M12 Caulk/adhesive Gun


I'm curious if anyone has used this and what they think of it. I would mostly be using it on floos with the quart size attachment. We have been doing alot of larger floors lately and it would be nice to speed things up. The other reason is the glue guns we've been getting are garbage! It doesn't seem to matter if we spend three dollars or thirty dollars. Most of them are just breaking as we squeeze them.
The biggest thing holding me back from spending the money is the inevitable "blow out"from the occasional faulty tube. How easy is it going to be to clean?

I have not used one, but have heard people on here talk about them. Dewalt and Ridgid also make them. I can't wrap my head around how a tiny battery will power that thing enough to press out glue at a decent rate.

Been working well for us, but we try to stuff a cheap sandwich bag in case of a blow out in the glue gun. Happens way too often and its a hassle to clean out the plunger

Just got a m18 version, with the long barrel for subfloor. So far so good. Can do an entire floor on what seems like very little battery. A little heavy but hoping it works well in the winter.
