Three speeds and many benefits: Knipex 95 32 320 cable cutter

Three performance levels, 320 mm long, makes work easier

Cutting cables of larger diameters is usually one of the less popular tasks amongst installers. Sawing is a lengthy process. Cable shears without transmission quickly reach the limits of manually applied actuating forces. The development of the Knipex three-stage cable cutter 95 32 320 puts work simplification at the top of the agenda. The Knipex cable cutter can cut through cables up to 600 mm² in diameter with small to moderate manual effort. Depending on the cable thickness, one of three performance levels and the associated cutter feed is selected. The sprocket drive holds the cutting edges in position when getting a firmer grip. This results in a consistently clean cut. After the wire is stripped, the ends can be connected without further processing thanks to the straight cut edges.

Forged and hardened using special tool steel.

Cable cutting is among the toughest challenges for electricians. The Knipex 95 32 320 cable cutter is built to last. Its cutting edges are sharp enough to cut through insulation cleanly. They are hard enough for multi-strand and single-strand wires with cross-sections up to 600 mm² without damage. The hardened cutting edges stay sharp longer.

Ergonomic efficiency: fixed handle with support, good grip, opening spring

Plenty of useful technology in a single tool weighing just 825 g and measuring 320 mm; the compact design of the Knipex 95 32 320 cable cutter make it ideal for confined spaces. For large cable cross sections, two-handed operation is an effective option. The three-speed ratchet mechanism offers a favourable grip position for all cable cross-sections.

Knipex special tools – saving time for busy tradesmen

In addition to the range of shears, Knipex also has other special tools that complement applications using shears. The selection ranges from universal stripping tools and special wrenches for control cabinets and shut-off devices to tools such as the cable cutter with three-stage ratchet mechanism shown here. Although these tools are very different, they have one thing in common: Knipex quality. Professionals who use tools a lot every day rely on a quality that enables them to work easily and safely and that can withstand many years of service. We produce our ratchet cable shears from high-quality, carefully selected tool steel and processing them with high precision on modern machine tools. All pliers from Knipex embody over 130 years of specialist expertise.

1st gear for powerful cutting

With the handles open a little, the sprocket drive moves forward one tooth per stroke. Ideal for tough materials and small hands. The narrow handle width permits two-handed operation.

2nd gear for comfortable slow-speed cutting.

With the handles moderately open, the sprocket drive moves forward two teeth per stroke. The sickle cutter can move forward more forcefully. The comfortable handle width also permits two-handed operation.

3rd gear for fast, easy cutting

With handles fully open, the sprocket drive moves forward three teeth per stroke. For fast work at full stroke.
