Crescent/H.K. Porter® Introduces New PowerPivot™ Bolt Cutters

Posted on April 30, 2018


Double compound action system delivers more cutting power with 30% less effort

Crescent/H.K. Porter®, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, today introduced its new line of PowerPivot™ Bolt Cutters. Featuring a compound action design, PowerPivot Bolt Cutters provide more cutting power, but require 30% less force to cut than traditionally designed bolt cutters.

PowerPivot Bolt Cutters utilize a double compound action design to achieve a higher level of cutting efficiency, delivering superior cutting capability with a 30% reduction in effort to cut when cutting 7/16" HRC-31, 3/8” HRC-42, and 5/16" HRC-48. Blades are precisely ground then induction hardened for extended edge life and added ability to cut hard materials. Handles are made of tubular steel for extra strength and have durable rubber grips for added comfort and control.

PowerPivot Bolt Cutters are available in five sizes with handle lengths of 14, 18, 24, 30, and 36 inches. All have been designed for high performance cutting capacity, both in diameter and hardness of materials. For example, when cutting HRC-48, the 18-inch model will cut up to 9/32" diameter, while the 24-inch model will cut up to 5/16" diameter.  

“Industrial users want tools that require less effort to get the job done, and that’s especially true with bolt cutters,” said Kevin Burnet, Product Manager. “These new PowerPivot bolt cutters from Crescent/H.K. Porter answer that need. They’re strong, powerful, and durable, with the advantage of needing 30% less effort to cut.”

Crescent/H.K.Porter PowerPivot™ Bolt Cutters are available now from automotive warehouse distributors, mobile dealers, online retailers, and from industrial and commercial distributors.
