DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer Review for 2016
The DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer is truly a heavy-duty tool that is the right one for you if are looking for one that does its job without any flaws at all. The nice and sturdy design, combined with a good quality firing mechanism, seems to be the key to success when it comes to the DWHTTR350 model. However, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to this staple gun and many of those things are just going to make you appreciate the tool even more.
First of all, we should tackle the design aspect of the DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer, which resembles the classic design you might already be used to. You may have seen this yellow and black design at any of the big box hardware stores or your local ones as well. The colors are great, however, the outside design is not anything without the mechanical components. Let’s start by talking about the handle. The handle itself is sturdy and it will face prolonged usage flawlessly. Moreover, your hands aren’t going to suffer as much, thanks to the rubber grip that is quite easy on the skin. The handle isn’t the only key component of this staple gun though. The magazine has a proprietary anti-jam design which makes it easy to fire staples one after the other without the fear of a jam. You won’t ever see misfires either, thanks to this same proprietary design.
The outside of the tool doesn’t do justice all the way until the end. That means you should know that underneath the bright yellow and black design there is an aluminum housing which manages to keep the overall weight of the staple gun low while maximizing its durability over time. You should keep in mind that the DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer works with several kinds of staples. You can either purchase DEWALT DWHTTA700 staples designed for heavy-duty tasks or, in the same line, the Arrow T-50 ones. Both of them yield great results when shot with this gun. However, if you want something else, you can check out the 18-Gauge brads, or the heavy-duty staples of the Stanley TRA700 Series.
There is a bit of criticism when it comes to the design of the DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer. It is certainly not designed for small and medium-sized hands, mainly because of the lever’s steep angle, which makes it suited for larger hands. Moreover, the lever itself is harder to push than that of other similar staplers, so you will need a bit more force in order to successfully drive a staple into the desired material. However, for a lot of users, it seems that after the initial force applied to the lever, the rest of the push (The followthrough) will be much easier than other guns.
Overall, the DeWalt DWHTTR350 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Stapler/Brad Nailer does its job extremely well and despite the higher price mark for a manual staple gun, many customers agree that DeWalt did a good job on creating this premium product. However, like any other tool, it’s something that you should carefully work with and get used to in order to enjoy excellent results, one staple at a time.
