buy this.

                          the power shot heavy duty staple and brad nail gun is one of the better fasteners out there. I recommend it for anyone that has large or small job to do.In my line of work time is money and you don't want to deal with things jamming you up like Your tools.

                              the powershot stapler does not drive the staples consistantly most times it skips and does not eject the staples into the project. when I squeeze the handle it skips. I only purchased about a year ago.

                                  the new design is so much easier for me to use and seems to staple tighter with the new style. Highly recommend this over the silver original t50 stapler for it ease of use.

                                      My husband bought this for me when I was redoing the cushions on our kitchen chairs. I would never have gotten the staples in the pressed board base of the cushion without this power stapler. The soft grip is very comfortable and it is simple to use.

                                              jams if I put other than one chunk of staples in...and even then periodically jams. I love the forward design but it finally broke...if you're curious write and ask...too hard to explain...suffice it to say it is not fixable unless arrow were to send me at least one new internal part.

                                                              This stapler is great for older people who do not have the strength in their hands to operate manual staplers. Tried it on different materials and it has the power to drive the staples fully.

                                                                  This is a super easy tool to use and gives a very strong push when stapling. I recently used Stainless steel staples to repair a boat hoist felt. It worked so well my neighbors on both sides borrowed it to redo their project. One went out and purchased one of their own the following week. My wife uses it for her projects covering cornice boards. Highly recommend this stapler.

Staplers I've used in the past made me fee like is was manually driving the staples. It's easy to load and I love that it takes both staples and brads!

Although we only needed this for 13 stairs, we needed the correct tool for the last part of this project, so after a few minutes of discussion, we decided to purchase this tool. It made the project easy and our hands and shoulders did not ache from trying to push carpet staples into the wooden stairs. Very handy and I'm sure we will use it again.

I dont use it very often but when I do, the handle does not snap back and I have to pull it out for every staple. Must be made cheaper than before, I would not recommend anymore

This is far and away the best manual gun I have ever used - no fatigue factor even after a longish session. I rarely use the electric gun at this point. Well done!

Tried to contact Arrow, can't send a message without a password. Being a woman, I loved this stapler because it was so much easier to use. Too bad it's such a piece of garbage.

I have found it to be easy to use accurately, with minimal fatigue, and with very effective and consistent staple placement. it is my favorite staple gun. But, alas, my 5700 has broken. The blade that contacts the staple has broken. The blade is a small part that is easy to replace, but I cannot find replacement parts. Does arrow offer replacement parts for the Powershot 5700?

Went to use it the other day and it stopped for some reason. I've tried taking it apart to repair and it fell apart even more one me. Unfortunately the warranty is no good any more so all I can say is I bought a piece of junk.
