Husky 18-Gauge Flooring nailer: The versatile Husky 18-Gauge Flooring nailer is the ideal tool to install your tongue and groove flooring ranging from 3/8 in. to 3/4 in. thick, solid or engineered, including the denser, exotic hardwoods like Stranded Bamboo and Brazilian Cherry. This Husky nailer utilizes the thinner 18-Gauge L-Cleats, which are less likely to split the tongue on softer, engineered flooring and allows for easier penetration when installing higher density wood flooring. Features include: no-mar base making it safe for engineered flooring and pre-finished surfaces, light strike bumper for ease of use on softer, engineered flooring, fiberglass mallet for added durability, lighter weight and non-marring head; anodized aluminum magazine for increased durability, die cast aluminum body, hardened steel drive blade to increase longevity and swivel air connector for hassle free mobility. The Husky 18-Gauge Flooring nailer is the best choice for installing the majority of solid or engineered tongue and groove wood flooring.
