The Model 64 Hip & Valley Roofing Shear by Swenson Shear with its 64″ blade is ideal for shearing heavy gauge exposed-fastener panels, with the ability to shear straight at 90° and up to a 9/12 valley cut. The custom blades match any panel profile, providing a clean cut, eliminating burred edges and flying metal. The shear is transportable and weighs around 160 lbs.

The Model 64 Hip & Valley Roofing Shear features an interchangeable blade to accommodate any manufacturer’s panel profile. Separate blades will be needed for each blade profile or to achieve various gable angles. The recommended maximum gauge thickness is 24. Shearing panels thicker than 24ga may increase wearing of blades.

*In order to achieve and angled cut (gable) or accommodate multiple panel profiles, the purchase of an additional blade set is required.

Common Blades:

Straight Blade: Will shear straight at 90° and up to 2/12 gable

4/12 Gable: Achieve between 3/12 – 5/12 gable cuts, 4/12 valley* cuts

7/12 Gable: Achieve between 6/12 – 8/12 gable cuts, 7/12* valley cuts

*Because Valley cuts will be exposed, it is recommended that a separate blade be used for each valley angle

    We knew this thing was going to be big but we were a little shocked when we saw this thing on the pallet for the first time. It’s a big hunk of steel and it’s quality is immediately apparent. It’s a two man job to operate. This is probably the only time in 20 years of cutting corrugated steel that I can truly say we actually had fun doing it! Watch the instructional videos though because it does require tuning after you make so many dozens of cuts. It’s very easy and satisfying to operate and it’s surprisingly accurate. It’s way more efficient and clean than cutting with electric shears, nibblers, or circular saws.
