Making crisp, straight cuts in asphalt shingles with a utility knife can be tricky in warm weather and downright tough when it's cold. The Ridgid Pneumatic Roofing Cutter is a mini recip saw that takes a hooked blade similar to the ones used in utility knives; the blade wraps the edge of the shingle and cuts on the pull stroke. Features include an overmolded grip, adjustable exhaust, and a swivel air fitting to prevent tangled hoses. The tool can be used on shingles, roll roofing, and roofing paper.
