BURNDY® Announces the Release of the PATRIOT® PATCUT954HS Series Long Reach, Live Line, Cable Cutter

BURNDY®, a leading manufacturer and provider of compression connector solutions to the industrial, energy, construction, telecommunications, petrochemical, data center, and transportation industries, is pleased to announce the release of the PATRIOT® PATCUT954HS Long Reach, Insulated, Hydraulic Cable Cutting tools.

A new addition to the PATRIOT line of long reach cable cutting tools, the PATCUT954HS Hot Stick Cable Cutter (available in 82” and 94” lengths) provides users both increased flashover protection and extended reach for live line cutting. The large capacity C-Head is designed to hook onto conductors, stabilizing the tool for easy cutting, up to 954 kcmil ACSR.

Designed for safety, convenience, and function, the PATCUT954HS series of battery-operated tools perform cuts in less than 15 seconds, minimizing exertion and time required when using similar manual or ratchet type models. Bring the control to your fingertips while safely working with hard to reach, energized overhead or underground lines.

The pistol grip and adjustable assist handle allow for extra control when operating overhead, while the rapid advance ram reduces time on live lines, adding to the overall ergonomics and safety of the system. Large on/off triggers and hand grip area enhance the user experience also.

The PATCUT954HS features protected electronic circuitry, the robust and reliable INFINITY DRIVE® transmission, and a patented high-speed hydraulic pump system, retaining the industry-leading performance, speed, and dependability expected from the PATRIOT line of rugged and reliable tools.

Powered by Makita 18-volt lithium-ion batteries for long-lasting power, the PATCUT954HS is multi-Ah capable, accepting 2.0Ah through 6.0Ah sizes. It is offered with a choice of either 3.0Ah or 5.0Ah batteries. A lifetime warranty on the INFINITY DRIVE is included, along with a 5-year limited warranty for the tool (excluding blades and the pole itself), and a 3-year limited warranty on the batteries and charger.
