Stainelec Hydraulic Equipment introduces the new DW-408B cordless hydraulic threaded rod cutters precision manufactured in Japan.
Designed to cut 8mm to 12mm diameter mild steel and stainless steel threaded rod material, the new Stainelec cutting tool provides the operator with a clean cut after every use on the work piece with no burr, allowing a nut to be screwed or fixed directly to the threaded rod after cutting.
The new range of cordless cutting tools allows the operator more flexibility for onsite applications to cut threaded rods either on the ground or above the ground for ladder and scaffolding situations.
Weighing only 4.8kg, the new DW-408B threaded rod cutter features an OH&S compliant design as there are no trailing power cords on the job site. Easy control is facilitated with two user-friendly handle grips when placing the cutter into the desired position for cutting the threaded rod material; however, if the positioning for the cut is incorrect, a manual relief valve has been provided to avoid any damage to the work piece.
The DW-408B’s motor body can rotate from left to right at 70 degrees, making the tool suitable for cutting threaded rods in awkward positions. DW-408B is capable of cutting M8, M10 and M12 stainless steel and mild steel threaded rod in metric threads; Whitworth sizes of 3/8 and ½ inch are also available, together with 3/8 and ½ inch UNC sizes for the US market. Stainelec supplies many customers in the US market to cut threaded rods in UNC thread sizes.
Key features of the cordless DW-408B threaded rod cutters include a Hitachi Li-Ion 18 volt 3-A/Hr battery, delivering approx. 500 cuts per full battery charge; battery chargers available in both 230 volt and 115 volt 60 Hertz for the US market; cutting dies for threaded rod sizes colour coded for operator’s convenience; and simple interchanging process for the cutting dies with the cutting blades held in place by easy release holding pins.
The electric DW-404 and cordless DW-408B series threaded rod cutters are extremely reliable, powerful and easy to use. The DW range cutters can cut M12 and ½ inch stainless steel threaded rods cleanly, without any burr to the end of the cut material.
