The Knipex 73 06 160 X-Cut is a multi-talented all-rounder cutting plier with insulated multi-component grips, VDE tested handles, it has a box joint design and is compact, light and simultaneously powerful and highly precise. With its wide range of cutting abilities, it offers versatility in industry, trades and crafts.
The VDE version of this plier is individually tested at 10,000V to ensure safe working at up to 1,000V and passes EN60900. A specially engraved jaw prevents the wire slipping away from the pivot point, ensuring an easy, clean cut every time.
The X-Cut cuts through the finest strands with great precision, has the force required for easy cutting hard piano wire, and features a large jaw opening for multi-stranded cables.
When cutting a medium-hard wire (Ø 3 mm) the X-Cut requires about 20% less force than a conventional diagonal cutter of the same size. Further user-friendly advantages are provided by the box joint design with easy, zero-backlash movement and a slim head shape for easy access even when working in confined areas.
This KNIPEX innovation provides professionals from industry, trades and crafts with a general-purpose diagonal cutter to meet the most varied cutting requirements in a metalworking shop or an electrical workshop.
The X-Cut is compact and light but nevertheless heavy-duty and sturdy – it is the new all-rounder among the diagonal cutters.
