The Exact PipeCut system from Exact Pipe Tools features six saw models (170E, 220E, 280E, 360E, P400 and V1000) designed to cut steel, plastic, copper, cast iron, stainless steel and multi-layer pipes.


Model 170E is made to cut pipe from 0.6 to 6.7 inches O.D. (steel wall 0.31, plastic wall 0.55 inches) while model 360E, the largest saw in the line, cuts 3- to 14-inch pipe (0.4-inch steel wall, 1.5-inch plastic wall). Model 170E has a variable-speed motor, no-load speed of 1,600 to 3,500 rpm and weighs 12 pounds. Model 360E has a two-stage motor control (2,900 and 3,900 rpm) with overload protection and weighs 30 pounds. Models 280E and 360E can also be connected to a shop vacuum to collect plastic chips and reduce cleanup time.


“Depending on what the plumber is doing, in theory, he could be using more than one model of the saw to do different jobs,” says Mike Stone, CEO for Exact Pipe Tools.


Made for professional use, the Exact PipeCut saws feature a clamping mechanism that enables them to deliver precise, straight cuts, leaving pipe ready for welding or joining. A 4-inch-diameter pipe with 1/4-inch wall can be cut in less than 20 seconds. The saws also provide a safer alternative to traditional pipe cutting methods.
Each Exact PipeCut saw comes with a set of pipe supports that can be placed on the ground or other level surface. Pipe is set on the supports and the saw is rotated around the pipe while cutting.


“The basic concept is the plumber clamps the saw to the pipe and pushes the saw forward to cut the pipe. Then they rotate both the pipe and saw counter clockwise together and push the saw clockwise once again. The process is repeated four to five times until the pipe is cut into two sections,” Stone says.


Developed in Finland and introduced to the North American market in January 2014, the Exact PipeCut system includes saw, pipe supports, shoulder carrying bag, instruction manual, Allen keys, blade and DVD. 844/392-2800; www.exacttools.com.
