Milwaukee® Redefines Productivity for Wire Trades with Revolutionary New Cable Cutter
“Due to the cost of most cordless options, users have been forced to use hand tools that require a tremendous amount of force and can be extremely awkward to use in crowded panels,” says Corey Dickert, Sr. Product Manager, Cordless for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. “With an open jaw and a breakthrough powered ratcheting mechanism, Milwaukee® delivers a tool that puts out over 5,000 pounds of force, fits into tight spaces, and simplifies one of the most difficult jobs an electrician, datacomm, utility, or service contractor faces.”
With a 2-Speed gear case, the M12™ 600 MCM Cable Cutter delivers the power necessary to cut large cable, but also enables the user to switch into high speed and slice quickly through more frequent wires that are approximately 4/0 and lower. The M12™ 600 MCM Cable Cutter can cut through several wire types commonly encountered by the user such as Copper, Aluminum, SER Cables, G-Type, Paired Communication Cable, and Underground Cable. With up to a 600 MCM copper and 750 MCM aluminum capacity, the tool is applicable to virtually all large commercial projects, but has a compact size that will be ideal for service trades.
In addition, the tool will include the new Milwaukee® 48-44-0410 Cable Cutter Blade, which can also be purchased separately as a replacement, and the multi-voltage charger to allow users to charge all M12™ and M18™ batteries with one charger.
Powered by revolutionary M12™ RED LITHIUM™ Battery technology*, the new cable cutter can deliver up to 150 cuts of 500 MCM copper per charge and is compatible with the entire M12™ System, now offering over 40 cordless Lithium-Ion products. The M12™ platform is the largest sub-compact system in the industry, offering innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability.
