Makita XTS01Z 18V LXT 3.0 Ah Cordless Lithium-Ion 3/8 in. Crown Stapler Review
The Makita XTS01Z 18V LXT 3.0 Ah Cordless Lithium-Ion 3/8 inch Crown Stapler is a great addition to anyone’s toolbox, especially if you are one of the professionals who is need of a staple gun that is designed to maximize your earnings when put to work. This staple gun is an electric one, which makes it way more effective than a simple hand-powered one. You can instantly drive the staples into the surface with the push of the trigger and your hand won’t get tired after only a few staples, like it would with a manual staple gun.
This staple gun has a proprietary Makita designed motor that is powerful for a gun like this. This proprietary motor gives it enough power to drive down 3/8 crown staples, but if flat crown staples are your staple of choice, then this gun can do it too. The reviews praise this tool for its main advantage in comparison to other electric staplers; the force in this staple gun is enough to drive down the staples into a wide assortment of materials, regardless of their strength. You can easily adjust the depth of the staple so you won’t accidentally break thinner materials if you drive staples through them.
The Makita XTS01Z is not just able to easily drive the staples into any kind of material, it is also equipped with a jam-proof mechanism which keeps the gun from jamming. Most of the time, when you use a staple gun, you might have some issues with staples that get stuck inside, instead of being driven into the material. However, you won’t have that issue with this tool, given that it is able to crush the staple and not get jammed in the process. The whole mechanism of the XTS01Z model is carefully designed so from the time you load the staples at the beginning of a project up until the moment you call it a day, you won’t run into any issues at all. Moreover, you won’t have to take too many breaks besides loading the gun, because your hand won’t get tired and the staples will never get stuck in the gun. However, as it has been noted in the product’s reviews, you should take care to apply enough pressure on the tool so it won’t recoil and drive the staple only halfway into the material.
The usual issue you might have when it comes to the Makita XTS01Z staple gun is that the gear motor and the train make a bit too much noise. However, if you’re working in a larger project and you are not the only one with a tool, this is hardly going to be an issue. Another perk comes once again from the driving mechanism, which is based on a spring. This makes the tool much easier to staple with, so usability is at an all-time high with this gun. Another benefit is that the grip is covered in rubber so that sweaty, slippery hands won’t be an issue. The whole body of the tool is made out of durable plastic and the magazine, probably the part which goes under maximum stress when in use, it’s made out of aluminum so that new staples can be both loaded and fed with ease. With the many benefits of this staple gun, using the Makita XTS01Z is always a pleasure, regardless of the project you have to work on.
