The RIDGID Model HC300 Hole Cutting Tool is designed to cut holes up to 3" (76 mm) diameter into steel pipe. The multiple hole size allows the use of fittings such as Mechanical T®, Vic-O-Let™, Weld-O-Let™ and others for branching unpressurized pipelines. The HC300 features a 1⁄2" (13 mm) capacity chuck to accommodate all sizes of holes up to 3" (76 mm) diameter and standard hole saw arbors up to 7⁄16" (11 mm). An integral motor and gear reduction optimizes the performance and saw life in the capacity range. A single-feed handle and ON/OFF switch allows for easy operation. The compact two-piece design allows the HC300 to be used in tight quarters and difficult-to-reach locations. The Model HC300 offers great features that translate into unparalleled field and shop performance.
