Greenlee’s ES1000 comes with a 2 1/8-in. diameter blade opening, making it suitable for cutting jacketed underground cables. The cable cutter is equipped with a Forward/Reverse lever so, should you change your mind about the cable you’re cutting, you simply shift the lever to fully open the blades. The precision-ground blades are extra thick, meaning they shouldn’t flex during a cut. Greenlee says the ES1000’s light weight (7.5 lb) and small size (14 3/4-in. long) makes it easy to store on a truck, carry to the jobsite, and operate in tight spaces. The cutter uses a 14.4V battery that executes about 35 cuts in 1000 kcmil copper per charge (the battery itself takes about an hour to recharge). Each tool includes two batteries, a moulded carrying case and the choice of 120V or 230V charger. (Appeared EBMag June/July 2010, Products)
