Holmatro has just completed its new cutter range, now consisting of four main models. Each model is available with CORE Technology, Holmatro’s tool-hose-pump-system, or with Greenline EVO battery technology. What’s new is that you can also choose the type of cutter jaw: traditional (straight) or inclined. With its unique 30-degree angled jaw, the Holmatro Inclined Cutter improves user comfort and maximizes working space.
Inclined Cutting offers two important user advantages:
1. Improved Ergonomics
The body of a car often needs to be cut high up. This means you need to lift your cutter to shoulder level or above. Physically, this is extremely demanding. Conversely, the same principle applies: cutting low on the car forces you to bend down, which puts undue strain on your back. The Holmatro Inclined Cutter solves this problem: the angled jaw allows you to cut well above or below waist level in a much more comfortable position.
2. Maximized Working Space
The Holmatro Inclined Cutter also offers 30 degrees more working space between the tool and the car when cutting pillars from the side. This enhances patient safety and eliminates the need for repeated cutter repositioning. The same principle applies if you need to make a perpendicular cut in the rocker channel: there’s more space between an Inclined Cutter and the ground, which avoids unwanted leverage and vehicle displacement.
The new cutter range consists of compact lightweight cutter CU 5030 CL (9.5 kg / 20.9 lb), heavy-duty cutter CU 5060 which has the NFPA ‘all 9’ classification and two models in between: CU 5040 and CU 5050. All models can be powered by battery or CORE technology and are available with traditional straight blades, or the new inclined cutter jaw. This results in a wide choice of 16 different versions.
