Milwaukee® Introduces Snips with 10X Longer Life

        MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its Hand Tool offering with the introduction of six new snips that are made with corrosion resistant metal to protect the tools from rust and deliver 10X longer life than the competition.

        “Not only do the new snips provide best-in-class durability, they are also designed to uphold the highest level of ease of use and safety,” says Tim Albrecht, Director of Product Marketing- Hand Tools for Milwaukee Tool Corporation.  “An exclusive spring and lock mechanism allows the user to open and close the snips with one hand, while thumb and forefinger slots allow the user to push through sheet metal with ease.  Additionally, the cutter heads feature sub-flush bolts to prevent the tool from getting hung up on sheet metal while cutting.”

        Backed by Milwaukee’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, each of the new tools is made with forged metal heads and machined precision for maximum tool strength and durability. Forged heads provide up to 10X the life of comparable cast heads.  Durable rubber grips add comfort and help protect the tool. 

        Available in multiple options for varying applications and user preference, the new offering includes Straight Cutting Aviation Snips, Left Cutting Aviation Snips, Right Cutting Aviation Snips, Straight Cutting Bulldog Snips, Right Cutting Right Angle Snips and Left Cutting Right Angle Snips.

        Dedicated to delivering advanced solutions to increase productivity, Milwaukee’s Hand Tool category will continue to grow and offer innovative products.
