I recently got this new Hybrid to test out. After a month of industrial uses, I must say I love it. I tend to just carry this and my multi screwdriver to most calls now. I have my other tools on the cart just in case, but often times this 5 in 1 is the perfect tool. With a screw cutter for 6-32 and 8-32 it has helped on a few quick box installs. The crimper at the bottom of the tool has helped out nicely when crimping a few lugs this week. I have loved the linesman/strippers/side cutters combo the most though. Having those 3 tools combined together in a hybrid without it being overly heavy or bulky is a thing of beauty. This tool is just the right weight and size for me to carry everywhere I go. Thanks Klein for coming out with this great design. I couldn't be happier to have this in my carry. The strippers and cutters are sharp and cut clean. The gnarled linesman ends make twisting up wires a breeze. I haven't had to twist more than 3-4 at a time yet and nothing more than 10AWG but I am sure it could handle more. Do not hesitate to add this to your bag. You will not regret it. I know I don't.

          Klein’s 8 inch hybrid pliers combine linesman and stripper/crimper into one perfectly balanced plier. Grippy and wide, the knurled tips are perfect for twisting wire, and the built in screw shears work great. The hardened cutting knives go through wire without effort, and the grips feel good, especially nice when you just can’t wear your gloves for whatever reason. These pliers replace two tools, and I like the size and weight. It’s nice to have the strippers clearly labeled on the same tool that cuts the wire, crimps the connecter, and/or twists the leads before being capped and stuffed in the box. The extra knurled face below the crimper is convenient to give things an extra squeeze. If you want a solid tool that lightens your belt and saves the time of switching tools, step into this hybrid plier. And since it’s built in the USA by Klein, you’ll still be using them twenty years down the road, and end up handing them down to the next generation. Built to last also means built to work well, and this plier won’t disappoint.

          This set of pliers is a great step up from standard crimpers or strippers that are either one or the other. I like the wider jaws for twisting connections and the heavier duty cut blade nice for multiple wires. This eliminates the need to use a separate set of side-cutters. The price is a little high at $40 for a do-it-yourself person, but if you wire extensively on personal projects or as a profession then it's money well spent

          A very efficient tool. I used these recently when I was up in my attic doing alot of wiring work. There was a lot of cutting, stripping and crimping going on in a tight space. I have to admit that it took the place of many different tools. They cut and stripped easily and the crimping was solid. It felt comfortable and balanced in my hand - overall a nice addition to any electrician's tool bag.

          These pliers are very comfortable and they are lightweight. They have virtually all the things you would need for an electrical project at home or business. They come complete with the strippers and crimpers and the ends are square so you can twist the wire with those. I am very happy with these pliers and I have put them in my electrical work pouch in place of my lineman pliers. I would recommend these pliers

          This tool is one of several “multiple use” pliers available from Klein. As is typical for Klein tools, these pliers are well made (in the USA), exhibiting a precise feel (no slop in the pivot) with enough moxie to handle tasks at hand (for example easily cutting through 8 awg copper conductors with ease). The molded grips provide a firm yet comfortable feel which conforms to the average hand and, when gripped, provide a neutral balance so the tool does not tend to tip forward or back. Included in the tools features are; side cutter, screw cutter for 6-32 and 8-32 hardware, three (3) wire stripping grooves (marked to indicate which groove to use based on the wire size and type – solid or stranded).The squared nose is knurled in a cross-hatch pattern to make it easier to grip conductors to twist together (even when not required nor desired). To facilitate this, the jaws do not fully come together when the pliers are closed, precluding this as a candidate for grabbing thin sheet metal, for example. An integrally forged crimping die is provided at the rearmost portion of the jaws, intended for uninsulated type terminals and splices. The stripping cutters are a “bypass” type, resulting in a somewhat ragged cut and, when using the designated grooves for the wire size and type, in some cases strands were cut and, for solid conductor, the conductor was nicked. I tried the stripping function on samples of 12 and 14 awg wire, stranded and solid conductor. In all cases, it did not result in a clean strip and undamaged conductor. (For comparison, I tried stripping the same wire samples with a Klein J206-8C which has a similar bypass type cutter for stripping and the results were much better). It should be noted that the wire samples used employed a thermosetting insulation, a more arduous use than, for example, stripping PVC insulation. The crimping die will effect a reasonable crimp, best for temporary or non-critical functions, when a proper crimping die is not available. With the exception of the stripping jaws, this is a well made tool whose usefulness will depend upon the task(s) at hand, due to the limited stripping capability (10-14 awg, solid and 12-16 awg stranded).

          I like the design of these electrical pliers very much. In particular, the jaws are longer and slightly more narrow than any I have owned in the past. With a houseful of worn outlets and obsolete switches, replacing components in a crowded box is typical project. The extra reach afforded by the jaw design has come in very useful more than once - a prior installer was very fond of short leads. As a DIY, I don't stray outside of basic circuits wired with 12 or 14 gauge. Having the strippers integral to the pliers is very handy. The jaw tips are double hashed diagonally, making an excellent grip when twisting wires together. For most purposes, these pliers will replace two tools in my belt - my old pliers and old stripper.

          Handy!! great for the trades, or a DIY that wants one tool that does it all. basically you have a pair of lineman pliers mixes with a good set of wire strippers. can strip 10-14 solid wire or 12-16 stranded, shear screws 6-32 & 8-32. built in crimper. Very heavy duty! very aggressive Jaws in the front for pulling or twisting. Large cutting blades. the only criticism i have is that this is a professional grade electrical tool & it is NOT insulated!!?? would have been easy enough to make it insulated.

                    Great combo item, but don't toss your cutters
                    I bought these to replace lost 9" lineman's pliers and since I rarely work with wire heavier than 10g, they are great. But don't leave your basic cutters behind, these do not get in to a tight device box to trim as well as the 8" diagonal cutters. Nor would I ditch the NMD-90 Cable Stripper/Cutter as stripping off 14/2 sleeve is a breeze with those. So it is not a one tool does all scenario, but it strips 10g with little effort and I can not see using basic linesman's pliers again, at least for my needs.

                      Klein Tools
                      I purchased a copy of these 1/2020, for a job. I carried these instead of my lineman pliers (K.-T. J2000-9NE-CRFTP), they did the same function as lineman pliers. They are very handy, less the weight, as I was helping hang ceiling lights @w a 12ft. ladder. I showed my dad, and older cousin my pair, later I purchased them their own copies. Klein Tools also does a similar model, J2078CR.
