A Cutter in GTA V
(Rear quarter view).
Vehicle class (GTA V) Industrial
Vehicle type Tunnel drilling vehicle
Body style Tunnel driller
Capacity 1 (driver)
Appearance(s) Grand Theft Auto V
Manufacturer HVY

The HVY Cutter is a tunnel boring machine that appears in Grand Theft Auto V.


The Cutter is a large vehicle that is designed as a mobile tunnel boring vehicle. The vehicle features a large panel at its front end with 5 large circular blades. The blades are non-functional, and serve only as decorations. Its main body is rather generic, featuring only a small driver cab on the left. It is featured in a preparation mission for the final heist in GTA V, as well as being used in the heist itself (only If you choose the "obvious" approach).


It's slow and somewhat hard to maneuver. Due to the front drillers, the vehicle has rear steerable axle, making it difficult to turn.

The Cutter cannot be obtained through conventional means outside the missions Driller or The Big Score. The only way to obtain the Cutter is through editing a save file, but the player will not be able to save it in a garage because its large front end does not let it fit inside the garage's doorway. The player can save the Cutter by parking it in the parking spaces outside the Vanilla Unicorn strip club.

Strangely, if the player finds a way to spawn a Cutter, he will be able to take it to a Los Santos Customs garage and modify it, albeit with a very limited selection of modifications. The plays must reverse the vehicle through the garage door, and once it enters at least half way, the Cutter will appear inside the garage.


  • Seen in a preparation mission for the final heist, where it is on the back of a trailer you must steal.
  • Only drivable in the final heist, it doesn't spawn outside this mission.

Mission Appearances


  • Cutter means something that cuts in slices, but the vehicle is actually a driller.
  • It's not possible to obtain the Cutter because it's a tunnel machine, so it could destroy the entire city. However, if you manage to spawn one by editing a save file, it won't affect the city, obviously because for an area to be destroyed, it must have a script for this to happen, or that like many other vehicles cannot destroy solid/non-destructible parts of map.
    • Even so, the Cutter's massive size makes storing it in the player's garage tedious, if not impossible.
  • Unlike other construction vehicles, the Cutter lacks a radio, first person view, or cinematic view, just like the Submersible, these two, along with the Tractor, are the only three motor vehicles that lacks a radio.
  • The design of the vehicle is somewhat strange, as real tunnel boring machines didn't use the Cutter's body. It's probably an original concept with the body of another machinery.
