Guillotine-style Cable Cutting Tools
Greenlee Utility has announced the launch of four new guillotine-style cutting heads for cutting cables and other materials. The Greenlee Utility SDG45 and SDG55 remote cutting heads are designed to cut ACSR cables and other materials, such as rebar, guy strand and ground rods. Greenlee Utility SDG85 and SDG105 heads are designed to cut large-diameter copper and aluminum cables. A battery-powered Gator version of the SDG105 is also available (ESG105LU), which features single-trigger operation and automatic retraction.
Guillotine-style heads are far safer than conventional, scissor-style cable cutters, it's reported. They also reduce egging and distorting cables-giving users cleaner, more accurate cuts.
Remote heads allow utility line workers to operate safely away from the cutting location. All four remote guillotine-style heads can be powered by the Greenlee Utility EHP700LU Battery-Powered Hydraulic Pump, which provides the user with additional features, such as real-time pressure monitoring, downloadable work history and automatic retraction.

The cable ties have a curved tip for faster initial threading to help speed installation and a no slip tail for easy grip during tensioning. CT-SSB ties are currently available in Natural and UV Black.

Tier 4i Air Compressor XP200WJD
Doosan Portable Power is delivering a new power level in its air compressor lineup with the introduction of the Tier 4i-compliant XP200WJD. The new model produces 200 cfm at 125 psig, making it useful for countless applications, including general construction, sandblasting, pneumatic tool operation and pipeline testing.
The XP200WJD maximizes jobsite productivity with an eight-hour runtime at 100 percent load. Dependable even in extreme temperatures, the model features a three-degree limited ambient temperature improvement, delivering reliable performance in conditions up to 118F.
Easy-to-access service points and simplified maintenance enhance machine lifetime. Pnuematic lift side doors provide easy access to service points-from hoses to filters and fuel tanks-while a rear panel simplifies heat exchanger cleaning. A spin-on oil separation system is cited to offer the industry's easiest maintenance, while an engine and airend diagnostic module provides operators with at-a-glance maintenance and servicing information.

HW3 High Pressure Impact Wrench
Greenlee Utility has announced the new HW3 Hydraulic Impact Wrench with very good power-to-weight ratio. Greenlee Utility wanted to provide its customers with the perfect mix of performance and ergonomics, it's reported. For the HW3, this was done by increasing power, reducing weight and adding features such as the new Cool Grip handle.
Greenlee Cool Grip technology is a new, patent-pending polymer design that dissipates heat away from touch points, such as the handle of the unit. This enables users to safely operate the unit for longer periods of time.
When compared to the previous model (H6510), the Greenlee Utility HW3 features 20 percent more torque (up to 1,283 ft-lbs) and 14 percent less weight-a leading power-to-weight ratio in this category of hydraulic tools. A newly-designed, self-regulating flow control prevents over-speed and over-torque at high flow rates, and a hydraulic check valve eliminates damage from improper connections.
