VORTEX Soft Line Cutter

Supplied with relief valve set to 2200 psi, this 'long reach' soft line cutter gives the option of putting more distance between the ROV and the work. Tested on 43 mm Kevlar reinforced ROV tether, taking only 500 psi to sever the tether this is a unique alternative to heavy anvil type cutters enabling smaller ROV to operate this tool. 

Opening gap = 84 mm, weight = 9 kg. 
Dyneema cutter / soft line cutter: Dyneema is incredibly strong, and by design, notoriously difficult to cut.
