Never seen a combined set but Weidmuller Stripax and a pair of PZ4’s are the panel mans staple.

The blade under the jaws at the top of the handle cuts the wires..
I started using them a few years ago for doing all my control panels, saves me lots of time

electricity is it real or just magic?

this is probably the best if you only do one conductor size, there are no changeover jaws so you buy a tool for each conductor size you want.
there is a vid on the site that shows it in operation. please note this is £1000 per size of cable.
I do A LOT of panel work and have not been able to justify the cost.

The one I use day in and out is the stripax one listed above.

mine are almost same as them, but were £14.99 with a kit of 1200 assorted ferrules included. £170+ jeez. that's a week's beer money.
