The combination of a ratchet cutting action and a lopper blade makes the Faithfull Pipe Cutter tool highly effective. The blade works against an anvil jaw which holds the pipe securely while pressure is increased. The ratchet mechanism maintains applied pressure so that the handles only need to be opened and closed approximately three times to complete the cut. Suitable for cutting neoprene hose, polythene pipe or fabric-reinforced solid rubber up to 42mm outside diameter at right angles to the tube. Spare Blade available No. FAIPPC42BLA.
