Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by does the job ++++ been roofing for 30+ years. getting where cutting the edge of shingles and roll roofing flush is little bit harder than it use to be. this tool is perfect for that. really easy to use and cuts straight as a arrow. sill cut two dimensional shingles stacked on top of each other, not with lighting speed, but will cut them with no problems. basically what you have is a air saw with a designed blade for cutting roofing material. a quality air saw is going to cost the price of this saw so even if you only use it as a air saw your still ahead of the game, but it will do the job it is sold for. again, your not going to cut though shingles with lighting speed, like a hot knife though butter, but it will do the job with reasonable speed. glad i finally bought it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 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! June 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 14, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value I actually use this tool as an air saw. It works really well cutting fiberglass. I like that you can turn the blow-air in any direction you need and the allen wrench built in on the handle is a great feature! Good Product! July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! November 21, 2013
