WTF is this crap?

I am a Home depot guy, but Lowes is much closer to my house...
Stopped in to get a new tape and channel loc's

Stopped over the electrical section and ALL their Knipex and Greenlee
Ideal meters are off the shelves and stocked up with Southwire.....

No tools as of yet, the Website is still being built
Link Posted: 8/11/2013 8:30:58 AM EST
Yeah they have moved to "home owner grade" I used to get a lot of Greenlee and Ideal stuff from there to send overseas for work. Now I just buy online and avoid the hassle and sales tax.

I do go to HD if I need some Ridgid tools though

The only good thing about Lowes was that they had Knipex. I'll have to check to see if I can grab some clearance items this week.

Southwire has been around for decades. At least when I used to work for UL, they were owned by Leviton.

Their handtools suck. And "suck" is a generous word for how crappy they are.

I have had my Kline ratchet cutters fail twice. They fixed them, but it would have sucked if my buddy was not around with his.

For $400 I figure they would hold up better.

It's not their screwdrivers that are the problem for me, it's their pliers and cutters

I'm a commercial electrician, and just bought a Southwire meter to try out. I've had fluke, ideal (biggest pile of junk ever), greenlee, and recently a Klein. The Southwire seems to be doing just fine. It's the 1000amp AC/DC true RMS. the greenlee and ideal used to tell me lies about voltage and resistance.

Having had too many tools destroyed on construction sites, I quit using my flukes for everyday use. As for a "disposable" meter, I had my Klein for 3 years without a problem until it grew legs, and after two weeks, the Southwire has been worth the $115 I spent on it


For hand tools, I'll stick with Klein. Would go knipex, but I like being able to go in nearly any supply house and swap something out if the need arises

Copper 646mcm dlo. And 4awg 3/c. VFD cable.

Cutter is German made 63060.

The sprig on the ratchet pawl falls out. So does the one between the grips, but I can still use them when that happens.

I gave up on Klein after their diagonal cutter tips kept breaking off. That was over a 3 year span, and about 20 different pairs. Their screwdrivers have sucked for a while IMO. But they are still better than Southwire.

The gap between my lineman's jaws is so wide they won't hold on to a piece of metal stud.
My lineman's and diagonal cutters were so hard to open and close I had to use almost a whole can of WD40 to get them to drop open with 0 input from me.
My Knipex have been flawless on all respects.

I'm having a hard time deciding which cutters in Knipex's line I'll get for cutting BX

That cutter is rated for 400 MCM CU max, which is meant to be building wire or "compact conductor" type cable. I realize the DLO cable is finely stranded and should "give" easier than building wire, but have to wonder if the 646 DLO cable is too much for the Klein 63069 cutter and causing it fo fail.

The Klein 63750 would probably hold up better.

We have told Klein what it failed on. They fixed it. They just said the cut would not be as clean.

The actual cutter and ratchet are fine. It is just the return spring on the pawl and the return spring between the grips.

Cargo pants are a must.

I'm thinking of getting a tool bag too. Use the pouch for when I'm up a ladder or cisorlift or something.
