Greenlee Introduces a New Line of Micro Cable and Bolt Cutters Offering Users a Smart Upgrade from Manual Tools

Rockford, IL -- Greenlee Textron, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company has launched new Micro Cable Cutters and Micro Bolt Cutters ergonomically designed to reduce injuries from extended use of manual hand tools, while improving the cutting and crimping process for copper cable, fine stranded copper cable, bolts, and basket-style cable tray. These new cutting tools use a 10.8V battery platform compatible with the existing EK50ML Micro Crimping Tool. This new line of tools offer users an upgrade from traditional hand tools for jobs not needing the full capability of 18V battery tools.

The new Micro Cable and Bolt Cutters are lightweight and cut in less than eight seconds. The cutting speed of the ES32ML copper cable cutter, ES32FML fine stranded copper cable cutter, and the EBS12ML bolt cutter is three times faster than traditional manual ratchet cutters. The ES32ML has the capacity to cut 600 MCM copper and 750 MCM aluminum cable, and the ES32FML has the capacity to cut 1 1/4” fine stranded copper cable. The EBS12ML cuts common bolts up to ½” along with threaded rod, rebar, steel rod, guy wire, and wire mesh cable tray.

The 350-degree rotating blade heads of these cutters allows for easy setup, especially in tight places. The auto-retract blade feature and battery level indicator enable users to always be ready for the next cut, and a built in LED light illuminates work areas.  Greenlee’s Gator Eye® technology gives users a maintenance advantage with access to the tool’s complete performance history, and the full quality diagnostics information of tool use when used with Greenlee’s Gator Eye Diagnostic Tool.

“Our research has found that safety injuries continue to be a concern on the job site,” said Raffi Elchemmas, AEP, MBA, Tool Ergonomist at Greenlee. “Tighter job spaces are requiring more effort from the body, consequently resulting in increased risk of injuries. Companies are paying large amounts for worker’s compensation costs and experiencing decreased productivity due to injuries. For a worker, those injuries can lead to lost wages and long term irreversible damage.”

The Micro Cable Cutters and Micro Bolt Cutters offer an ergonomic solution for Faster, Safer & Easier® cable cutting, bolt cutting and crimping from Greenlee. For more information, visit or call 1-800-435-0786.
