If you've got 'em.  Unfortunately, I don't...and a bolt cutter that's large
to cut enough EHS runs about $100.  Personally, I wrap electrical tape
around the EHS on both sides of where I want to cut it, then use a
steel-cutting blade on a Skill saw.  Those blades are dirt cheap, which
suits me fine.
