Wheeler Rex Pipe Crackers

Hydraulic Pipe Crackers for cast iron and concrete pipes. These cutters are not rotated around the pipe, the application is static, the chain is hydraulically tensioned around the pipe until the point of cracking. Minimal clearance is required to wrap the cutter chain around the pipe to engage it in the cutter jaws. A remotely operated hydraulic hand-pump provides the required power. Cutters are supplied complete with hand-pump, hose and storage/carrying box.
