Bolt Cutters

Bolt Cutters are a handy tool for cutting through heavy-duty materials like wires, chains, padlocks, and steel. Also referred to as Bolt Croppers they come in many sizes, including different handle lengths with padded grips for comfort and support. The longer handles can be useful for adding more pressure when cutting through tougher materials.



Who uses Bolt Cutters?



Bolt Cutters can be useful in many types of trades including:



  • Construction work

  • Farming

  • Fencing

  • Electrical and building trades

For example, construction workers may use them for cutting through thick steel 'rebar' mesh panels which are built into walls to reinforce them. Or farmers may use them for cutting through wired fencing.



What blade types are there?



There is a range of different cutting blades depending on what you need them for. Some also include adjustable jaws.



The available blade types are listed below:



  • Angle cut: With an angled cutter head for easier insertion. Typical angling is 25 to 35 degrees

  • Centre cut: This is the most common type where the blades are equidistant from each other

  • Shear cut: More like normal paper scissors where the blades are inverted into each other

  • Clipper cut: Used for cutting against flat surfaces, the blades are flush against one face

Bolt cutters are usually available in 12, 14, 18, 24, 30, 36 and 42 inches which includes the length of the handle.
