On the Spot. Cut. Go.

Baretta Idraulica Riscaldamento is a company in Italy that has been working on the design, construction and installation of HVAC systems for more than 20 years now.

In the past years, they kept trying different types of tools to cut tubes accurately, with no marks or deformations, but none matched their needs.

“One day, we discovered the RIDGID PC 116 Powered Tubing Cutter. We first tested it on ¼” and 3/8” copper tubing for air conditioning installations, but also on bigger 1-½”, 2” and 3” carbon steel tubing for industrial boilers used in thermal power plants.

The first impression was clear: FAST, PRECISE & PRACTICAL TOOL. It really delivers to its purpose: accurate cutting, every time, with no marks or deformations. No time to lose, tubes are ready for pressing connection in seconds!” – Mario Baretta, Owner of Baretta Idraulica Riscaldamento SRL.
