If you are trying to pick out your next cable cutter we have compiled an easy to use guide that should help you out. Grab your cables and chains and let’s get ready for some chopping!

What Are Some Different Types Of Wire Cutters?

Let’s get started talking about some of your different choices. There are a lot of different varieties of wire cutters that will serve different functions. These can vary from light-duty Fixed Jaw Cable Cutters and easily portable Pocket Cable Cutters to stationary Bench Cutters.

Of course, your ultimate decision on which wire cutter you are going to use is going to mostly be based on what you are going to be chopping up. If you are just looking to cut some soft metal with a rubber cover, you probably don’t need to invest in a bolt cutter.

Which Wire Cutters Are Good For Heavy Duty Applications?

If you are looking to cut some heavy materials, you have a few different options. Heavy Duty Wire Rope Cutters have a pretty obvious name that doesn’t leave much to the imagination. These are great for cutting things like piano wires, aircraft cables, and steel-reinforced cables. Bolt Cutters are another great choice for bolts and chains. Our Bolt Cutters are excellent for hot line cutting.

Some Of Our Heavy Duty Cutters:

  • Bolt Cutters
  • ACSR Cutters
  • Wire Rope Bench Cutters
  • Heavy Duty Chain Cutters
  • Heavy Duty Wire Rope Cutters

Which Wire Cutters Are Best For Less Heavy Duty Jobs?

Now that we’ve talked about heavy-duty cutters, let’s shift our focus to a few other cutters that are available. Sometimes you don’t need to cut up thick chains or aircraft wires. For your “around the house” needs and even lighter work applications, you may be looking for something a little less power. If you are cutting up soft cables with rubber covers, you may want to think about a Fixed Jaw Cable Cutter. Replaceable Jaw Cable Cutters will give you a nice clean cut on softer, non-steel cables.

Some Of Our Light Duty Wire Cutters:

  • Fixed Jaw Cable Cutters
  • Replaceable Jaw Cable Cutters

Now that we have discussed both heavy-duty cutters and lighter duty cutters, let’s talk about a few other wire rope cutters with special features.
