Hey Doob, how about a review of your new post driver and gas stapler. I have a Paslode stapler which is a great bit of kit, but only fires industrial staples rather than fencing staples. I find I use it more than my paslode nailer for thinner stuff as it holds better.

I presume that your size tilty doesn't have a rotary coupling through it Shaun, so no oil flow to enable a gripper/grab/hyd hitch? :(
otherwise, I see no reason to have to ''step up'' on the control side of things, from your SS15, which you obviously find 'comfortable' enough.:rolleyes:

as you all know, my VA-r [Variable Angle rotator, as I call mine];) is an SS15 type of control system, but with the 4 gallery rotary I've fitted, I have a hyd hitch and Aux. QCs for grab/grapple/whatever, but still run from my proportional pedal feed.

To be able to attach a gripper to mine, I'd either need to have an electrical slip ring facility, through the rotary, to control a 6x2 diverter, for Aux./gripper, in the lower, lower half :rolleyes: .... or install a 6 gallery rotary [which I'm considering, having acquired such a beast, a while back];):)

To run that I'd either have to fit a 6 x 2 diverter, above my rotator, to have an either / or set up for Aux. / gripper, or fit another Cetop3, to control it [I have two extra, spare buttons], which I could use to control either; a.n.other Cetop, or use just a single button to energise a 6 x 2 diverter. The ideal would be the Cetop route, but there'd be a lot of head scratching as to just where I can physically fit it and its associated plumbing .... it's already very tight in the VA-r's body :( ............. and therein lies the issue that Engcon, etc. have ..... space!:unsure:
Even with their ability to manufacture their own manifolds and rotaries to physically fit their constraints, they are still governed by the sheer physical size of the Cetop3 valve blocks and solenoids ... they ain't small :( ...... so incorporating them into small units is damn nigh 'mission impossible':(

going back to the control side of it ..... I know my system is 'old hat/skool', but it's what I am used to and having tried a prop. roller system a few times, I found it incredibly difficult to adapt to .... admittedly I only got a quick 'crack' each time, but I am so used to holding a button, to select whatever motion(s) I want and controlling flow with my left foot, I found myself not letting go of the rollers:unsure::( .... I'd get there with practice, but have no issues with SS15 and am able to control everything simultaneously ..... rotate/tilt/Aux. and even QH if I wanted to ... with the additional plumbing above, it would even be possible to control a gripper simultaneously too...... I'd need an extra left thumb thoug
SS15 is not the devil it's made out to be, by everyone with DC2, etc., but a very flexible, controllable system ;) in familiar hands [and feet] :giggle:

............ Druid puts on tin hat and retires behind blast wall :oops::unsure::LOL:
You are not wrong with what you say. I keep meaning to get around to do a diverter but every time I think about it I usually find something else to do! I have a friend who keeps promising me he will help but we never seem to be available at the same time!!

I agree with you on the SS15. I find my left foot does what it needs to do without a second thought.

what are you going to use a 6x2 diverter for Shaun?

Have a look at the dewalt nailers and staplers. All electric no GAS. I use the first fix one a lot, while a bit heavier than a paslode its much cheaper to run and no messing about with service kits or pissing on the gas cans to warm them up when its cold.

I have a DeWALT second fix nail gun that fires brads which is pretty good, but it has been superseded by the stapler.
Hadn’t thought about pissing on the gas cans!. Tend to keep the them indoors overnight then leave them in a warm truck until needed. Was much better when you could buy winter gas, but it got banned. I guess in case you used it in hot conditions a really drove stuff in.

OMG:eek: ..... Friday job by the sound of it :rolleyes: .... after all the checks in Gra's video the other day it's pretty remarkable :unsure:
After been round the factory myself and seen how each individual unit is checked and double checked before even been let out of the door, I find it pretty remarkable to??....I think that it took 2 days to instal begs the question to how many pipes were cracked and moved around during the install/fitting and maybe not re-tightened might be more of the right lines to go down.

certainly a very odd situation, for sure:confused::unsure:
