Model GXL 4021 LED Work Light Is Ultra Bright, Tough
With 4,500 maximum lumens emanating from its compact aluminum housing, Golight's new Model GXL 4021 LED work light delivers more lumens per square inch and handles up to 40 Gs. The light's fascia measures 4 1/2 in. wide by 4 in. tall, has a depth of 3 1/2 in. and comes with a 2-in. stainless steel mounting bracket. The GXL 4021 represents the company's expansion of its permanently mounted, manually adjustable LED work lights and is the smallest of the four lights it now offers in that category.
The light's small size and illumination power is a byproduct of its space-saving LED cluster design, combining four clusters of four high-powered LEDs to generate a maximum output of 4,500 lumens. The raw power of the light's 16 LEDs is controlled through the use of three rugged yet versatile polycarbonate lenses.
Cable Cutter With Assist Handle Battery Operated
BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of connector and tooling solutions, offers the latest addition to its PATRIOT line of battery powered installation tools. The PATCUT4CUAL-LI 11-ton, 18V lithium-ion battery powered cable cutter accommodates large copper and aluminum cables up to 4.00 in. in diameter, typically seen in underground environments for power and communication applications.
Built on the BURNDY INFINITY DRIVE transmission platform, the PATCUT4CUAL-LI offers a clean and consistent cut every time. Designed for reliability and long-term use, the extra wide opening cutting jaw has hardened steel blades featuring a scissor-action style jaw, enabling the user to lift cable off the ground. An attached blade guide also maintains proper blade alignment during use.
A multi-position assist handle is included to help with balance, comfort and operator control. An over-molded grip area helps facilitate better, more secure handling.
T-Strippers Wire Strippers
IDEAL first introduced its T-Stripper wire strippers in 1957, selling more than 10,000 pairs the first day they were available. The original T-Strippers were created by an engineering team at IDEAL in response to the trend to insulate electrical wire with thermoplastic. Unlike the fabric or rubber that previously was used as insulation, thermoplastic could not be removed with a traditional wire knife. The T-Stripper was designed specifically for the more challenging thermoplastic, hence the T in its name. Over the years IDEAL has continued to upgraded the T-stripper, adding ergonomic and versatility features to improve performance and comfort, while retaining its original quality.
