Choosing the right cutting equipment hire for the job

Getting your hands on the right tools for the job is half the battle. Rather than struggling to work by hand and risking unsafe conditions, hiring the right cutting equipment can help you work more efficiently and safely.

The type of pipes being cut and whether you are cutting on site or in a workshop, will determine which equipment is right for your job.  A broad range of cutting tools is available from Enfield-based Mr Plant Hire and they can advise as to the best choice for you.

Power cutters

If you need to cut through pipe, our power cutters will make the job much easier.

Our Rems Power Pipe Cutters are ideal for site or prefabrication workshop. They can be used to cut pipe of up to 225mm in diameter, chip-free and with no inner or outer burrs.
