Tested per OSHA & ASTM F711

Easier Operation
High-performance design incorporates Delrin plastic rollers and a two-piece operating rod. Roller mechanism travels smoothly along main Epoxiglas® pole. Linked through the roller support unit, the hinged operating rod and larger Epoxiglas pole reinforce each other.

These Ratchet Cable Cutters meet OSHA Electrical Rating subpart V-section 1926.951 (d).

Insulated support pole is Chance orange 1-1/2"-diameter Epoxiglas with Plastisol butt cap, operating shaft is 3/8"-diameter solid fiberglass rod, and lever handle is 1"-diameter Epoxiglas with rubber cushion grip.

Four standard models offer practical 6-foot or 8-foot lengths fitted with choice of cutter heads for soft wire or ACSR. Shear-type steel blades cut without deforming cable. Heads are interchangeable for field changeouts.
