What Makes Hydraulic Bolt Cutter Different from Others?

What is the definition of a hydraulic bolt cutter?

Hydraulic bolt cutters are the heaviest, meanest, and most razor-sharp set of shears you’ve ever seen. They feature metal blades that can slash through all the toughest metals (typically composed of strong steel). The hydraulic power which drives them generates a tremendous amount of pressure, allowing them to devour anything they come into contact with. Based on the scale and model, they open to varied degrees.

Hydraulic bolt cutter does not slice across materials like a scissor does; instead, they crush them by concentrating massive forces on a small region of blade contact. Bolt cutters have a considerable cutting force thanks to the customary long handles and complex hinges (joints supply extra power to the jaws).

Their cutting strength is obtained by the principle of “leverage,” which entails converting a small amount of force delivered over a large distances (in this case, the lengths of the handles) into a tremendous force applied over a small range (in this case, the jaws).

Hydraulic Bolt Cutter Components

  1. The Jaws

The bolt cutter’s head is formed by the jaws, which are welded discreetly by the handles. The neck is where all the blades are attached to the handles. A couple of bolts holds them in place. The miniature bolt cutter bearing blades as well as the handle diametrically opposed are forged to produce one piece, much like a scissors attached by a single bolt.

  1. The blades

The blades are the ones who do the actual cutting. They are incredibly durable and available in a multitude of forms (such as centre cut, shear cut, and so on) to suit a range of applications.

  1. Joints

The majority of bolt cutters include numerous joints, which are vital for the tool’s strength because they double the force applied to the handles.

The following are the three most important joints:

  • The grip bolt joint that joins the two handles together.
  • The bolt joint in the middle that connects the jaw to the handles.
  • The blades are kept aligned by the mandible joint bolt joint.
  • When the jaws open and close, all three joints operate as pivots. This complicated structure magnifies the pressure that the user exerts to the tool’s handles far more than a single hinge. The jaw joint bolts are put under a lot of stress because they enable the jaws to expand while keeping them flat.
  1. Bolts for adjusting

Except for the fixed-head condensed type cutter, the majority of bolt cutters have one or two adjustable bolts on the neck that can change the inclination of the blades they are closest to. Two blades can be changed on tools with two bolts. Additionally, the jaw plates’ bolts can be rotated to change the spacing between the blades.

  1. Handles

Bolt cutter handles are available in a variety of lengths and materials. This has a substantial impact on the weight and utility of the items. Longer lengths are ideal for cutting materials that are low/high, out of reach, or need a significant amount of force, whereas short pairs are light and ideal for diluent materials that are easily accessible.

  1. Handle Stops

A pair of metal stops are commonly found at the neck or a little distance down the handles of standard long-handled bolt cutters. This prevents the handles as well as blades from colliding at the ending of a cut by moving too close together.
