Ratchet Cable and ACSR Cutters

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

Greenlee, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, has introduced their complete line of high-performance ratchet cable and ACSR cutters with up to 35% reduction in peak energy when cutting copper in comparison to a manual cutter.

The line includes five cutters – three cable cutters and two ACSR cutters – and comes in both open-jaw and flip-top designs ideal for confined work areas. Together, the ratchet cutters provide a complete solution for cutting copper up to 600 MCM, aluminum up to 750 MCM and ACSR up to 336 MCM.

The precision ratcheting mechanism holds cable tight to allow for rapid advance cuts; the material-specific blade design gives clean cuts and robust durability; and the two-step ratchet mechanism enables fewer strokes per cut. Elongated handles give better leverage, and a quick-release lever allows mid-cut release.
