Operation (cont’d)
Important Features of All Models
Cutting Procedure—
SRS78X, SRS125X, and SRS138X
• The hydraulic unit incorporates an automatic retraction, which returns the piston and movable blade to
the starting position when the maximum cutting force
is achieved.
• The unit is equipped with a special brake, which stops
the forward motion of the piston when the trigger is
released.
• The cutting heads have been designed to turn 350°
around the longitudinal axis in order to gain the best
access to tight corners and other difficult working
areas.
1. Insert the cable to be cut into the cutting head.
2. Pull the trigger to make the cut.
3. Hold the trigger down until the cutting tool achieves
pressure relief, which is accompanied by an audible
“pop”.
4. The cutting tool returns automatically.
Note: If it is necessary to retract the ram before a
cutting cycle is completed, push the retract button.
Pushing the retract button will result in the complete
retraction of the ram.
Cutting Procedure—SRB47X
1. Check cutting head to ensure the piston and
movable blade are fully retracted. If necessary, pull
the retract slide in the direction of the arrow.
2. After positioning the wire/bolt between the open
cutting blades, actuate the trigger to start the
cutting cycle.
Note: Do not twist work piece or tool during cutting
operation. Blade failure could result.
Note: The cutting process can be interrupted at any
moment by releasing the trigger. By actuating the retract
slide, the piston and movable blade will return to the
starting position.

Cutting Procedure—SRG98X
Head Latch
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
6.
Lift the head latch to open the cutter.
Place the material to be cut between the jaws.
Close the head latch completely.
Align the material at a 90° angle to the blades.
Pull the trigger to make the cut.
Hold the trigger down until the cutting tool achieves
pressure relief, which is accompanied by an audible
“pop”.
7. The cutting tool returns automatically.
Note: If it is necessary to retract the ram before a
cutting cycle is completed, push the retract button.
Pushing the retract button will result in the complete
retraction of the ram.
Cutting Blade
Cutting Head
Sharpening the Blade—SRG98X­­
Edge should be flat
BACK SIDE
Beveled Edge
1. Set blade on flat surface
with beveled edge facing
down (Figure A)
2. Use a sharpening stone to
remove all burrs from back
surface.
FRONT SIDE
Figure A
Flatten this surface.
3. Use a high-speed dremeltype tool to flatten top edge
of blade (approximately
1/32" wide flat).
Do not leave a sharp edge.
This will cause chipping
of cutting surface and will
decrease blade life.
Cutting Procedure—SRG177X
1. Open the head by using the pull pin.
2. Position the cable in the open cutting head.
3.
4. 5.
6.
Close the cutting head and insert pull pin.
Align the material at a 90° angle to the blades.
Pull the trigger to make the cut.
Hold the trigger down until the cutting tool achieves
pressure relief, which is accompanied by an audible
“pop”.
7. The cutting tool returns automatically.
Note: If it is necessary to retract the ram before a
cutting cycle is completed, push the retract button.
Pushing the retract button will result in the complete
retraction of the ram.
