About Cutler Hammers

You probably know the saying that if you have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Cutler-Hammer doesn't approach problems that way. The company offers the right solution to every electrical problem, not just one solution for every problem. It began with motor starters back in the 19th century, and since then has branched into every area of electrical control and distribution. Do you need a place to charge an electric car? Cutler-Hammer has you covered. It's all about safety. Just as a motor starter prevents overloads from starting fires and burning out electric motors, circuit breakers provide electrical safety in the home. Try to draw more power than the wires can handle and you'll trip the breaker, opening the circuit. It may seem like a nuisance to have to go back and flip the breaker, but the peace of mind is worth it. You can find all the electrical parts you need on eBay, whether modern or vintage. Just don't trip—your breakers that is.
