Three M Tool of York, Pennsylvania manufacturers both hydraulic and manual cable cutters for use in retail stores such as Home Depot, Lowes, True Value and other hardware stores. Because the hydraulic chain cutters are self contained units, they are relatively simple to use & maintain without any extra parts to lose or handles to come off. Three M Tool’s hydraulic units are designed with the average hardware store employee in mind: the units are simple to set up and learn.
When used with the universal mounting plate kit (also sold by ThreeMTool), you can securely fasten the hydraulic chain & cable cutter to a pallet rack decking, bench or any horizontal shelf.
There are no user serviceable parts inside the hydraulic cutters. However, by following the simple problem solving checklist, you can self diagnose what might be wrong and then contact Three M Tool for instructions on troubleshooting or returning the unit for professional service.
Three M Tool currently offers two models of their hydraulic chain cutter:
1) Model 44 weighs 36 pounds, is 4.5″ x 12.875″ x 10″ deep, and can handle up to a 3/8″ high-test chain & cable with 35 pounds force at capacity.
