By Anthony Capkun
October 15, 2014 – Irwin Tools has expanded the Vise-Grip category with a variety of new cutting pliers promising “superior comfort, durability and cutting power”.
The line features Max Leverage diagonal cutting pliers and end cutting pliers, which are equipped with PowerSlot Technology “for twice the cutting power and half the effort”, and the ErgoMulti long-nose pliers, which are designed with an angled head for reduced wrist strain. The complete range of new products also includes lineman’s pliers, long-nose and bent-nose pliers, and a patented Performance Lanyard system (prevents accidental drops when working in elevated conditions).
All the new cutting pliers feature induction-hardened cutting edges durable enough to cut ACSR, nails, screws and piano wire. The pliers are specially coated for rust resistance and longer life, and feature a lifetime guarantee. All of the cutting pliers also feature 3-Zone Comfort Grips with three moulded layers in the handle for enhanced comfort.
