Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fast cutter After 2 months of use a piece broke off the tool :( , but I have to say Home Depot made it right, they ordered a new one for me . I've used Milwaukee tools for years and always had good luck with them, I'm hoping this issue was a one time issue :) June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesome Works great. Really cuts down my time having to cut the pipe by hand. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tubing cutter These cutter are great. Im a commercial plumber and these cutters make a day so much smoother. 200 cuts with tubing cutters makes a long day. These cutter make production so much faster. I do wish the trigger was a rocker button instead of flipping the lever over. Other than that the are a time saver. November 20, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for plumbers this tool has made my job much easier cutting copper .it was the best tool I bought in a long time. August 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quick and easy to operate. Milwaukee has done it again. Very good tool to have if your doing any type of copper. Takes a little while longer cutting type K copper cuts type L really easy. Just wished it came with two batteries instead of only one and it would cut up to 2" instead of only 1". September 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awsome Tool I own a pool company and bought this for copper tubing when installing gas line. it has worked every time no problems. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good tool but it's like a Gremlin don't get it wet. It works well for a few months, this is the fourth one I have bought. It's great for 4-6 months and then starts acting up. September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product. Only reason it does not get 5 stars is because it does not cut 3/8 in. copper. I've cut up to 7/8 though with no problem! Much easier than using manual copper cutters in a crawl space or tight fit. June 17, 2014
