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...

      I am going to be using this staple gun next week to hang my targets up. Will see how long this one will last. My last one from a different company broke.

      I purchased this for a small project thinking I would never use it again. However, after it was done, the stapler was so efficient I started trying to come up with more projects to use it on. Code 1024

          This gun worked perfectly for reupholstering dining room chair cushions. It did not jam at all. It was easy to find and purchase the correct size staples. I also liked that the handle was not bare metal. I did not give it 5 stars for ease of use because I struggled a little - but that was due more to my lack of strength than the staple gun itself.

Pressing down this handle automatically puts pressure over the staple helping drive it completely.

So, I bought this gun with the lever pointing forward. She is delighted. Her hand fits. The release pressure is less than my gun so she can now shoot staples with one hand. And, best of all, my staple gun stays where I can find it, since she has her own gun!

The stapler is very easy to use and has plenty of power to drive staples into hardwood frame.
