NuMax may not be the biggest brand name in power tools, nail guns included, but they seem to be onto a winner with the SBR50 NuMax nailer. The SBR50 is a low-price entry brad nailer, 18 gauge and fires up to 2″ brads.
In our review roundups so far, many top-brand nail guns have performed well from the likes of Hitachi, Porter Cable and DeWalt as you may expect. However, we are interested to see why actual customers of the relatively unknown NuMax nailer rate the SBR50 as highly as the top brands.
At the time of writing this review for the NuMax SBR50 nailer, there were only 5 user reviews. However, while this may be too low a number to get a good picture of the NuMax nailer performance, it does give an indication as to how well received the nail gun is from professionals and DIY enthusiasts.
The SBR50 brad nailer scored an impressive 4.4 out of 5 stars average from those customers. 3 of them rated the SBR50 5 stars, 1 person rated 4 stars and the last person rated 3 stars. No 2 or 1 star ratings were awarded.

NuMax SBR50 – The Bad
It seems the lack of a case is not appreciated by one customer…
“No case included and I would replace the air inlet adapter with quality one. Oil frequently…”
Also another user marked the NuMax down for this reason:
“No rubber foot on the contact point–the tool WILL leave a dent after the brad is driven. With the proper technique (it takes some practice), the mark can be minimized…”
That’s about all there was as far as negative comments were concerned.
For a brad nailer that currently costs $29.99 (you can check the latest price on the link below) the SBR50 NuMax nailer seems to hit the spot among the reviewers that own it. We agree that the SBR50 is a better-than-average 2-inch nailer and best of all it comes with a budget price tag!
While professionals and heavy users may want to spend a little more on a more advanced model, the SBR50 seems ideal choice for the average user. Click the link below to read more user reviews of the SBR50 NuMax nailer.
