When I think “cap gun,” an entirely different image comes to mind for me than the one pictured above. However, this cap gun from Duo-Fast is a pneumatic-powered monster of a helping hand. Roofers and siding guys normally look upon cap staplers as a necessary evil with their jams and constant need to fuss over them. Duo-Fast’s DF150-CS claims to fix that.

Offering a significant boost to productivity on the job is Duo-Fast’s exclusive 240-cap spool system. The system enables Duo-Fast to offer the best cap capacity in the category, a perfect compliment to the tool’s 110-staple capacity. When it is time to add fasteners, an open-loading design makes reloading quick and easy and eliminates the hassles that previously accompanied the process.
Users can easily switch between three firing modes: bump, sequential, and staple-only. The three-mode firing system is new to the industry and is certain to make a lot of end users happy. When driving both caps and fasteners, the 18-gauge stapler drives 3/8” crown staples 1” in length. In staple-only mode, the DF150-CS is capable of driving narrow crown staples from ¾” to 1-1/2” in length.

Actually, we have no doubt that the DF150-CS will do what it says it will. Mostly because it reminds us of another cap gun, namely the CS150 from Paslode.

Just a guess, but we’re thinking that the Duo-Fast will perform much the same as the Paslode, which is to say well. So if you prefer blue to orange, this one’s right up your alley.

    Wouldn’t a “a perfect compliment to the tool’s 110-staple capacity” be a 220-cap spool, not a 240-cap spool? Seems like they just wnt you to waste staples or caps.

    Yeah I’m thinking that’s like the hot dog and bun thing. So you never run out at the same time and have to buy more regardless.

    GUN GUN GUN, enough about guns already

    I like the Bostich that has a cap magazine that can’t open and unroll the caps down across the roof.

    What’s the price differential between these two tools. Since they are the exact same product with different stickers, the pricing will be interesting.

    Looks like the Paslode doesn’t hold as many staples as the Duo-Fast, every listing I looked up quotes the magazine capacity of the Paslode at 90 staples.

    The SELL them in a box set that contains an equal number of caps and staples, your just going to have to load them at different times.

    From what I saw, they give you the exact amount of caps and staples per pack. I also saw the two tools listed as the same price depending on who is selling it.

    I’d be interested to see how this gets reviewed in real use. We’ve been using a Bostitch SB150 which is not without its foibles (caps sometimes seem to have a propensity for falling out – and staples don’t always drive flat) – but it sure beats a Stinger hand tool we picked up when it first came out. Thought the cheap Stinger might be OK for small jobs – but its now a dust collector in the back of the shop. The problem with the Stinger is that it would not advance the rolled caps or drive staples cosnsistently – so bad in fact that you might as well have used some totally manual method.
