Greenlee, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, recently introduced the ES20LXR Overhead Remote Cable Cutter developed in conjunction with utility professionals to help “remove the target” in high voltage cutting applications.
Allowing unprecedented access to hard-to-reach overhead areas, the ES20LXR weighs less than 5 pounds with battery, has a 350-degree rotating head and is designed to give the user total operational control while cutting hard metals in utility distribution environments.
A universal remote with handheld and remote usage settings is compatible with all Greenlee remote tools.
Visual indicators provide tool status with forward-stop-reverse at any point and the patented trigger jacket helps secure the tool with universal spline connection to the hot stick.
“The Greenlee ES20LXR Overhead Remote Cable Cutter is our latest tool solution designed to improve the safety of high voltage workers,” said Ryan Berg, director of product management, Greenlee for Emerson. “This tool not only keeps users in the safe zone while cutting, its lightweight design and rotating head put less strain on the body to help reduce user fatigue.”
The 2.0Ah Makita battery in the ES20LXR charges in under 25 minutes, provides more cycles per charge and pairs with the Greenlee Link mobile app for performance tracking.
