At first I could hardly believe I spent this much money on a tool to join copper pipe that I have sweated for years for less than a dollar per joint. Now it is the only tool I use for installations in occupied homes of water heaters, angle stops, shower valves, and baseboard radiators. Besides the obvious danger of an open flame not nescessary with press fittings it is also not nescessary to drain all water from the existing lines as you would have to in order to sweat a joint. Press fittings also look substantialy more professional and inspire more confidence than sharkbite fittings commonly used now in similar situations and by homeowners. This also creates a selling point for the professional.

Very happy with the product, Home Depot not only delivered the product as ordered, It also came a couple of days earlier than expected.
Overall we were very happy with the buying experience and with the product we ordered.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom the plumber Great tool for plumbing service work.
I recently purchased this tool. I haven't used it a whole lot yet. We already have a coupe Rigid press tools but I have several Milwaukee M12 tools and thought that this compact press tool would be handy to have. I know that I will always have a battery for it. It is truly a one handed tool. It's great for service where you want to get the job done quickly. I only wish there were PEX press jaws like the ones we have for the Rigid 200-B. This M12 press tool would be perfect for Viega PEX. The Milwaukee M18 press tool looks very appealing as well. I might have to invest in that one as well. I would like to see the prices come down a bit though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James the Service Tech. Good compact press tool.
The M12 Force Logic Press Tool also accepts Ridgid Compact Press Jaws and cycles fine when using them. This opens the use of the tool to more options as Tom the plumber stated. Also the M18 will take the Ridgid Standard Press Jaws.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by massplumber Ended up returning it
The inline design feature is nice the motor seemed to struggle doing 3/4 copper. I don't know if the one I got was defective but I would have to run it several times without the jaws for it to start working right.... I thought maybe it was to cold out but they claim an operating temperature of 10 degrees. For the money I paid I wasn't getting stuck with another tool made by Milwaukee that doesn't do what they claim it will. I was also told by the rep to do bronze fittings you need the bigger m12 batteries i was very disappointed
