Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its M18 LITHIUM-ION system with the introduction of three new M18 Metal Cutting Shears.
Delivering maximum control and ultimate versatility, the company says the new line is the largest and most complete cordless shear offering in the market today.
“Cordless shears are the No. 1 most requested tool from Milwaukee by Mechanical and HVAC professionals, but rather than quickly putting a tool on the market that mirrored competitive units, we took our time to deliver true innovation in the category,” says Andrew Plowman, director of marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “With a revolutionary in-line wrist design, users will be able to push through cuts from behind the tool for better control during use, and with the new innovative tool-free 360-degree rotating head, users will be able to easily adjust their tool to cut in tight spaces from any orientation.”
Available models will include an 18-gauge single cut shear (2367) for a broad range of industries including metal roofing, automotive and HVACR, an 18-gauge double cut shear (2635) for straight cuts through common sheet metal gauges, and the first-ever cordless 14-gauge double cut shear (2636) for cutting heavier gauge sheet metal, the company says.
Available in November 2014, Milwaukee adds that the new tools are compatible with the entire M18 System, now offering over 60 professional cordless solutions.
