Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electric shears Works great! Cuts through the metal quickly and is light weight. September 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall good product this a great tool. I have been beating on this cutting panels off of old chevelles and the rust or clean metal cuts great its a couple of years old and broke the cutting tip I forced it to go in a coner and with it binding then it hit weld and snap, great tool!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by a little disappointing I was disappointed in the ability to handle even minor fluctuations in material. We had trouble with 26 & 29 gauge steel unless you were cutting in a straight line. I was debating between this and a nibbler I think I picked the wrong tool. May 14, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good and bad i am using this to cut pro panel 29 gauge and this is a nice cutter but it leaves a scratch mark on the tin you are cutting. So i really do not like that part of it as i needed something this a cleaner cut but for the parts that will be covered it is fine December 20, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What a power horse Dewalt is a well designed product in function, it has enough horse power to get the job done. July 23, 2011
