      A:  Walt, these are NOT insulated pliers. They are not meant to be used on or around live circuits.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  Power should always be turned off before cutting a wire. The grips are for comfort only and not to allow you to cut wiring with voltage present.

              Good fit for job.
              I bought these specifically for my carpenters cut bag. They have the features I wanted so I could pull some big tacks or staples and cut ties and clips, adjust the bend of metal ties or hangers etc. pinch and knock off some burrs, even on wood. I used to do a lot of communication and antenna work and these would not be my first choice for wiring because they are too stiff and slow for one handed fast work. They’re not instinctive enough for me. I’d rather have the Klein’s, CL or Milwaukee which will drop a handle losely into one - hand mode. These I just added to the show so I’ll update if needed in the future.

                I am putting up a welded wire field fence and had to trim the ends. These pliers, with the increased leverage, made quick work of the project. The wire is not thick enough to require bulky bolt cutters but I needed more that the cutters I use for electrical projects.

                A little big for daily use, but great for big jobs
                I am a little conflicted on these pliers. I chose them to keep them in my daily tool bag. Turns out they are a little big and heavy for daily use. However, they are GREAT for the heavy duty jobs. I was using them to pull out staples that were securing 12/2 electric wiring. They worked great! Much better than the a normal pair of linesman pliers. As you can see by the pictures I included below, they are much bigger and little challenging to fit in your hand....especially if you have smaller hands. Also, they cut great too!!

                OK for BIG hands, difficult for others.
                I got these 'pliers' to replace my 30-plus year old side cutter. I quoted the word 'pliers' because this item is a snip or side cutter, not pliers in the usual sense, though they do have a half inch-long serrated surface between the handles that can be used to grip something that is bigger than 1/8". The pliers are chunky and machined from forged steel. They are 7 3/4" long, 2" wide and 3/4" thick. At 400gms (14oz), this makes them 30% heavier than my side cutter at 300gms (10.6oz). For me that puts the pliers into an inconvenient weight category. Rather than the single pivot point of my side cutter which I've never oiled, these pliers have two pivots, two sliding joints, and multiple other points of friction which all had oil applied at the factory. Even after wiping off excess oil, oil continued to seep out at the pivots. Unless the pliers can be protected from dust, the combination of dust and oil will create a grinding paste which will shorten the life of the product. When compared to the side cutter, the plier's handles need to be opened much wider to accommodate the same size object at the deepest or most powerful point of the jaws. For a 10d nail, this amounts to 5 3/8" for the pliers, but only 3 1/2" for the side cutter. When set up like this, the pliers cut the nail using less strength, but my medium-sized hands cannot span the larger size, so this negates the power advantage of the pliers. Placing the nail at the half-way point in the jaws, the handles are at the same width as the side cutter, but then the required effort is also the same as the side cutter. The picture shows the two tools opened to cut 12-2 wire. I do not see any advantage in these pliers and will be keeping my trusty side cutter.

                Great design. You can't go wrong with these. Makes cutting much easier.
                When I saw the design of these and the claim they took a lot less power to use they caught my interest. I'm not a young guy any more and I don't have the strength in my hands I used to. So I tire quicker and find some things harder than I used to. So every advantage I can get can help. I tried these out on some solid steel core direct burial electric fence leader wire. It's pretty tough stuff and I have to use both hands to cut it with the heavy blue handle pliers in the picture with these. (I used to be able to do it with one hand but not now) With these I easily cut it with one hand without even straining. The design makes a huge difference in how easily I can cut tough things like this. So these things are great. The heavily padded handles don't hurt either. Makes it that much easier on your hands. They maybe don't open as wide but they open plenty wide for anything I'll be cutting. Anything bigger and I'd need to use my bolt cutters. But these are great for the heavy stuff like this steel wire. And I can see them being great if you are doing electrical working cutting #10 copper all day. I love these things. Best set of pliers I've come across in a long time. The materials are of good quality. Like I said, you can't go wrong with these. This is one of the best new tools I've tried in a while.

                Great addition to any toolbox
                Started using these cutters yesterday for some light wiring and couldn't be happier. Had to run a vent fan in the laundry room and these were great at completing the task. Beefy construction, grippy handles, and plenty of cutting power. Compared to my old yellow store brand cutters, there is no comparison. My old ones got the job done, but these got the job done with ease. Note that if you're in tight quarters, the handles do need to open further to open the jaws the same distance as normal cutters, due to the offset hinge. For most work this will be a non-issue though. You can see what I mean in the pics, but watch the vid for real proof.

                Excellent powerful pliers, but joint is too stiff
                I have a cheap pair of linesman pliers, but they are relatively small, and I wanted a slightly larger pair that offered more leverage. These Crescent pliers are a great size and are exactly what I was looking for, but the Pivot Pro design has a few flaws. First, the jaws of these pliers are nice and wide, so they grip well and are good for twisting and bending wire and metal. The jaws have a nice long cutting blade, so it's quick and easy to cut and have a large capacity. The Pivot Pro design does work well, providing more leverage and requiring less pressure to produce a tight grip on something or cut through wire. And the long handles allow you to apply quite a bit of force. So the unique joint does work well compared to normal pliers. However, there are two downsides to the Pivot Pro design. The first is that the jaws don't open quite as wide. You have to open the handles wider than a traditional jointed plier and you get slightly less jaw capacity. It's not a huge difference, but it's noticeable when you first use these pliers, particularly if you have smaller hands. Second, and more importantly, is the one real gripe I have about the Pivot Pro design: the joint is VERY stiff and the pliers will not open without pushing or pulling the handles apart. So with each wire you cut or each piece of new material you grip, you have to either use your fingers to push down on the lower handle to open the pliers, or use two hands to open them. If I had to do this dozens (or hundreds) of times in a row to cut wire, it would drive me nuts, and any hand fatigue that the Pivot Pro design reduces would be offset by the additional fatigue caused by having to open up the pliers again with every cut. The joint seems well machined with tight tolerances, so it doesn't feel like it will loosen up much over time, or it will take quite a bit of use before it does loosen up. If Crescent is able to loosen up the joint of these pliers to make them easier to open, they would be perfect. But other than that issue, they are great pliers and work very well. Crescent provides a lifetime warranty on their hand tools under the "Apex Tool Group" company.
