Customer Reviews

PC-1250 Pipe Cutter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid PVC cutter Ordered the cutter on-line and received it within a few days. I needed a smaller cutter for smaller piping in tight spaces. I got my money's worth. Worked great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PC-1250 Pipe cutter This was my first experience with these cutters. I used them on PVC tubing and they worked beautifully. Clean cut. Easy to use. I definitely recommend. They're great for the price too! At other companies around town, they can get up to $30-70+ .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cutting tool served its purpose, but... I used this tool to cut 1", 3/4", and 1/2" PEX tubing and 3/4" CPVC pipe. Cuts were square if the tool was rotated while cutting. The tool itself doesn't feel very durable, though, and Home Depot doesn't carry replacement blades. If you want a tool for the occasional cut, this one is sufficient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised This cutter gives a clean and straight cut on PEX. I had tried to use a PVC cutter but it did not cut as clean so not wanting pipe failures I bought this one.
