New RIDGID® 238-P Powered Soil Pipe Cutter Quickly Cuts Pipe up to 8” in Hard-to-Reach Spaces

The new RIDGID® 238-P Powered Soil Pipe Cutter is the latest addition to the company’s soil pipe-cutting product lineup. Lightweight (13.5 lbs.) and compact (11.5” long), the tool was designed to make it easier for plumbers and mechanical contractors to quickly cut soil pipe in hard-to-reach spaces such as those in the rafters of a building or below grade. 


Designed for use with a ” impact driver, the 238-P incorporates a chain that can effortlessly cut no-hub cast iron, service weight cast iron and clay pipe up to 8” in diameter and concrete pipe up to 6” in dia-meter. And, thanks to its 11.5” length, removable handle and low-profile cutter wheels, it provides the versatility to work with inconveniently-placed pipe.

Additionally, the 238-P’s unique, two-directional operation lets users score pipe before cutting, helping make the cut cleaner. And, as a safety precaution, the tool’s torque limit (patent pending) protects it from overloading.

“The 238-P was designed for jobs where the pipes are hard to reach or awkwardly placed,” said Larry Feskanich, Product Manager at RIDGID. “It’s a high-capacity tool that can quickly and easily cut pipes up to 8” in diameter. Mechanical contractors and plumbers should find it ideal for working with tight-overhead and below-ground applications.”

The RIDGID 238-P Powered Soil Pipe Cutter is backed by the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty against material defects and workmanship.
