The Future of Cable Stripping
The new M12 and M18 Cable Strippers from Milwaukee continue their tradition of jobsite safety and productivity. With no exposed blades knife injuries while stripping wire becomes a thing of the past. The right-angle design, bushings, and adjustable depth deliver a controlled and accurate solution for faster stripping across multiple cables. Additionally, the compacted size of the tool makes for easy access to tight spaces while reducing operator fatigue—especially when getting into those crowded panels. And with both a M12 & M18 option electricians on either system can easily add either solution to their repertoire. Check out how it works:
The problem with removing the outer jacket from wire with a knife is obvious—potential hand cutting or serious injury. Stop dealing with cuts in your hands that are now easily avoided. This makes the rest of your workday easier, and your personal life more enjoyable. In addition, the optimized brushing design prevents pesky nicks. However, if that isn’t a huge issue to you, you can at least appreciate the quick-change bushings which are compatible whether you are doing commercial electrician work or power utility applications. But if you can get 375+ strips with a knife, like you can with each Milwaukee blade, without cutting your hand once you must be incredibly gifted or not working at a fast-enough pace.
Solutions for Any Electrician
Back to the bushings, using Copper and Aluminum THHN/XHHW and/or RHW/RHH/USE bushing sets which range from 1/0 to 750 MCM cable sizes there is now a solution for any type of electrician doing any type of secondary stripping all in one place. And you guessed it—all Milwaukee Bushings, and industry standard quick-change bushings, are compatible between both M18 and M12 Cable Strippers.
In conclusion, Milwaukee continues to show they invest in their users by not only making their work easier and more efficient—but putting your safety at number 1, 2, and 3 in their list of priorities. They want you to feel good about the tools you’re using which gives you confidence to work with haste and precision.
