    Standing Seam Notcher


    The Best Notching Tool for Standing Seam Metal Roofing

    The Swenson Shear Standing Seam Notcher is the ideal tool to cut through the ribs of the metal roofing panels with ease. Say goodbye to hand notchers! This tool creates the perfect cut through your standing seam ribs with little physical effort. It notches the standing seam ribs on both male and female sides of the metal panel in seconds and can accommodate panel from 12″-24″. It can be used for straight cuts as well as angle cuts and features a 29″ offset. The notcher comes with a custom set of dies of your choice. Additional dies can be purchased to accommodate other panel profiles. By running the sheet metal panel halfway through the notchers, you can notch just the ends for your leading and trailing edges. The notchers slide to the left and right depending on what side of the roof you’re going up. Setting up for notching an angle is as easy as locating the desired angle on the degree operator ruler on the machine and then shifting the notcher on the operator side to the correct pitch. The Standing Seam Notcher weighs 350 lbs and is 40″ in length.
