Enerpac cuts the cord with portable cordless bar cutter
The new battery-powered EBC-Series Cordless Bar Cutter is designed for those who work in environments without access to on-site power. It is a convenient, and safe solution where external power is not available or where spark risk is a concern.
Enerpac announces the highly portable EBC-Series Cordless Bar Cutter for quickly and easily slicing through up to number 6 rebar or similar metal bar up to 0.79" (20mm) in diameter within seconds. The new battery-powered model is designed for those who work in environments without access to on-site power. It is a convenient, and safe solution where external power is not available or where spark risk is a concern.
Portable, self-contained, and convenient
Whether cutting rebar for residential or commercial construction or cutting steel and aluminium bars (round, hexagonal, or square) in industrial applications, the cordless technology in the Enerpac Cordless Bar Cutter provides complete freedom of movement. Because it has self-contained power, no external power source is required. This makes the tool completely portable. Another convenient feature on the cutter is a 360-degree rotating head that allows the tool to either be positioned flat on a work surface, where metal bar can be fed through the blades from a comfortable working position, or rotated in any orientation needed to finish hard-to-reach cuts on the jobsite.
Another way Enerpac makes the tool convenient is by supplying it with two batteries and a charger so the operator can keep working when the first battery needs to be charged.
The cutter offers a controlled, shear cut that is repeatable—unlike rotating cuts that tend to walk or slide on the bar—providing a uniform precise cut every time. Able to quickly cut through up to #6 rebar in 5 seconds, the Enerpac EBC-Series Cordless Bar Cutter has highly durable blades for thousands of cuts, with up to 125 cuts on a single charge.
Minimises Safety Risks
The new Enerpac Cordless Bar Cutter is designed to minimise safety risks. Gas saws, angle grinders and cut-off tools are among the most popular solutions for cutting metal bar today, however, these tools are also the leading causes of injuries to an operator’s hand, arm or face. With the cordless bar cutter, the bar is held in place behind a protective guard, while a Trigger Guard helps prevent accidental activation. While the cutter’s controlled cutting action ensures there are no shooting sparks, exploding blades or exposure to high RPM cut-off wheels.
