Product Overview

The DEWALT DC490KA cordless shear is designed to slice through cold-rolled steel ranging from 28-Gauge to 18-Gauge with uncompromising speed and accuracy. It was specifically engineered for metalworkers, HVAC contractors and construction professionals who earn living fabricating materials. The tool is powered by an 18-Volt XRP NiCad battery that drives the hardened-steel blades at a metal-shearing 2,300 Strokes per Minute (SPM). As it slices through metal, it removes a 7/32 in. wide ribbon of waste material that curls up and out of the way of the cut line. The DC490KA is equipped with a 360° swiveling head that permits you to comfortably cut where at any angle or awkward position, in extremely tight quarters, and delivers a cutting radius as tight as 5-1/2 in. The shear, which weighs a comfortable 6.1 lbs., comes with two 18-Volt XRP extended-run NiCad batteries, a fast 1-hour charger, and blade wrench and storage case. It’s backed by a DEWALT 90-day money-back guarantee, full 1-year service contract, and 3-year limited warranty.

  • Head swivels 360° which allows user to access tight quarters while maintaining comfort

Customer Reviews

18-Volt Ni-Cad Cordless 18-Gauge Swivel Head Shear Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cordless I bought this to cut FRP cleanly, quickly and easily. It works fairly well. I think the corded versions probably work a little better but this does the trick and I don't have to drag out a cord for a job that already doesn't require one. If you already have 18volt equipment you get a battery with this so it adds one more to your set. The only issue is getting the right angle while cutting thick product like FRP.
