High leverage diagonal cutters for hard constant use

Reliable helpers for professional users: tough and strong

Thanks to their high cutting capacity and indestructible strength, the Knipex 74 12 180 high leverage diagonal cutters are highly valued especially by craftsmen, and therefore in great demand.

These high leverage diagonal cutters are also often used in the motor trade, on the building site and in industry. They are also ideal as constant companion in mobile applications, because despite their compact size, they are still able to cut hard materials effortlessly. At just 180 mm long, the Knipex 74 12 180 fits in most work bags and in almost any toolbox.

Low weight, optimum ergonomics and geometry: a 20 % energy saving

Compared to conventional diagonal cutters of the same size, the Knipex 74 12 180 offers a much better ratio between the force required and cutting capacity.

The geometry of the cutting edges, joint and the handles has been designed for efficiency. During hard, constant use, e.g. during assembly work, this tool is also the first choice because its ergonomic design really conserves the strength of the user – and because the opening spring which can be activated when necessary saves one hand movement during each cutting operation.

The good reasons for these high leverage diagonal cutters are plain to feel and see: multi-component grips, hand-friendly shape of the handle, the opening spring – and the perceptible, particularly tough construction with the forged joint axle when cutting. Despite the fact they are so strong, comfortable and stable, these high leverage diagonal cutters weigh only 273 g.
