Remote Cable Cutter for High-Voltage Work 

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

Greenlee, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, has introduced the ES20LXR Overhead Remote Cable Cutter developed in conjunction with utility professionals to help “remove the target” in high-voltage cutting applications.

Allowing unprecedented access to hard-to-reach overhead areas, the ES20LXR weighs less than 5 pounds with battery, has a 350-degree rotating head and is designed to give the user total operational control while cutting hard metals in utility distribution environments.

A universal remote with hand-held and remote usage settings is compatible with all Greenlee remote tools. Visual indicators provide tool status with forward-stop-reverse at any point, and the patented trigger jacket helps secure the tool with universal spline connection to the hot stick.

The 2.0-Ah Makita battery in the ES20LXR charges in under 25 minutes, provides more cycles per charge and pairs with the Greenlee Link mobile app for performance tracking.
