General Purpose Lineman's Pliers
General purpose lineman's pliers cut, pull, and twist wire and cable in applications where insulated or non-sparking pliers aren't required. They also bend or straighten sheet metal, remove staples and fasteners, and compress links and collars. Also known as combination pliers, they have a gripping zone near the tip of the jaws and side cutters above the hinge. Their tapered head reams pipe ends to remove burs and smooth the inside lip.
