When You Need It, You Really Need It!
FOR WHAT YOU NEED WHEN YOU NEED IT: APPLICATIONS
Malco 16-Gauge Capacity Metal-Cutting TurboShears are rated for cutting steel sheets and profiles encountered on construction sites and in garages including metal building construction and industrial HVAC installations or autobody restoration, custom builds and repairs. Applications include building components, equipment enclosures, autobody panels, trunk pans, floor boards and more.
EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED: MODEL SELECTION
TurboShear Attachments quickly insert into a drill you already own! A 3/8-inch (10 mm) drill, (minimum of 14.4-Volt D/C cordless or maximum 7-Amp A/C corded), is all you need. The shear’s aluminum-cast head and telescoping drill clamp offer one-handed control. The compact molded polymer clamp adjusts for both length and width of any drill housing. An air powered model is also available.
FOR AS LONG AS YOU NEED IT: PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE LIFE
All Malco 16-Gauge TurboShears feature a helical shaped foot which allows the shear to make easy left, right or straight cuts. A 5-position head allows cutting access over mild profiles and into tight spaces. Clearance between the shear’s cutting inserts may be adjusted as necessary for optimal performance in 16 to 26-gauge (1.52 – 0.46 mm) steel. The four-sided cutting inserts are designed to be rotated to maximize life before replacement. Insert cutting life is rated at 1,200-ft (365.76 m) in 16-gauge (1.52 mm) steel using the four edges of the inserts. Cutting life increases dramatically when averaged over cuts in a variety of steel thicknesses. Inserts are accessible without disassembly of the shear head and are easily replaced on the job.
