Webtool SL80 – Softline Cutter

Lightweight, open sided subsea softline cutting tool for up to 80mm diameter.


The SL80 is lightweight but heavy duty softline subsea cutter designed for underwater deployment in severe working conditions. The open sided design allows for easy positioning on the line by ROV or diver and simple operation.

Features and Benefits of the softline subsea cutting tool

Corrosion resistant and durable coated aluminium and stainless steel construction. Genuine Webtool™ blades and anvils give optimum cutting performance and ensure that maintenance is kept to a minimum. Open sided design and no moving anvil makes deployment simple and reduces the number of hydraulic hoses required. Compact design is ideal for operation in confined spaces or where access is limited. Mounting holes in the body allow for the fitting of standard handles (contact us for details) or bespoke mounting brackets. Serviceability and Support – Spare parts including blades, anvils and seals kits are available. Contact us for technical questions and support.
