Milwaukee's Latest Innovation: American-Made Cutting Pliers and Screwdrivers
Breaking Ground with American Manufacturing
Milwaukee proudly announces a groundbreaking development in the world of hand tools. Their brand-new line of cutting pliers is manufactured entirely in the United States, specifically in West Bend, Wisconsin. What's even more impressive is their commitment to sourcing a significant portion of raw materials domestically, marking a momentous achievement worthy of celebration. With these exceptional American-made hand tools, Milwaukee boldly steps up to outperform their top competitors, such as Knipex, Klein, Wiha, and Wera, renowned for their top-tier hand tools. It's a promise that's making waves in the industry. While their existing imported Milwaukee hand tools remain available at a mid-range price point, the introduction of these USA-made models is a game-changer.
Revolutionary Cutting Pliers
Elevating the Standard for Cutting Pliers
Cutting pliers are the unsung heroes of various trades, used for wire and cable cutting, material manipulation, reaming, crimping, bolt cutting, knockout removal, and more. Milwaukee's latest release ushers in a new era with six cutting-edge lineman's pliers, six diagonal pliers, and two long nose pliers, all engineered to surpass any competition in the market.
Addressing the Key Pain Points
Common complaints about cutting pliers often revolve around issues like cutting capacity, blade and tooth longevity, and ease of use. Milwaukee has meticulously addressed these concerns to create cutting pliers tailored to the needs of professionals.
Crafting the Perfect Cutting Pliers

The handles provide a comfortable grip designed to effortlessly cut through wiring and tough materials with minimal effort. The curved design of these pliers supports your hand from both the front and back, allowing you to apply more force for those demanding cuts.
