Be careful! You're stepping right into a gang war among fencing contractors as to what stapler is the 'right' one to use.

I thought I was just posting a few pictures in the fencing pics thread and got my card marked for making an innocent comment about staplers. I think its the fencing version of 'Which pickup should I buy', or 'Which tractor brand is best?', passions run high! :D:D

I've got the stockade ones @ around £500 for compressed air gun and circa £1k for the gas gun.
Are they good? yes, gas one is a little heavy, they put staples in well which I'm happy will last the life of the fence. Staples are pricy especially 50mm's as you have to buy the gas ones.
Are the cheaper versions any worse?, I don't know. The people that use they don't have any complaints . They are a lot cheaper to buy and staples are half the price. If I didn't already own the stockade I would seriously consider the other brands, which I think are the same gun under different stickers (tejep, Montana, senco).

I don't mind paying the initial out lay for the stockade but expensive staples to go through it wind me up when other makes are half the price.

Good honest reply!
Is 50mm staple necessary? 40mm is biggest I use.

Used to use all 40mm's but gone up to 50mm's now. Just for better holding especially on barb or single strand fences. No one has got time to knock the odd staple in if one has come out so why not try to stop them coming out to begin with.

I find it depends a lot on the staples. Some 40mm have a good barb on them. Some don't have any.

John. i cant justify the stockade. everything more expensive than the tjep.
yes the tjep staples are a bit narrower but thats the only difference the gap to hold wire is the same and the length is the same.
ive never had an issue.
the thing that rankles me is stockade themselves and stockade owners totally dismissing the tjep. montana etc. as some mickey mouse tool. and most have never used it.
i would like to have seen who wouldve bought what if they were launched at the same time.
stockade were undoubtedly lucky that they had no competitor to go up against.
why not have a go of one John.
you may be pleasantly surprised.
