New Lightweight RIDGID® RC-2375 Ratcheting Plastic Pipe and Tubing Cutter Allows Fast and Accurate Cuts
ELYRIA, OHIO - September 2008 - RIDGID® is introducing its RC-2375 ratcheting plastic pipe and tubing cutter for fast, easy and accurate cutting of up to 2-3/8-inch O.D. capacity. Advanced blade design combined with a ratcheting mechanism reduce the amount of force needed to cut through plastic pipe and tubing.
Durable aluminum construction and ergonomic handles provide a comfortable grip for precise and easy cuts of plastic pipe and tubing such as PVC and CPVC, PEX, polyethylene, polybutylene and rubber hose.
Featuring X-CEL(TM) quick-change technology, the blade can be changed in seconds without any tools and lasts up to 2,000 cuts. The quick-change pin has no clips or screws that might be lost during a blade change.
The lightweight RC-2375 conveniently fits in one's pocket and is operated with one hand, making it easier for users to hold tubing. An easy turn thumb latch holds the cutter closed and protects the blade when the cutter is not in use. For convenience, ergonomic grips built into the bottom handle are spaced at 1/2-inch increments to provide a quick pipe measuring scale.
"The addition of the RC-2375 completes the RIDGID plastic cutter line," says Renee Brown, product manager, plumbing technologies, RIDGID. "The RC-2375 cutter addresses the need to quickly and easily cut larger plastic pipe diameters that have increased in popularity."
