These PocketShear 28v battery operated strand cutters, available from PJM Industrial , come with spare battery packs included.
They are a much safer piece of equipment to use than grinders, for example, which have abrasive blades. Being battery powered means that these strand cutters do not have cords and leads which can be potential trip hazards in the work area. There is also a noticeable reduction in electrical hazards, no grinder sparks, no eye injuries from debris, no burns resulting from hot blades or work pieces and no vibration injuries from prolonged use.
PocketShear battery powered strand cutters have serviceable cutting pieces which can be done by trained operators. They still weigh around about the same as a grinder but there is no kick on start-up or any unguarded cut points.
These strand cutters have been specifically manufactured for the stressing industry and can be classified as a ‘green’ technology compared to any other method.
