Lighter and more ergonomic: Holmatro launches new 5000 series cutters

Lighter and more ergonomic than ever, without any concessions on performance: Holmatro introduces the first two models of its new 5000 series cutters. The most important factors in the development of these cutters were weight reduction and improved ergonomics, while maintaining an optimal cutting performance on modern cars. This has been achieved through a combination of new materials, component integration and innovative design. Being much lighter than the previous generation, the new 5000 series cutters significantly reduce the physical burden on the operator. This burden is even further reduced by one special model, the Inclined Cutter. Both models are also available with Greenline battery technology for increased freedom of movement.

Designed for more ergonomic cutting high and low on the car, this cutter with its inclined jaw eliminates the need to lift the tool high up for a roof cut or to bend over deeply to cut the rocker panel. Working with the Inclined Cutter also means there’s more space for the tool to move towards the car when you cut a pillar from the side. And with the carrying handle going all-around, you can always use this cutter in its most favorable position, at all sides of the vehicle. The CU 5050 i too has been tested extensively on the latest prototypes.

Optimal performance on modern cars

The models currently introduced (CU 5050 and CU 5050 i) are New Car Technology cutters, offering an optimal cutting performance on modern vehicles. Contributing features are:

  • New Car Technology (NCT) blades. These U-shaped blades can surround wide pillars and automatically pull the material into the cutting recess, close to the central bolt, where it is cut at the strongest point of the tool.
  • Optimized cutting edge. We’ve further optimized the cutting edge of our NCT blades for a longer blade life and the best possible performance on modern cars.
  • The i-Bolt. This flat central bolt construction squeezes the blades together directly (no blade holder in between!) and more tightly. This results in a better cutting performance. It also gives you the advantage of better access into narrow spaces.
