18-Volt Cordless 18-Gauge Swivel Head and Shear (Tool-Only) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just good for flat tin Its good for cutting flat tin but doesn't work good for ribbed tin and that's what I needed it for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewalt 18-VOLT CORDLESS 18 GAUGE SWIVEL HEAD AND SHEAR (TOOL ONLY) This Dewalt shear is a great tool for flat metal only. I plan to return this item due to it not performing with AG metal roofing. The AG metal roofing has a 3/4" ridge and the Dewalt shear is not the tool for this project. I'm going to purchase the Dewalt nibbler for cutting the AG metal roofing and hopefully this tool will be an addition to my tool chest.
