Large high leverage diagonal cutters for hard constant use

Reliable tool for professional users: tough and strong

Thanks to their high cutting capacity and indestructible strength, the Knipex 74 22 250 high leverage diagonal cutters are highly valued especially by craftsmen and industrial mechanics.

The version with a length of 250 mm is frequently used on building sites and in manufacturing because it can cut hard materials such as piano wire up to 3.0 Ø mm effortlessly.

The pliers head at a 12° angle offers more freedom of hand movement in confined work situations.

Comparatively low weight, optimum geometry and a 20 % energy saving

Compared to conventional diagonal cutters of the same size, the Knipex 74 22 250 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. This tool is also the first choice for hard constant use, e.g. in industry, because its ergonomic design really conserves the strength of the user: the ergonomic design of the high leverage diagonal cutters and the hand-friendly shape of the handle with multi-component grips make every hand movement easier.

At 437 g, the weight of the extremely robust design with forged joint axle is comparatively low in view of the impressive cutting capacity.
