Some of us use MAX tools. There is an "identical" manufacturer out that is made in Korea.

Our vendor let us use the stapler. It is a reasonable comparison.

We ran this gun for a couple months. We typically install 1 3/4" X 7/16" 16 gauge staples.

The compressor regulator is set at 130 PSI with around 200-300 ft. hose to the gun.

This gun was ok. It is not as nice as the MAX.
It left fasteners proud at times, even when we backed the nose tip to 0. At 0 we then had firing issues being the safety depress portion wouldn't always engage.

I like that it's Korean, particularly when Taiwan gets invaded and we have tool shortages.

But overall, just a basic gun.

Buy the charger and two batteries ($200), get a tool for free ($129).

I went in for the sander, nice young lady asked if I knew about the promotion, I said no and she hooked me up.

She also wanted to get an opinion on a possible new Milwaukee product.

Would you guys buy a packout that was an M18 portable refrigerator?

I told her I would probably not, there are some guys that would if it works right.

Mini survey, anyone on-board for an M18 mini fridge?

Been thinking about this Makita 36v cooler. I would consider a packout fridge.

I haven't gone red, so maybe that influences my opinion. I work out of a van. It has a couple of cigarette lighter plugs, and I use those for gizmos like that. Don't think I'd want to haul my fridge up onto the top plate anyway.

Nobody seems to care/doesn't know...

Almost went for an M18 stapler but going with the DeWalt instead entirely for this reason.

At least go with a company that's from a country that's a friendly ally of the US. Maybe it's just me???
