Ryobi 18-Volt One+ Cordless Bolt Cutters (Tool Only)
About this deal
Make sure the edges of the tool are sharp as blunt or worn edges need a lot more force to make an accurate cut
These tools work by pulling the rope into the jaws and trapping it. This makes a clean cut and results in no fanning. They are ideal for shearing wire rope. Look for a good place to grip the metal so the handles can move freely. Move the material as deep into the jaws of the blades as possible to maximize the tool’s cutting force. This also prevents the material from slipping out of the jaws as you apply pressure. Pull the handles together using controlled and deliberate action. Slowly apply more pressure until the blades cut through the material. Do not turn or twist the handles, as this could damage the blades or the jaws. Q. How do you sharpen bolt cutters? Center-cut bolt cutters feature blades that are beveled on both sides and are evenly spaced from each other. This is the most common type of jaw configuration and the only type we tested other than the powered all thread bolt cutter. When pressure is applied, the blades bear down on either end until they separate the material. Center-cut bolt cutters are ideal for cutting through cables, pipes, and metal rods.The manufacturer says the tool cuts up to ⅞-inch threaded bolts, and while we didn’t have any on hand to test, we think the DeWalt has enough cutting power to do the job. It features a forged steel head, multiple cutting blades, and steel handles with rubberized grips for control and comfort. A convenient carrying case provides storage for the cutter and a set of spare blades. Featuring an ergonomic design, the comfortable non-slip heat-treated textured rubber grip handles and center cut design reduce hand fatigue.
Whether the handles are short or long, handles must provide you with the necessary leverage to open the jaws so they grip onto and cut through metal with less effort. Clipper-cut bolt cutters feature an angle blade that runs to a flat side. The slight bevel on these blades creates high pressure on a single focal point, maximizing cutting power. Since they have a flat side, clipper-style bolt cutters are ideal for shearing off nails and making clean cuts through sheet metal.
With superior cutting action, industry-leading design, and utilizing smart PowerPivot™technology, the Crescent H.K. Porter 18-inch 0090MCP Bolt Cutter is the perfect metal cutting solution for industrial-style applications.
Bolt cutters vary in weight from about 2 pounds for smaller 8-inch cutters to around 8 pounds for larger 48-inch cutters. Cut Style Angled-cut bolt cutters feature a head angled between 25 and 30 degrees. This design makes it easier to position the tool’s head to make lower cuts. This style of bolt cutter can cut off nails and screws protruding from wood flush to the surface.
Made from durable heat-treated chrome-molybdenum steel, the blades cut through threaded bolts, nails, chains with a vengeance. Sturdy jaws provide extra gripping power without shifting or wobbling when closing around a bolt, nail, or chain link. You can expect maximized leverage and improved cutting power with less effort due to the longer handle, compound hinges, and precisely aligned blades.
