WOOD magazine review

Hitachi NT50AE Brad Nailer

Review Summary

High points: 5-year warranty was the longest in our test. Low points: Low/empty-magazine indicator doesn’t show until only three brads remain and doesn’t close completely when empty. We experienced some marring in hardwoods, possibly from the strong recoil of this unit. Nailer requires oil, but none is provided.
