Burndy’s PatMDCut scissor-style cutting tool shipping March 2013
By Anthony Capkun
March 6, 2013 – Burndy welcomes the PatMDCut series to its family of cutters. These scissor-style cutting tools are built on the In-Line platform, and allow for both cutting and crimping using the appropriate attachment. Crimp jaw and cutter jaw assemblies—as well as replacement blade sets—are available separately. The blades on this tool are designed to cut an array of conductor materials, including copper, aluminum, ACSR and EHS guy strand. The cutter features a retractable blade guide, promising an “efficient” cut with one-handed operation. The PatMDCut cutting tools are available utilizing either the Li-Ion or Ni-MH battery power source.
