PLAS Hand-over-Hand Rotary Pipe Cutters
- Excellent for cutting PVC or PE pipe in-trench or above ground.
- Attached handles permit fast hand-turning – about half the cutting time of a regular PLAS cutter.
- Leaves a disposable remnant (not dust or chips) that is easy to recycle.
- With PVC models, simultaneously cut and bevel PVC using cut-off blade and bevel blade.
- Simple to transport and fast to use on PE and PVC.

Exclusive to REED, PLAS Hand-over-Hand Rotary Cutters excel at cutting 4” to 12” (106 - 335 mm) diameter PVC or PE pipe in-trench or above ground. They feature attached handles which permit fast hand-turning. With the cutter around the pipe, the operator turns it for one revolution, feeds the cut-off blade closer to the pipe, and continues turning/feeding as needed. These OH models require 11" (280 mm) clearance. Attached handles means there is no need to reposition a handle after each turn, compared to a regular PLAS model. Plus, the built-in handle convenience equals no loose parts.
Outboard rollers keep the cutter aligned on pipe, ensuring a square cut every time. Each PLAS cutter also can produce, in-line with the cut, a 15° bevel on both sides of the pipe using bevel blade PLAS4B*. For PVC pipe, the long-lasting carbide-tipped blades penetrate up to a 2” wall thickness. For PE pipe**, REED developed a hardened, tool steel blade. The engineered blade tip drives chips out of the way, making PE cuts easy to accomplish. PLAS In-Line Rotary Cutters can retrofit from PVC to PE or vice versa with alternate PLAS In-Line Rotary Pipe Cutter Blades.
*Bevel blade PLAS4B included with PVC models 04463 and 04469; blade can also be added to PE models. Contact REED for details.
**PLAS cutters will cut PVC and PE Pipe. Specific limitations for PE are as follows:
2” (38.1 mm) wall thickness PE - up to 12” pipe
