Weighing only 44 lbs. (N450), the lightweight cutter with field durable cast aluminum design is easy to set up and operate. It fits onto the pipe using a set of wheeled chains and drive belts, needing only 10” of clearance around the pipe. A gas-powered hydraulic power pack with a hydraulic pump delivering 5 gallons per minute 2000 psi sold separately is required to power the cutter around the pipe. Typical cutting speed is about 5” per minute. It can cut 12” cast iron pipe in about 8 minutes. The average blade life is around 20 cuts on 20” Cast Iron or 10 cuts on 20” steel depending on pipe condition. A plug-in water coolant tank mists water directly onto the blade during operation to prolong blade service life.
