The RIDGID Model 238-P Powered Soil Pipe Cutter cuts cast iron soil pipe quickly and easily in tight spaces. The cutter is designed to cut up to 8-inch soil pipe when driven by a 1/2-inch impact driver or a manual ratchet. The lightweight and compact unit's two-directional operation lets users score pipe before cutting, helping make the cut cleaner. As a safety precaution, the cutter's torque limit protects it from overloading. A removable handle and low-profile cutter wheels offer flexibility.
