Hitachi released an updated and re-designed version of its 1-1/2″ narrow crown pneumatic stapler. The biggest change: a selective actuation switch that lets you select between “bump fire” and “sequential fire” actuation.
Called the N3804AB3 — gotta love those long Hitachi model numbers — it weighs in at 2.3 lbs. and accepts 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ 18-gauge 1/2″ crown staples. Hitachi also touts its tool-less, “easy-to-clear” nose which should speed up the clearing of staple jams. A no-mar tip helps to protect your work surface.
It ships with a case, safety glasses, an air fitting, and hex-bar wrenches. We’re not sure how much it’ll cost yet, but we’ll let you know when we find out.
