Owing to the special needs of tongue and groove wood floors, a special kind of nail and nail gun is needed to firmly affix them to each other and to the cleats. L-shaped cleat nails are usually needed for this job requiring a tool called a cleat nailer, such as the Akuzuki X-799 Hardwood Floor Nail Gun.
The X-799 is actually a combination hardwood floor cleat nailer and stapler. It is capable of firing 16 gauge L-shaped nails with lengths from 1 to 2 inches, and 15.5 gauge staples measuring also from 1 to 2 inches with its safety trigger. Operating at an air pressure between 60 and 100 PSI, the nails or staples shot from the nail gun can easily penetrate hardwoods as thick as ½", 5/8", ¾, 25/32".
The body of the nailer/stapler is made of die cast aluminum making it lightweight and easy to carry around the job site. Along with the tool, a high-quality mallet with white rubber head is supplied. It is non-marring and light in weight. There are two base flooring plates that are also non-marring, one for ½" and 5/8" nails and another for ¾" and 25/32". This assures you that your floor slats are free from scratches and abrasions.
Also supplied with the nailer/stapler is a blow mold carrying case. For the assembly, adjustments, or repair of the tool, four hex keys and a service wrench are included. And as guides for its operation and repair, a detailed instruction manual and an internal component diagram are likewise thrown in. A complete rebuilding and repair kit is even included. This consists of gaskets, seals, o-rings, springs, and a 2-oz. bottle of oil.
The Akusuki X-799 Hardwood Floor and Nail Gun has dimensions of 19" x 4" x 21". It weighs about 13 lbs.
