Oops I see it. Yeah don't buy those. We shouldn't support southwire hand tools and the way they've tried to infiltrated the market with their over priced foreign garbage
Those tools cost as much or more than american made brands of equal or greater quality. If this isn't cutting out american jobs for pure greed I don't know what is.

Lowes has them for 119 and they cut up to 750 kcmil are they good? Any one have tjem?
. Overpriced , foreign garbage ! Lowes is a corporate whore for getting rid of the real name brands for this knock off crap . If you want to buy foreign tools , buy something from Germany ( knipex comes to mind ) . Well made , to last a lifetime !

At least there's one or two things out there we can still all agree on

I predict that Southwire tools will be a massive failure. However, they will save themselves if they just rebrand made in USA Klein stuff instead of the Chinese made Klein stuff they're trying to pawn off as Southwire tools.

Klein, are you listening?

Where can you buy American made, ratcheting cable cutters for less than $120? I see people stating "overpriced"?

I'm not defending Southwire, but for $120 I'd consider them.

I have a pair of Klein journeyman cable cutters. Ratcheting seems like cheating. Although, bolt cutters are quite effective.
