Milwaukee M12 FUEL 16 Gauge Nibbler

The Milwaukee M12 FUEL 16-Gauge Nibbler helps you ditch the jobsite shears for something more versatile

Whether you’re in HVAC, roofing, or just general metalwork, metal cutting is an inevitable part of the job. In most cases, common construction shears can only make straight cuts, making it difficult to maneuver in uniquely shaped or compact spaces. Milwaukee designed the 2476-20 M12 FUEL 16-Gauge Nibbler to completely avoid this problem. The tool gives you great versatility when cutting corrugated cardboard or sheet metal.

Milwaukee M12 Fuel 16 Gauge Nibbler – The Big Deal

Milwaukee claims the M12 16-gauge nibbler has the same cutting capacity as its 18V competitors. It does this while losing up to 25% of the weight. It has the ability to cut up to seven feet per minute when equipped with an M12 RedLithium XC 4.0 battery.

With more versatility than shears, the M12 nibbler can make unique cuts in spiral conduit, sheet metal and corrugated metal. You are not limited to straight cuts with this tool. It also complements curved and 90 degree cuts. Nibblers, including the Milwaukee 2476-20, use a punch and die system to take small cuts out of metal. This type of material removal gives you much more control over the shape and path of your cut.

As the first cordless nibbler in the M12 line, this tool uses M12 batteries and a brushless motor to deliver power in heavy-duty applications. It is designed for 18 gauge stainless steel and 12 gauge aluminum. It can also cut 16 gauge mild steel, even with its compact and lightweight design.
