Compact and balanced design

Compact and balanced, the small body and ergonomic design improves handling and reduces fatigue. The slim barrel grip makes it easier to hold and control when performing precise cutting.

Variable speed dial makes it the ideal choice for stainless steel

Choose between 5 cutting blades

Easily cut through stainless steel or perform curved cuts in materials with thicknesses from 0.5 - 1.5 mm, straight cuts in sheet metal with thicknesses from 0.5 to 2.5 mm or spiral ducts up to 0.9 mm thick.

The SSH 6-A22 has a lock-on switch

Lock-on switch for precise cuts

A lock-on switch means the tool is always working without the need to hold down a button. This reduces operator arm-strain and allows the shearer to keep cutting when changing position or grip.

The SSH 6-A22 includes a clipper function for clear line of sight

Chip clipper for clear line of sight

A chip clipper removes excess material when performing multiple cuts. Two cutting guides, located on the front and side of the cutting head, help when you are making precise cuts.

Introducing the SSH 6-A22 cordless double cut shears

Why the need for cordless metal double cut shears?

Metal shears are widely used in professional trades that work with metal sheets, duct work or profile such as HVAC installation, electrical installation, drywall track cutting or industrial applications.

However, metal dust, debris, and sparks can be a challenge in tight spaces.  Additionally, the desired quality of the cut can often be difficult to achieve without the right tool.

The Hilti advantage

The SSH 6-A22 cordless double cut shear operates using 22V batteries and is ideal for fast-straight cuts, diagonal cuts, interior and exterior cut outs, curved cuts on flat metal sheets and spiral ducts. With a brushless motor and low weight, it is a balanced tool which is suitable for working for long periods, reducing fatigue and risk to the worker. 

Able to cut metal of up to 2.5 mm thickness, the SSH 6-A22 includes a chip clipper to remove excess material during the cutting process which makes it easier when making multiple cuts. With a 6-step speed control you select the optimal cutting speed for fast or precise cutting depending upon the needs of your application. 

This is especially important when you want:

  • Better results – because you have clean and precise cutting without material deformation or burring
  • Faster progress – because skilled metalworkers can adjust the tool to suit their most effective technique
  • Flexibility – because you can adjust the speed to suit your material and application

An optimized air-flow system in the SSH 6-A22 cools the double cut shear 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, and giving you peace of mind.
