Cutting within laterals has always been a challenge. Micro Pro combines exceptional visibility and precise control, and delivers it in a package that’s extremely portable. This will raise the bar for all lateral cutters.

Using remote-inflated air bladders, the arm of the new Micro Pro™ lateral cutter positions itself remotely by creeping and climbing; clamps itself for precise cutting in vertical or horizontal orientation; and feeds the cutting head a full 4 inches. Just 72mm in diameter, the arm fits through small openings, and its agile, joystick-controlled articulation (400-degree rotation and 90-degree swivel) facilitates precision cutting, as well as maneuvering through 90-degree bends in 4" lines.
"Cutting within laterals has always been a challenge," says Jon Manners, Account Manager at Pipeline Renewal Technologies. "Micro Pro combines exceptional visibility and precise control, and delivers it in a package that’s extremely portable. This will raise the bar for all lateral cutters."
The Micro Pro™ lateral cutter employs a powerful air motor to make cuts as far as 100' inside pipes 3–6" (or up to 10" as an option). An illuminated camera with digital monitor/recorder and combined water/air cleaning presents real-time cutting footage, and a pressure alarm warns against water ingress. Designed for productivity, the entire system travels on a compact wheeled chassis, accepts various interchangeable cutting heads, and can be field-maintained with operator-replaceable parts.
