You know, when buying bargain-priced tools you never know if it will work or explode in your face. I had a lot of 5V pole barn siding to cut, and using hand shears again was not an option. Anyway, this tool cut right through hundreds of feet of 26 gauge Galvalume with no problems. I was very happy with it.

The two stationary cutters were so mis-ground that a sheet of 26 gauge couldn't even enter the cut. I'm a tool maker by trade so I took it apart, re-machined the cutters and now it works like a charm. The external finishing is immaculate, that gets a 5. I'd say buying one is a krap-shoot because their quality control is whats wrong, not the separate parts necessarily. Six months ago I bought their nibbler, took it apart before running it and sure was glad I did - the little gear box was crammed with machining filings that some careless assembly person hadn't bothered to remove -it would have self-destructed in minutes. I'd say if you by one take it all apart and examine it first before running it.

I installed 3000 square feet of 22 gauge metal roofing. I could cut down the length of an 18 foot long panel as fast as I walked. It cut a nice smooth line. A nice tool.

I bought these power shears for trimming and cutting steel roof panels. I was a bit apprehensive because some reviews stated that they did not work well if the material wasn't flat. Although it took a little nuance and touch to get used to the right way to handle the tool, I has no problem cutting over and through the ribs in the roof panels. Was able to cut through the ribs perpendicularly, at a shallow angle, and gradually when ripping the panels the long way. The head swivel feature was great to keep the air chuck from dragging across the panels as I cut (13+'). Overall very satisfied withe the product Hint: If you are cutting an exposed edge of a paninted roof panel, cut from the back side, the stationary shear jaws may scratch the work surface.

A low cost, low effort solution. Perfect? No. Works? Yes. Problems, binds at annoying points of a cut. Desireable, gets the job done for the persistent. If you don't have "shop volume" 90psi air, it will be frustrating.

Used this product 3-4 times on thin sheet metal, then something internally broke. Overall, we used it for less than 15 minutes total before it broke. Junk.
