May 25, 2013 – Greenlee Utility has launched four new guillotine-style cutting heads for cutting cables and other materials. The SDG45 and SDG55 remote cutting heads are designed to cut ACSR cables and other materials, such as rebar, guy strand and ground rods; SDG85 and SDG105 heads are designed to cut large-diameter copper and aluminum cables. A battery-powered Gator version of the SDG105 is also available (ESG105LU), which features single-trigger operation and automatic retraction. “Guillotine-style heads are far safer than conventional, scissor-style cable cutters,” said Ryan Berg, senior product manager. “They also reduce egging and distorting cables, giving users cleaner, more accurate cuts.” Remote heads allow utility line workers to operate safely away from the cutting location. All four heads can be powered by the EHP700LU battery-powered hydraulic pump.
