Why Reed

The Reed UPC is lightweight; cuts fast; requires only 12” (300 mm) clearance around the pipe; provides a square cut virtually every time; and can be operated underwater. It is by far the safest, easiest and fastest power cutter to setup, operate and maintain, which nets a low operating cost.

Lightweight, easy-to-use Universal Pipe Cutters (UPC) are available to cut 6” - 48” nominal diameter (150-1300 mm actual O.D.) ductile iron, cast iron, clay, concrete, steel, PVC, or PE pipe. NOTE: When cutting steel pipe with the steel blades, sparks are possible and expected. Because of the sparks, the UPC cannot be used for cold cuts. Reed Universal Pipe Cutters are pneumatic powered. The lower cost UPC616A uses the same motor as the others, but does not need connecting frames. The UPC616 is shipped in a steel toolbox with a three-gallon, formed-steel water tank. The UPC636A and UPC648A UPCs come in a steel toolbox with a 6-gallon, stainless steel water tank and cart.


UPC836APE and UPC848APE are designed specifically for cutting PE pipe. The kit includes a 6" and 8" carbide tipped blade. The 8" blade will cut large diameter PE pipe with a wall thickness up to 2.65" (67mm). UPC836APE and UPC848APE also come in a steel box but without the water tank.
