These easy-to-spot, solid color coded grips are permanently fitted over full-length steel Malco Max2000 Aviation Snips now feature all-new, molded thermoplastic grips. handle shafts and offer strength, comfort and sure handling.
A narrower grip opening accommodates large or small hands to maximize the powerful leverage of compound handle-to-head linkage. A new one-hand-operation, ambidextrous latch is another welcome handle change to all Max2000 snips and features an all-metal design that will not loosen or hang up with repetitive use.
Original Max2000 blade designs remain unchanged and retain the same generous cutting lengths. Max2000 hardened alloy steel blades with precision-ground cutting edges ensure a minimal force cut and maximum service life. Blade tips are ground to a sharp point to allow flush cuts into corners and access in low clearance areas or into small starter holes. Sleek head and handle styling offer superior material flow and maximum maneuverability.
Max2000 Lefts, Rights, Combinations, and snub nose Bulldog Notching models, feature serrated lower jaws for solid gripping power in sheet metals and plastics.
Versatile Max2000 Offset models feature a serrated upper jaw of hardened alloy steel and a forged-steel lower jaw to produce a strong, sharply defined cutting edge for superior offset maneuverability and cutting performance.
An all-new Max2000 Double Cut Snip features hardened alloy steel blades. Precision-ground cutting edges held to tight tolerances ensure consistent performance. A curved cutting edge on the center jaw reduces cutting force, and large relief grinds on all jaws minimize drag. The Max Double Cut feeds smoothly, cuts cleanly without surface distortion, and easily navigates metal seams encountered in round metal duct and stove pipe. A self-starting point on the center jaw also makes short work of blind cuts.
All Max2000 Snips feature permanent riveted handles, full-length steel handle shafts, extra long-life compression springs and secure, fast-adjusting, long-life pivot bolts with locking nuts and pressure washers. And all Max2000 snips are rated for cutting vinyl, .062 (1.57 mm) aluminum, .054 (1.37 mm) copper, 18-gauge (1.37 mm) galvanized steel, 18-gauge (1.22 mm) mild steel and 20-gauge (0.97 mm) stainless steel as well as layered metals and seams including “S” cleats.
