Well, like mentioned on the title, I need lasers that can easily cut through trash cans. Not the small ones at home, but the one on the streets.

Basically we need to cut holes on the lit, and it needs to be more durable unlike most pointers can only run for less than a minute.

So, what kinds of lasers do I need to do this job? What's the minimum power? What color would you recommend? How much do you think that would cost me?

Thank you.

yeah, a CO2 would be ideal with a weak visible laser to aim it.

Hehe, don't count on it. It won't be portable...
A CO[sub]2[/sub] laser will cost you a lot...

Well, I figure it wouldn't be a portable, I'm just wondering what would be ideal to do the job.

Thanks for your helps, but can anyone be more specific as to how much this would be etc.

Search eBay for CO[sub]2[/sub] laser. Or you can search google, you will probably want a 60 Watt...
