PLAS In-Line Rotary Cutters are excellent for cutting 4” to 28” (110 - 800 mm) diameter PVC or PE pipe in-trench or above ground. Each PLAS rotary cutter needs just 6” to 8” (153 - 203 mm) clearance around the pipe. Outboard rollers keep the cutter aligned on pipe, ensuring a square cut every time. The tool’s carbide-tipped blades for PVC are long-lasting and penetrate up to a 2” wall thickness. Each PVC cutter also can produce, in-line with the cut, a 15° bevel on both sides of the cut. In addition, Reed has developed a hardened, tool steel blade to cut PE pipe. The curved blade drives chips out of the way, making PE cuts much easier. Regular PLAS in-line rotary cutters can be retrofitted for PE by purchasing the new blade (#94485) separately.
PLASOH and PLASOHPE models feature smaller outside diameter (O.D.) and attached handles which permit fast hand-turning. The "OH" models require 11" (280 mm) clearance around the pipe.
PLAS large diameter plastic pipe cutter will cut PVC and PE Pipe. For best results on PE, choose the NEW PE PLAS models. Specific limitations for PE are as follows: 2” wall thickness PE - up to 14” pipe, 1 1/2” wall thickness PE - up to 18” pipe, 1” wall thickness PE - up to 28” pipe.
