Cordless hydraulic cable cutters

for profiled contact wires

Cordless hydraulic cutting tool B35M-TFC with interchangeable dies to perform a perfectly perpendicular cut without deformation of the wire shape.


Contact wire cut with a traditional cutter

Contact wire cut with the B35M-TFC tool





















Hydraulic cutting head for cutting profiled contact wires and copper and aluminium ropes. Interchangeables dies cut perpendicularly and without deformation to optimise joint installation.
The use of this head simplifies the cutting operation and reduces the time needed to prepare the joint.

Simple 3 stage operation


Insert the die set into the head

Position the conductor inside the die set so that the blade lines up with the desired cutting point; close the die set by moving the locking handle towards the tool body, until automatically “locked” in position and securely clamping the wire/conductor.
Operate the pump to advance the blade to the conductor; the blade progressively advances until the conductor is completely cut in a clean and precise manner without deforming the conductor itself.



The B 35M-TFC is a cordless tool that can be operated with one hand.


Suitable for cutting profiled contact wires, on electrified traction systems.
