Milwaukee Bolt Cutter Features

Like the pre-existing models, Milwaukee optimizes the new bolt cutters to deliver more cuts. They feature forged steel blades that have a maximum hardness rating of 48HRC. Milwaukee uses a custom heat-treating process on these adjustable blades for better durability and a longer lifespan.

Milwaukee Bolt Cutter Expansion

The new Milwaukee Bolt Cutters come equipped with the Milwaukee Bolt Lock to keep the pivot bolts secure and from ever loosening. The comfort grip on the handle won’t peel or slide off, and the handles feature integrated lanyard holes for easy tethering.

At the moment, there’s no word if the new sizes will be available as adaptable models with PowerMove.

The new Milwaukee Bolt Cutters will hit the shelves of select Milwaukee distributors beginning in February of 2020.
