Built from the ground up for peak performance and durability, Milwaukee says the new Long Cut Straight Snips and Long Cut Offset Snips are innovative solutions for metalworking and mechanical professionals who need to make long, straight cuts through sheet metal and ductwork.
“From our extensive research with HVAC and mechanical professionals who cut sheet metal and HVAC duct every day, it was clear we needed to develop a long-cut solution to make these jobs faster and easier,” says Bobby Shaw, director of marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “With the new long cut snips, we are excited to expand our metalworking hand tools and continue to innovate for our core users in the mechanical trades.”
Backed by Milwaukee’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, the new Long Cut Straight Snips provide 3 in. cut length through 20 gauge cold rolled steel, while the Long Cut Offset Snips slice through a 2.5 in. cut length, Milwaukee says. The Long Cut Offset snips also feature a 45-degree angle, which keeps users’ hands above the cutting material for added protection and control, the company says.
All Milwaukee Snips are made with forged metal heads and hard chrome plating for maximum rust protection, tool strength and durability, the company says.
