I've been doing metal roofing for around twelve years and this is by far the best powered metal cutting tool I've met. Conventional nippers and punches were all inferior to my midwest snips Midwest Left Cuts Snip but when we found this marvelous invention maybe four or five years ago I finally had a competent powered snips.

This tool works better than advertised. It can indeed cut through several layers of standard metal roofing (28-29 gauge) thus saving extra time if you are cutting several pieces at the same angle or length. It fits the 18v DeWalt screw guns like it's been specially designed for it, but is also very versatile allowing it to fit different sizes and shapes of drills.

After years of hard use these things are still going strong. The jaws are a tad looser than they used to be and could use a little adjustment, but are still functioning well.

I wish I could meet the guy who invented this amazingly simple piece of ingenuity. Five and a half stars!!!!

I recently re-roofed my house in red metal. The roof had several complex valleys where the metal needed to be cut at various angles. The steel roofing panels were easily cut with the Malco TSHD attachment. I alternated using it between a Ryobi 18 volt battery powered electric drill and a Black & Decker 14.4 volt battery powered Fire Storm drill. Both worked equally well. The Turbo Shear attachment went through the 29 gauge steel like a knife through butter. The 3/4 inch high ribs were not a problem for the Turbo Shear attachment to cut through.

One thing I noticed was that the bottom shear jaw would scratch the metal on it's side; however, by placing the cutter on the waste side, this was eliminated. The spindle has three flats which makes it easy to tighten the battery powered drill's keyless chuck around. If you are installing metal roofing, this is a low-cost alternative to both a nibbler and power shear, plus with the freedom of going cordless.

Buy it.

This is an awesome tool for me. I'm an HVAC tech that has to cut metal once in a while but not very often. I loathe using hand shears and that makes this a great tool for me. It takes up little room in the van, connects to the drill easily (I've tried it on 2 types, both work great), and it does its job very well.

I bought the turboshear hoping it would work as described. I wanted to remove some ribbed metal roofing from the valleys on my house and replace it with flat metal. As I got into the project, It required a combination of turboshear, tin snips and attitude, due to multiple layers. The turboshear could not cut multiple layers but was able to get into pretty tight spots. It definitely made this project go a lot faster. Occasionally if I used too much force trying to get into a tight area, the brackets would slip on the drill handle. This didn't happen a lot. I definitely pushed the limits of the turboshear and was pleasantly surprised at how well it performed.

These scissor type power shears work very well. Mostly I work with copper sheet metal so I prefer them to the double cut models which have a strip of waste product with each cut. Previously I have always used hand snips for all long cuts, these shears save my arm from cramps. Not a perfect edge on the cut, but good enough for roofing products which I mostly do. Very beefy, not too heavy, looks like they will last forever...

I am a professional roofer. I bought these shears for working with 24g sheet steel. The shears cut through this steel readily. As a matter of fact, they will cut through a double layer of 24g. With a little effort you can cut the top 1/8" off a double locked standing seam. If you do any steel roofing, this is a great tool to have in your bag. Hooked up to a cordless drill, they will do a decent job of the long cuts one has to do now and then, like ripping down panels at the rake edges. Since the jaws a pretty small, the lift on the waste side of the cut is also fairly small. This means that a panel that has a turned up edge (like a standing seam roof panel) can be cut fairly close to the bend, something a pair of hand shears cannot negotiate easily. The waste side will be a bit wavey, but the good side will be fairly clean. When I make this type of cut I rough it in with the turbo shear (to about a half inch off the line)and then recut with good hand shears. This might seem like extra work, but if you ever had to rip a 20 foot 16" standing seam panel down to 14" you know what an effort hand shears present.

I have used this tool for 6 months and I am impressed with what it will do. Double cuts are a form of abuse, but so far the tool still does its job. It is not a dream tool, but for about $75 it's well worth having in your bag.

Verified Purchase
After patching the roof over my back bedroom and kitchen annually, I decided to replace the tar paper material with a metal roof. Being a novice at metal roofs and remembering the pain caused by tin snips, I wanted something better. After researching tools to make cutting the metal easier, I settled on the Malco TSHD Turboshear Heavy-Duty nibblers. They exceeded my expectations. I didn't have to use conventional tin snips at all because of the versatility of the tool.

My father in-law is a handyman and helped me with the roof. He has all sorts of tools for pretty much everything. He started to grab his metal cutting tools when I handed him this tool. Hardly anything impresses him but after he used it, he wanted to know where he could get some of his own. He was amazed how someone unskilled as I am could find such a great tool. I'm no longer useless to him. That in itself is more than worth the price I paid for it.

Highly recommended.
