Overview of new WIHA products in our portfolio

Combination pliers by Wiha

Z 05 0 06_160 (26720) are combination pliers that are 160 mm long, they are also known as needle nose pliers and are excellent for gripping, handling and cutting cables and wires.

Combined pointed pliers’ type Z 05 1 09_200 (35462) are 200 mm long. They are very similar to the previous pliers, however, their tip is bent by about 40°. They are equally suitable for gripping, handling, and cutting off cables.

Cutting nippers by Wiha

Unique Wiha cutting nippers that save working time, as well as space in the work bag, are the installation pliers from the TriCut professional series known as TriCut Z14 1 06 (38552).

We can cut the cable, take off its sheath, and strip out the separate cores with just one tool. We can work even in cramped spaces, like installation boxes in walls and the like, thanks to the bent head.

Other pliers by Wiha

Flat pliers type Z 07 0 06_160 (26732) have a length of 160 mm and are mainly intended for handling wires and bending them to a right angle. Moreover, they are also suitable for bending sheet metal. 

Round pliers that can be found under the name of Z 09 0 06_160 (26735) are long pliers with a round nose intended mainly for gripping, manipulating and shaping the wires, e.g. into the shape of an “eye”, as well as for working with sheet metal.

The specially angled plier head ensures that cables are stripped and skinned lengthwise along the cable and pliers, using an ergonomic approach that saves users from applying excessive force. The TriCut thus offers a decisive advantage over other pliers, especially in confined spaces such as junction and distribution boxes.
