Pexgun or Max cordless tie tool

Anyone use the cordless tools originally developed for rebar tying but now advertised for radiant? If so a couple of questions. How does it hold up mechanically in the long run? What do you think about using wire to tie tubing and the potential for it being too tight to allow any small amount of movement? Even embedded in concrete you'll get a little movement withing the structure of the PEX as it heats and cools. I understand you can set how tight or sloppy the tie is twisted with these tools.

Anyone have one for sale?
Jeff

    Did you ever end up buying one of these? I'm looking into it myself now and can't find much feedback

    I have a Pex Gun I think for what it is it works pretty good. I bought it for a job laying 25k feet of 3/4” tubing. I could of bought 3 of those guns for what pex staples would of cost. The tool cycled smoothly and worked pretty good. From what I am told the Max tool is far superior. I will never hand tie tubing to rebar again. I wish it wasn’t made in China. I found better pricing on my tool going through my wholesaler rather than dealing with Pex Gun directly as a contractor.
