What do we think of this? Tool or toy? Thoughts of the time I spend in lofts... which is a lot. Since these staples only work in wood, it's good for floor joists, lofts or timber frame. How often do I really use clips when routing cable through joists, none only along them. However when I am using them (clips) and I'm spending more time than I want to prattling about, I think this is a good idea and wish I had one.

Does it fit in between joists ?
I would hope so, never seen one in real life. The blurb advises that you can also drives the staples in with a hammer in tight spaces... so maybe not - wouldn't that be ironic...

I've not seen one either, but they look pretty hefty on the videos I have seen.

An alternative is the Arrow T72 manual stapler which also loads with insulated staples.

I didnt realise that.the us dewalt stuff (20v) 99% of time is same as uk 18v stuff with different sticker/badge and even with the import fees can work out cheaper than uk prices! Mate has a.lot of the us tools all 20v and work fine with 18v batteries, have a gander online the prices are.often quite a bit different
 
I love dewalt tools but paying that much for a stapler is a bit ott. Mind you I have just bought the 54v grinder today so who am I to say anything about the cost of things. If it makes your job and life easier then buy it

That’s a good point which I neglected to mention. All my power tools are dewalt, so I have the batteries (18 and 54) and chargers, so would only consider the bare tool which is then much cheaper. What do you think of the grinder - thought about getting but didn’t realise it was 54v. My SDS has paid for itself several time now and happy with it.
 
I picked it up after work so haven’t tried it yet. I have a 54v sds and it’s fantastic so I’m sure the grinder will be as good. I was looking at the cheaper grinder but I think everything is going towards the bigger battery so I’m trying to get all my tools with the bigger better batteries. I also have the dewalt lawnmower which is really really good. Very impressed

If I was clipping a lot to timber then I would probably invest in one, best Dewalt tool I have at the minute is the USB adapter for the batteries, great for charging my phone on site.

Which SDS do you have? 18v or 54v?
54v. The beauty is that I can use the same battery for longer life on the 18v stuff since it auto senses, and 18 or 3x18 = 54.
