These cutters are designed for constant use in the most demanding applications. They feature heavy-duty side plates that keep jaws aligned for clean, quick cuts through reinforcing rod, wire mesh, guy strand and many other materials too tough for standard bolt cutters. Four sizes, all with steel handles and precision ground, drop-forged alloy tool steel jaws. Lever design creates 4,000 lbs. jaw pressure with 50 lbs. hand pressure. Handles have heavy vinyl grips for comfort and slip resistance.
