Dan, There are a lot of variables here. I usually figure 600 sq ft a day after the prep is done. Obviously hallways, baths and most kitchens go slower and open areas go quicker. Substrates matter too, going over concrete takes longer than over wood unless it's a gluedown and I won't touch that with a 10 ft. pole although it is quite popular nowdays.

I would have to say that that is a bit above average. :cheesygri

Completely depends on the product.

Hey tetor 600 ft. is pretty good. I think we only average 250 - 300 a day, of course we only do it a few times a year. Floorcraft, I mean an average I know it totally depends on the project.

I would say 300-450 is acceptable for a 3/4 naildown.

I can put in 400 to 500 in a day but I am a bull. I do not do it everyday either,so I would imagine a bull that is an expert could do 600 ft.
