Cable Cutters

➡ View the complete range of Cembre Battery Cutting Tools – the Cembre battery range of cable cutters significantly reduces electric cable installation times and are suitable for one-hand operation, balanced for greater control and with cable cutter head rotation through 180 degrees for ease of use in confined spaces.

Battery tools are ideal for cutting low and high voltage power, control and instrumentation cables including steel wire armoured (SWA) cables.

Cembre battery crimping tools are also available to suit all types of cable installations.

Thorne & Derrick can provide expert tool recommendations to ensure customer selection of the most suitable battery cutting tool for the cable application – contact us to discuss your requirements.

T&D have been Official Distributors for Cembre since 1985 – full range of battery cable cutting tools are available for delivery to UK and international destinations from stock; hydraulic cable cutting tools also available.

Cembre cordless hydraulic cutting tools with interchangeable dies perform a perfectly perpendicular cut without deformation of the wire, cable or conductor shape – compare the quality of cut achieved using Cembre tools to the jagged and angular cut using a competitor tool.

Cordless Hydraulic Battery Operating Cutting ToolsBattery Cutting Tools

Featuring 18V Li-Ion battery type operation the Cembre range of cable cutting tools are designed and specified to cut overhead lines and conductors including copper, aluminium, steel ropes and aluminium up to 95mm outside diameter. Tools are available to cut stay wire, steel rope and earth rods – the tools feature a 180° (320° for Cembre B-TC550E) rotating head for cutting cables and conductors in confined spaces including “scissor” movement of the cutting blades to facilitate the cutting of running cables. With improved ease and speed of cutting the balanced tools feature heat treated cutting blades for extended service life. The battery is equipped with LED indicators to display the remaining battery life by pressing the adjacent button.

With double speed action the cable and conductor cutting tools have been adopted by UK and international electric utilities for use by jointers and linesmen due to several user-friendly features including: shoulder strap, rubber grip inserts, low noise, minimal vibration and impact resistant shell resistant to shock and impact damage during field use.
