Cut faster, cleaner, closer and longer than traditional shears, with more than 200 cuts on a single charge. The powerful Milwaukee 2470-20 M12TM Cordless Lithium-Ion PVC Shear can slice through 2 in. schedule 40 PVC in just three seconds. The ultra-sharp stainless steel blade with pierce point makes clean, burr-free cuts, and provides a quick return for fast repetitive cuts. PVC mounted to a stud or close to a wall or the ground is no challenge for the offset blade. A variable-speed trigger with reverse provides smooth, controlled cuts, even in temperature extremes. An onboard, real-time battery fuel gauge helps you monitor the charge precisely, so there’s less downtime on the job. The M12 Lithium-Ion Battery (sold separately) offers more power and longer runtime for maximum cuts per charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by No need to shower after cutting PVC If you haven't already endeavored into Milwaukee Tool M12 products and you cut a lot of PVC, make this your first purchase. You can debate whether or not the product line is worth the price, but that debate quickly ends if you use an individual tool with any reasonable frequency. I don't work with schedule 40 professionally, so when I have needed to make a cut in the past, I've either used a hacksaw, manual pipe cutter with a plastic pipe wheel, or a mitre saw. All methods have left me underwhelmed with the process and finished product. This M12 PVC shear revolutionized the process for me. It cuts without creating any debris. It cuts insanely fast and without effort. You can bring it with you and make cuts even in awkward positions on site as long as there is space for the tool. And it cuts all day without a charge (extended battery). Highly recommend. Full disclosure: Pay attention to the product dimensions; it is bigger and beefier than I pictured it before it arrived. It cannot make trimming cuts near the end of the pipe (allow for at least 1" of overhang on each side of the blade). Some of the cuts can be skewed if you're not careful, but that is mostly overcome by operator familiarity. And finally because the blade moves to the material, you need good line-of-sight on your intended cut location to ensure accurate placement of the tool. If you cut a reasonable volume of PVC, whether a single project or random cuts over the next decade, you should strongly consider this PVC shear. September 23, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by So handy its simply indispensable. This tool is something I will never be without again. Using ratcheting versions used to be a dreaded task since I have arthritis but with this cutter I have no issues at the end of the day. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tool ever! Im wondering why I didnt buy this tool a year ago. It would have made my life a lot easier. This tool is fantastic! The only thing I wish is that it could cut a little larger pipe. I work with 2 1/2" a lot and it does not accomodate this size. However I still love the product and think it is an excellent purchase.
