Fully-hydraulic 18.5 paper cutter - MADE IN THE U.S.!

The CHAMP 185Pro series delivers hydraulic powered strength and durability with easy to use controls to the 18” cutter market that is crowded with weaker electric motor powered machines. The CHAMP's strong ¼” thick cold rolled steel weldment frame offers a superior design, allowing operators to cut today's hard stocks accurately in piles of up to 3.25” high.

Proudly manufactured at our factory in Michigan, the USA made CHAMP 185Pro cutter has wheels with lockable casters, allowing the machine to easily be moved - even through standard 36” wide doorways.

The new Pro system provides intuitive controls designed for both new users and cutting professionals. The 7.5" full-color display with quick-response capacitive touch enables fluid controls and more powerful features.

The Pro systems includes fast backgauge positioning, continuous cut history (cut-and-record), advanced job creation, USB & built-in memory, step-and-repeat, instant unit conversion (in-mm), and many more features. Get the most out of your machine with the CHAMP 185Pro.
