What is it? The Kut-it tool is a double ended tool with several enhancements for the irrigation industry. The bottom end of the tool is a turf cutting tool that removes turf from around any sprinkler. The cutting end has a first in industry replaceable blade system, and can be used by hand, or with common tools such as a drill/driver gun or ratchet. The tool includes a durable reinforced aluminum frame insert to support higher tension. The tool also has a flat side to increase the grip with wet hands or in tough soil environments.
The top of the tool features a sprinkler cap removal system. Simply place the tool over the newly exposed sprinkler cap and turn counterclockwise. The patented sprinkler cap removal system will fit any spray head or any rotor head.
The Kut-it tool can be used as a stand-alone tool or it can be used in conjunction with the Kap-it for spray heads or Klift-it for rotor heads.
How does Kut-it improve efficiency?
Kut-it removes the grass blades and soil around the sprinkler, so you no longer have water stream impairment which is responsible for dry brown spots in the grass. Getting the water stream from the sprinkler above the grass increases distribution uniformity (even coverage of water, like natural rainfall) and increases the throw distance of the sprinkler which equates to more efficient use of water and lower run times. Additionally, the Kut-it tool can be used in conjunction with the Kap-it for spray heads or Klift-it for rotor heads to further increase water efficiency.
How do I use Kut-it?
Simply place the Kut-it tool over the existing sprinkler head and hand turn counter-clockwise until the tool hits the top of the head. Pull up and remove the turf cup divot. This operation can also be performed with a drill/driver gun or ratchet to make the turf removal effortless. If you wish to remove the cap to replace the internals of the sprinkler, simply flip the tool over and place the tool over the top of the sprinkler (any rotor or any spray) and turn counterclockwise and the tool will unthread the cap.
