Replacing the knife on your Horizon APC-61II hydraulic cutter is essential for clean, accurate cuts, without straining and wearing down the machine. The power of the electric system will push even a dull blade through your stack, but when a dull blade is used the machine works much harder and will wear down quicker. An easy and fairly inexpensive way to keep your cutter performing at its peak for years to come is to frequently replace your blade.
At Binding101, we offer two styles of replacement blades for your Standard Horizon cutters; "Inlay Steel" or "High Speed Steel".
Inlay Steel blades are made of a bi-metallic composition that consists of one part high alloy tool steel and one part standard grade steel. A special fusion process bonds these two grades of steel together to produce a high quality blade at an reasonable price.
High Speed Steel blades are made of a bi-metallic composition consisting of one part 18% tungsten high speed steel and one part standard grade steel. A special fusion process bonds these two grades of steel together to produce an extremely wear-resistant knife. High Speed Steel blades last approximately three to five times longer than the standard Inlay Steel blades.
***Please note: Cutter manufacturers have been known to make changes to their cutters over time, while keeping the same model name and number. At times, the blade specifications can change. To make sure the blade listed is correct for your machine, compare the measurements listed on Binding101.com to the measurements of your current blade. If they are not exactly the same, please call us at (866)537-2244 and we will help determine what blade your machine requires.***
