Greenlee ratchet cable and ACSR cutters

April 11, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

April 11, 2022 – Greenlee says its line of ratchet cable and ACSR (aluminum conductor steel-reinforced cable) cutters provide up up to a 35% reduction “in peak energy when cutting copper in comparison to a manual cutter”.

The line includes five cutters—three cable and two ACSR—and comes in both open jaw and flip-top designs for confined work areas. Together the ratchet cutters provide a solution for cutting copper up to 600 MCM, aluminum up to 750 MCM, and ACSR up to 336 MCM.

The ratcheting mechanism holds cable tight to allow for rapid advance cuts, says Greenlee, “while material-specific blade design gives clean cuts and robust durability”. Elongated handles, meantime, promise better leverage, and a quick release lever allows mid-cut release.

Greenlee is a member of Emerson’s professional tools business.
