Cutting it

Mans International has announced the ARM Cordless Bolt Cutter for cutting through high tensile steel bars up to 16mm (5/8 inches) thick. This tool achieves a 11tonf cutting capability from a hydraulic action powered by a 14.4V (2000mAh) rechargeable battery. The Cordless Bolt Cutter is easy to use for single operators.
The cutting head can rotate through 180 degrees for total flexibility. Users simply position the blades either side of the bar and pull the trigger. Once the trigger is released, the blades return automatically to a safe start position. To cope with high tensile steel bars, the blades are made of tough, high-quality steel hardened to HRC63-65. Up to 50 pieces of 16mm (5/8 inch) bars or 70 pieces of 13 mm (0.5 inch) bars can be cut on a single charge. Weighing only 7.1Kg, the extra handle and shoulder strap offer greater stability and a 25 minute recharge time ensures fast, efficient operation out in the field. The bolt cutter is a safer alternative to angle grinders or oxyacetylene torches often used in bar cutting and is much less labour-intensive than conventional heavy manual cutting equipment.
