Their independence from mains power means that battery-powered shears and nibblers are mainly used for vehicle construction, the installation of kitchens, airconditioning and roof coverings.
Their joint feature is their exceptionally easy manageability and the absence of a connecting power cable which experience shows to be very easily damaged by the sharp edges of cut sheet metal. The cutting speed corresponds to that of mains-operated machines, and, as a rule, they use the same cutting tool. The feed rate must be kept sufficiently slow to avoid that the stroke rate drops too much during cutting. Due to their relatively low power demand shears and nibblers can do with operating voltage of 9.6 volts which enhances their manageability.
