[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have, on occasion, needed a larger bolt cutter than the one I currently own. This 30" cutter will definitely do the job - see picture comparison. This bolt cutter will cut soft metals up to 1/2" in diameter and hard metals up to 3/8" in diameter. At 30" in length, you have the leverage you need for those thicker cuts. You also have comfort grips handles. This is a beast of a bolt cutter that should take care of the majority of your cutting needs.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You better have some muscles if you are planning to use the Milwaukee 30 in. Bolt Cutter to cut a ½ inch bolt. Before getting the Milwaukee 30-inch bolt cutter, I had a 14-inch bolt cutter to remove barb wire strung across my property. That was easy work cutting soft 1/8-inch barb wire. I had a chance to get the 30-inch bolt cutter and I thought that would complete my cutter options. I wanted to put the 30-inch bolt cutter to a test and just happened to have a short length of ½ inch all thread rod. The cutters cut the ½ inch bolt, but it took a special setup and body weight to shear the bolt (see the attached pictures). I suppose if you are built like a body builder, cutting a ½ bolt might not be very hard. For me it took some work. I also cut a ¼ inch diameter piece of mild steel and that I could do with arm strength. I was able to cut the bolt, but where the bolt was cut, it was a beveled. To use the remaining length of all thread I had to grind the end of the rod using a bench grinder. I also had to use a ½ inch nut to back off the end of the all thread to clean up the threads. I suppose, if you are cutting a piece of chain or maybe a lock the shape of the cut doesn’t matter. I have not cut enough large bolts to know how important this is, but the Milwaukee Cutters have 2 special cam bolts to adjust the spacing of cutter jaw. I took some pictures of the cam bolts. I also showed the assembly of the jaws where the cam bolts are located. I give the bolt cutter a 5 out of 5 stars for cutting that ½ inch bolt. But at the same time, I think I will probably be using a Sawzall with a high strength carbide blade like the Milwaukee Torch metal cutting blade for the next ½ bolt I need to cut.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a 30-ft. long heavy duty chain, at my farm. I use it to pull fallen trees out of the creek. I had a solidly rusted quick link, with a 5/16" diameter steel thickness, I wanted to remove. I used this SUPER HEAVY DUTY bolt cutter to remove it. I also had a heavily rusted 7/16" dia. steel threaded bolt, that was attached to another coupler. I also cut off that bolt using this bolt cutter. Because the bolt was hardened steel, I had to lay one of the bolt cutter handles on the ground and push down on the other handle, to cut through the bolt. The bolt cutter's steel blade cutting edges, were not marred, or damaged, in any way, after the cuts. The overall length, of the bolt cutter, is 31 1/8". The 1 5/8" length of the steel cutting blades, provided plenty of cutting surface. The long steel handles gave me lots of leverage for cutting. The ribbed, non-slip grips, at the ends of the handles, are 7 1/2" long & comfortable to hold onto. The grips have 3/8" dia. reinforced holes, near the ends of the handles, I found handy for hanging this heavy tool. The bolt lock did not loosen, was easy to access & adjust. This is a highest quality tool.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first bolt cutter and probably the last one I'll ever need. Construction is super sturdy and it does not flex at all. It is pretty heavy, but that is to be expected given it's size. The blades are adjustable to some degree and there's also an adjustment for the arm closure. So far I've cut a few old padlocks with it, small bolts (under 3/8"), chain link fencing, and, for testing purposes, I tried cutting a piece of 3/8" rebar. I'll admit that even with the leverage that the long arms provide, it took some serious effort, but it got the job done. Always remember to wear safety glasses and gloves. The small piece of rebar that I cut went flying about 10 feet!

Will this tool cut 1/2 inch rebar?

Will this tool cut 1/2 inch rebar?
Asked by: Ferguson
1/2" is the upper limit. Someone with a lot of upper body strength might make it work. I personally would look for ratcheting cutters or a cordless angle grinder.

How much to rent

Asked by: Rahanae
I don’t believe Home Depot rents tools so contact your local tool rental business and ask them how much to rent a 30” bolt cutter.
