Roughneck launches ‘best of both worlds’ bolt cutters

Olympia Tools has extended its product offer with another innovative solution.

The business – which distributes hand tools and workwear under the Roughneck brand – has launched a new range of bolt cutters which draw on intelligent design and advanced raw materials to offer ‘the best of both worlds’.

The new Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters are lightweight and consequently easy to carry and easy to use yet still remarkably heavy duty. They can make light work of cutting through chains, padlocks, bolts, nuts, rods, wire mesh and many other materials.

Like most Roughneck products, the Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters owe their impressive characteristics to a number of carefully considered features.

This includes jaws made from chrome molybdenum rather than more commonplace and lower cost chrome vanadium or carbon steel.

The use of chrome molybdenum, which is a high-grade material, ensures major advantages in terms of strength, durability and corrosion resistance.

The new Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters also employ steel handles which are hollow as opposed to solid. This enables them to offer their major savings in weight but without any compromise on strength – or performance.

Further features include large double injected soft-grips for increased user comfort as well as jaws which are easily adjustable for quick realignment.

In addition, the new Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters utilise a compound action to optimise leverage levels.

Keen to help builder’s merchants and other stockists enjoy strong sales from its latest product, Olympia Tools has also given careful consideration to the appearance of the Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters and its packaging.

In both instances, a focus on strong aesthetics helps to enhance impact at the point of purchase as well as merchandising possibilities.

The new Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters are also supplied with a comprehensive instruction booklet to help users maximise tool performance and longevity. This provides useful information on topics such as tool adjustment and care.

The new Roughneck bolt cutters are available in five sizes – 350mm, 450mm, 600mm, 750mm and 900mm.

Speaking of the latest addition to the Roughneck range, Vahe Der Kureghian, purchasing and marketing director at Olympia Tools, said: “As a brand, Roughneck has become synonymous with innovative hand tools that help to simplify or speed up common trade and DIY tasks.

“Our new Roughneck Professional Bolt Cutters will only add to that reputation. They have been specifically designed and expertly engineered to offer users a new and better choice.”
