The Global Cutter has revolutionised half pipe shaping and is designed by a highly experienced and recognised snow cat operator and created by a team of engineers and riders all dedicated to creating exceptional half pipes. It is available in 13′, 15′, 18′ and 22′ models.
This is an extremely robust, powerful and effective system. It uses a paddle style cutter system but unlike older paddle cutters it won't stall ever. It's unique patented bi directional motors* enable it to recycle snow up to repair a wall or cut down if it has been snowing. It is extremely efficient in icy, hard conditions as well as slushy, spring conditions. It will save a further 9% per season as it uses less snow and will fix tracks and holes faster than the other major supplier of half pipe shapers.
The bi directional motors neutralise chain tension and the hydraulic flow in parallel doubling torque therefore not allowing it to stall. Both motors are mounted on the same horizontal axis and being bi directional allow for paddling snow up the walls or cutting down.
This creates accurate and efficient shaping as the operator is guided to achieve perfect vert, straight line cutting and is assisted during the entire build process. The laser guidance system alone will save a resort 15% per season in build time including snow cat operation and snow savings.
The rotary laser is set up on the wall and the receiver is mounted on the boom to guide the operator to cut a straight half pipe. In addition the laser system also calculates an accurate vert. angle reading for a precise take off.
The Global Cutter has the largest and smoothest transition on the market. It has a large elliptical shape that creates a smooth take off and a safer, wider landing. The lower transition extends and blends out into the floor creating more speed for riders and allowing them to go higher out of the pipe and execute more technical tricks. It's the shape riders want.
