Klein Open Jaw Cable Cutter

Front loading jaws are designed to work in tight spaces 
October 29, 2013 (Lincolnshire, IL) – Klein Tools, for professionals since 1857, introduces the Open Jaw Cable Cutter, a ratcheting cable cutter with front loading jaws that easily wrap around cable in confined spaces.
The Open Jaw Cable Cutter (Cat. No. 63711) with a high-leverage ratchet mechanism allows for single handed cutting of 600 MCM Copper and 750 MCM Aluminum without leaving burrs or sharp edges.  It can also cut 1-1/8” communication cable. This cable cutter features a spring release lever that quickly resets the blades between cuts.  Plastic covered handles with hand guards provide comfort and a firm grip.
“Klein Tools’ new Open Jaw Cable Cutter offers the best of both worlds,” said Klein Tools product manager Ben Bainter. “It has the open jaw design of traditional “lopper” cable cutters as well as the compactness of ratcheting cable cutters.” 
NOTE:  Not designed for cutting steel or ACSR.
