Boasts extra-wide handles that ease up some of the stress on your hands as you cut through particularly stubborn material. Meets the industry standard in strength of cutting heads, which are made of CrMo hand-forged steel. The folding feature makes it a convenient tool to carry.
It's a heavy set of bolt cutters, and some users had frustrating experiences with thicker rods.
Can get through rods up to one-fourth inch and has a strong handle that is designed to maximize comfort during use. The compound cutting action makes it even easier to wield and takes some of the stress off the user. Features good leverage, but you might want to consider larger sizes for bigger projects.
You're losing on some quality, but the price point is enticing.
Use this convenient tool on any tool site, as it's easy to carry around. It features double-heat-treated CrMo blades that ensure it's tough enough to cut through a variety of materials. It's designed to do a lot of the work for you, so you can save yourself some exertion. And the ergonomic grip makes it easy to handle.
It's small, so don't expect it to handle the bigger, more stubborn materials.
Manufacturer focused on maximizing leverage when designing this tool. It can get through hardened rods. Also, the jaws of the PowerGear Bolt Cutter should last the test of time. Otherwise, the lifetime warranty ensures you can't make a bad purchase.
Some problems with rust if the tool isn't stored correctly.
If you have particularly hard materials you need to cut through, this is the tool for you. It takes less exertion from the user to get the job done than a normal bolt cutter. Fairly priced, as it isn't built for high use, but will get the job done for a more novice user.
Users expecting a tool that will stand up to the rigors of everyday construction work might be disappointed.
