Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for what is supposed to be used for. This is supposed to be used for tubing that is rubber/vinyl or PEX. Pipe cutter may be bad name for the product, but use some common sense. Why not try to cut copper PIPE with it, or Black iron PIPE. Just because it is a PIPE cutter doesn't mean all types of PIPE??? This is definitely not for Schedule 40 PVC PIPE???? Anyone using this tool for that purpose shouldn't be doing those types of projects. A ratcheting cutter (like Model 50500) or a pvc saw (like Model 50522) is used for sch40, not this tool. I have used this many times for 3/4" PEX, 1/2" PEX, rubber tubing and vinyl tubing and it works great! Remember, there are right and wrong uses for every tool ;D July 1, 2009
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Won't cut straight, blade dulls quickly This tool is a waste of your money. The blade dulls quickly after about 40 cuts, of ordinary Sched 40 3/4" white PVC in my case, and Home Depot doesn't sell the replacement blades! The Home Depot clerk agreed they don't sell the blades and it gets dull quickly. As hard as you might try, the pipe always is cut crooked due to the blade twisting as you start the cut. HD will however refund your money when the blade gets dull if you ask. September 9, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hacksaw worked just as well Purchased to cut a length of PVC that was at the top of the limits of the tool. It was miserable to use. I ended up using a hacksaw and it worked just as well. This tool was the most expensive thing for the job (tool, pipe, glue) and used the least. October 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice I use it for so many years . Usually I cut three quarter PVC pipe. very nice and practical . June 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not suitable for 1 1/4" PVC. I bought this to cut 1 1/4" PVC, but it was difficult and time consuming for that task. Works fine for 1/2." The packaging said it was suitable for 1/8" to 1 5/8" PVC. September 11, 2012
