Reed HPC12 Guillotine Pipe Cutter for PE 04612


Robust Guillotine Pipe Cutters are designed to cut PE pipe from SDR15.5 to SDR9 within 1/8” (3 mm) of square on medium and high-density pipe.

  • Cuts PE up to 12" (350 mm).
  • Squarest cut available, within 1⁄8" (3 mm) on medium and high density pipe, due to strong frames and unique blade design.
  • Saves facing cost: no facing needed for electrofusion, less needed for butt-fusion.
  • Requires minimal clearance, only 4" – 6" (102 - 152 mm) around pipe.
  • Clean and safe! No chips to clog valves and apertures.
  • Many high quality cuts, with durable non-stick coated (resharpenable and replaceable) tool steel blade.
  • Replacement Blades
  • Application: PE
  • SDR 17 - SDR9.3
  • Pipe Capacity: 4" - 12" 
  • Length: 51"


HPCs cut PE only and will not cut PVC or PP (polypropylene) pipe, such as Aquatherm®.

Temperature impacts pipe density. Cold temperatures (below freezing) can significantly shorten blade life.

Blade is very sharp. Take care when reaching in that area.

For operator and blade safety, always transport the cutter with the blade fully seated in the base of the cutter. Use the blade guard if available since it protects the blade and the operator.

Reed strongly recommends use of the PEGR7 Static Grounding Device (#04621) with Guillotine Cutters. Use a grounding device as a precaution against static build-up. Dissipate the charge and minimize the possibility of ignition.
