Are Power Hydraulic Rebar Cutters a Must-Have?

Rebar is a common sight in construction projects. It is used to strengthen concrete; therefore, it is necessary to cut it accurately and quickly. There are many ways to cut rebar, but the most efficient way is using power hydraulic rebar cutters. Let’s look at how these high-end machines might be worth the investment.

Specialty Hydraulic Cutters and Their Benefits

There are a variety of ways that workers have traditionally cut and bent rebar, including grinders, circular saws, and reciprocating saws. Each of these tools has their advantages in certain situations – but nothing compares to a good hydraulic cutter/bender when production is a concern. 

Automatic hydraulic rebar cutters are tools that make quick work of cutting tasks that would otherwise be difficult or time-consuming. They can save you a lot of time and effort, and they're especially useful for tasks that require precise cuts. An example of a premium hydraulic rebar cutter is the Benner-Nawman DC20WH.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of using specialty hydraulic cutters:

  • Quick and Easy to Use
    Hydraulic rebar cutters are very quick and easy to use. You simply need to position the cutter over the material you wish to cut and then press the trigger. The cutter will do the rest, making clean, precise cuts in just seconds. This is a huge time-saver, especially if you need to make multiple cuts or work with materials that are difficult to cut by hand.

  • Highly Versatile
    Hydraulic rebar cutters are very versatile tools. They can be used on various materials, including concrete, asphalt, metal, and even wood. This means you can use them for a wide range of applications across the construction industry.

  • Safe and Easy to Operate
    Hydraulic rebar cutters are safe and easy to operate. There's no risk of injury when using them, and they're also very easy to control. This makes them a great choice for professionals working with rebar every day.

Specialty Hydraulic Rebar Cutters: A Worthy Investment

Are specialty hydraulic rebar cutters worth the investment? This is a question that many contractors and construction managers face when looking at their available options for cutting steel rebar.

There are several different types of rebar cutters on the market, from simple handheld devices to large stationary machines. And while there are many factors to consider when choosing the right tool for the job, in general, specialty hydraulic rebar cutters offer some clear advantages over their less expensive counterparts.

  • For one, specialty hydraulic rebar cutters are designed specifically for cutting rebar. This means that they can handle the tough material with ease, and they will produce clean, precise cuts every time. In contrast, handheld rebar cutters can be more difficult to use and may not produce as clean a cut.

  • Another advantage of specialty hydraulic rebar cutters is that they are much faster than their handheld counterparts. This is because they are designed to quickly and efficiently cut through rebar. In contrast, handheld rebar cutters can take more time and effort to make a single cut, which can be frustrating for contractors working on tight deadlines with large quantities.

  • Specialty hydraulic rebar cutters are often much more durable than their handheld counterparts. This is because they are made with high-quality materials that can withstand the wear and tear of repeated use. In contrast, handheld rebar cutters may break or wear down sooner, which can be costly to replace.

  • Overall, these units are a good value. There are no expensive accessories to invest in, and the cutting blocks are literally good for thousands of cuts.

  • Hydraulic cutters are safer than other cutting methods that use sharp blades or dangerous spinning abrasives.

Most of these larger units are corded, with a large footprint and require on-site power, so not ideal for working in tight spots, or on installed rebar. There are several portable cutter/benders on the market now (like Metabo’s HTP VB16YM or the DC25X from Benner-Nawman) that are handheld, powerful, and much easier to use in tight spaces. These units can cut through a piece of 60 grade #8 rebar in about 5 seconds.

The Verdict:

Specialty hydraulic rebar cutters are more than a worthy investment. They are a “must-have” item for many contractors and construction managers looking for a tool with a higher output that can easily handle tough material, produce clean, precise cuts, and withstand the wear and tear of repeated use.

If you're in the market for a hydraulic rebar cutter, it's essential to weigh all of your options and decide what will work best for your needs. While there are certainly cheaper options available, if you want a tool that is quick and easy to use, highly versatile, and safe and easy to operate, then a specialty hydraulic cutter is the way to go.
