The RIDGID 32573 2-in-1 Close Quarters AUTOFEED Cutter with Ratchet Handle is designed for easier cutting of hard and soft copper, aluminum and brass in tight, restricted spaces where the cutter cannot be rotated by hand. With its 2-in-1 design, the tubing cutter can be used alone or with the ratchet handle, a light and ergonomic accessory that offers greater flexibility and mobility when cutting. The rugged, compact handle attaches to the cutter and operates in ratchet steps as small as 10 degrees, allowing for fine indexing in tight spaces. The easy-to-turn football-shaped knob only needs tightening once and the spring-loaded cutter wheel automatically cuts, for ease of use in hard-to-reach areas. Close quarters tubing cutter has an adjustable 1/4-inch to 1-1/8-inch (6 mm to 28 mm) outside diameter capacity. This tubing cutter includes a spare E-3469 Cutter Wheel in the knob. Ratchet handle is also compatible with the model 101 tubing cutter and E-1740 soft flexible plastic cutter wheel. RIDGID covers its products with a lifetime warranty against defects in material or workmanship for the life of the tool. Since 1923, RIDGID has remained the symbol of certainty to dedicated professionals of the expert trades. Every tool that bears the RIDGID brand is engineered to the same high standards of quality, strength, and endurance, as was that first heavy-duty pipe wrench more than 80 years ago.
