For larger rebar cutting jobs, BN Products-USA™ offers a range of portable rebar cutters that can handle rebar up to #10 and are designed to be used on-site. These cutters are portable and easy to move around, making them perfect for construction projects where rebar needs to be cut in multiple locations.
Some of the portable rebar cutters available from BN Products-USA™ include:
- DC-16W: This heavy-duty rebar cutter can safely, efficiently, and cleanly cut rebar up to #5 (5/8″), grade 60. It is a self-contained electric/hydraulic unit that is designed for effortless vertical and horizontal cutting applications. It can also cut other items like chain, bolts, and rod, but is specifically designed for rebar.
- DC-16LZ: Like the DC-16W, this is a cold-cutting shear, unlike saws with abrasive blades and cutting torches, there are no sparks or flame. A safety relief valve for retracting the piston and a cutting guard are standard features. While the DC16W and 16LZ are similar tools, the LZ version is 3 pounds lighter, and ideal for contractor cutting #5 bar or smaller.

- DC25X: This model is also a heavy-duty rebar cutter that can cut rebar up to #8 (1″) diameter grade 60. It is ideal for small fabrication shops. Because our rebar cutters feature a locking trigger switch, the cutter can be operated with a foot pedal switch. There are no sparks or flame, so it also works great on epoxy-coated rebar. It’s the fastest, safest, and most economical way to cut 1″ rebar on the job.
- DC-32WH: This is our largest portable heavy-duty rebar cutter, which can easily cut #10 (1 ¼”) diameter grade 60 rebar. It is ideal for bridge and highway work or in small rebar fabrication shops.
