New RIDGID Press Snap Soil Pipe Cutter Provides Fast And Easy Cutting Of Cast Iron Soil Pipe

Elyria, OH - The RIDGID Press Snap soil pipe cutter expands the capabilities of RIDGID standard press tools by providing a fast and easy way to cut cast iron soil pipe.

The Press Snap cutter eliminates the need for manual ratcheting when it is connected to a RIDGID press tool. To make a cut, the Press Snap cutter is attached to the press tool, the Press Snap chain wraps around the pipe, and the user presses the trigger to make the cut. There is no need to score the pipe beforehand. The Press Snap cutter cuts most 1-½- to 4-inch no hub and service weight soil pipe. It works with all RIDGID standard press tools, including the CT-400, 320-E, RP 330-B and RP 330-C.

"The Press Snap soil pipe cutter provides additional functionality to RIDGID press tools," said David Roberts, plumbing and pressing technologies. "The new Press Snap cutter enables users to cut soil pipe in seconds with minimal effort."

RIDGID pressing technology consists of electro-hydraulic press tools with interchangeable jaws and rings that press and connect copper, stainless steel, and PEX tubing in seconds.
