Stapler that will work on my wooden fence


We have a 4 rail wooden fence(725 LF) and i need to attach wire mesh to keep the dogs from getting out and the rabbits from getting in . I have tried using a variety of "heavy duty" staplers but the staple either bends or doesnt go all the way in. Ive tried using a hammer to pound the high ones in but it never seems to work.

Here is what we have now...

This is what we're shooting for.

It probably would have been easier if the fence builder did this at the time of installation, but we are where we are and I need something that will allow me to do some rapid-fire stapling.

Any suggestions for a pneumatic or electric solution?

Welcome to the Forum.

THIS (or another brand counterpart) is the gun you want to use.

You should be able to rent it. I'd use stainless steel staples.

Since it's pressure treated your going to have to use as a minimum electro galvinized staples, stainless would last longer.
Only ones I could find that work in a gun are these.
Another way would be to just tack up the fencing and go back over the back side with another layer layer of 1 X 6 Pressure treated board using ring shank stainless steel fencing nails.
That way I know the dogs can not knock it off.
I hope you have small dogs, a bigger one can go right over the top.

Have you checked to see if you can pick up a cheap air stapler from Harbor freight or Amazon,if not maybe rent one from HD,thats the only easy way you'll get staples in that fence.

Did the exact think you are doing with a cheap harbor freight narrow crown stapler pneumatic with galvanized staples. As i've tried making repairs I still break out the pneumatic as the electric or hand staplers won't drive in enough to hold.
