Heavy-Duty Bolt Cutters

Heavy-duty bolt cutters

Heavy-duty bolt cutters are designed to cut bolts, chains, padlocks, etc. These tools are widely used in the construction industry. In addition, a bolt cutter is worth having in your toolkit for home use.

A bolt cutter has two long handles, short blades, and compound hinges for maximizing leverage as well as cutting force. The blades of high-quality heavy-duty bolt cutters are made of durable materials (for example, alloy steel). 

When choosing a bolt cutter, pay attention to its size. The longer the handles, the more leverage will be created, and, as a result, the more cutting force.

There are different types of cutting blades:

  • Center cut  - the blades are beveled on both sides & are equally distant from each other. Tools with this type of cutting blades are used for cutting through rods, thick cables, pipes, and more.

  • Angled cut - the cutter head is angled for easier insertion. Perfect for cutting off nails or bolts almost on the same level with the surface they are in.

  • Clipper cut - the angle blade runs to a flat side. Great for cutting off nails + making a clean cut through sheet metal.

  • Shear cut - the blades overlap and slide past each other. Suitable for cutting through wire cables.

  • End cut - the ends of the blades are flattened and turned in. Tools with this type of blades are perfect for hard-to-reach places.
