Example, metal cutting and wood type blades that are common mount or is it proprietary to only this roofing cutter blade?
Seems this would be a dual use if the blades will fit.

Answer: 
I build Hinkley Boats and yes I use Air blades in this tool. With that said, do not over-tighten the blade because it will want to get stuck. Keep it snug but do not overtighten.

Customer Reviews

Pneumatic Roofing Cutter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not good!! thought this would be good for trimming shingles on the edge of the roof after they are all laid. Not the case. does not have the power to do even 2 shingles at a time. I had the architectural kind and it had trouble getting through the double layer. It would be good for 3 tab and only one at a time. I'm going to return it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool Great tool, why didnt someone come up with this sooner. I always thought there should be an easier way to cut shingles. Nice straight smooth cuts, very professional. Best of all no more cut fingers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money When I started looking at this tool I thought the price was too high and had a lot of trouble justifying the purchase. Honestly, what pushed it over the top was that it's pretty cool (and let's face it, that goes a long way in tools). So glad I did. I'm running it on a 6 gallon pancake compressor at 90psi and cut each shingle as I install it as opposed to trying to cut the whole length of the roof at the end. Pay attention to the factory rep's statement below- it works just fine on the double layer portion as long as you let the tool do the work and not force it. It works well when you raise the angle of the tool and let it run along the drip edge for a perfect cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT tool. This tool is awesome. Don't know why I didn't get this sooner. Cuts rolled roofing with such ease. I use the other blades to make so many cuts on other materials as well so can be very versatile as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool This tool made my job really easy. It worked very well, unlike anything I've used before. It saved me a lot of time and headache.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roofing cutter I recently purchased this product because I was getting tired of cutting shingles in cold weather with a hooked blade in a utility knife. I had the same problem as the customer in the first review, until I realized that I need to let the tool work like the manufacturer states. It works best when you pull lightly on it. So far I love the tool, and I will be buying some more for the crew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked great really saved time. well worth the money! Never used Ridgid before but will for now on!
Date published: 2012-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was twenty-seven degrees out this morning... ...when I went out to throw some shingles on the house and this thing (just bought it today) worked amazingly well! Anyone that does roofs knows it is a little bit more difficult in colder temperatures, cutting those architectural shingles and this...is a game changer. It outperformed my expectations. I was a little bit hesitant, reading the reviews, because I use a portable (pancake) compressor and some of the reviews suggested a higher volume would be necessary but, it worked VERY well...just taking my time and allowing it to do the work. That being said, it took a little getting used to and it is VERY sharp...so, be careful!
