Cutters work well. I’ve only tried up to 4/0 copper but cuts easily in insulation. Need to switch to lower gear if the wire is stripped. I have not had the opportunity to try 500 copper yet seen the tool claims I can do up to 600.
This thing is a beast for residential and light commercial applications. It fits quickly and cleanly. I love it. I’ve had it a month or two and it’s still going strong
Wish I had bought one years ago !
this thing is amazing. I bought it cause I was tired of busting my gut trying to cut 600mcm. If you’re a self employed electrician who’s considering this tool, go for it. its worth every penny when you can hold that wire next to the lug, and don’t have to do anything but reach in and pull the trigger to get cut to length.
The m12 600 cable cutter is small but does a big job . This m12 cutter has the power
I am a electrician by trade and used this product on large commercial jobs and cuts great every time.Just keep a backup battery on hand.Like all tools read instructions Do not use these on any type of steel cables.They are meant to cut soft metals like copper and aluminum only.
Works great. Going to save a lot of time
Easy to use. Saves time cutting cables.
Excellent tool, good price
Works great!! The only thing it needs is some how to hang it and maybe in the m18.
I am a journeyman electrician 16 yrs this cutter is easier & 10 times faster than ratchet cuters. Has battery gauge on side. The cold weather has not drained the battery like the older li ion batteries did. I don’t regret buying this new toy
Excellent tool, good price
It’s a good product for the price works good text a little effort cutting through the tiger cables but did get through them would like to see it an 18 V version
Every member of your crew will want/need one by the end of the first day you use it.
Great tool, makes my job easier
Makes cutting wire easy.
This one tool saves more time and mussels then you can only imagine!
I have already one so this is my second one I do love this tool makes my job easier I was expecting since Milwaukee doing improvements on all their tools they was going to do a fuel line on this one ,
great tool. Cuts 600MCM IN FEW SECONDS
This cutter shattered my expectations. Easily cuts through 500 mcm copper and I have no doubt it will cut 600s as it says it would. Saves a ton of time cutting large wires and prepping for terminations and also saves your hands from making countless pulls on the ratchet cutters. It’s low profile and fits in tight areas with ease. It also cuts well over 100 cuts per charge on a 3ah battery. For its price point it is hands down worth every penny. Your hands will thank you, your speed will improve, and the overall quality of installation will improve, and the overall quality of installation will be better because you will be more inclined to make that one more precision cut opposed to saying forget it because your hands are sore! 250s and under I cut on hi speed in less than 3 seconds. 350s-500s on low gear took about 6 seconds. This is an excellent tool. If you work with large wire for a living, this is a must have.
