When working with the installation of tubing and hoses, it is necessary to have hose cutters to successfully complete the job. Whether your hose cutting comes prior to the hose being used or is needed to finish off an installation, you will want the right cutter for the job.
Hand hose cutters are the most common cutters and are the easiest to find. Hand cutters are perfect when you are cutting minimal tubing or completing installations in tight quarters. Table top cutters are the next in popularity and ease of finding. You will want a table top cutter when you are cutting a fair amount of tubing prior to it's installation. Automatic hose cutters are the hardest to find and by far the most expensive of cutters. When your business is selling precut tubes or hoses an automatic hose cutter is the only way to go. Consider the following as you evaluate your hose cutter needs:
1. Purchase automatic hose cutters for high output
2. Buy hand held hose cutters when your hose cutting is minimal
3. Find table top hose cutters for moderate hose cutting
Purchase an industrial rubber hose cutterWhen your business involves cutting a large number of hoses, you will want to go with an automated machine for the fastest possible output. Automated hose cutters work with a variety of tubing types and diameters.
Locate hand held hose cuttersHose cutters are necessary to properly complete any hose installation, especially when you are working in tight quarters. Hand held hose cutters are a handy tool to have when your business does a minimal amount of hose cutting.
Find table top hose cuttersTable top mounted hose cutters are handy to have when you do a moderate amount of hose cutting be it plastic tubing, or rubber hoses. Table top hose cutters are perfect for precutting hoses.
- When purchasing a manual hose cutter, look for a cutter with a square blade in order to give you a clean, straight cut.
