The MILWAUKEE M12 Copper Tubing Cutter is the industry's first cordless unit, cutting up to 10X faster than conventional tubing cutters. Milwaukee engineered this versatile copper tubing cutter for plumbers, mechanical contractors, and remodelers that runs at 500 RPM for unmatched cutting speed.

The patent-pending cutting mechanism automatically adjusts diameter to cut Type K, L, and M copper pipes from 3/8" to 1" (OD from ½" to 1-1/8"). The unique rotating cutting head cuts installed copper piping with as little as 1-1/2" clearance, and the lightweight, the inline design provides users with a longer reach and reduces wrist strain when working in confined spaces.

Makes the work so much easier!!
Milwaukee’s M12 Copper Tubing Cutter cuts ten times faster than conventional cutters making it a must have on the job site. The cutter runs at 500 RPMs for incredible cutting speed. The cutter automatically adjusts to fit copper pipes ranging from 1/2” to 1 1/8” outer diameter. Because of the unique design of the cutting head you only need minimum 1 1/2” clearance to make the cut making this tool a perfect fit for tighter spaces you are working in. The cutter has a built in LED to illuminate the area that you are cutting. The metal cutting head is corrosion and rust resistant and also sealed for water protection. The tool also has an onboard battery fuel gauge that helps you monitor how much battery you have left. I am currently in the process of doing demolition on a building that I recently purchased and the remodel will take out 5 separate 5 person bathrooms and consolidate into one large bathroom so there is a ton of copper in the building that I will be reusing and to use a traditional hand copper pipe cutter to remove and reinstall the copper made no sense so I purchased this cutter for the job. The cutter works great on all three pipe sizes as described above. Cuts typically take 3-5 seconds and the cuts are clean every time. Replacing the cutting wheel is simple and you can purchase replacement cutting wheels (product number 48-38-0010). I typically run the cutter with a 4.0 battery and it has never died on my even after making cuts all day. There is a switch on the tool that has a cutting mode and when you flip the switch it moves the cutter back into position so you can place on the pipe. Make sure you don’t force the pipe all the way to the back of the cutter but let it sit nicely in the groves for a nice clean cut. Very easy to use and a great addition to my tool collection!!

    Absolutely love this tool. Bought another one.
    Great too great design. I use it for copper tubing and steel lubrication & hydraulic tubing while on installs. Not only is is much faster but it is WAY. Easier on your wrists and hands by the end of the day.

      Very good construction and saved allot of time ! It’s worth the investment for sure. I installed 3 on demand water heaters with allot of precision on the cut. I think as well the light aids in marking cuts visible Very good product.

      Must have multi tool
      I’ve been a long time Milwaukee fan and this multi tool does not disappoint. I’ve used it for just about cutting anything you could imagine. Makes cutting for electric boxes in shiplap a dream and drywall like cutting hot butter. If needed you can cut a 2x4 no problem. The trick to a quality cut for what your cutting is the blade quality, there expensive but worth every penny. If you buy cheap blades you will not like it. It can be a battery hog so have a few battery’s and a 4 amp hr battery is best for big jobs. It’s a bargain and the possibility’s are endless even cuts pvc and copper. Highly recommended this tool.

        Price doesn’t reflect quality
        Had for a few years but only used a handful of times for small DIY projects. 1 star for ergonomics. Definitely not beat up, even the bag is still clean. The positive side of the plug got stuck in the battery. No idea how this even happens, battery gets pulled straight out. Tool didn’t even pay for itself.

            This is the Milwaukee M12 Multi-Tool kit. It comes with two batteries (one 3.0 Ah and one 1.5 Ah), Charger, and Bag. I bought this tool for one specific purpose—to cut out holes in sheetrock for electrical boxes (see Photo 1). It gets really old using a corded tool for this purpose, so I decided to go cordless. This tool is absolutely perfect for this job. It’s light, easy to maneuver, and gets the job done quickly. Highly recommended.

            A little heavy compared to others but works great to cut in outlets. Has a variable speed selector.
