Customer Questions & Answers

Will this cut 1"furniture quality PVC?

Will this cut 1" furniture quality PVC pipe? If not which item do you recommend for the job?
Asked by: Bert
I only used on plumbing grade pvc, but I would think it would not be a problem. May take several more revolutions around pipe to cut, so saw maybe faster unless looking for a clean edge which this does a good job providing.

This cutter is amazing anyone who does more than three drains a year should get one. Small and easy to use you don't even have to climb out from under the sink to use it. I'd give it 6 stars if I could. A must have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Y'all need to learn how to read!!! For everyone thinking it can cut sch 40 dwv/pvc pipe, it clearly says it's for thin walled pipe/tailpiece extensions. It does the job just fine for what it's made to do which is for the drain pipe under the sink or whatever you like to use slip nut extensions on. Ridgid does however make a tool to cut sch 40 pipe however. This tool saves time and makes cleaner cuts and does the job it's suppose to do in my eyes.

Does not work well cutting a small amount off the end of pvc pipe. Cutting with an inch or more off was not a problem at all. Overall easy to use and worked with most of my cutting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!!! 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea but falls short on performance Like another Poster stated, it works great on the thinner PVC tubing that Home Depot and Lowes sell, but it does not cut all the way through on the heavier gauge pvc drain tubing sold by commercial wholesalers. This makes it a great homeowner tool, but leaves the Professionals out in the cold. Works for 15 ga. and smaller, does not work well for 13 ga. and thicker. It is very disappointing to see how Ridgid has declined in product design over recent years.
