|Makes fast, safe, precise cuts in stone coated steel shingles, shakes and tile style roofing, including DECRA, METRO and GERARD brands, all season long. Compound leverage and a generous handle length reduce user cutting force up to 30% versus other guillotine style cutters that pose a challenge to even the most seasoned pros. The shingle, including lock seam, is cut in one easy, steady motion. The shearing action has a “wiping” effect on the shingle’s zinc coating that seals the cut edge to resist rust. A hardened steel blade and die offer reversible cutting edges for twice the cutting life, prior to sharpening. And the blade and die are also easily replaceable! With the blade lock-pin in place, this portable cutter is safe to transport and sets up virtually anywhere on the job site. The sturdy frame with two different length leg tubes provides the user with two working table height options. A large table surface allows sure-handed control and prevents damage to the work-piece. And the table’s “feed-thru” design also allows long angle cuts for roof hips and valleys.
