JL-500 Cutter

The new JL-500 with improved blade geometry is the hot knife. Today’s stronger, thicker steel is the butter. Specifically shaped to generate more power at the blade tip at near full open position, this new cutter draws the metal to the rear of the blade where the strongest cutting area finishes the job. Which, of course, helps you save the day.

Features and Benefits:

  • Achieve maximum cutting capability with forged shock-resistant steel blades.
  • More suitable for cutting larger diameter posts and stronger metals.
  • Three distinctive cutting angles for today’s press-hardened boron sheet metal and martensite boron steel.

Technical Specifications:

  • Weight – 47 lbs.
  • Blade Opening – 7.3 in.
  • Length – 43.4 in.
  • Width – 11.3 in.
  • Height – 8.4 in.
