Communications and construction work
What sizes of Side Cutters are available?
Cutters come in a variety of sizes ranging from 110mm to 280mm (overall length). If a model type comes in different lengths, the jaws will be the same length but the handles will be either shorter or longer. They are usually light in weight due to the fact they are carried around a lot but heavier types with a wide jaw and thick blades are able to cut thicker wires.
Care and maintenance
Do not force cutters to cut through material that is too hard for them as it can damage the blades by chipping or blunting them. These hand tools can be cleaned with soap and water, especially the blades, to remove dirt which could cause issues with the joints and encourage corrosion. Before storing them (in a dry place), make sure they are completely dry to prevent them from rusting.
