CINCINNATI - The SENCO SHFS200 is a professional-grade, mallet-actuated hardwood flooring stapler that supplies best-in-class power with 547 inch-pounds at 100 PSI and uses 1” – 2” 15.5 gauge, ½” crown staples with a magazine capacity of 102 fasteners. At 21-1/2” in height, users find it easier and more comfortable to use while providing increased control.
The SHFS200’s tool-less non-marring base plate also makes alternating between ½” and ¾” flooring thicknesses quick and accurate. Users simply lift and rotate the base and release to lock it back into place. With the plate resting squarely against the surface, the tool is perfectly placed above the tongue on the floorboard so the direction and angle of the staple is automatic.
“The unique pad design adds greater versatility with its ability to swiftly accommodate different flooring thicknesses,” says product manager Eric Bellman. “Installers have reported using the pad to align the boards instead of a mallet as it is quicker to set-up and gives a tighter fit.”
The SHFS200 is equipped with a safety trigger that must be actively depressed to fire, so users don't have to worry about a fastener ejecting and damaging the floor or causing injury if the tool gets knocked over or bumped during transport. It also has an angled fitting to keep the air hose free and clear during operation.
When coupled with SENCO’s made in the U.S.A., class 1 galvanized staples featuring an innovative coating that spans the fastener up to the crown, the SHFS200 system offers better drivability coupled with increased holding power. Because each staple grips the wood with two prongs, staples provide a tighter initial grip than cleat nails.
Weighing just 11 pounds, the SHFS200 has a durable aluminum body and an elongated handle design with a comfort grip to reduce fatigue. The top-loading magazine allows for quick and easy fastener replenishment. It comes with a rugged carrying case, mallet, oil, wrenches, and safety glasses, and is affordably priced at $299.
The tool has a five-year limited warranty and is available through professional distributors including STAFDA, dealer co-ops, lumberyards, tool rental shops and online retailers. Go to www.senco.com for locations.
