FOR PE PIPE THICKER THAN SDR17: Robust Guillotine Pipe Cutters are designed to cut PE pipe thicker than SDR17 within 1/8” (3 mm) of square on up to 12” (350 mm) medium and high-density pipe so that no facing is needed for electrofusion and only minimal facing for butt fusion joints. Its durable, Teflon®-coated blade makes many square cuts with no chips to clog valves and small openings. Blades are easy to sharpen or replace.
FOR PE PIPE SDR17 AND THINNER: Exclusive to Reed, this innovative tool, HPC8TN Guillotine Pipe Cutter, is designed specifically to cut without deforming or crushing thin wall pipe, yet retains all the advantages of Reed's standard Guillotine Cutter. The thin wall cutter works by simply rocking the tool on its built-in wheels around the firmly anchored PE pipe, thus effectively slicing the wall of the pipe without crushing it. HPC8TN requires 30°- 60° swing and up to 6” clearance around pipe to get the cut started. Once the wall has been breached, the remainder of the cut is made in the normal way. Blades can be sharpened or replaced.
