Rated 5 out of 5 by from great timesaver this cutter is great! used with the circular cutter it enables you to cut a perfectly shaped hole for a back box in under 10 minutes, a lot better than cutting out by hand!

Answer: 
Hi, you need an SDS+ machine to use the Tri-Cutter. They are usually rated by weight and for this you would need one that weighs at least 3Kg for optimum performance especially in hard materials.

Answer: 
Yes this cutter will cut into 7N block but you need to use the associated round cutter first (twice, side by side, spaced out with the template provided with the double square cutter) to remove the bulk of the material.

Even with that round cutting operation you should cut each box in, in 2-3 minutes. Due to the variations in aggregate used in blocks from different manufacturers it would be difficult to put an estimate on life. It can cut a box in as deep as you make the initial round holes. The following kit contains the round cutter, single square cutter, double square cutter, spacing template, 30mm channeling chisel and 80mm wide squaring off chisel for hard materials (the square cutters should not be used in hard materials).

Answer: 
The square cutters are capable of cutting most common bricks (provided the round cutter is used first to remove the bulk of the material).
Common bricks being ordinary red facing bricks, concrete commons etc. They are just not designed for the harder bricks (engineering bricks etc.) For these a chisel should be used to take out the corners after the round cutter has been used.
