Milwaukee Tools Introduces Next Generation of 6 in 1 Combo Pliers Milwaukee Tool introduces the next generation of its market-leading 6 in 1 combination wire pliers. The new lineup consists of 6 in 1 pliers for both metallic and non-metallic wire, and have been completely redesigned from the groundup to deliver even more innovation to the user – from long nose plier applications to reaming pipe, cutting wire, stripping wire, making loops, cutting bolts. “When we first launched the 6 in 1 combination pliers, it was a new-to-world design that completely eliminated the need for users to carry multiple tools in their belt. This tool delivered immense productivity to our users,” said Bobby Shaw, Director of Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “After listening to these users, we’ve now fully redesigned this tool to make it even more efficient than the original. We expanded the wire stripping capacity, included an all-metal swing lock, designed a longer curved cutting blade, and improved the handle ergonomics.” In response to the growth of the residential market, Milwaukee® has also designed a version of these new pliers that is ideal for work with non-metallic wire. • The ARS711 Hydraulic Puller The ARS711 hydraulic puller from Condux Tesmec is ideal for a wide range of pulling applications including power transmission and distribution cable installation.
