Cordless Belt Cutters
Flexco recently released its Cordless Belt Cutter. Designed to provide quick and easy cuts on rubber, PVC and fabric-plied belts, this portable tool is available in two sizes. The CEBC1 is capable of cutting rubber belts up to 1-in. (25 mm) thick and PVC belts up to 360 P.I.W. (63 kN/m) while the CEBC2 is capable of cutting rubber belts up to 2-in. thick (50 mm) and PVC belts up to 1140 P.I.W. (200 kN/m). These cordless versions join the Electric Belt Cutter line of mainte-nance tools. The hand-held cutters are specifically designed to allow the user to cut belts easier and faster than tradition-al cutters, in addition to allowing for lon-gitudinal cuts and angled cuts. The high speed, steel blade on the cutters pro-duces smooth, accurate cuts and is pro-tected by a spring-loaded blade guard for enhanced worker safety.
