FeaturesRatchet-action design of this ACSR Cutter provides maximum leverage with minimum effort. Forged, heat-treated, shear-type blades cut copper, aluminum and ACSR. Long steel handles have heavy vinyl grips for comfort and slip-resistance. Patented two-step ratchet mechanism requires fewer strokes per cut. Selectively-hardened blades and reduced hand force make it easier to cut ACSR.

Klein Tools is the result of one of those “happy accidents” that turn out to be revolutionary. Klein Tools famously got their start in 1857 when a linesman came to founder Matthias Klein to repair his broken pliers. Klein replaced the broken half and when the old half of the tool broke too, Klein forged a replacement for that, thus making the first Klein Linesman pliers. Since these humble beginnings, Klein Tools has grown and become one of the largest American made toolmakers and they’re a brand used by tradesmen, linesman and electricians all across America.
