Apex Tool Group LLC has added PowerPivot Bolt Cutters to its Crescent/H.K. Porter hand tool brand.
Featuring a compound action design, PowerPivot Bolt Cutters provide more cutting power, but require 30% less force to cut than traditionally designed bolt cutters, according to the company.
PowerPivot Bolt Cutters use a double compound action design to achieve a higher level of cutting efficiency, delivering superior cutting capability with a 30% reduction in effort to cut when cutting 7/16-inch HRC-31, 3/8-inch HRC-42, and 5/16-inch HRC-48.
Blades are precisely ground then induction hardened for extended edge life and added ability to cut hard materials. Handles are made of tubular steel for extra strength and have durable rubber grips for added comfort and control.
PowerPivot Bolt Cutters are available in five sizes with handle lengths of 14, 18, 24, 30, and 36 inches. All have been designed for high performance cutting capacity, both in diameter and hardness of materials. For example, when cutting HRC-48, the 18-inch model will cut up to 9/32-inch diameter, while the 24-inch model will cut up to 5/16-inch diameter.
“Industrial users want tools that require less effort to get the job done, and that’s especially true with bolt cutters,” says Kevin Burnet, product manager.
“These new PowerPivot bolt cutters from Crescent/H.K. Porter answer that need. They’re strong, powerful, and durable, with the advantage of needing 30% less effort to cut.”
Crescent/H.K.Porter PowerPivot Bolt Cutters are available now from automotive warehouse distributors, mobile dealers, online retailers, and from industrial and commercial distributors.
