A heavy Workhorse

March 14, 2011
from Southwestern Virginia
My crew had a job installing nearly 8,000 sq ft of carpet tile in a commercial office building. Because of the office schedule, installation was going to be sporadic with period of working a few days on the job, then off for a couple of days, which made rental of this tool a hassle. We were using 24"x24" premium carpet tiles with a thick vinyl backing that were a pain to cut with a utility knife. There were also a lot of butt joints that had to be cut and needed to be perfect. A shear was the only way to do it.
This shear is a beast. Once you have it on the job and set up at a workstation, it can produce dead straight and dead square cuts all day long perfectly. It is the only way to install large carpet tiles. Because of the weight I probably wouldn't use it on regular VCT jobs (there are smaller, cheaper shears for that) but for large carpet tile it is THE tool.
