18.0 V CORDLESS HYDRAULIC CUTTING TOOL
CodeB-TC550A

Overhead line application

Next generation of 18.0 V cordless hydraulic cutting tool Specifically designed to cut copper, aluminum, aluminum-steel cables (ACSR) steel ropes and rods having a max overall diameter of 2-3/16".

 

The blades are manufactured from high strength special Steel, heat treated to ensure a long service life. New Li-Ion 18 V 4 Ah batteries offer a higher capacity than 14.4 V 3 Ah, while greater cutting speed and cutting force result from a revitalised hydraulic system with double speed action. The battery  is equipped with led indicators that indicate the remaining battery life at any time by pressing the adjacent button. The head can rotate through 327 degrees, to enable the operator  to work in the most comfortable position, and can  easily be opened to allow cutting of running cables. Fitted with a maximum hydraulic pressure valve.  Designed with improved balance,   B-TC550A is easily manageable during the cutting process and, by the use of bi-component plastics, has a shell with high resistance to wear and damage.

 

Rubber grip inserts, low noise and minimal vibration aid operator comfort while additional convenience and safety are provided by LED lighting of the working area. For cutting capacity data see page 140.

 

Operating temperature: +5 to +122°F
