Ratchet Wire Rope Cutter
These cutters are becoming more and more popular, especially with engineers who appreciate the ability to trim off wire ropes in hard to access places.
For instance it is easy to cut through the excess of a large diameter wire rope from a counterweight cradle by squeezing just one hand between obstructing beams. It would be impossible to achieve this with large traditional wire rope cutters.
Using the ratchet principle these cutters can cut through wire ropes between 4-10 mm Ø.
Very little effort is required and as the tool is operated single handed it is a great safety feature when working at height.
Please Note: Every cutter is tested once after manufacture. This will show as a slight mark on the blade.
