MANCHESTER, N.H., June 10, 2005 — FCI-BURNDY, a leading manufacturer and provider of connector solutions to the industrial, energy, application tooling and automotive industries, introduces the newly designed BURNDY PATRIOT PATCUT battery actuated hydraulic cutter for the electrical market. Compact, fast, and easy to use, the PATCUT incorporates the latest in battery tool technology.
The ergonomic design allows one hand operation so the user has one hand free to manipulate the conductor into the proper cutting position. Also, the PATCUT incorporates a specialized latch-style cutting head that allows interference-free closure for mid-span cuts and rotates 180 degrees to allow users to get into tight areas easier.
The PATCUT is capable of cutting 1.29 inches of copper and aluminum cable, 1113 ACSR, 5/8 inch soft steel bolts, 1/2 inch standard guy strand, and 3/8 inch EHS guy strand.
It comes equipped with a high impact formed carrying case to hold the tool, a tool retention lanyard, a battery charger and two batteries. The tool operates on industry-standard 18-volt Ni/MH batteries that eliminate voltage depression or “memory” issues. What’s more, the addition of a reliable mechanical ram release helps prevent depletion of battery power.
The PATCUT comes with a limited warranty on the cutter, batteries, and charger.
