Greenlee Bolt Cutters
GREENLEE® is a manufacturer of industrial tools for various construction-related trades. Among their hand tools, they offer a line of bolt cutters suitable for both industrial use at the job site or general use at home.
Greenlee bolt cutters have steel handles and an angular jaw design. Their steel, clevis mounted-blades are sharp and made to keep their sharpness for a long time. The cutting capacity of these Greenlee heavy-duty bolt cutters goes by its range at RB85 hardness and RC40 hardness. The smallest of the bolt cutters has a cutting range of 1/4-inch at RB85 and 3/16-inch at RC40, while the largest has a cutting range of 3/4-inch at RB85 and 3/8-inch at RC40. As for the overall size, you can get Greenlee bolt cutters ranging from 14 inches to 42 inches long.
The bolt cutters have jaw-adjustment bolts and neck-adjustment bolts. The jaw-adjustment bolts change the distance of the blades, either closing or widening the gap between them. The neck-adjustment bolts change the angle of the jaws, thereby bringing the tips of the blades closer together or farther apart. Making these adjustments is as simple as turning the bolts clockwise or counter-clockwise with a wrench.
Greenlee industrial bolt cutters feature rubber-covered handles that provide the grip to generate maximum power. They are strong enough to cut through steel rebar, metal wire and conduit. These cutters are also good for other uses, such as cutting barbed-wire fencing, chains and padlocks. Aside from the Greenlee bolt cutters, this brand offers other tools for tradesmen, including levels, drill bit sets and carbide cutting kits. They also make tool sets, such as an electrician's tool kit.
