Sanitary

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

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Cutter is a large vehicle that is designed as a mobile tunnel boring vehicle, featuring a large panel at its front end with five large circular blades, each one having three differently-sized saws.

Its main body is rather generic, featuring only a small driver cab on the left and a flat body on the rest of the vehicle. The front end has various articulated bars that attaches the large drilling device and wires, front dual wheels with small fenders, rear single wheels and an exhaust on the rear right corner of the vehicle, where its engine is located. In addition, two small circular headlamps are seen mounted on the driver's cab and a frame on the right side.

The blades are non-functional, and serve only as decorations.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Cutter slow and somewhat hard to maneuver. It is able to perform sharp turns thanks to its rear-wheel steering. However, due to its large size, it may be difficult to drive in small, enclosed areas. Also, it can be a problem to control the vehicle at some points, as it may easily lose control when turning. It is obvious to say that the Cutter is a heavy vehicle and therefore is able to easily wreck vehicles with the boring panel and to push objects as well; at medium to high speeds, the Cutter can easily deal high damage to other vehicles such as popping their tires, dealing large vehicle deformation, and destabilizing them while driving.

The vehicle is powered by a large engine whose sound is similar to that of most industrial trucks (although with a lower pitch, since it cannot reach high speeds), coupled to a single gear in a rear engine, all wheel drive configuration. As for its weight, the Cutter appears to be much heavier than a Dozer, but lighter than a Dump.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Driller - One of the protagonists have to steal a Packer with an attached trailer where the Cutter is loaded.
  • The Big Score (Obvious Approach) - Once Michael and the first gunman are ready, he tells the order to Franklin, who drives the Cutter and starts the drilling device to make a tunnel right to the Union Depository's vault. It is the only time the player makes use of the vehicle.

Locations

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.

Trivia

  • The Cutter cannot destroy solid/non-destructible parts of map, so if the player manage to obtain one, it won't drill anything or won't even slice a car, this is because the wall from the Union Depository was scripted to be destroyed.
  • Strangely, if the player finds a way to spawn a Cutter, they will be able to take it to a Los Santos Customs garage and modify it, albeit with a very limited selection of modifications. The player must reverse the vehicle through the garage door, and once it enters at least half way, the Cutter will appear inside the garage. However, doing so will prevent the player from exiting the garage, as the front panel blocks the vehicle from exiting.
  • 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. It still lacks a first person view in the enhanced version of GTA V, that makes the Cutter one of the few vehicles in the enhanced version that lack a true first person view.
  • The Cutter appears to be heavily inspired by a similar vehicle featured in the 1995 film Die Hard With a Vengeance. Both are the same type of vehicle and are original concepts as well. This is reinforced by the fact that the Obvious Approach is a reference to the aforementioned movie.
  • While the Cutter is referred as a tunnel boring machine, real tunnel boring machines can be seen in the game, see here.
  • Oddly, the motor device connecting the main cutters to the shaft is made up of many textures from multiple parts, including lights, camshaft covers, carburettors, engine block detail, warning signs and spark plug textures, as seen here.
