The most powerful cordless slitting shears

The TruTool C 250 Li-ion rechargeable battery 18 V machines are the first slitting shears with rechargeable battery, which cordlessly cut sheet thicknesses of 2.5 mm in mild steel and 1.5 mm in stainless steel. You can cut chips single-handed at any time and pull the machine out of the workpiece with the integrated chip clipper that can be operated by one hand. Excellent for notching work and interior cutouts. The 18 V battery provides an above-average runtime. For example, with the 2 Ah rechargeable battery you can therefore cut up to 50 meters in mild steel and a sheet thickness of 1.5 mm.

For comfortable operation

A soft grip ensures low-vibration machine control. The machine is thereby extremely compact and light.

Chip clipper for single-handed operation

Chips can be easily cut with one hand at the touch of a button. Perfect for interior cutouts and notches.

Uniquely powerful

The first slitting shears with rechargeable battery for cutting mild steel up to 2.5 mm and stainless steel up to 1.5 mm.

Battery and charger
Battery technology

Individual electronic cell monitoring in the machine and in the charger protects the battery against overload, overheating, and deep discharge. The robust battery cells have a low energy drop and always remain cool. A microprocessor analyzes the battery data and controls an optimal charge and discharge process. The result is high power combined with a long service life for the battery. You can therefore work almost non-stop. The 2 Ah and 4 Ah rechargeable batteries only require 10 - 30 minutes to be charged to 80%.

For any application

We offer 5 different cutters: The CR cutter is ideal for processing stainless steel. The curve cutter cuts with excellent contouring.
