The HC-16PL is a saltwater-resistant, nickel-plated cutter for use in underwater environments. Its recommended uses include: marine nautical cutting, emergency cutting of stainless steel wire rope rigging and hardware, underwater rebar and cable cutting, and yacht mast rod cutting up to 1/2″.

Requires minimum pumping effort to produce specified output tonnage. Portable, lightweight, and made to last years under the toughest field conditions.
