Although some contractors say the best way to install fence staples is with a hammer, pneumatic fencing staplers provide a consistent drive and can help you work faster. Gone are the days of smashing fingers with a hammer while constructing a fence. If you’re looking for a new fence stapler to help you speed through projects with greater safety and produce a high quality result, here are some factors to consider.
First, determine the type of staples you need to use, and then start looking for a stapler that will accommodate them. It’s also important to consider durability when purchasing a fence stapler. The tool needs to be able to withstand regular wear and tear, but if it’s too heavy, then it will be cumbersome and difficult to use over a long period of time.
Think of locations you’re likely to use the tool. If you’re installing a fence miles away from a power outlet, then it would be important to have a stapler that is gas or battery powered. For battery powered staplers, make sure to invest in extra batteries so you don’t have to halt a project to recharge. Although not an essential feature, sequential triggering can really speed up the process and put less strain on the user. Finally, the best fencing staplers have an adjustable depth of drive. This makes the tool much more versatile, and it can be used in a variety of applications.
Fencing staplers will certainly save you time, but they can save you money too. When hammering in a staple it’s easy to flatten or damage it in the process. This can be costly if a high number of staples are being wasted. Staplers are also more convenient for the user. The process of manually installing staples can be frustrating and tiresome, but with the help of a tool you get more done in less time, with less effort required.
