November 16, 2022 | By Staff

The new tool from Greenlee, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, gives the user total operational control and provides easier access to hard-to-reach areas

Greenlee, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces 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 handheld 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 Greenlee ES20LXR Overhead Remote Cable Cutter is our latest tool solution designed to improve the safety of high voltage workers,” said Ryan Berg, director of product management, Greenlee for Emerson. “This tool not only keeps users in the safe zone while cutting, its lightweight design and rotating head put less strain on the body to help reduce user fatigue.”


The 2.0Ah 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.

The ES20LXR is the latest tool in Greenlee’s complete line of remote cable cutters for the high voltage industry. Learn more by visiting Greenlee.com/RemoteCutter. Find a local Greenlee distributor by visiting Greenlee.com/where-to-buy. For more information about Greenlee, visit Greenlee.com.
