Milwaukee Cordless Cable Stripper Key Features and Design

Quick-Change Bushings

How much does Milwaukee love thee? Let us count the ways. One: Milwaukee cordless cable stripper models have no exposed blades to get in a disagreement with your fingers.

When removing the outer jacket on a wire, your hands are exposed and vulnerable with your standard cable stripper. Milwaukee does away with this potential injurious situation with their quick-change bushing system.

Sticking the cutting blades where you can’t hurt yourself can only be a good thing. Milwaukee’s bushing design also has the added benefit of preventing nicks to the wires.

This system also excels when you run into larger or smaller wire gauges. You simply unlock the current bushing, replace it with the correct size, and lock the new bushing into place. Bingo, bango, bongo, you’re ready for more stripping.

Milwaukee has 3 different kits available. On either the M18 or M12 platform, you can select a kit for:

  • Cu THHN/XHHW
  • Al THHN/XHHW
  • Cu RHW/RHH/USE.

Separate bushing kits are also available:

  • 1/0 AWG – 750 MCM Cu THHN/XHHW bushing kit
  • 1/0 AWG -750 MCM Al THHN/XHHW bushing kit

Tight Work

Two: the new Milwaukee cordless cable stripper models feature a right-angle design and a compact head. This design lets you get into those crowded panels and switch gears easily. Where you were once stuck having to awkwardly jockey for position, now you can slide your stripper into the place you actually need them.

The M12 strippers have an overall head length of 8.46″, while the M18 only measures in at 8.36″

Plus, neither Milwaukee cordless cable stripper actually weighs all that much. The M12 weighs in at 3.65 pounds, while the M18 model will only tack on an extra .2 pounds. Those are bare tool weights and the battery you choose will add to them.

Controlled, Accurate Strips

Three: an internal depth gauge lets you dial in the right amount of jacket to strip. The tools revolve their cutters down the cable and strip off the outer jacket, stopping at the correct measurement you set via the depth plunger at the back.

Milwaukee Cable Stripper

You get the assurance of controlled, accurate wire strips up to 3 inches, and furthermore, you won’t have to deal with any of those pesky jacket jams.
