(Elyria, Ohio) Severing a full bundle of steel studs is no challenge for the RIDGID® 14" Abrasive Cut-Off Machine (Model CM1450), which cuts through rebar, pipe, angle iron and other tough materials with ease. Professionals will find not only power and endurance in this unit, but also the features that increase productivity on the jobsite.

Equipped with a 15 Amp motor to power through 5" pipe or 2" bar stock, the machine's other heavy-duty components include hardened cut steel gears, a durable cast aluminum motor housing, and a wide, cast iron base with non-slip rubber feet for stability.

"Professionals who spend their time cutting materials such as steel studs, pipe, drywall track, conduit and rebar, can count on RIDGID's cut-off machine to provide the muscle. This rugged tool has all the brawn and cutting performance they're looking for," said Jeff Drake, RIDGID spokesperson.

Based on contractor input, RIDGID designed the cut-off machine with a D-shaped handle, which most users report provides them with greater control and comfort than other styles.

For precise miter cuts, the machine's fence pivots up to 45° both left and right, and a tool-less mechanism enables fast miter adjustments. The machine also has a quick-release vise for securing and adjusting stock, as well as built-in arbor lock, which makes changing the abrasive cutting wheels easy.

Other handy features of RIDGID's abrasive cut-off machine include a hold-down chain to secure the motor head during transport, a carrying handle for transporting the unit, and on-board wrench storage.
