Which tool for SEU?


I'm installing a new load center. The new panel is located a few inches further away from the entrance into the basement so I need to replace the service entrance. What tool do you use to cut and strip 2-2-2 SEU?
TIA

A cable cutter for cutting. A razor knife for stripping. A hacksaw can be used instead of a cable cutter.

Thanks. That's easy, I thought it would be more than that.

I use a regular lineman pliers to cut #2AL. A small cable cutter is easier though.
