How to cut rebar with bolt cutters
Cutting rebar with bolt cutters like these is surprisingly easy thanks to the quality blades and the leverage provided by the long handles. To see how to cut rebar with bolt cutters, watch the video below, or continue reading.
1. Wear appropriate safety equipment and eye protection.
2. Measure and mark your rebar where you need to cut.
3. Lay the bolt cutter on its side, so that one handle is on the ground and the other is pointing up.
4. Place the rebar between the blades of the manual bolt cutter.
5. Brace the bottom handle with your foot and press down on the top handle with both hands until the blades cut through the rebar.
Please remember that rebar cutters use a tremendous force to cut through these thick steel rods, in this case, with a diameter of as much as 16 mm. Because of this, smaller pieces of rebar can shoot out from the cutter. Always use caution, wear protective equipment, and consult the bolt cutter manual for important information.
Advantages of cutting rebar with bolt cutters
Few tools are as versatile and convenient as manual rebar bolt cutters. For one thing, you don’t have to worry about having access to a source of electricity at your job site; you can use this bolt cutter practically anywhere. And speaking of taking your tools anywhere, a manual bolt cutter is much more portable than an electric or petrol motorized cutter. There is also far less maintenance involved with human-powered equipment. Finally, rebar bolt cutters are nearly silent compared to rebar cutting saws or angle grinders, and manual cutters even more so.
