Any lineman who has stripped the outer jacket off URD primary cable knows it is tough work that quickly tears up wrists, elbows, and shoulders. It can also take a long time, especially on cable sizes 500 MCM and up. When linemen strip cables with knives or jacket peelers, the blade can dig down into the internal components of the cable and cause that cable to fail much sooner than it should. THE RIPJACK™ solves all these problems!
