If you have ever had to cross cut corrugated or high rib roofing or siding, the type most commonly found on metal buildings, it doesn't take long for you to discover that there is only one tool that does the job smoothly and near effortlessly. Hand shears?..forget it, they just mess up the cut, a Uni-shear?...works OK for straight or curved cuts on a flat panel but it is near useless on the hills and valleys of a corrugated or high rib panel.
The right tool for the job is a 16 gauge nibbler and one of the best on the market is the Hitachi CN16SA. The first time I used this tool I couldn't believe how fast and smoothly it cut through the 26 gauge metal.
Two features to look for of when purchasing a nibbler, the most important one is the length of the neck, the longer the neck the easier it is to get over the hills and valleys. I found out how important the length of the neck is the hard way. I first bought a Dewalt nibbler, a quality tool with ample power but the neck was too short and it was darn near impossible to get the tool up and over the high crown of the corrugations.
The second feature is power, and I discovered this Hitachi CN 16SA is more than adequate when I later cut out some patterns from a 16 gauge sheet of mild steel.
I have no problem giving this tool a five star rating.

The Hitachi Nibbler is one of the two best purchases I have ever made. Cutting corrugated 26 gauge steel roofing is not fun! The Nibbler makes it easy. A little difficult in the beginning due to figuring out how to make it move up and down on an angle cut, but once that is done it's terrific. I am a contractor and love purchasing tools that save time and turn out a good product.

This was used to trim a newly installed metal roof. The problem was the front of the 1930's house was not exactly straight so the metal roof extended over the roof eaves from 3 to 6 inches. Using a 2X4 as a guide the eave was trimmed using the Hitachi nibbler so the overhang is now 2". The nibbler worked perfectly, it was easy to cut across the ribs of the metal roof. The line cut was clean, far better than sawing or grinding or using a hand shear. I will be using it for more projects, it is my new favorite tool.

This product works amazingly well on sheet metal roofing. I recently placed a sheet metal roof on my house that has a gable roof with additions on both ends. That meant almost every sheet needed cut on at least one end and about half needed to be cut on both ends. I planned on cutting the sheets with an electric sheet metal sheer. The sheer cuts the sheets fine end to end, but will not go over the ridges to cut the sheets at the required diagonal. After one day of not accomplishing much due to the time required cutting the sheets by hand, I ordered the nibbler, and waited a few days for it's arrival. I was extremely pleased with it's operation. Cutting the sheets was almost fun.

This tool is a must for anyone installing a metal roof. It is one of the best assets in a tool that I have ever purchased. I would never attempt a project of this magnitude without this tool. I am so pleased that Amazon has the variety of tools so useful.

What a great tool! We use this tool 4 days per week to cut 26 and 29 ga corrugated metals. We used to cut metal with a grinding wheel...this is so much faster and safer...no sparks. I would buy this again!

This nibbler is absolutely perfect for cutting corrugated sheet metal and roofing panel. It is a fabulous product. Only thing that would make it better is if it were cordless.
