The SMC Crawlers and Bands from Sawyer set the industry standard for large diameter pipe cutting and beveling. Ideal for cutting in tight spaces, the unique right angle drive attachment for this pipe beveling machine allows you to cut with only 6 inches of clearance in the bell hole, and the flexible stainless steel beveling bands on this pipe cutter adapt to any situation and permit the crawler to smoothly and consistently cut and bevel pipe. In addition, the Sawyer beveling band and bug features the fastest motor in the industry, cutting at three times the speed of a typical acetylene cut with any other pipe cutting machine. These Band Type Pipe Beveling Machines are lightweight and adaptable to multiple pipe sizes and allow single-operator setup on pipes as large as 48 inches in diameter. Furthermore, all Sawyer pipe beveling machines have multiple accessories available to assist in getting any pipe cutter job done quickly and properly. The designs of these SMC Crawlers and Bands are often copied, but the quality of Sawyer’s pipe beveling equipment can’t be beat.
