Had a couple. Only good for about 1/2 roll of wire, then the cutters break. At least on the ones I had.

I currently use the Milwaukee shear, but I am not in the cage building business and not cutting multiple rolls of wire.

This is the model I have in my shop. I am not a cage builder but I use this thing prolly twice a week and I've had the same one for over 3 years, I have had to replace the jaws once and they are getting close to needing replaced again. They go on sale all of the time for $35 replacement jaws are about $12 i think.

And this is the shear I keep on my truck. It chucks into my cordless drill and cuts like beast. Especially usefull on triangle gable end vents!!

That malco turboshear will cut hardware cloth on any angle. makes triangle vents cake. no more trimming to fit with side cuts. just cut the wire to length, tack into place and cut the angles in place.

You can make regular diagonal cutters into flush cut by carefully grinding down the back of the cutter until bevel is gone. Keep the steel cool by dipping it or just go real slow so you don't loose the temper in the steel. I could have purchased a set for flush cutting but I was too cheap and just modified a spare pair that I had.
