TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS DRILL MOUNTED NIBBLER

The Original Biter comes with a 2″ cutting head which is perfect for every-day cutting like trimming flashing, removing rusted sheet metal from a fender, fitting laminate, or cutting sheet plastic. For those cuts that are just out of reach, pop on the Long Dog Head. A full 4″ long, the Long Dog makes access easy to hard-to-reach places such as inside a fender to install marker lights, awkward angles on the dash to install gauges or retrofitting ductwork hidden inside a ceiling. The Long Dog features the same 360° turning radius as the original Bad Dog Biter head.
