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 install whole house AV systems and have used a lot of different staplers in my time (manual and electric). 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!

          On my 4th one in 2 years. Always use authentic arrow staples and gun constantly jams or breaks. 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.

                      This is an excellent tool for a variety of construction jobs. We use it for stapling house wrap over insulation or soft surfaces. You can drive lots of fasteners without fatigue in your hand or wrist. This is the first time we have used this model but I am a customer for life. 1024

                          I have owned the 5700 for a number of years, but only use it about ten times a year. 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?

                                  I've had this one for about 2 years, used it maybe 3-4 times since I've had it. 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.

                                      I own an older model T-75 Arrow Stapler, for which it is becoming increasingly hard to find staples for purchase. I decided to purchase this new PowerShot 5700, and am glad I did. It is easy to sue, and being able to "lean"into the stapler instead of having to squeeze the handle like on the old model makes it easy to drive staples without the resulting hand-aches of the older model. I recommend this stapler to anyone who has a need for a relatively inexpensive tool that does the job.

                                              I have used the standard stapler for 30 years with no complaints, but after using this one I wish I'd had this one years ago. After adjusting to the slight difference in where pressure is applied and feel, it was a joy to use. My old stapler left my hand aching after a large project and took most of my hand strength to staple. I may have weaker than usual hands. I limited my staple gun projects due to the exertion required to use the old staple gun, and the effect that had on the precision of my staple placement. This new one is a dream. I don't jerk back after triggering the staple, and after many repetitions my hand doesn't shake straining to depress the trigger.

                                                          The design fits your hand like a glove. The ease of use is remarkable. The power that bunches the staple into the wood is awesome. I have used staple guns for over 45 years and this is the best.

                                                              This is the first Power Shot stapler I have used as I normally have used the basic Arrow in the past. The Power Shot is much easier to staple with and seems to work flawlessly.

I used the new stapler to staple plastic over windows for the winter and it worked great. Much less effort required to staple than the traditional T50 stapler. I didn't need to use it until this fall (2016) when I was stapling insulation in the walls and ceiling which worked great. It started jamming using #504 staples then eventually quit working. Of course, I don't have the receipt so I can't replace it under the warranty.

The handle made it a breeze to shoot the staples into both the oak and pine pallets. Have another Arrow Stapler going on 20 years old and the only reason I didn't use it is because I lost the piece that holds the staples in.

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
