Simplify cable cutting with the one cordless tool that fits comfortably in crowded panels and generates 5,000 pounds of force. With an open jaw, breakthrough powered ratcheting mechanism and superior blade geometry, the 600 MCM Cable Cutter fits into tight spaces and cuts effortlessly through large-diameter cable, leaving a clean, installation-ready cut. The compact size and scissor-style jaws enable cutting in crowded panels without looping, ratcheting or long arms. Ideal for electricians, datacomm, utility or service contractors or demolition crews, this cable cutter with 2-speed gear case delivers the power needed to cut large-diameter cable, and then switches into high speed to slice quickly through a variety of smaller and more common wire types. Powered by the revolutionary 12-volt REDLITHIUMTM Battery (sold separately), this new cable cutter can deliver up to 150 cuts of 500 MCM copper per charge. A built-in LED light illuminates the line of cut.
