Greenlee® Introduces High-Performance Ratchet Cable and ACSR Cutters

March 15, 2022

Greenlee, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces their complete line of high-performance Ratchet Cable and ACSR Cutters with up to 35% reduction in peak energy when cutting copper in comparison to a manual cutter.

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

The precision ratcheting mechanism holds cable tight to allow for rapid advance cuts; material-specific blade design gives clean cuts and robust durability; and the two-step ratchet mechanism enables fewer strokes per cut. Elongated handles give better leverage and a quick release lever allows mid-cut release.

“Our line of ratchet cutters are designed with performance in mind, giving maximum leverage with minimum effort. Eliminating strokes per cut lets you work faster, while putting less strain on the body,” said Ryan Berg, director of product management, Greenlee for Emerson.
