The RIDGID® Model 258 Power Pipe Cutter cuts 2 1⁄2" (65 mm) to 8" (200 mm) schedule 10*/40 steel pipe, galvanized pipe, rigid conduit, etc. at the job site or in the shop. Powered by the RIDGID No. 700 Power Drive, the 258 is a displacement cutter that provides square cuts. The operator controls the feeding rate by pumping the hydraulic foot pump throughout the operation. A square cut with minimal burr on either 21 ft (6m) or nipple lengths of pipe is achieved quickly** without abrasive dust, sparks, or open flame. Also, the RIDGID Pipe Roller for beveling can be used to rotate the pipe while second operator uses a grinder to bevel the pipe.

WHAT SETTING SHOULD WE USE ON THE TOOL WHEN CUTTING 5" SCH 40 PIPE, 2-4 OR 6-8???
The pivot arm should be set at the 2” to 4” setting. When inserting the pipe underneath the cutter wheel, lift up on the front end of the pivot arm to create enough room for the 5” pipe. If you have any further questions please contact our Technical Support Department at 888-743-4333. Thank you RIDGID
