MADI has introduced the Safety BrushBlade, which combines two tools into one and helps lineworkers decrease outages, minimize open neutrals and bad connections, and create significant savings by brushing conductors properly. The two tools are a knife and an integrated wire brush.
The wire brush helps clean conductors to make better connections and covers conductors up to 1000 MCM. This covers most conductors, and the wire brush is easily replaceable. Not only is it more efficient, but it is significantly safer than knives currently available, according to the company. The Safety BrushBlade is safe because the blade can be closed when not in use, locks in the open position to prevent accidental closing, has a blunt tip and offers a no-cut blade design.
