The Senco SLS150Mg 18 Gauge 1/4″ Crown Stapler arrived in late 2013. Senco gave us a sneak peek of what to expect ahead of time. We were impressed and awarded it with our Pro Tool Innovation Award for Pneumatics.
Senco SLS150Mg Crown Stapler Features
The Mg in the model number is for, as you probably guessed, magnesium, which the body is constructed from to make it lighter at only 2.6 pounds. Depth of drive adjustments are achieved easily with a thumbwheel and a simple selector switch allows the user to choose between bump fire and sequential fire applications. This finish nailer accepts 18 gauge 1/4″ crown staples that range from 1/2″ to 1-9/16″ and has a capacity of 110 fasteners. The air inlet swivels to help avoid tangled air hoses.
So what exactly is so innovative about the Senco SLS150Mg that we gave it an award? That would be due to its oil-free motor. Sure, I know that they are becoming more common, and we’re seeing them in the air compressors a lot. This is a 1/4″ crown stapler though, and yes, that is innovative.
Originally, the crown stapler was available exclusively at Lowe’s, but a quick look at the “Where to Buy” feature on Senco’s website showed many other retailers. The price looks to be $99.49, and the tool comes with Senco’s 5-year limited warranty.
