Milwaukee® Metal Cutting Solutions Expand With 45° Offset Snips

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its Hand Tool offering with the launch of four new 45° Offset Snip Solutions that deliver best-in-class cutting performance and durability. Built from the ground up, the new snips are an innovative solution for metalworking and mechanical professionals who48-22-4012 encounter directional cuts in ductwork or sheet metal and need to keep their hands away from the material.

Backed by Milwaukee’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, all Milwaukee® Snips are made with forged metal heads and hard chrome plating for maximum tool strength and durability. Forged heads provide up to 10X the life of comparable cast heads. 

Not only do the new snips provide best-in-class durability, they are also designed to uphold the highest level of safety and ease-of-use. An exclusive, patent-pending 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, and durable rubber grips add comfort and help protect the tool.      

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