The 8600 conduit cutter’s patented cutting wheel and shoulder combination not only eliminate burrs on the inside of conduit after it’s cut but also prevents the tool from cutting through the conduit wall. Designed for 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch EMT, the 8600 works like other conduit cutters by alternately tightening the cutter wheel and turning the cutter around the conduit. When the cut is deep enough to reach the shoulder on the cutter wheel, though, it can be removed and the conduit can be snapped in two. It’s also designed for cutting conduit that already has wire installed because it won’t penetrate the conduit wall and damage wire insulation.
