The RIDGID Model HC450 is engineered for continuous 1⁄4" (6 mm) to 4 3⁄4" (120 mm) hole cutting in and up to 8" (203 mm) diameter steel unpressurized pipe. The built-in level ensures line up for multiple holes when branching lines using Mechanical T, Vic-O-Let fittings or welded saddles. Dual-side feed handles and switches provide easier operation from any angle. In addition, the HC450’s heavy-duty chuck accommodates 1⁄8" (3 mm) to 5⁄8" (6 mm) arbors. The HC450 is ideal for mechanical, industrial maintenance and fire protection contractors since it cuts holes into a wide variety of pipe materials. No off-the-shelf drill-based hole cutter compares in performance or durability to the rugged purposed-built Model 450.
