Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Southwire S1018SOL Solid & Stranded Wire Stripper Full disclosure Southwire sent me the S1018SOL Solid & Stranded Wire Strippers to review. That being said when I review something I give an honest opinion about whether it's a good product or a bad one. I also already had the S1018STR 6" Compact Wire Strippers (that I purchased from Acme Tools with my own money). The S1018SOL are similar to the S1018STR strippers with a few minor differences. They have ergonomic handles that are curved instead of straight. They are slightly larger in both the handle length and length of the actual head of the tool. They have a different spring than the S1018STR that is longer and applies more opening force. The S1018SOL also have the ability to shear 6-32 and 8-32 screws. I tested them with the same Southwire wire that I tested the S1018STR’s on and found them to be a little more difficult to strip with. I found myself having a hard time holding them closed while trying to strip the wire and it’s because of the combination of the ergonomic handle and the stronger spring.. I did find a solution to the problem though. If I lock the strippers closed while stripping the wire it worked a lot better and stripped much faster. I feel that if Southwire was to replace the spring on the S1018SOL with the same one on the S1018STR or something in between the two it would be easier to hold the strippers closed which would result in stripping the wire easier. I am personally not a fan of the curved ergonomic handle or the stronger spring on the S1018SOL. I’m also not a fan of the locking mechanism on the S1018SOL because it’s different than the S1018STR and has a bent piece that stops it from opening too far that I find makes it feel stiffer and takes a little more force to open. It’s not a huge problem but it is something I noticed between the two. I do really like the size of the S1018SOL and wish Southwire offered the same model with a straight handle. I prefer 7-8″ handles on hand tools and the 6.25″ size of the S1018STR is just a little too small for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Clean insulation cuts & good ergonomics I received this product a while ago and did not have the chance to use it till recently on a cabinet re-wire job. I was very pleased with the ease of use, the comfort of it and the clean strips. I would definitely recommend this tool for anyone's tool kit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great tool! I've had these for about a month and so far they have done me well. They have very nice grips to them and a very sturdy feel. I have had no problems with them and hopefully I never will. The only thing I have a slight negative towards is that they feel a bit tight to squeeze but that can be easily fixed so it isn't a big deal for me [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I expected I expected to use these just for evaluation and feedback, but now they are my favorite. The curved handles are very comfortable, the lock is easy to use and doesn't move unexpectedly, and the spring force is just right. I have used them on solid and stranded wire from 14 to 10 AWG and they work beautifully every time. If I lost them I would replace these rather than reverting back to one of my others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great strippers It feels good to know my strippers wont rust when they get wet since i work outside exposed to the elements. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great strippers I have had this for a couple of weeks now and really starting to love it. It has a really strong spring which at first I dint know if I was going to like but it is nice. It has bolt cutters on which allway comes in handy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
