How to use hydraulic cable cutters

Using hydraulic cable cutters requires proper technique and adherence to safety guidelines. 

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use hydraulic cable cutters effectively:

1. Safety Precautions:

Before using hydraulic cable cutters, ensure you have the necessary personal protective 

equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, gloves, and appropriate clothing.

Inspect the tool for any damage or defects before proceeding.

2. Select the Correct Cutter:

Choose a hydraulic cable cutter that is suitable for the size and type of cable you need to cut. 

Ensure that the cutter's cutting capacity matches or exceeds the diameter of the cable you are working with.


3. Prepare the Cable:

Inspect the cable for any obstructions, knots, or damage that could hinder clean cutting. 

Straighten out any kinks or twists in the cable before positioning it for cutting.

4. Positioning:

Place the hydraulic cutter jaws around the section of cable you intend to cut. Ensure that 

both jaws are securely aligned and gripping onto the cable without slippage.

5. Apply Pressure:

Activate the Hydraulic System of the cable cutter according to the manufacturer's instructions. 

This will apply pressure to the jaws, causing them to close and cut through the cable.

Make sure you are in a stable position and have a firm grip on the tool.

6. Cutting Process:

Once the pressure is applied, allow the hydraulic cutter to complete its cutting cycle. 

Avoid excessive force or unnecessary movement during this process,

as it may affect the quality of the cut or damage the tool.

7. Release Pressure:

After completing the cutting cycle, release the pressure on the hydraulic system and 

open up the jaws of the cutter. Ensure that both jaws are fully opened

before removing them from around the cut section of cable.

8. Inspect and Clean:

Inspect both ends of the cut cable for any burrs or sharp edges that may 

require further smoothing or deburring. Use appropriate tools or 

techniques to remove any rough edges if necessary.

9. maintenance:

After using hydraulic cable cutters, clean them thoroughly to remove any debris or residue 

that may affect their Performance in future applications. Follow manufacturer guidelines

for maintenance procedures such as lubrication and storage.

10. Safety Practices:

Always prioritize safety when using hydraulic cable cutters by following

proper handling techniques, wearing appropriate PPE, and being aware of your surroundings.

Never use damaged or malfunctioning tools, and seek professional assistance if needed.
