New UltraCut ™ Cordless Power Tubing Cutter Adds Features
Cleveland, OH – Superior Tool, not content with the mountain of awards already won by the innovative UltraCut Cordless Power Tubing Cutter, has added features and further improved performance in the updated model introduced recently.
The UltraCut, which dramatically reduces the time, drudgery (and labor cost) of plumbing with copper tubing, cuts ½″ or ¾″ copper tubing in 3-5 seconds, consistently. Changing from the ½ inch calibration to ¾” is even easier now, thanks to a new conical quick-change spring and the new round Quick Change Button. The button has an arrow showing the direction to move in order to change from one size to the other. The button also makes gripping easier.
“There is no need for adjustments between cuts…at the end of the cut, the tool stops automatically in position for the next cut,” says Superior Tool CEO Jeff White. Because the tool makes many revolutions around the pipe in those few seconds, it operates at a much lower force, leaving virtually no burr on the outside of the tubing. And the new unit has Moly-impregnated rollers which reduce friction and allow the tool to run smooth even without lubrication.
White adds that “our new unit is also quieter because we have replaced the iron gear head bearings with smoother polymer (Acetal) bearings.”
“Our CQI (Continuous Quality Improvement) program, which applies to all our products, has enabled us to make the UltraCut the finest tube cutter on the market,” says White. “Additional improvements include a stronger, one-piece door and lock casting; and tightened tolerance between cutter wheel and the housing, which improves cutting blade tracking.”
Another big advantage, according to White, is that the UltraCut is small enough to fit into tight quarters for hard-to-reach plumbing jobs. “Our new unit is much easier to use in tight spaces than manual cutters,” he notes. “In fact, it cuts in a tighter spot than our best selling ‘mini’ manual tool.” The handle design allows most people to reach into the rafters to make a cut without getting on a ladder.
Headquartered in Cleveland, OH, Superior Tool Company has developed “a product that does for the job of cutting copper tubing what the power drill did for the bit and brace,” states White. “The UltraCut reinvents the category.”
The old-style tubing cutter has been the
standard for three generations. It required the user to adjust the cutting
wheel onto the tubing and to make a series of
