View Full Version : Question for the tool/construction people out there?

Does anyone know of a company that makes a nail gun specifically for shooting heavy duty horseshoe style nails? I've got a lot of pasture fence to put up and it would go much fast if I had a nail gun that could shoot the horseshow nails into the posts.

Thanks in advance.

SENCO makes a whole line of staplers. One of them could probably suit your needs.

Maybe one of these would work?

Hilti makes some good stuff, might be worth asking them

I would check on galvanized or stainless staples before going that route.

Whats wrong with just using regular nails like a galvanized ringshank. Not a big fan of staples.

Senco is the way to go... we have issues with our Hilti equipment...

I second Paslode products. Love the nail guns I had. Never had any problems with any of them.

Thanks TR for the link to the Paslode stapler...gotta pick this one up soon! :D

Thanks for the feedback, have to admit they are priced a lot higher than I had thought they would be so I will be looking for a place to rent one when I need it or looks like it will be hammer time! At least my forearms will get a great workout for ski season!

When I built my fence i bought a paslode and it was high. When I got done I was glad that I spent the extra coin.

I purchase a lot of high quality used tools on ebay and then sell them back on ebay when I'm finished at almost the same price as the purchase price. It's much cheaper than renting, plus it gives you a lot more flexibility with scheduling.

I have an old Paslode IM200-S16. I purchased it to staple subfloors. Would work and you can find them fairly cheap. You can't get the Paslode staples anymore but you can use other brands. Batteries and fuel are still available. Mine looks brand new and I paid $35 for it but had to by a $19 part for it. I don't think they make the staplers anymore but ICBW.:D


Crap on Ebay the S16 is a grand!
