Milwaukee cable cutter simplifies the task

Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. has introduced a tool for cutting large diameter cable.

The M12 600 MCM Cable Cutter has a compact design and powerful cutting mechanism. It takes care of two cutting challenges: fitting the cutting tool in panels/boxes and generating enough force to get the job done.

“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,” said Corey Dickert, senior product manager, cordless for Milwaukee Electric Tool. “With an open jaw and a breakthrough powered ratcheting mechanism, Milwaukee delivers a tool that puts out more than 5,000 lbs. 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.
