BURNDY (Londonderry, NH) announces the release of the PATRIOT PATCUT954HS Long Reach, Insulated, Hydraulic Cable Cutting tools. A new addition to the PATRIOT line of long reach cable cutting tools, the PATCUT954HS Hot Stick Cable Cutter (available in 82” and 94” lengths) provides users both increased flashover protection and extended reach for live line cutting. The large capacity C-Head is designed to hook onto conductors, stabilizing the tool for easy cutting, up to 954 kcmil ACSR.
Designed for safety, convenience, and function, the PATCUT954HS series of battery-operated tools perform cuts in less than 15 seconds, minimizing exertion and time required when using similar manual or ratchet type models. The pistol grip and adjustable assist handle allow for extra control when operating overhead, while the rapid advance ram reduces time on live lines, adding to the overall ergonomics and safety of the system.
