Cutter Bit is compatible with all impact drivers, offering the ultimate in on the job flexibility and faster-than-average cutting times 

Malco Products, one of the nation’s leading solution developers and manufacturers of a variety of high-quality tools for the HVAC and building construction trades, has launched new Hole Cutters with Impact Rated Cutter Bits (HC1/HC2) that are compatible with all impact drivers and drills, making them the Gold Standard in hole cutter versatility.

Unlike anything else on the market, Malco’s hole cutters feature a hex insert for ultimate flexibility for use on either an impact driver or a drill. Quickly install into the chuck of any corded or cordless drill as small as ¼” (6.35 mm) in just a few seconds — these cutter bits are highly durable for long-lasting quality you can trust. And, if used with an impact driver, trade professionals can expect faster-than-average cutting times, which means you can get the job done faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Malco’s impact rated cutter bits meet the 1-year life expectancy in 26-gauge metals (normal use) when used both in a drill and impact driver, and fit both Malco Sheet Metal Hole Cutters HC1, cutting 2” to 12” diameter circles and HC2, cutting 2” to 24” diameter circles:

  • HC1 Hole Cutter: adjustable for making 2 to 12” (51 to 305 mm) diameter holes.
  • HC2 Hole Cutter: adjustable for making 2 to 20” (51 to 508 mm) diameter holes.

With its lightweight aluminum frame and low-profile design, Malco’s new hole cutter bits are easy-to-carry and feature a mill-type cutting edge. The large flat allows for easy adjusting of the cutting-edge location simply by sliding the bit up or down, which also has the benefit of extending bit life. But when the cutter bit does wear down, it can be easily replaced so it can continue to be used for years and years to come!

“At Malco, our number one priority is to create high-quality products that help get the job done faster and more efficiently, and these new hole cutters and bits do just that,” said Rebecca Talbot, Malco’s vice president of marketing. “Our team’s innovative design makes this tool super portable and allows users to quickly switch to cutting holes with their impact driver, right on the spot. Plus, with the Malco name, they know they are using a product that is durable and built to last—something we are very proud of.”
