– Greenlee®, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces the ES20LXR Overhead Remote Cable Cutter developed in conjunction with utility professionals to help
“remove the target” in high voltage cutting applications.

A universal remote with handheld and remote usage settings is compatible with all Greenlee remote tools. Visual indicators provide tool status with forward-stop-reverse at any point and the patented trigger jacket helps secure the tool with universal spline connection to the hot stick.
