I purchased this PVC cutter for my dad as a gift. Unfortunately, either the one he received was faulty, or this just isn't strong enough to actually cut through normal PVC pipe. From what he told me, the cutter begins to close, and then just clicks, and doesn't ratchet closed all of the way. Fortunately he was able to return it to the local home depot with no hassle. It's too bad, this seems like a great idea...

I was working on a building project where I needed to cut a lot of 1-1/2 inch PVC. I had been using traditional methods of hack saw, skill saw, hand cutters and chop saw. The hack saw was hard to keep straight and get a pure edge, the hand cutters would not cut straight on 1-1/2 inch pipe and the electric saws worked but the shavings made a mess and were hard to clean up. I was a skeptic when I saw this tool but decided to purchase based on reading the reviews. What a great tool - easily cuts 1-1/2 Schedule 40 PVC straight with no shavings every time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eric All I can say is wow.
Where was this tool when I redid all the drains and vents in a 3bed/2bath house? I bought it to fabricate a pvc framed organic greenhouse as I did not want pvc cuttings all over...
Pros: Measure, mark, cut and install. Simple and fast. No mess. While it does deform smaller pipe during the cut, the deformation is not permanent and joints fit perfect - this project used 2", 1 1/4" and 3/4" sch40.
Cons: took some practice to get a reliability square cut on the smaller pipe. And the trigger safety is in an odd place given I have big hands but short fingers... found I had a hard time getting a good grip on it for the first 50 or so cuts. Also wish it was corded, as I won't use it often enough to cycle the battery enough to keep it fresh.

I was using a mitre saw as I make hundreds of cuts every couple of weeks. What a mess that was. Yay, no more hours cleaning my shop.

Wow, I am glad I took a chance on this cutter, it is a little pricey but worth the money. So far so good, I used it to but pcv pipes for a koi pond at home. Never look back on the hand saw to cut those pipes.

Hvac installer use on 90% furnaces. If your still using a hand ratchet cutter for 2 inch pvc once you use this youll have wished you bought it earlier!! Super time and energy saver. Would have given 5 stars but i agree should come with 2 batteries..
