Trav-L-Cutter is a portable milling machine designed to cut and bevel simultaneously on most pipe materials and schedules. Secured by its tensioning chain, the Trav-L-Cutter drives itself around the pipe as it machines, producing a weld ready surface.

100 cfm @ 90 psi (.05 m3 /s @ 6.21 bar)
13–15 gpm @ 1500 psi (49.2–56.78 lpm @ 103.42 bar) not to exceed 2000 psi (137.9 bar)
3" (76.2mm) surface feed/min maximum, or appr. 1 min/in (1 min/25.4mm) of pipe diameter. 10" (254mm) pipe = 10 min. Over 1 /2" (12.7mm) wall as well as most alloys require reduced feed rate.
10"-12" (254–309mm) radial, 20" (508mm) axial
Controls (Model E & HE)
Cutter on-off, feed on-off, with interlock to prevent machine feed unless cutter is turning, adjustable feed control. (Model HE Only) Flow control valves. Separate controls provide adjustable spindle speed and cutter speed. Forward/Reverse valve governs machine travel direction.
