Hot knife through butter
was using a saw with metal blade to cut 18 gauge steel facia panels. Way too loud. only reason I was doing this is my other shear didn't "cut it".. Ha Ha. This one goes through it literally like a hot knife through butter.

Shear cutter tolerances are loose, very loose
I purchased the shear refurbished. The first shear came and there was heavy gouging on the cutter housing as well as sloppy tolerances in the cutter head. I tried a first cut and the cause of the gouging was illuminated. The cut material was curling out of the cutter like a corkscrew, digging into the housing at the point of the gouging. It took heavy pressure to drive the cut and there was no cut control. The shear just chewed its way through the steel. I returned the shear for a replacement. Tyler Tool Customer service was polite and helpful, and put the replacement in the mail that day. When the new (refurbished) shear arrived two days later, I was disappointed to find that it had the exact same problem, and same symptom. Back it went to Tyler, this time for a refund, not a replacement.

I have used this tool before, purchased new from another retailer. It was fabulous, easy to use and control, powerful and precise. My guess is that there was a bad batch of cutter heads from the manufacturer (Milwaukee was purchased by TTI in Hong Kong a few years ago), and that they are getting rid of them as "refurbished". Tyler customer service was helpful at every step, and I will buy from them again, probably even a Milwaukee refurbished tool, but not this shear.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
