Soil and drain tube cutter tube holder

 
 Parts of a soil and drain cutter; tube holder 

The soil and drain tube cutter has a large tube holder in which the tube is inserted to hold it in place. As soil and drain tubes tend to be quite large in diameter, the tube holder needs to reflect this. 

 
     
   

Cutting blade on a soil and drain tube cutter

The soil and drain tube cutter has a blade attached to a handle. The handle turns the blade around the tube, cutting it in a circular motion.

The handle of the soil and drain tube cutter has a round ball end so it is easy to grip. This ball is also twisted, separately from the handle, to tighten the blade after every rotation to keep the cut going. 

 
     
   

Soil and drain tube cutter foot stand

 
 Parts of a drain and soil tube cutter; foot stand 

The foot stand is used to hold the tool up. It has a base piece which the user stands on to keep the tool steady whilst cutting. If the cutter is being used downwards, for example in trenches, the stand can be used as more of a handle to steady the tool.

 
     
   

Extra leg on a soil and drain tube cutter

 
 Parts of a drain and soil cutter; extra leg 

The soil and drain cutter comes with a second leg, which can be attached or removed at the user's discretion. If cutting new tubing to size, the extra leg should be used as it allows the tool to stand on its own, so that the user's hands are free to hold the tube and turn the cutter's handle.
