Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Expensive but high quality
Expensive for a cable cutter. Bolt cutters are 1/3 of the cost of this item. That said this was a high quality tool. So I guess you get what you pay for. I only needed them to cut a lock cable off a bike when the key was lost.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Manager Not the best but not the worst
We bought this to cut 2/0 Copper, 4/3 and 12/2 MC Cable. It cuts great for 12/2 MC but when you go to cut 2/0 copper and 4/3, it is hard to cut with the short arms that the cutters have and it gouges the cable. The metal was pitted from the first cut and we had to put pvc on it to extend the arms out just to be able to cut the 2/0 copper. If you are going to cut anything bigger, I suggest getting them with longer handles.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Quality tool, built to its max ability
We are working on a job requiring 4/0 copper cable in it by the buildings engineer. This is some large copper and is at the extent of this tools ability requiring two strong arms to cut it. It does the job and is no worse for the wear even after weeks of use. If you need to cut cable this is a good tool.

I bought this because the store told me they had discontinued the Greely line. I had a feeling the design was poor on these but I was assured I could return them if they broke or didn't work properly.
I brought them back to my shop and tried them on the cable I needed to cut. The jaws spread apart and it took at least 6 attempts to make one cut.
The cut was ragged and the tool jaws are now pitted.
I will see if the store is going to refund my money. My advice is not to waste your time or money on these.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Boater Not great
This cutter is only suitable for smaller wire sizes than it is advertised to handle. The blades are not properly hardened and pit regularly. The 350mcm rating is very optimistic as it can barely cut 4/0 copper (around 212mcm). It may be able to 4/0 aluminum, haven't tried it.
