This track tool with height adjustable blades allows one pass cutting on thicker vinyl and rubber flooring. Being on a track, the use of a straight edge and knife are no longer needed. By pushing the tool on the rail to cut, the strain on the wrist and forearm by pulling the blade through materials, sometimes with several cuts, is eliminated. Also with the blades being height adjustable, the life of your blades' cutting tips are extended. This tool saves time and increases productivity and safety.
