Review of the Bostitch MFN-201 Kit

There is no need to have any muscle power to get the job done with this kit; unlike comments from some of the sceptics. Many customers have found that they can easily lay their flooring down easily without all the extra hard work with a hammer and nails. The best thing is that you can change the amount of power you use quickly, depending on the type of flooring that you’re putting down. This is especially perfect for amateur installers since it is so easy to  use.

The Bostitch MFN-201 Flooring Nail Gun Kit is excellent for those who want to protect their floors. It doesn’t matter what type of wood you’re using; it can be used. There are rubber bumpers that can be placed around the nail to protect the flooring around. This prevents the damage that many hammers and nail guns cause.

You don’t have to go out and buy anything special for the kit to work. There is no need to worry about a compressor or the hoses that you would when using nail guns. You don’t need to worry about the working safety mechanisms or make sure that the power is set to the right level for your needs. Everything is done manually and you have much more control during the process.

Jams can happen. This happens with any piece of equipment. The good news is that the jams are rare—and usually from lack of care by the user! When jams do happen, they are extremely easy to solve so you can get straight back on with work. There are no small, fiddly bits to worry about along the way. There are also times that it will misfire but this is, again, like many other nailer kits on the market.

Some customers have noted the extra effort needed than when using pneumatic nailguns. The good news is that they’ve also noticed a cleaner and tighter finish. This is worth the extra effort; especially when you get to save money too! The effort is really only in the nailing. There is little effort setting up and getting ready to use the nailer kit.

Customers have noted that they get tired after a long project but that is to be expected. It’s important to take regular breaks and split up a project in stages to avoid fatigue.
