Product code: N/A Category: Tags: , , , ,



Unlike conventional ratchet cutters which may need to be disassembled to replace the blades, the S-50 has blades separate to the ratchet mechanism. This allows for replacement of worn blades in a fraction of the time it would take with conventional cutters, and at a reduced cost. This also allows a variety of different blades to be used with the one tool, and easily exchanged.

Storage bag with pockets for spare blades (as shown below) available extra.
