PLAS In-Line Rotary Pipe Cutters
- Safe to use as it creates no dust and chips fall where they are cut. There is no danger of chips being blown well into pipe.
- Only 6"-8" clearance needed to turn PLAS tool around pipe.
- Cuts out-of-round pipe because of spring loaded nuts.
- With PVC models, simultaneously cut and bevel PVC using cut-off blade and bevel blade.
- Inexpensive tool for contractors to make a cut for a tie-in or pipe break and then get the line back in use. Reduce overall labor costs!

PLAS In-Line Rotary Cutters are excellent for cutting 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, making them easy to operate in trench and with lower prep costs. 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 cutting PVC pipe, the long-lasting carbide-tipped blades penetrate up to a 2” wall thickness. For cutting PE pipe**, REED developed a hardened, tool steel blade for best cutting results. The engineered blade tip drives chips out of the way while cutting PE. 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 04470, 04475, 04480 and 04485; can also be added to PE models. Contact REED for details.
**PLAS Cutter Specific Limitations for PE:
up to 14" pipe (355 mm) - 2" (51 mm) wall thickness
up to 18" pipe (500 mm) - 1 1/2" (38 mm) wall thickness
up to 28" pipe (800 mm) - 1" (25.4 mm) wall thickness
Proprietary tool cuts square on even the largest plastic pipe up to 28” (800 mm).
