Solid, reliable and sharp. These are great, very sharp and good at cutting cables with, feel very premium in the hand and have even been through a few live cables and have survived. Top quality

Can be a bit pricey for what they are, sharp and can be just as good as croppers at times! I received mine in a toolkit given to me as an apprentice and still have them now. Great cutters if you have a little more than normal to spend. Can also feel a bit big in your hand and take some getting used to

Review for Klein Tools Insulated High Leverage Diagonal Cutting Pliers by Ewelectrics
25th September 2020

My new go-to snips. Started work with the old orange Bahco cutters (still awesome) until very recently when I picked up a pair of kleins from CEF for cheap. A lot more weight to them which actually feels nice as a feel of build quality and strength. Nice grips that aren’t too much like sand paper or too smooth like ceramic. Lifetime warranties that come with these tools (and also I think 2 years for grips insulation) is a massive perk. They cut well, with ease and don’t want to go blunt. Will buy these now again and again.

Buy these in the blister packs when they have free items included for best value. Stay sharp for longer and high leverage is good for thicker cables and machine screws.

Review for Klein Tools Insulated High Leverage Diagonal Cutting Pliers by Lyttle smart homes ni

Great side cutters have used them since I got them before Christmas and found them to be very good. Blade is sharp and cuts well through 6mm cable with ease checked up prices against knipex and pretty similar price on both but comparing both these seem a bit nicer to hold and more comfortable to work with. Would recommend these to any electrician or engineer.

Hi, guys, Mike here doing a review on these Klein Tools High Leverage Side Cutters for Expert Trades. So, these do have a nifty little feature that lets you know when the insulation's worn down. You can see this white through it on the handles and then you know they need replaced. It's a high leverage, so meant to be able to cut a bit easier than a standard pair of side cutters, this is some FP200. Cutting that no problem, [inaudible 00:00:26]. This is my standard pair, little Wiha pair, very comfortable grips. More comfortable than the Kleins, to be honest. And cut that no problem either. Straight through, you can't really see the difference considering these are meant to be high leverage.

When it comes to something a bit thicker, four colour SY, I know they won't cut it for a fact, but these will. It does take two cuts just 'cause it can't fit it all in the jaw at once, but having to put a lot of pressure down there to get through that, a hell of a lot. I've my three year old Stanley ones which have seen a lot of abuse over the years, I do use them for cutting nails and everything, still cut through it easy. Just feel nicer and feel a lot more comfortable, now I know these aren't insulated, and I'm not a huge fan of Stanley Tools, but this is one thing Stanley Tools made very well, particularly for the price point. If they did offer an insulated pair I would have bought an insulated pair. But if it's left up to me, for £70 I don't see the justified price difference against something like this at £20.

I should think these were dearer than the Stanley ones, to be honest. But these for high leverage side cutters, I don't think you'll be needing, and these I wouldn't have paid £70 for myself, and if I did I've have been very disappointed. Thanks guys.

Hello everyone, my name's Lee I'm from iGas Heat and Limited, and today I'm going to be doing some Tool Talk Reviews on behalf of Expert Trades who very kindly sent me some tools in the post to review. First up will be these Klein Tools Cable Cutters. Now you may think what's a primer doing with these, but often we need to be wiring various things, might like valves, boilers, immersions, pumps, so always hands got a decent set of cutters.

First thoughts on these, really comfy grip. Very good weight as well. They feel very sturdy, so yeah, feel like they're not going to break or anything like that they're getting sort of thrown back in your bag every now and then. So yeah, first impressions really good. These are called Kline, by the way, Kline Tools and that model number is 2000-28, by the looks of it. These are 8" ones, if you can see that. But yeah.
