TruTool N 500


TruTool N 500

For cuts across edges and welding seams.

Powerful in four directions

The TruTool N 500 offers unique versatility. Since you can cut in four directions, even backwards, you can dismantle tanks and containers, and process coils and workpieces with bends of up to 90°. The machine is also well-suited to cutting high-tensile materials. The optimal weight/performance ratio of 8.8 lbs. against a sheet thickness of 0.2 in. is particularly impressive.

4 cutting directions

The machine can be turned through 360° in 4 steps of 90°.

Rectangular punch with flexibility for profiles

Ideal for work in hard-to-reach areas, for cuts across edges and weld seams.

Minimal force required

You work without feed force and, therefore, required force is reduced to a minimum.

Variable speed

The speed controller can be used to adjust the working speed to suit the specific cutting task.

4 cutting directions

With the TruTool N 500, you can even cut in reverse. Since you can pull the tool toward you horizontally, it is ideal for relief cuts. You can also move the nibbler vertically downward for tank dismantling. All of this is achieved with minimal force and no emissions.

Variable speed

The speed control is highly efficient for work with scribed lines or with a template. It is also a very suitable choice for frequent processing of radii and stainless steel. You can adapt the working speed to the cutting task and the electronic overload protection offers yet another notable benefit. It has a protective effect on the motor.

Perfect for processing stainless steel

The TruTool N 500 is well-suited to cutting high-tensile materials. Specifically designed punches and dies ensure perfect cuts.

Flat sheet

For cutting straight sheets and trimming them to length. For notches, as well as radial and interior cutouts.


For cutting profiles, cuts across edges and weld seams, as well as for dismantling tanks and containers.

Coil processing

For cutting coils. For relief cuts and sampling.
