Impact Wire Rope Cutters

Actuated by striking with a hammer, impact wire rope cutters are easy to operate and give superior performance without jamming. They are precision-engineered to deliver a clean cut without affecting the original roundness of the wire rope. The blades and dies are made of the finest tool steel available, heat-treated, and ground to close tolerances.

Manual Hydraulic Cutters for Wire Rope

Pell Hydrashear manual cutters are self-contained hydraulic cable cutters that are precision engineered tools designed to give a clean cut with minimum effort. Just pump the handle, no outside power is required. Able to be easily carried, these models are favorites of contractors, rigging lofts and elevator repairmen, and are recommended by wire rope manufacturers worldwide. All three models can operate under water (with slight modification).
