Cobber gun

The only gun of its kind

  • Works on all types of soil
  • Anti-jamming

Throughout time, the erosion control and industrial landscaping industries have used staple pins that are manually hammered into the ground. This method is labour intensive and time consuming, considering each project may cover tens of thousands of square metres. The manual installation of 30-60,000 pins may take several months, resulting in high employee turnover, poor job satisfaction, and serious OHS risks.

In 2007, after supplying this niche industry with pins since 1994, Cobber worked closely with their customers and began the journey to design a superior stapling device that would reduce OHS risks and facilitate the monotonous and laborious task of installing pins. The Cobber Staple Gun has been improved and refined in the field over the last eight years, following meticulous functional handling and extensive testing by a select group of industrial landscaping installers.

The Cobber Staple Gun is a low fall rate, mechanical staple gun with the ability to work on all types of soil, is impressively light and does not jam. It has passed all 500,000 square metre challenges, in earth varying from soft to reasonably rocky. The Cobber Staple Gun has been a game-changer in the industry, providing relief to landscapers who were frustrated with imported, poorly designed staple guns that failed to deliver in real-world rural settings.
