Glorious summertime. A season that many excitedly anticipate after enduring winter. For trade professionals, however, summer is typically one of the busiest times of the year. Whether you are installing an HVAC system on the roof of a building, updating the siding on a house, or working in a hot auto body shop, scorching temperatures can be an obstacle on the job. In addition to staying hydrated and taking frequent breaks, using power drill attachments instead of hand tools can help you save valuable time and energy, decreasing the amount of strenuous activity when working in the elements. Get your job done faster and more efficiently with these Malco tools that are engineered to perform for multiple industries and applications. Please explore our website to learn more about the full list of power-assisted attachments we have to offer.
Handy Power Drill Attachments for HVAC, Building Construction & Automotive Applications
TurboShear® Heavy Duty (TSHD)
Here’s a power drill attachment that has revolutionized the HVAC market. Transform your drill or small impact driver into an 18-gauge, metal-cutting power shear with the best-selling TSHD attachment. Its wide-opening jaws can operate at high or low speeds for optimum control and easily cut through layered metal and seams, even the ribs of spiral duct. The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for additional flexibility. A pneumatic option is also available.
TurboShear® Double Cut (TSMD)
Need a double cut for the job? Turn your drill or small impact driver into a powerful double-cutting metal shear with smooth one-handed operation. The blades can approach a cut from either end to remove a narrow spiral scrap from the tool path to produce a clean, straight edge on both sides of the cut. Navigate up to 90° outside profiles of metal ductwork and cut through seams with ease. The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for excellent tool clearance. A pneumatic option is also available.
Say hello to the ultimate sheet metal crimping power drill attachment. Make fast, easy, and precise crimps in 24- to 30-gauge round duct and pipe with effortless one-handed operation. The TurboCrimper features a telescoping clamp that adjusts to fit the length and width of most drill housings, with a recommended low-speed setting during usage. With a 9:1 gear reduction that ensures safety and control, insert and remove metal by setting the crimper lever in the down position to open the gears. If the metal exceeds capacity, a clutch in the gear mechanism prevents any damage to the attachment. If you have an impact driver, check out the TurboCrimper® Impact that works 78% faster (based on actual field trials) than using a manual sheet metal crimping tool!
TurboShear® Vinyl Siding (TSV1)
Get the power you need in a lightweight package. Whether you want to make fast straight cuts, circles, or squares in 0.055” vinyl siding, Malco’s TSV1 attachment features a knife-like beveled blade edge that quickly penetrates the lock seam edge with ease to cut any shape you need. Use this power-assisted attachment with a cordless drill or small impact driver for ultimate portability and convenience. Its wide-opening jaws can operate at high or low speeds for optimum control to follow a precise cut line. A pneumatic option is also available, in addition to TurboShear attachments for cutting fiber cement and backer board siding.
TurboShear® Corrugated Metal (TSCM)
Corrugated metal has met its match. Malco’s top-rated TSCM works better and faster than manual metal roofing shears. This versatile and portable attachment fits a drill or small impact driver you already own to make smooth cross, lengthwise, circular, and square outlet cuts in 30- to 24-gauge corrugated and common trapezoidal (box) pattern metal roofing panels. Its wide-opening jaws can operate at high or low speeds for complete control to follow a precise cut line. The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for tool clearance when navigating roof lines.
TurboShear® Asphalt Shingle (TSS1)
Slice through asphalt shingles in no time. Built to work with a drill or small impact driver, Malco’s TSS1 attachment makes quick, clean trim cuts in ½” asphalt shingles along a roof valley or tight left square cuts and circles to fit around utility outlets. An extra-wide jaw opening with a beveled lead-in tip on the upper blade accommodates multiple shingle layers, while the flat lower blade offers exceptional operator control. The shears are made with heat-treated carbon steel blades with solid carbide inserts for long-lasting life. The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for tool clearance when navigating roof lines. A pneumatic option is also available.
TurboShear® Automotive Heavy Duty (TSHD1)
Cut through sturdy 18-gauge automotive steel with minimal force and one-handed operation. The TSHD1 can attach to cordless/electric drills, small impact drivers, and air drills to smoothly follow a straight line or left curved or square patterns in tight spaces. A wide jaw opening navigates cuts in autobody panels and profiles, including layered metal, rocker panels, and plastic bumpers. The clamp collar allows the head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for additional flexibility. A pneumatic option is also available.
TurboXTools™ Door Skin Remover (DSR1)
Say goodbye to dust, dirt, or sparks from time-consuming grinding, as well as any risk of burn marks on the vehicle door frame. With a drill and the DSR1 attachment, remove damaged door skins of cars and light trucks right off the frame. A narrow working head, with spacer guide, cuts through the rounded edge of the door hem, as well as mild body lines and around corners. Lateral adjustability of the cutting blades ensures optimal performance in 20- to 22-gauge automotive steel. The clamp collar allows the head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for optimum tool clearance. A pneumatic option is also available.
TurboXTools™ Quarter Panel Hemming (QHT1)
Designed to replicate a hammer and dolly motion at high speed, with greater precision, less fatigue, and faster results, you can easily bend and close wheel arc flanges of replacement quarter panels with Malco’s QHT1 attachment and a cordless drill or impact driver. A rubber-cushioned anvil protects the panel from scratches and scuffs during every use. The clamp collar allows the head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for additional flexibility. You’ll surely appreciate this power-assisted upgrade that performs up to 80% faster than the traditional method. A pneumatic option is also available.
