The industry’s first cordless lithium-ion copper tubing cutter cuts up to 10X faster than conventional cutters. Engineered with plumbers, mechanical contractors and remodelers in mind, this versatile copper tubing cutter runs at 500 RPM for unmatched cutting speed. The M12TM Lithium-Ion Battery and ultra-efficient gearing allow you to make up to 200 cuts on a single charge. The patent-pending cutting mechanism automatically adjusts diameter to cut Type K, L and M copper pipes from 3/8 in. to 1 in. (OD from 1/2 in. to 1-1/8 in.). The unique rotating cutting head cuts installed copper piping with as little as 1-1/2 in. clearance, and the lightweight, inline design provides a longer reach and reduces wrist strain when you’re working in confined spaces. A built-in LED light illuminates the cutting surface. The metal cutting head is corrosion and rust resistant, and sealed for water protection, while electronic overload protection and unibody construction provide additional durability. An onboard, real-time battery fuel gauge helps you monitor the charge precisely, so there’s less downtime on the job. The kit includes one 12-volt lithium-ion battery, a 30-minute charger and carrying case. A double-battery kit (model 2471-22) is also available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast cutter After 2 months of use a piece broke off the tool :( , but I have to say Home Depot made it right, they ordered a new one for me . I've used Milwaukee tools for years and always had good luck with them, I'm hoping this issue was a one time issue :) June 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good product. Only reason it does not get 5 stars is because it does not cut 3/8 in. copper. I've cut up to 7/8 though with no problem! Much easier than using manual copper cutters in a crawl space or tight fit. June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by tubing cutter These cutter are great. Im a commercial plumber and these cutters make a day so much smoother. 200 cuts with tubing cutters makes a long day. These cutter make production so much faster. I do wish the trigger was a rocker button instead of flipping the lever over. Other than that the are a time saver. November 20, 2010
