Cable Cutters Kit
Ultimate protection for your pilot and helicopter against wire strikes in the field.
The Cable Cutters kit provides a means of protecting the helicopter during a wire strike by providing the capability to cut a cable or wire before catastrophic damage occurs. The kit is designed to reduce the possibility of a cable or wire entering the cockpit and to reduce the chance of flight control damage. Similar cable/wire cutting devices have proven to be effective even during multiple wire strikes. The kit incorporates both an upper and lower cutter and each cutter is designed with high strength cutting blades. The Apical cutter design was tested to verify the capability to cut a cable having a 14,000 lb. tensile strength. The kits are configured for Bell mediums with standard or high landing gear. An optional GPS Antenna Mount Kit is also available. Apical manufactures cable cutter kits for the Bell 206/407, Bell 204/205/212, Bell 214/412 as well as the EC135/145, and AS350.
