The Columbia Sawed-Off Predator Automatic Taper is the ideal taper for production drywall in small, compact spaces or for the finisher who wants something lighter and more compact to carry. Columbia recommends using this tool in addition to the Standard Columbia Automatic Taper or Columbia Predator Automatic Taper for full range of accessibility on any jobsite.

Carbon Fiber Technology

The Columbia Automatic Taper is the world’s first Carbon Fiber Taper which means the aluminum barrel warms to touch and the cutting sleeve has the smoothest glide on the market. The Automatic Taper is a precision-built tool that has been perfected over 38 years but is now significantly lighter and more ergonomically superior. Experience less drag in corners, dent-proof mud barrel, stainless-steel creaser wheel and cutting assembly, and removable cap for easy cleaning.

NEW Pump Action Cutting Sleeve

The Patent Pending Pump Action cutting sleeve gives the operator a smoother glide over Teflon bearings, a superb grip and the pull ring is great for higher ceilings. The Predator maintains its stable temperature and remains warm to the touch. Every taper comes standard with an adjustable brake and quick release for tape changing. The Titanium pull rod is just another detail that adds style and edge to this innovative, unique taper. If you are serious about taping and care how a taper feels and performs this is the one for you.

Design Features:

  • Handmade from Carbon Fiber and Steel Components
  • Titanium Pull Rod
  • Adjustable Brake
  • Quick-Release for Tape Changing
  • Reduced Drag System for Corners
  • Stainless-Steel Side Plates, Creaser Arms, and Cable Drum
  • Quick Release Cap
  • NEW Very Smooth Patent Pending Pump Action Cutting System

Pro Tip: When purchasing an automatic taper, we recommend investing in a Columbia Taper Maintenance Kit to have on hand should a common wear part need replacing after cleaning. In doing this, you won't experience any unnecessary downtime while waiting for parts to arrive.
