Ratchet shears with hardened steel blades are ideal for cutting PE, PP, PEX and ABS pipe. Due to its long handles that add leverage, the RS2 is good for cutting up to 2" pipe. Pointed blade in RSP2 helps start the cut in tough plastics and helps avoid bounce in thin wall material. The two-hand RS2 features 2î capacity, extra wide, v-style jaws for easy alignment, and long handles for leverage on tough-to-cut pipe. Ratchet shears cut pipe used in gas, water, plumbing, and industrial applications. All ratchet shearsÍ blades can be easily sharpened or replaced, enhancing performance and saving money. These tools are not disposable and perform better, longer, and for less money over the toolÍs lifetime.
