Works as advertised Dec 28 2011

I am a professional carpenter/remodeler and have done some metal roofs before, but never one with hips and valleys. This was the first metal nibbler I have owned, so I can't compare it to others, but it worked well on the first job. I bought it for the price, but the quality has been beyond my expectations. I used it cutting metal roofing sheets on angles for hips and valleys. It sometimes gets hung up in the ridges of the sheet, but some of that may be the operator. It cuts straight and fast. I am well satisfied. A very good product for the money.

Like it so far April 4 2012

This is my 1st nibbler. I have only used it a little, but I like it so far. This doesn't cut, it punches, & seems a little hard to keep a straight line but probably just takes getting used to.

Follow-up : After several months of use this is a very good tool & works well.

YEP after even more months, still works good. For the record: I have cut 3 - 29 gauge sheets of steel roofing at 1 time with it.

Buy it! you will not be disappointed June 15 2013

I bought this to cut out the vents in my skirting on my double wide mobile. To my surprise when I received the skirting the sheets were a bit larger than I had planed. Well as luck would have it the tool arrived the day before. ( shipped on time ) I made the first rip cut of 16 feet and by the time I got to the end of the sheet I was a pro. I ended up cutting over 270 feet with this tool with no problems. Material I was cutting, ( Champion's ultra panels). It cut like butter.
Cutting out the vents took a little planning. I used a step bit in all four corners inserted the tool and was the easiest to do with the skirting installed. I do recommend that you cut every thing in the same area as there was a lot of little half moon chips.. picked those up with a roller magnet. Did the whole project in about 6 hours.
I looked at all the nibblers on line and for the price of this tool I am very impressed. great amperage, speed of cutting, cuts clean and very accurate. I have no issues. Wished that I would have purchased years ago. No more saw blades or cut off wheels for me. 5 star is my rating. Note: I have been in the trades for over 35 years and love a great tool!

We put metal roofs on 4 homes this spring. Well worth the $$$$$.
Just need to do all your cutting in an area easy to clean the small pieces up.
