Introducing the SPN 6-A22 Nibbler

Why should you choose a metal nibbler?

Many professionals in the building envelope, interior finishing, metalworking or HVAC trades don't give nibblers enough importance due to their reputation as only corded or pneumatic tools.

Using a sharp punch which, with the help of a die, moves in an upward and downward motion, nibblers give a precise and flawless cut that hand snips or a plasma cutter can't match.

Bringing with it cordless freedom, the SPN 6-A22 nibbler from Hilti overcomes these challenges and is capable of precisely and efficiently slicing through metal thanks to a powerful cutting mechanism and 22V battery platform.

The Hilti advantage

The SPN 6-A22 cordless nibbler combines low weight with a brushless motor giving you a balanced tool that is suitable for working for long periods, reducing fatigue and risk to the worker. 

Ideal for flat metal or corrugated sheet, trapezoidal or C, L and U profiles, it includes a 6-step speed control letting you easily cut through stainless and carbon steel, aluminum or brass of up to 2.0 mm in thickness depending on the needs of your application.

Especially important for precise template cutting or fast straight cuts, the SPN 6-A22 offers you:

  • Precise cutting - because you can follow templates or cutting lines
  • Better results – because you have precise control of the punch and die
  • Faster progress – because you can adjust the tool to suit your most effective technique
  • Flexibility – because you can adjust the speed to suit your material and application

The SPN 6-A22 uses an optimized air-flow system to cool the power tool and the electronics inside, resulting in increased service life. As you'd expect, all Hilti cordless tools come with 2 years of wear-and-tear coverage and, if your tool does break, we’ll repair it within 3 days – all at no cost, giving you peace of mind.
