Rated 2 out of 5 by from Multi- tool Linsman I have been using these linesman's pliers for about a week now. I would give them a 5 out of ten.They have been alright so far nothing to write home about. I have been using them mainly on 10 and 12 gauge wire.I do have one job going that we are using #2 solid wire.I thought I would put the pliers through their passes. I should not have cut #2 with the pliers. They are now hard to open and close. On the good side, they are lightweight. It is nice to have more than one tool in a single tool. Less weight to carry.The are alright all around. I don't think at this point I would buy another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality set of linemans The tool is solid and not overly heavy in the hand. Not a fan of the color scheme but that doesn't hold this review back. What is a problem for me is the lack of information on the reverse side of the pliers so you have to switch the pliers in your hand to see the settings. I would also like to see a threaded slot for cutting or "shearing" screws. Strips stranded and solid wire with ease but even the cheaper competition does that freash out of the box i would like to do a follow up review once i really get some use out of them Overall good tool. Not great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi tool I was looking to buy a new pair of linesman and i came across the southwire linesman pliers combo. It was definitely a great choice. The 6 in 1 features make it the perfect addition to the tool bag. Not having to use multiple tools for a simple job definitely helps get the job done quicker. This is my first southwire tool and it will not be my last. You have a customer for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy and light. I've twice, returned these to Lowe's based on the warranty. Pro: The reamer fits .5 .75 1.0" emt and works fine. They are light, the Strippers are incredibly sharp and hold the edge. Threaded screw trimmer is solid. Con: the cutter is undersized and dull. Very hard to cut 4 12ga solid wire conductors. Cutting edge is not long or sharp enough. The cavity behind cutting edge it's small, limiting cutting capabilities and capacities I would certainly buy the 9" if they decide to make one. For heavier use. I use these in tandem with the 5n1 needle nose ALL DAY LONG replaced a lot bulk. This one tool means I'm not hauling around or misplacing multiple tools above a hard lid. As I cycle through linemans to cut all conductors, strippers, needle nose to bond box then linemans again to grip and twist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-functional tool! This is one of my favorite tools so far. It greatly minimizes the amount of tools when I am on a job. The pliers feel really good in my hand and have good grip. You can tell this is a quality tool by its weight and smooth operation. I cut #12, #10 and #8 stranded wire with this tool and I got a clean cut almost every time. Sometimes it took a little extra force to bite through the insulation, but once I did, the insulation came off cleanly with no strand loss or wire knicking. The conduit reamer on the pliers surface is a nice touch too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Multi-Tool These linesman pliers worked well and seem to be well built. They would be perfect for residential or light commercial. Pros: They did a great job reaming EMT 1/2 - 1". I was pleasantly surprised the wire strippers worked so well. It stripped some 8 AWG without any trouble. They had good grip for twisting solid conductors together. Light weight makes them pretty easy to carry. Cons: I was disappointed about the cutting power the pliers had. It took me more effort than I would have liked to cut some 10 AWG NM. I think that if the handles were longer it would take of the cutting issue plus it would alviate hand fatigue you get with the shorter pliers. It would have been nice to see them with a crimper on them too. That would make them more marketable for the folks in the industrial locations. Lastly, I think they could have done a better job with their looks. They look pretty plain Jane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need from a pair of pliers This pair of lineman are great. They cut wire and nails with easy without chipping the cutting edge. The handle is very big and comfortable so they you may be able to apply as much force as you want to. There is no slop in them at all and don't bind up. The teeth bite down hard and won't let what you are working with slip. The added features such as the thread cutters are very nice and work as they should not boogering up the threads. Overall I am very pleased with these. They have earned a spot in my main everyday carry tool bag.

I have bought 3 different pieces and they all have the same issue - the plier nose/teeth don't close completely. There is always a small gap. This is NOT good if you're trying to grap on or crimp smaller wires. I wish I got one like in the picture.

Asked by: Thi Tran
The side cutting pliers do not close completely at the head. The cutting blades needs to “mate” completely for clean cutting of copper and aluminum wires. Please contact customer service at 1-855-798-6657 for more assistance. Thank you.
