Anyone have a puenmatic staple gun I can borrow

I'm trying to put new seat covers on my 4-wheeler's. Seems my cows have taken a liking to them and chewed then silly. I've got the new seat covers however my electric staple gun just doesn't have the power to seat the staple into the plastic seat. Tried a T-50 staple gun and that was a joke as well. I need something bigger and more powerful! Will pay shipping both ways and I just need it for a day or so.

Thanks everyone!

    Do it the old fashioned way with hog rings. Of the millions of those rings that have been manufactured, I'll bet 90%+ of them never saw a hog's nose!

    Harbor freight. Won't last long, but maybe long enough for the job you're doing.

    Perfect thanks, cheap and easy! I have one local to me.

    Yea, that works. I bought a pneumatic finishing nail gun from them. Had to buy 2 to get one good one, but it's worked so far!

    Wash the new seat covers occasionally. It's the salt from sweat that they're after. :tooth:

    This. I bought a tile cutter from HF to do the kitchen and two bathrooms. The saw was just about dead when I finished. Sold it on Craig's list for half what I paid for it!

    My friends that have cattle are really careful not to leave any equipment in their pastures for very long. They say the cows will chew up any plastic they can get to including wire insulation.

    That includes plastic binder twine on round hay bales. I'd always cut the strings off the bales I fed. It's a little weird to watch a cow walking around the pasture with a plastic string several feet long hanging out of its butt!

    Risking inflicting a possibly permanent injury to a valuable brood cow would be the height of stupidity. These animals aren't pets or toys- - - - -they're an income-producing investment.

    Quick trip to Harbor Freight in Wichita Falls this morning. Was in and out in 10 minutes as I was on a mission. The pneumatic staple gun on was on sale from $24.99 to $17.99...even better. Got back, hooked it to the air line loaded it up and it made short work of the task at hand. Each seat took about 30 min or so of stretching and stapling, saying dang it a few times, pulling staples and redoing it here and there. In the end it looks fine and is functional, though you wouldn't want to hire me for extremely professional results.

    Thanks for the heads up and idea!

    One of my first jobs out of high school was in Collins Chair Factory in Cleveland, TN. I put the upholstery on recliners and living room furniture. Staple puller got a workout doing the Naugahyde stuff; it didn't like to cooperate! I know what you dealt with putting on that seat cover.Fabric covering is MUCH easier to deal with regarding upholstery!

    Heck - you didn't even have to take the 1st one back to get another one that worked! :up:
