Kett Tool Co. helps body shop owners, metal fabricators and bus, car and truck repair experts conserve materials with the double cutting action of the KD-442 Double-Cut Shears. When cutting cold rolled (C.R.) mild steel and stainless steel, the double cut action of the KD-442 transfers any distortion produced in cutting to a waste strip, leaving behind material edges that are not rough or burred to allow maximum use of sheet material.
The Kett KD-442 shears use a powerful five-amp pistol grip, 0-2,500 RPM variable-speed electric motor that effortlessly cuts through C.R. mild steel (up to 16 gauge), most grades of stainless to 18 gauge, sheet metal, spiral pipe, metal doors and metal studs – all at speeds of up to 170 inches per minute. The shears weigh five pounds and have close cutting blades that can cut a radius as small as seven inches. This makes the shears both portable for location usage and durable enough for daily shop operations. All shear heads are precision made in the U.S. featuring A2 tool steel blades for durability.
