Kent Precision Window Cutter

Group 1 1
Group 1 1

Description

This smart-lightweight pneumatically operated cutter has been specifically designed to quickly and safely make both longitudinal and circumferential cuts in most pipe materials, particularly Ductile Iron and Steel pipe, thereby allowing a window or section to be cut from the pipe wall to gain access to a previously inserted PE pipe or any other service line. The purpose of the “window” is to allow a service connection to the PE gas pipeline. 

The cutter is suitable for pipe sizes from 40mm OD with a wall thickness of up to 20mm. The standard unit will make longitudinal cuts up to 250mm (longer lengths available).
