Three speeds and many benefits: Knipex 95 36 320 VDE cable cutter

Three performance levels, 320 mm long, makes work much 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. That is why reduced workload was placed at the top of the agenda when the Knipex three-stage cable cutter 95 36 320 was developed. The Knipex cable cutter can cut through cables up to 600 mm² in diameter and requires only modest 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. The user can continue cutting at exactly the same point. 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 36 320 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.

VDE-tested fixed handle with support, good grip, opening spring

When cutting large cable cross sections, two-handed operation of the Knipex 95 36 320 cable cutter is an effective option. The three-speed ratchet mechanism offers a favourable grip position for all cable cross-sections. The compact design of the Knipex 95 36 320 cable cutter make it ideal for use in confined spaces.
