Does this tool work on engineered flooring

Asked by: Martie
This would work well on 3/4 inch engineered wood. 1/2 inch engineered flooring would require an 18 gauge nailer to avoid damaging the tongue.

2-in-1 Pneumatic Flooring Tool - Staples/Nails 1 1/2"-2" is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time saver for an old guy I had to replace a few tongue & groove boards on my porch. In the past I have rented nailers with poor time consuming results. I found this Bostitch nailer which is identical to the Dewalt nailer with the same model #. I have only shot 50 or so nails through it but I can say it makes the job so much easier. I was nailing 5/4 tongue & groove Douglas Fir. I shot the nails with no plastic base plate installed so the nails would go through the top of the tongue. No problems just don't hit too hard. I have a lot of 3/4 Oak flooring to put down this winter. Hopefully the nailer continues to give great results. I have no reason to think it won't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this to install 3/4" oak in my second floor and it worked great. I bought vs rent because for the price, you break even at about 1 week of rental. Super simple tool, just oiled daily and had no problems other than user error for the entire project. If I had to do a floor again, I'd buy this in a heartbeat. FYI, I used the Bostitch pancake compressor with the 3 tools. It supplied enough air overall, but had to run a lot when I really got going on a run. I also used the 2" L-shaped cleats which worked very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great/Tool I purchased this tool to install 3/4 in maple hardwood floors. I used my military discount to buy this tool. Great Price. I like this tool b\c it uses either cleats or staples. I placed a 200 sq ft room and had NO problems with this tool. It worked well with no mis fires and placed 1500 cleats. I oiled it dailt b\f use. I also liked that the tool came with several face plates for differrent types of flooring thickness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bostitch nailer works perfectly I am halfway through finishing the main floor of my home (about 1000 sqaure feet so far) and the nailer has worked perfectly. No jams, no misfires; nothing. It has worked perfectly. I am using the 2 inch nails; not the staples and am having great luck so far. Buy this product with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I purchased this nailer to install solid hickory flooring. Although I had read reports of splintered tongues, I had no trouble using the 2 inch cleats. I experienced one minor jam in thousands of cycles. The issue was easy to resolve and might have been caused by a defective cleat. Generally, this tool provides a very consistent fastener application and does a great job pulling in warps. It is easy to load and no special skill is required o operate it. This is a well made and very robust tool that should hold up over many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful with engineered woods I bought this nailer after much research to install a 1/2" engineered bamboo floor. At first I started with 2" staples as that is what the floor manufacturer recommended, but quickly discovered that staples would not work as none would seat correctly. It was consistent that one side of the staple would either curl, or crumple. I tried adjusting the air regulation but to no avail. I'm not sure if this problem was due to the nailer or because of the density of the engineered bamboo. I switched over to L Cleats and had almost 100% success rate in seating for 800 square feet of flooring and about 2000 cleats. I put in a few drops of the supplied oil after every 8 hours of usage and have not had any issues. You will not be able to use this nailer on the beginning strip against a wall or the last two strips against a wall. So, either be ready to mess with some glue, or look at buying a finishing nailer to take care of those areas. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver The pneumatic nailer has been a great time saver. After nailing the first few rows of hardwood using an air gun nailer, switching to this stapler nailer has made the process much easier. I have to advise hitting the plunger with consistent force to ensure the staples are completely recessed above the tongue of the board. Otherwise it's difficult to remove the 2" staple without damaging the hardwood. Also too much pressure can cause splitting. Overall, we've really enjoyed using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Bought this to lay 3/4" thick oak flooring. My 15 year old son used it without a hitch. He did the nailing while I picked through the wood to lay. I would buy again without a doubt. Easy to load and operate. Oiled it once a day and used 2"cleats. Have the upper floor of our home almost done. They built a real nailgun with this one.
