I have used swingline heavy dury staplers on the job as a supervisor and trainer to organize manufacturing and training documents. The heavy duty stapler fits these needs perfectly. These staplers are well made and virtually maintenance free.
We bought this HD stapler to replace one we have had for years. We use it on a daily basis. We have had this heavy duty stapler for 16 mos. The "stapling plate" where the staple curves when stapled broke. I called customer service, they are replacing it, no problem. So yes, I would recommend.
This stapler is a good stapler, but the reason for the 3 stars is that the staples seem to be the issue since they have been outsourced overseas. In my forum, everyone is starting to go to the DUAX stapler and we found the DUAX staples work flawlessly in this stapler. So, it's not the stapler that has problems it's the staples. Swingline warranty is fabulous, so if they want people to stay with the product they really need to look into the staple issue. My 2 cents.
