Kerf Cutter

Repair Valve Boxes Quickly & Efficiently

Every year, municipalities and property management companies start the long, expensive project of repairing valve boxes. You bring in costly, heavy equipment to cut asphalt, dig down to the base of the broken valve box, replace the valve box, fill the hole, tamp the soil… then, finally, patch the pavement.

But, next year, the pavement settles, and you need to repair it again.

Projects that once took 10 hours… complete in 10 minutes

Kerf Cutter is the latest innovation for municipal water and street departments to fix broken valve boxes. With this tool, a single operator replaces a multi-person crew with a long-lasting solution that rises and settles with the pavement, so it won’t need to be repaired year after year.

This handheld, electrical tool has a circular blade on the end to insert into the valve box and cut off the top of the valve box. Once the broken section is removed, the operator inserts a new top and levels the new valve top with the pavement using only a hammer.

"It used to take us a couple weeks to fix all our broken gate valves. Now we can get them all fixed in a day."
