I wouldn't know, I've never been in there, but if you say so I'll believe.

I see you're in IA. Try lockwood flooring in Des Moines.

Primatech. Hundreds of thousands of feet installed and still going strong. It's not a $200 nailer though.

There's something to say for getting a tool and have it be there for you, doing what it's supposed to do, day in and day out, year in and year out.
I"m like that--working for a living is hard enough, so I want the my focus to be on the job, not on the tools. Show up, work, leave; show up, work leave. no putzing around with tools.

Just stumbled upon this video, it gives a good demonstration of the Primatech P250 with roller base. I would love to see someone try this with the Bostich nailer that I see being used by most installers.

I added the rollers to my 350. Momma pushes me pretty hard now that she's got wheels on her nailer.

Yes the rollers make a big difference. I had a "trak edge" on my original P240 and it would get imbedded with little steel flakes off the cleats and scratch the floor once in a while, if you got a bit lazy and slid the gun. The little extension handle and optional aluminum mallet also make a big difference.
