        A Plumbers most useful tool!
        I have been a plumber for over nineteen years now. And I have always had to carry six different sizes to work on various size pipes.. this one wrench replaces all of them. Two of them replaced six!! That saves me so much room !!!

          Best pipe wrench ever
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a plumber and use pipe wrenches all the time. This wrench beats all of the ones I currently own. The fact that it has the ability to go from an 11" to a 24" pipe wrench is amazing. I literally only have to use this one now. The removable extension makes it perfect to get into tight spots. My favorite feature, it has the jaw size of a regular 24" pipe wrench but can be used as an 11" one. I love Milwaukee tools, and this by far, is one of my favorites.

            Milwaukee Cheater pipe wrench
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have gotten this wrench about a month ago it is an outstanding ranch as far as pipe wrenches go lightly large biting surface cheater power built into the handle which extends out for more leverage a swivel on the end of the cheater bar for safety strap Very light weight easy to hold onto in the way that the handle built feels good in your hand

              Pipe wrench with a big bite
              The biggest advantage to this wrench is its versatility. This wrench easily adjusts to be large enough to grab a 2 inch pipe coupling. At the same time it will close down and do a great job on half inch pipe. The weight is much reduced since the body is aluminum and with the adjustable extension you can get a lot of leverage if needed when working with the larger pipe sizes. The teeth are really nice and sharp so there is minimal or no slipping. With two of these wrenches you almost wouldn't need anything else

              Excellent choice for a Pipe Wrench
              The Milwaukee Aluminum Cheater Pipe Wrench This Milwaukee Pipe Wrench has the best of both worlds built in. If you finally realized that you didn't need to carry a heavy wrench everywhere you went your right. Milwaukee lightened the pipe wrench by making the basic frame from aluminum, but both jaws, the upper jaw frame and the adjuster barrel nuts are still hardened steel. The wrench extends, with the lower extension handle to a full 21 inches. You also can completely remove the handle extension and use the aluminum framed wrench at its reduced length of 11 inches in those tight space, like those you find under a sink. Having the reduced weight with the aluminum frame and still possessing the hardened steel jaws and then adding the built-in extender to get that increased leverage is a winning combination in anyone's book. It’s a definite winner with me.

              The Milwaukee Aluminum Cheater Pipe Wrench is amazingly lightweight and deceivingly strong. I was very surprised how light it actually is when I opened the package. It has a lifetime warranty from Milwaukee. Milwaukee packed this tool with some great features: super gripping jaws, expanding built-in cheater pipe, removable cheater pipe, jaws can open to 3 1/4 inches (although it advertises maximum to be 2 1/2 inches), minimal length is 11 inches without the cheater pipe, and the multi-length design (with cheater pipe) extends from 18 inches to 24 inches. The jaw teeth have an excellent grip. The upper jaw teeth measure 7/8 inch wide by 1 5/8 inches long. The lower jaw is slightly smaller measuring 7/8 inch wide by 1 5/16 inches long. The extra cheater handle adjusts to any length, locking in place, and it can also be removed by extending all the way out, then apply a slight counterclockwise twist while pushing it back in about 1/8 inch and twisting it all the way. Once it stops, then pull the pipe out the rest of the way. The tip of the cheater pipe swivels to allow the wrench to be hung on a peg board. There were very few instructions provided with it. I’ve used this on 2-inch galvanized pipe very successfully and highly recommend it. It’s a very nice wrench, fits nicely in your toolbox and doesn’t add a lot of weight. Made in China.

              Major safety issue
              The extendable handle can slip during usage possibly leading to pinching your hand in the mechanism. The handle also can be pulled out even to the point of coming completely detached from the rest of the wrench during usage. I tested two of these wrenches, so its definitely a design flaw and not just a problem with the one I purchased. The locking system is not adequate.

              Hello Johnathunda, we appreciate you taking the time to post a review. We will email you for further information on what you have found with the CHEATER Adaptable Pipe Wrench. Thanks! -Cayla with Milwaukee Tool
                Compact, sturdy and very well made. However, not as light as I expected and a bit bulky for small to medium hands. It weighs approximately 4.5 lbs. compared to my cheap aluminum 18-inch pipe wrench which came in at 3 lbs. Keep in mind the Milwaukee is longer and therefore has more weight. Looking at it you wouldn’t think the main body is made from aluminum but it is, and a bit bulky. However, the extension is made out of steel. Also, the shaft part (i.e., quick slide handle) comes completely out, which to me was not initially evident, to a short 11 inches. That’s great for tight spaces. So, with the shaft installed, it will extend from 18" – 24.” It has a lock to the shaft and it’s solid – no loosening when using pipe wrench. Jaws open to 2.5 inches and are hardened. It’s a great tool that will fit most tool boxes, draws or bags but substantial weight and bulky to hold.

                To say that Milwaukee is synonymous with quality would be an understatement. This wrench backs that up one hundred percent. It is lighter than it looks. Gives you the ability for getting a bigger wrench in a tighter spot as well as minimizes storage space. Extended, it gives you the needed leverage for loosening or tightening those stubborn pipes, fittings etc. It is easy to see that a lot of thought and engineering went into to the development of this wrench. It is not a copy or knock off of any other brand. It is the real deal. Sturdy. Heavy Duty. Ready to use and handy as heck. Some may have commented that this wrench doesn't come with any instructions. My thoughts are, if need instructions to operate this you probably don't need this size of wrench. As I look around my garage, I'm seeing more and more red showing up for all the DIY trades that I dabble in. From the tool box to the organizers, it's Milwaukee for me all the way.
