What is the largest gauge wire this will cut? I will use it to cut a welded wire fence. I don't know the gauge, but it is probably 12 or 14.

Answer: 
Welded wire fencing will destroy these wire cutters. They are designed for electrical wire, copper and aluminum specifically.

Answer: 
I've cut both, 12 and14 gauge wire. Works well. But if you're going to be cutting a lot I would recommend getting the Klein Tools Side Cutters.

Answer: 
I'm sure the jaws will open wide enough to cut the fence wire. The blade is intended for copper wire though. I would probably choose a different tool to cut the steel fencing wire as it may leave gouges in the blade.

Answer: 
Do not use these for steel wire, you will ruin them. These are for copper and aluminum only. For steel wire you will need compound action cutters with hardened blades. The cutters you want look like small bolt cutters.

Answer: 
10ga solid copper.12ga stranded. I would not use these on the steel fence though. There is a better than good chance you will break these wiring pliers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Klein Wire strippers Love Klein products im an Journeyman Electrician. AllI useare Klein and Milwaukee brand tools tools... September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good median duty wire strippers strippers are good quality but are limited to 12 gauge wire as the largest size August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stripper Klein tools makes the best tools for any elecric job. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spend the extra money Spend the extra money on the Klein electrical tools, you won't be sorry. Quality tools at a fair price. This is my second pair of these stripper/cutter, I got 13 years out of the previous pair. I plan on many more years of service from this pair. These aren't flimsy and weak like so many other wire strippers I have used. They are the correct feel in your hand to get the job done. No problem cutting romex or any other wire I have put them through. April 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Works great haven't ever had any problems with this item. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Essential Tool for Every Toolbox, Drawer, or Bench Essential tool to have in the toolbox. Even for someone who doesn't, perhaps, use it everyday, it's one of those tools that when you need it, this is the one to have. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT TOOL The quality of this wire stripper is seen in the machining in the edge of the each and every cutter. These wire stripper/cutters are tough, enough to cut 2 AWG! They are curved slightly to give you more leverage pulling off stubborn wire or cable shields. They are worth way more than their price! March 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Klein brand is always best electrical tools! Fantastic pliers. Only reason I bought another is mine from over a decade ago were off-site. The old ones still work great too. The curve in the handle makes it very easy to clip and get around wires in a box. The cutters and strippers are properly sized and stay sharp. April 22, 2014
