Bought this to use as a fence cutting tool. I am cutting 4 gauge Cattle panels. It took care of them quickly & without strain. I also listened to advise from another reviewer about picking up & trying a few in the bin. I also strongly advise of this coz the 1st 4 where rather tight. I am sure with time they would break in... I just opted to buy 1 that seemed a bit smoother without me having to "work" it. Overall it is an outstanding tool for what I used it for & I would recommend it whole heartedly. Included pictures of Cattle Panels for an Idea.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting
The bolt cutter worked very well on a Masterlock. Didn't take much effort at all to make the cut. When I was buying it, I tried the cutter to see how it opened. Two of them were extremely hard to open, started not to buy, but tried the 3rd and 4th ones in the bin. The 3rd one opened better and the forth one was easy to open, as it should be. I'd recommend it, but I'd also advise to check it before buying.
I work in a commercial kitchen. One day, while my boss was across the street picking up an item not shipped for a party that night, I asked him to pick me up a set of bolt cutters under $25 to cut some chain in my garage. He brought this monstrosity back. Fast forward a few weeks, and these cutters easily handled my chain at home as well as cutting over a dozen locks from abandoned lockers at work and cutting out the folding compartment of a few shopping carts we use to move food products. While I'm sure there are better cutters out there (I'm worried the handles will eventually bend), you just cant beat the quality you get with this pair for the price.
I run a drop in center and we sometimes have to cut people's combination locks off of our lockers. These bolt cutters are fine with the cheaper locks that aren't made out of tempered steel, but if it's a Master lock or better, these bolt cutters can't handle it. For most of our needs, though, these are fine. They're of a good size and the handles are well padded.
I was worried that I would not be able to actually cut through a lock with these because I'm a woman, BUT no worries with these. I was very surprised when the lock popped off. Very little effort was needed.
Just bought these today to remove a couple of locks with the toughest one being your typical Master lock combination lock. It went through them with ease. It took a bit of effort on the Master lock - that being what I would consider the toughest of the group but I definitely surprised how easily it cut.
For the money, these cutters work real well. The lock on my shed (Master) refused to open in the cold. Was about ten years old so I decided it was time for a new one. Saw these at HD for $20 and was a snap cutting of the lock. Good value....

Good leverage, poor blades
PostedJune 29, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
The leverage of these cutters is good but the blades themselves aren't that strong. Even worse, they're not replaceable, when they get dinged, you have to purchase a new cutter. Blades are what bolt cutters are all about. Tried to cut hardened masonry nails and just ended up with big dents in the blades and no noticeable effect on the (rusty) nails themselves. Ordinary nails aren't a problem.
I'd wanted a descent set of bolt cutters for a while now, and was just looking for a good excuse. We just moved into a new home, and the shed still had a padlock for which we weren't given a key. Perfect! This was a Master Lock, which I'd heard was a harder steel to cut through. I was a bit worried that these less-expensive cutters might have a problem. But I was pleasantly surprised when they sliced through the lock on the first squeeze without a terrible amount of effort. No noticable damage to the cutter blades as some people have reported. These are nice heavy duty cutters for the price. I plan on using them later this summer when I install about 300' of chain link fencing.

even though they worked and did the job i wished they carried a larger pair as it was still very tough to cut the chain i had bought from home depot. the great part who ever try to steal whats chained up will be in for a very hard time, enough time for me to show up at least.
Within my line of work, we are constantly moving customers around. In doing that, there are a number of times where a customer has lost the keys to their lockers or their laptop cable locks.
I use to borrow some bolt cutters from another location within our company and the need for them was getting more and more frequent. Since the bolt cutters have come in handy many times, I decided to place an order with Home Depot for the same bolt cutters that are used in our other location.
An email confirmation of the order arrived within minutes of placing it.
The order was delivered on the date specified and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Used it for my dogs pen. Worked great on chain link fenching. I also had to make a length of chain to lock the pen. Thick chain was handled well by the bolt cutters. No damage to the cutting blades. They are heavy duty and should handle most of what you throw at them.
I bought these cutters to assist me with removing a great deal of chain link fence. They made quick work of the fence with little effort. They appear to be well made and I look forward to a lifetime of use from them.
