Hobbyists, contractors, those who work in construction and a wide selection of other users will know how essential having a good cable cutters to hand is. Read More...

Cables are often very thick and made from heavy-duty materials such as copper and PVC so it’s often impossible to cut them open without that extra power that cable cutters provide.

Hand Cable Cutters

Generally speaking, a cable cutter refers to the manual kind that’s portable and commonly used on different types of cable including coaxial cable. These cutters are either non-ratcheting or ratchet cable cutters and, because they are manual, they are limited to certain types of cables.

Cable Cutter Machines

For a more heavy duty wire cutters, a cable cutters machine is recommended. These are ideal for high volume industry operations and while most machines will cut through a wide variation of different cables, only a few machines will cut through all wires.

Cable cutting machines use different types of motors and power to ensure a cutting capacity that cannot be achieved with a hand cable cutters. When it comes to size and cutting capability, things can massively vary as some are portable and small in size whilst others are bulky but can cater to production line type processes.
