KNIPEX Tools Introduces XL CoBolt® Bolt Cutters


10-inch bolt cutters designed for versatile, powerful cutting
with significantly less effort and hand force required.

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – KNIPEX Tools introduced its series of compact XL CoBolt® Bolt Cutters to add to its original 8-inch CoBolt® Mini Bolt Cutters series. The bolt cutters are now 10 inches in length and are available with straight blades or with a notch, which allows for easier cutting of thicker materials.

The XL CoBolt® Bolt Cutters feature a high transmission ratio that lowers the hand force needed, requiring 60 percent less effort compared to high-leverage diagonal cutters of the same size. The micro-structure, laser-etched cutting edges are uniquely designed to stop thicker, round objects from slipping during use. The notch in the blade keeps large cross sections close to the base of the blade for maximum leverage and easier cutting.

Other features include gripping jaws below the joint for gripping and pulling nails, which make the CoBolt ideal for automotive, farming and fencing applications. Forged and oil-hardened from German, chrome vanadium heavy-duty steel, this professional tool has induction-hardened precision blades with a cutting edge hardness of approximately 64 HRC.

“The improved leverage and ease-of-use of the KNIPEX XL CoBolt Bolt Cutters make them an unprecedented pair of cutters capable of cutting almost any metal you put in its jaws,” said Todd Shumate, president, KNIPEX Tools. “We’ve heard the demands of our customers for a bigger CoBolt and now no set of tools is complete without the 10-inch XL CoBolt Bolt Cutters.”
