Can you verify that these bolt cutters are in fact made in USA? I ask because Klein recently sent production of these to Japan. I am only interested if these are for sure made in USA. Thank you.

Klein Tools 42 in. Bolt Cutter with Steel Handles is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.

Just another quality product from Klein that really can get the job done. super smooth to use and really can cut through the hard metals up to 1/2 inch thick. the length of the cutters allows you to really get the leverage you will need to cut through the hard metal and the jaws are high quality so will be able to take the repeated cuts without showing much damage. The handles are very nice and make holding the cutters easy and comfortable which is important with something that weighs in at over 20lbs. I really do not have something bad to say about these cutters. Klein clearly knows how to make a good set of cutters that will stand up to whatever is thrown at it. Opening and closing is very smooth and holds in place when closed.

The KLEIN 42 INCH BOLT CUTTERS WITH STEEL HANDLES, are very strong, and quite heavy as well. So far I have had to cut a chain, that was only 1/8 inch, but these bolt cutters cut the chain like it was nothing ! Then, I had to cut the head off of a 4 inch bolt that was 3/16 inch in diameter. Again, not real big, but these bolt cutters cut it with no problem at all ! Truthfully I was very impressed with them. The 42 inch length of these bolt cutters definitely give you the leverage you want. And they are ALL steel, which does make them somewhat heavy, but you can tell they are strong !!

Yes I would recommend this product but with a disclaimer. You need to realize that it is LARGE bolt cutter. It is 42" long and weighs over 21 lbs. Now if I was just carrying it as an object no problem. But to use it as a tool to cut bolts, locks etc it is hard. It cuts well and will snap any lock or bolt easily up to 3/8" or more. But it is much more difficult to use because of it size and weight than a smaller tool that will probably do the same job. It isn't really practical for a DIYer like me.

These are the Bolt Cutters you always wanted. 20lb weight. $2 inch handles get the maximum mechanical advantage on all sorts of things. If the Klein bolt cutter won't do it you need a torch. These are for the serious workshop and metal worker. Easy to use from the point of energy to result. Must have their own place in the toolbox or on the work bench. Recommend for the serious user, and commercial applications.

I have an old 3/8" O.D. thickness chain with a heavily rusted 3/8" O.D. threaded quick link chain coupler, at it's end. This 19 pound Klein Tools 42" in. bolt cutter monster, made quick work of cutting the quick link off the chain. It also had no problem cutting a link off the 3/8" O.D. thickness chain. The 42" overall length of the bolt cutter provided all the leverage I needed. The cutting surface on the jaws was not dinged, marred, or damaged in any way, even after I cut a section of 1/2" O.D. rebar. In order to cut the 1/2" O.D. high temper steel rebar, I had to lay one handle on the ground & then push down with the other handle to employ the force necessary to shear off a section of rebar. On the other hand I easily cut a section of 3/8" & 5/8" O.D. Aluminum strand electrical wire & a section of 10-2 electrical wire, like it was cutting through butter. I have a ventilated farm shop, but the Vinyl grips on the handles didn't transfer the Winter cold temperature, from the steel handles. Also, the Vinyl grips were comfortable to hold, while working with the bolt cutter. The cutting jaws adjustment is right on the handle, near the cutting head & very easy to adjust with an open end wrench. This is a powerfully great tool!

The quality of the blade forgings is impressive - the castings are super smooth and very precise. All the fasteners are very high quality. The main pivot bolts are a solid 10mm; the secondary pivot bolts 8mm; all appear to be grade-8 type. I cut thru some 1/4 inch Grade 5 bolts with no issues, and zero blade damage. Of course with only a 13 inch length it took some effort, but nothing unexpected. The handle grips are a bit skinny for my taste, and kind of short, but they do not slip and they give pretty good control. They have a slight 'inward' angle to give that extra bit of leverage when the handles are wide open, I like that. There is absolutely no looseness, no wobble, even after a few dozen cuts. The blade adjustment from the factory was spot on. This is definitely a good pair of compact bolt cutters to keep in the toolbox.

I received this bolt cutter for free to write this review. If you need a portable bolt cutter for smaller applications, these are for you. The max it can cut are 5/16" soft and 3/16" hardened. If the cutters are going to live in your garage I would go with something bigger and has better leverage. I tried cutting a cheap hardened steel lock. These barely dented the lock but did damage the cutter blade. (See pictures). They work fine on bolts and rebar.

Forged, alloy tool steel jaws are precision ground for sure, efficient cutting and long life. The red steel handles have heavy vinyl grips with flat grips ends for 90 degree cuts. One adjustment realigns cutting edges. I found that I could still use this monster cutter to cut 3/8 rebar, however. The difference with the younger workers, working with rebar and this cutter finds that they do not walk with it, as I do. In their 20's to their late 40's concrete workers actually run around the pour area making multiple cuts, tying the lines together, and actually arguing over who uses the biggest tool. Now I know this sounds like a testosterone show, but this is the tool you really do need, while you are in your prime. By the time you hit the sixty's I would strongly recommend you haul this great tool out of your truck and leave it for those young ones to use or do what I did call over the largest guy in the crew and told him "use it, and see what it can do". This is the tool a concrete crew needs if it has not upgraded to a, rebar power shear, yet. This is the manual tool you need when you do not want to through sparks flying at the buildings or traffic. This 42 inch cutter is a must have when you graduate beyond 5/16 inch rebar work.
