Ratchet Cable Cutters
Ratchet Cable Cutters

Ratchet Cable Cutters for ACSR or Aluminum & Copper
High-performance design incorporates Delrin plastic rollers and a two-piece operating rod. Roller mechanism travels smoothly along main Epoxiglas® pole. Linked through the roller support unit, the hinged operating rod and larger Epoxiglas pole reinforce each other.
These Ratchet Cable Cutters meet OSHA Electrical Rating subpart V-section 1926.951 (d).
Insulated support pole is Chance orange 1-1/2"-diameter Epoxiglas with Plastisol butt cap, operating shaft is 3/8"-diameter solid fiberglass rod, and lever handle is 1"-diameter Epoxiglas with rubber cushion grip.

Four standard models offer practical 6- foot or 8- footlengths fitted with choice of cutter heads for soft wire or ACSR. Shear-type steel blades cut without deforming cable. Heads are interchangeable for field changeouts. Soft-Wire Head cuts cable of Aluminum through 1000 kcmil bare (1.152") or jacketed URD (2.125") and Copper through 500 kcmil (0.813").
Head for ACSR cuts 54/7 multiple-strand ACSR cable through 556 kcmil (1"). Spare cutter heads may be ordered separately below.

Ratcheting Cable Cutters for ACSR or Aluminum & Copper
Ratcheting Cable Cutters

Compact size gets into close quarters
These patented conductor cutters are hal fthe size and weight of standard ratchet cutters. Two styles of the compact cutters ratings match a wide range of overhead and underground conductors. They can get into such confining workspace as manholes and handholes. In practice, they open in less than half the space required for long-handled ratcheting cutters. Their small size also saves on toolbox and warehouse storage.
Single lever allows easy switching of direction.
For rapid opening or closing, pushing thumb slide toward head allows handles to open wider. Not for use when cutting, this feature nearly doubles the speed of the "soft" cutters makes the "hard" cutters open and close about three times faster than normal. For shorter, more powerful strokes while cutting conductor, release thumb slide.
Easy operation, rugged construction
To give long service life, the design of these compact cutters is based on a simple ratchet mechanism. Simple controls and sure ratcheting action makes working with them easy.
C-typejaws are heat-treated for lasting strength and sharp­ness. Stampings on the jaws indicate application limits.
Despite their small size, they are built to take punishing field conditions. The reinforced-fiberglass handles are PVC-coated and protected by a vinyl sleeve. Thick vinyl grips shield the handle ends and help worker keep a steady grasp. Operating instructions are included with both cutter styles.

Easy operation, powerful construction
A single lineworker can easily cut large-gauge conductors with the power-assist of this tool's closed hydraulic system. It operates like a hydraulic jack, by simply pumping the handle. Epoxiglas® pole, handle and hydraulic hose have been tested to 100kV per foot. Hydraulic oil has dielectric strength of more than 25kV per ASTM D877. Hose has minimum burst strength of 12,000 psi. Pump provides 9,000 psi maximum pressure. Maintenance and operating instructions are included with each tool.

These wire cutters have a heat treated steel cutter head especially designed to cut all aluminum conductors. The aluminum head and Chance Epoxiglas® handles combine to make an insulated lightweight tool for easy handling. A lineman's preference for cutting aluminum jumper cables, conductors or tie wires. Do not use this tool to cut ACSR conductors.

Hydraulically Operated Conductor Cutter
Hydraulic Conductor Cutter

This tool is used to cut conductors up to 954 MCM ACSR, All-Aluminum and 500 MCM copper. Operation is similar to that of an hydraulic jack; a knob-handle is turned to enable the lineman to operate the pump handle. When the cut is completed, the knob is turned in the opposite direction to allow the cutting head to open.
The Epoxiglas pole, handle and hydraulic hose have been tested to 100 kV per foot. Hydraulic oil has a dielectric strength of 25 + kV per ASTM D877-64. The hose has a minimum burst strength of 12,000 PSI. The pump provides a maximum pressure of 9,000 PSI.
Features include jaws designed to cut without flattening the conductor. The jaws are also adjustable to compensate for wear. The hydraulic hose is located outside the pole for easy maintenance. It is extremely well balanced, requiring minimum effort to cut large conductors.

Lever Type Wire Cutters

Three different cutter heads are available for linemen to use for cutting jumper wires, live conductors and tie wires. All cutters are assembled and mounted on Chance Epoxiglas® insulated poles. A solid fiberglass-reinforced operating rod insulates the linemen from the cutter head. The lever handle is coated with plastisol.
The lever action gives the linemen added mechanical force to make clean cuts up to the maximum sizes shown in the table below.

Tree Trimmers
Tree Trimmers

Chance Tree Trimmers are designed to cut up to 1-1/2” dia. branches and are especially useful around energized conductors or in hard to get places. The Tree Trimmer head features sharpened stationary and movable blades made of drop-forged steel. The rope and pulley arrangement gives the operator a mechanical advantage of 3 to 1. For example, a 10-lb. pull on the rope will exert a 30-lb. force on the cutter head lever. Ball bearing pulleys are employed for free operation.
The rope furnished with each basic tree trimmer is 25' long; which will accom­modate a 6' extension on the basic tool. The 18" long Universal Tool Fitting is provided with 25' of rope. A Universal Pruning Saw can be added to the universal fitting on the side of the head mount. Splices telescope snugly and fasten securely to the splice fitting on the tool. Leaf spring button lock.
