Cutting through metal is a simple process if you have the right tool. Quickly slice your way through sheets of metal with the innovative DEWALT DW890 18 gauge electric shear with pivoting head. Powerful and easy to operate, the DW890 features a hearty 5 amp, all ball-bearing motor for enduring nonstop use and multiple speeds so you can adjust your tool for various metal widths. For increased precision, this shear also features a 360 degree pivoting head and operates without losing sight of the cutting line. For best results, use the DW890 with a maximum 18 gauge for low carbon steel and 20 gauge for stainless steel.

I bought this mainly to cut sheet steel for tool drawers, etc. They are built well, and feel very solid. It takes some practice to work well. My experience is that it seems to be this way for any electric metal shear. They cut in a straight line very well, but sometimes seem to hang up for some reason, especially on curves. They always have lots of power, but sometimes it takes some force to push it through the material, and sometimes it doesn't. It certainly helps to clamp your metal to a workbench. This is the only reason I didn't get it five stars.

The dual cutting action (on both sides) really limits the warpage, which is great. On pieces smaller than 2" wide, the warpage is practically non-existant, and _much_ reduced from my Bosch single action shear. The only problem with the dual cutting action is that it is more difficult to make an inside corner cut. I think I will keep both a single and dual action shear on hand for this reason.

It is more difficult to cut in a curve. It seems to hang up more when I do this, but most likely it's just me getting used to the angle they prefer, etc.

It cuts thick aluminum like butter, but has a harder time making curves in the thicker stuff.

Overall though, they are very solid and make cutting metal something very easy Vs. hand powered shears. I wouldn't go back!

Works well with the steel, but across the corrugated part not so well, maybe its the guy who's running the shears. Seems to be built well. Im glad I got it.

Nice variable speed drive allows for finessing around corners.
It's remarkable how smoothly this shear slices through sheet metal at low speed once you get the angle just right.
Don't expect it to cut through anything thick like the four layer joint of a spiral wound duct section unless the total thickness is the equivalent of 18 gauge or less.

Definitely better than a pair of handheld shears, there's no comparison there. But there is a bit of a learning curve in how to tilt the tool optimally so it advances through the metal stock easily. Tends to mar to the sides of what you are cutting, if that is a concern or not.Overall, I am pleased with it.

I use this tool a lot!
I like that the Dewalt has a trigger that can be locked on allowing the tool to be held in different ways.
The very similar 'Kett' tool does not have a trigger lock.
I wish that the cord came out of the top of the motor, keeping it away from the cut metal. (Are you listening Dewalt?)
