Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price Had to install some new flashing around my chimney and needed a pair of straight cutters. These were priced decently and worked great. June 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Durable and do the job No problems, easy to use. Would recommend to friends February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best snips I've ever owned The snips work great. They are sharper and cut better than any snips I've ever owned. The only disappoint I have with them is that the latch to keep them closed when they are not in use doesn't work well. February 10, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Latch need to be redesigned. These cut great, feel solid, and are holding up fine after 3 months of daily use. I bought them, and a few other hand tools, since Milwaukee has made so many improvements to their line. However the latch pops open if bumped or dropped or looked at too hard. Having them open up in my tool bags just makes them a bit harder to get out. Next time I need a new pair of snips if this hasn't been redesigned I'll go back to another brand. December 13, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Totally Recommend it The snips work great for cutting any sheet metal or wires as necessary. They are great for installing ceiling tile tracks and since the tips are narrow, they get into hard to reach areas. The only thing is that I wish the locking mechanism would hold a little better. When I drop them in my tool box or touch them the wrong way, they spring open. Anyway, I think its a great product and comfortable compared to Wiss. January 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by it works Cut thru flooring transition strips beautifully without dulling the blade. January 13, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth The money. Bought these top do Demo Work. tried many different brands. Milwaukee Out Perform Them All. Easy on the Hand Spring Action steady to the grip. Now Everyone on my job site wants to borrow them. Keep telling them they are very affordable to get their own. November 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Cutters Just what I needed for the job of cutting metal sheets. November 4, 2014
