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.
