Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spock Not for 1-1/2" Schedule 40 PVC
This product is advertised as being able to cut PVC up to 1.5". I needed the tool today, so I went to my local home depot to pick one up. Of the 6 they had in stock, 5 had clearly been returned. Intrigued, I decided to try an open one before purchasing and immediately understood why so many had been returned. This DOES NOT work on the standard 1.5" inside diameter PVC that most people use for plumbing drains (ie the PVC Home Depot sells). In order to use the tool, you insert your pipe into a hole on the tool (the hole has a small blade) and then rotate the tool around the pipe until it cuts. Unfortunately, that hole is only slightly wider than 1.5". This is fine for thin-walled 1.5" plastic tailpieces, but completely useless for standard 1.5" schedule 40 PVC, which has thicker walls and as a result cannot fit in the hole at all. The description needs to clarify this, as I'm sure all of the people who returned the product to the store did so because they thought it would cut schedule 40 1.5"' PVC.

Cuts plastic pipe with no burrs and straight also. Helpful when you are in close areas.

I have the older model of this with the completely closed end and I love it. It cuts super easy and always gives you nice square cuts! I have used it to do all the plumbing in my kitchen and 2 bathrooms when we did a remodel and I installed all new drain pipes and I have also used I countless times at my moms rental units! I would not go back to a hacksaw after using this tool! This little gem has found a permanent home in my plumbing tools and supplies toolbox!

This is a great product for anyone who cuts a lot of PVC or Electrical gray conduit.
It cuts straight and smooth for that perfect looking job.
