Turn your drill into a metal cutter

Malco TurboShear fits onto your drill to turn it into a cutter that easily makes cross cuts, lengthwise cuts and precise square or circular cuts in sheet metal.

04/06/2018

The versatile Malco TurboShear system fits onto your drill or drill / driver and allows you to make easy cross cuts, fast lengthwise cuts, and precise circular and square outlet cuts in large or small pattern corrugated metal roofing and common trapezoidal (box) pattern metal roofing panels.

The elongated blades with compact jaws create a steep 75-degree offset so that the drill is held at a nearly vertical approach when starting a cut. As these offset blades follow the rising angle of a corrugated or trapezoidal profile, the drill handle or battery pack has clearance to naturally tip downward and still clear the roofing panel surface.

Available in three models, a lightweight aluminium-cast shear head and compact moulded polymer drill clamp allow maximum portability and ease to go wherever the work is. The telescoping drill clamp adjusts to fit both length and width of all popular drill sizes including smaller bodied impact drivers.

The shears can operate at low or high speeds for maximum control when you need to follow a precise cut line. Heavy-duty gearing and beefy, hardened carbon steel blades combine to offer long service life in 30 to 24-gauge (0.31 – 0.61 mm) roofing panel metal.

A lateral blade adjustment capability ensures that optimum cutting performance and maneuverability can be maintained for the life of the blades. Replacement blades are also available and are easily installed on the job.

Optional spacers are stored on the clamps for large motor housings while the clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for optimum tool clearance when navigating profiles or to facilitate easy material flow.
