Yes, you likely won't need them for a long time. I think they are about $30

when are they going to be in stock?

I would assume soon they are not on the internet site yet. You might want to talk to a local store pro desk associate.

Milwaukee just rocked this tool. I was skeptical as all can be when I received it. I took down the summer pool and my home-made raft shelves made out of PVC. They needed to be cut down and sent to the recycle bin. I figured why not to try this out. It is extremely well made and does the job quickly and thoroughly without issues. I love this tool and look forward to using it more. The lines are perfect cutting into it if you wondering to cut or glue pieced together.

I'm really impressed with this pipe cutter. I've had other, cheaper cutters before that were plastic but this one is so much more solid and sturdy. It feels to be cast aluminum with a solid powder coating in red. The blade is sharp right from the package and it made short work of the test cuts I made in various diameters of PEX I was working with. The cuts were clean and nicely square and ready for joining. I also really like the mechanism for locking the cutter in the closed position so that it the blade is protected in my plumbing tool bag. I really have no criticisms of this extremely capable tool.

1-5/8 in. Ratcheting Pipe Cutter by Milwaukee Packaging: Hanging blister pack Contents: One pipe ...
1-5/8 in. Ratcheting Pipe Cutter by Milwaukee Packaging: Hanging blister pack Contents: One pipe cutter First Impressions: Good looking, strong Description: This is a pipe cutter for all soft material pipes. It can cut thru pipe up to 1-5/8 inches. The two handles lock together for storage based upon a thumb-activated plastic latch at the end of one handle. One simply rolls the knurled end one way or the other to make the latch engage or disengage the opposite handle. This works well. The pipe is to lay within the curve of one jaw, while the other jaw's knife comes down thru it. Applying a squeeze-and-release pumping action to the handles will ratchet the jaws together and press the knife thru the pipe to cut it. Opening the jaws will release the pressure by popping the knife back open. Usage: This cutter worked as well as any of this type that I have tried. Over a long day's use, this will become a real hand strengthener. One problem I had with it was that it tended not to cut squarely thru the pipe. Also, it did not hold the pipe in the curve of the one jaw but instead pushed it forward until the knife could engage it. These are problems for which a redesign is in order. Overall Thoughts: Not recommended because of the very high price.

This is a Milwaukee brand ratcheting PVC pipe cutter. It is only designed to be used on PVC pipe and could be used to cut rubber of other soft materials. The pipe cutter fits well in the hand. The ratcheting mechanism works well in all positions.The pipe cuts thin wall 1120 PVC pipe easily without crimping the pipe almost in half like other cutters. The blade is sharp.

This pipe cutter is a very high end, professional grade cutter. It has a 2 3/8" jaw allowing it to cut up to 2" plastic pipe. It can cut larger pipe, but I have discovered it works best with 2" or less. It is well designed and very solid so that each cut is straight making construction of plumbing projects easier. The way the blade is designed, it will pierce your pipe without cracking or crushing it. I have cut a lot of pipe in my time so having a cutter with handles designed to fit in your hand comfortably so you can do a great deal of cutting without the fatigue associated with some cutters was a big plus for me. It is constructed with a stainless steel blade to stay sharp longer and last longer. It has a heavy-duty metal locking devise in the handle to keep them closed when not in use.

A beautiful clean square cut every time with the Milwaukee 1-5/8 in. ratcheting pipe cutter. The angled knife first pierces the pipe, starting the cut with ease and little effort. From start to finish, Milwaukee's angled knife surpasses every straight knife pipe or hose cutters I have used before. The cuts are square, clean, and only require light chamfering if desired. Even when cutting hose that is softer than plastic pipe, the cuts in hose are also square and clean right though the hose reinforcement filaments. Milwaukee engineers' professional grade tools are designed to last a lifetime when properly maintained. The tool quality is second to no other. I recommend to anyone who plans to install or maintain their own in ground irrigation system, to use a plastic pipe cutter. Doing so will make the job much easier and go much faster than doing the job with a hacksaw. There are no instructions included with the pipe cutter. To return the cutting knife to the open position, simply pull or push the ratcheting handle in the opposite direction and the knife opens fully.

I'm using this to cut 1 1/2" pvc pipes for bathroom groups. Tool works great with a nice sharp blade. My only issue with it is that I cut so much 2" that I should have gotten the oversized one for up to 2 1/2" so I don't need so many tools in my bag. On its own I wouldn't change a thing.
