Greenlee Delivers New Lightweight ES25 Battery-Powered ACSR Cutter
Cuts up to 636 kcmil ACSR in about 8 seconds
ROCKFORD, Ill., Greenlee, a Textron Inc.(NYSE: TXT) company - Greenlee's new ES25 battery-powered ratchet style cable cutter is designed specifically for cutting ACSR and other steel reinforced cables. It cuts most cables in about eight seconds or less. The 7.7 pound cutter can be easily operated with one hand, which makes it a time-saving tool for overhead crews at power utilities and utility contractors.
"We developed the ES25 with a compact, lightweight design that allows it to be used with one hand," said Jim Eisele, product manager. "This way, the ES25 is well suited for use in aerial lifts where one hand is often needed to position the cable."
The ES25 is equipped with a heavy-duty motor that enables the cutting of ACSR up to 636 kcmil. The ES25 comes with a 14.4 V NiCd battery and is capable of making approximately 50 cuts of Grosbeak or 120 cuts of Merlin on one battery charge. The blades are specially contoured and designed to slice the aluminum strands and then snap the steel strands.
The forward/reverse lever and the trigger on the ES25 are all operated with one hand, allowing the end-user to position and steady the cable with the other hand. The rugged gear drive system assures long life and smooth operation. An integral circuit breaker protects the motor if the tool becomes overloaded.
The Greenlee ES25 comes with two batteries, a battery charger, and a molded carrying case. There is a choice of a 120-volt or a 230-volt battery charger.
