Bolt cutters

I was anxiously awaiting my new 36 in black rhino bolt cutters. They finally got here and I think they are a little more then I can handle! Prob return and order the 24 inch. What cutters are your fav? And do they cut the 50 mm?

I carry 2 different ones on the truck, 36" and 18" and if they can't cut it, I have a battery powered 4" grinder with a metal cutting disc that will!

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Battery powered grinder is the only way to go... no need to carry bolt cutters any longer.

if you are having trouble cutting a padlock....cut the hasp or chain. much easier.

battery operated sawsall makes quick work of a hasp.

New toys are always a "need".
I would pass on the Crapsman one though!

I switched from 18V DeWalt to Makita LXT a few years ago and am amazed at how they perform in comparison.

What are you asking for that hammer drill? Is it the 20v?
