This is a double post as it pertain to 2 different threads. I don't usually do this.
A short incomplete report ;-)
A few recommended the Klein 9" cable cutters. Got a new pair today and regardless of it being written right on them for Max 4/0 Aluminum
or 2/0 Copper, I'm please to say they cut through 4/0 stranded copper almost like butter.
Also tried a little experiment
to strip the insulation
off the 4/0 cable. I used my copper tubing cutter
. It worked great and never cut a single
strand of copper!
On a different thread (4/0 Lug / Connector Crimper
) there was discussion about crimping cable.Got my GREENLEE K09-2GL CRIMPING TOOL today. It looks very nice. Made in Germany
. I doubt I'll be able to make it through tomorrow without trying it.
