Pneumatic floor nailers
as far as wich is better nails or staples...it really is personal preference because i have used both and they both hold equally well as proven by how difficult it was to pull out mislayed boards w/ either type of fastener...also the national office for my rental center did a test to see which worked best and found out that it was a wash they both performed equally well
i hope this helps
It uses cleats instead of the staples. So it would be a matter of which you want to get, if you get the sapler, plan on getting a finish nailer as well, or plan to nail the last few rows by hand, which is rather a pain since you need to predrill the holes first and then nail in the boards, and if your a lousy shot with a hammer like me, can be pretty disasterous when you miss. The PC tool can do both jobs. Then you need to consider the cost of fastners as well.
