from Rossville, GA asked:
February 22, 2018
I intend to cut #16 "Jack-Chain". This cutter looks as though it may be ideal as a manual product. A consideration may be how tiring using a hammer would be after hours use at a time. What weight of drop would be necessary to clean cut that grade of wire used in that chain?
1 Answer
Unfortunately we do not have specific information regarding the use of this cutter and the chain you have. But, since this cutter is rated to cut up to 3/4" wire rope, it should have no problem cutting your #16 chain. The only possible issue could be if the chain is too small and soft, it may binder where the blade sinks into the base, but we would not have a way of testing that.
