I have the older version of that same model, only difference is my cutting deck is a little shorter. The longer deck gives you greater leverage but makes it more awkward to store. Outstanding tool, we use ours every single day.

Re: Bullet Pro Magnum Shear


I was just checking it out on youtube, looks real nice! I watched a video and the guy was cutting 3/4" oak with it. Can it really do that on a regular basis?

I have yet to cut 3/4 solids with mine, but it will do 5/8 13 ply engineered so it wouldn't surprise me.

Re: Bullet Pro Magnum Shear


It definetly looks like a time saver, and nice and clean too! Hmm, I will have to think about one of these for the next decent size floor job.

It literally pays for itself in a couple jobs. We put an empty box down to catch all of the "crumbs" and drag it with us as we progress along the floor. You cut right where you are working and dust free. There is an accessory fence that adjusts for any angle. The stock setup just does 90s and 45s. If you do a lot of larger format Lvt I would recommend the 20" version. For guys that do vct - it wil cut 6 pieces at a time....huge time saver on straight, long walls.

That thing looks sweet. It looks really good for flooring but I think it's biggest seller would be for fc siding. 0 dust and super long blade life, 10,000 cuts, that are perfectly clean and angles with the sharpest point you could hope for.

Yeah honestly I don't know why it hasn't caught on fire with the siding community.

Cuz it don't make noise? But if was doing even a decent amount of plank siding of any kind I'm thinking that would be one of my main tools and selling points. Not only do we not throw saw dust in the air all day cutting your siding we don't have a saw screaming outside your window every other minute either. Just wouldn't tell that would just make easier to hear the compressor and nail gun banging.

Re: Bullet Pro Magnum Shear


I have the magnum shear I-20, its excellent. they make a cheap version EZ shear, its a little heavy, and I would like to get a 9, or 13. Cutting bamboo chipped the blade to bits which a replacement blade was 220$ shrug. there is a chart they came out with for the janka scale with some woods not recommended for it. you cant cut a 16 lvt on diagonal with the 20 or the 2x2 carpet tiles, I guess thats why they make the 40. You would be a fool not to buy one of these, deciding on the size is the trick, I would go with the 13 for diagonal situations. At surfaces I asked them about 1/4 round cutter
