This question already has an answer here:

I have a pdf file with 120 pages. How can I extract only pages 20-30 and save it as another pdf file? I'm using free version of Foxit Reader. It doesn't have this facility. Any solution?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Word 2013 has this capability. Of course it seems like you are asking for a product recomendation because your free tool doesn't do the job. – Ramhound Dec 6 '13 at 11:57

It can be done using google chrome

    1)Drag and drop pdf file to chrome
    2)Click print from the toolbar which appears when mouse pointer placed on 
    bottom right corner. 
    3)Select the pages you need to extract
    4)Click change button and select save as pdf instead of printer

Surprising and satisfyingly well working solution! The printing UI even shows a preview of the cropped pages, which makes finding the right page range easy. – ojdo Jun 3 '15 at 12:52
Ya really. google chrome is a great tool. – Harikrishnan Jun 3 '15 at 14:37

I've had pretty good luck with PDF Split and Merge for doing this. Annoyingly, the current version attempts to install another product as well, so you'd want to deselect it when installing, so you'll want to beware of that. That annoyance aside, it works pretty well.

I've split a 46 page document at page 10 and 15 here - in your case you want to set it at 19 and 50. You just need to add the pages you want to split at seperated by a space.

I was going to recommend PDFSam, too. It works very well. – Jack Dec 6 '13 at 15:39

Try using BullZip PDF Printer:
It's free, doesn't require additional software (be sure to un-check AVG), and is easy to use. After you install it, just print your PDF to the BullZip PDF printer (instead of an actual printer) and select the page range you'd like to extract; that's it!

doesn't install additional software ???? I would delete that and add a warning it will try to install "AVG Toolbar" and tries to make "AVG secure" your default search engine. You can deselect it during install... (i won't downvote this but you should change it to include a warning.) You can use this image to include the warning if so desired). – Rik Dec 6 '13 at 12:41
Alas, most software of this sort seems to :/. My preferred PDF printer these days is cutepdf, installed over ninite. Bundleware is a plague :/ – Journeyman Geek Dec 6 '13 at 13:17
