Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zach Industry Standard For a Reason
Been using these along with the 18” version for 5 years installing fire sprinkler pipe. My first set was handed down to me, but I recently decided to buy a new set (18” & 24”) and hand the previous set down to a co-worker. They do the job, and can take a beating. If you’re pulling on fittings with a threading machine, or using a “cheater bar" obviously you’re going to want the heavy duty steel versions but if you’re up on ladders and lifts all day, aluminum is the only option.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobluciano Bad experience with warranty
I had used the 31100 818 Aluminum Straight Pipe Wrench 18 450 2 1/2 65 3 3/4 1.7 wrench for years without issue. I had an extremely tight fitting and more than a bit frustration when I cracked the aluminum just below the adjustment nut. I contacted my dealer they said there weren't sure if it would be covered as they had never seen one break that didn;'t have cheater bar marks on it. I got a refection no idea why as it was hands only and had always been, I guess it was fatigue over time. I don't have an image as I never got it back

I have only broken one pipe wrench in my career as a steamfitter/pipefitter and now as a maintainance fitter/technician. I still have the same pipe wrenches that I purchased almost 20 years ago in my tool box, they still work just as well as they did when I first purchased them so many years back.
Ridgid pipe wrenches are second to none and the best that any one in the piping industry and/or maintainance feild could have in their bag of tricks!!

We just purchased two new 36" aluminum wrenches as our preavious Two have grown legs. However the bottom jaws on both seem dull and not as sharp as our years old steel 36 in her. I hope rigid did not out source one of the most important parts of this tool... Time will tell.

Looks like all the previous reviews have said it already: these wrenches are the best! I own everyone of the aluminum wrenches and I enjoy using them. They are time tested and made to last forever.
I also own all the Ridgid iron wrenches, they are nice too, but the dramatic differences in weight makes using these aluminum tools a no-brainer.
These wrenches make for a lighter tool box too.

Best pipe wrenches hands down. I use these pipe wrenches on a daily basis and work them hard and they just keep coming back for more.
I used my Ridgid 4 foot aluminum pipe wrench with a 6 foot cheater bar on the end of it with a come along to remove a 6" relief valve from a steam boiler and the wrench took it all. Not even a little bend.
Ridgid pipe wrenches are the only wrenches I will ever use. Awesome, dependable, reliable wrenches.
