About This Product

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 included M12 Battery and ultra-efficient gearing allow users 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, the inline design provides users with a longer reach and reduces wrist strain when working in confined spaces. A built-in LED light illuminates the cutting surface. The electronic overload protection and unibody construction provide maximum durability. An onboard, real-time battery fuel gauge helps users monitor the charge precisely, so there's less downtime on the job. In addition to the M12 Copper Tubing Cutter, this kit includes an M12 Battery Charger and an M12 REDLITHIUM CP1.5 Battery Pack.

          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.

          PVC great PEX not so much
          I lost track of my PEX Cotter the hand type and after seeing a Milwaukee specialist said their power tool was rated for PEX as well I tried it on a piece and just as my instincts dictated it would not work properly if this is correct I stand corrected but I’m on the way out to go buy a new chesp hand tool

            Love it easy to use Cutting faster, cleaner and closer than other cutters, the new M12 Cordless PVC Shear utilizes cuts, slices through 2" PVC in as fast as 3 seconds, and offers an offset blade to cut PVC mounted to a stud or close to a wall plus the battery last as much as 3 days depending on what is used for the new PVC Shear is able to cut over 200 times is very useful for me

            This is way more tool than a homeowner would need in a lifetime, and is more geared to a business, or group of people that do such work on a frequent basis. I do not cut pvc or plastic pipe for a living, but I am on the board of directors with my local Irrigation Association. I bought this for my own personal use since when we are in the thick of things, with high summer temps, the water must keep flowing. Many of times there are repetitive cuts to be made, and things along that line to do necessary repairs. We work mostly with schedule 40 pipe. This is a fairly large tool. I took one of the pictures next to a standard 12 inch ruler to try and give you an idea of the size. Typical Milwaukee build quality, and very well thought out in design. So if you must have the best of the best, and other types of cutters are not working for you, this is the one to get, PERIOD!

              In response to the review titled "Disappointing" - you had the tool stuck in between gears!
              I have one of these and love it except that I got a nick in the blade and now it just shatters pipe. I need a new blade. For the person who posted a review titled "Disappointing", if the tool makes those clicking sounds, the tool is in between forward and reverse gears. I have had that happen many times. Under normal use, you apply power in the cutting (blade closing) direction and once the pipe is cut, you push the button to let the blade spring open. However, if you get the tool stuck or need to back out of a cut, you can select a switch that is on the side of the tool opposite from the trigger to reverse the powered direction of the cut. Sometimes, the tool gets stuck in between and you just need to fiddle with it a little. I have also had this happen when I used the spring release of the blade and the cutting gear ratchet just didn't quite catch on the next cut. Just wiggle the blade. When this tool is working right, it will cut up to 2" schedule 40 and schedule 80. It has plenty of power. BE FOREWARNED, YOU SHOULD USE SAFETY GLASSES WHEN OPERATING THIS TOOL. PVC PIPE DOES NOT BEND OR FOLD AS YOU MIGHT THINK THAT PLASTIC WOULD - IT SHATTERS CATASTROPHICALLY. THIS IS THE SAME REASON THAT YOU MUST NOT USE PVC FOR COMPRESSED AIR, IT IS ACTUALLY MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN USING METAL PIPE ALTHOUGH THAT MAY SEEM COUNTER-INTUITIVE. IF YOU USE THIS TOOL TO CUT LESS THAN AN INCH OFF THE END OF A PVC PIPE, YOU WILL GET ABOUT HALF WAY THROUGH AND THEN SHARP PIECES OF PVC WILL SHATTER VIOLENTLY FROM THE TOOL. Just a heads up!! You have plenty of fingers to loose, but you need both eyes!!

                This tools works great
                I was working on a building project where I needed to cut a lot of 1-1/2 inch PVC. I had been using traditional methods of hack saw, skill saw, hand cutters and chop saw. The hack saw was hard to keep straight and get a pure edge, the hand cutters would not cut straight on 1-1/2 inch pipe and the electric saws worked but the shavings made a mess and were hard to clean up. I was a skeptic when I saw this tool but decided to purchase based on reading the reviews. What a great tool - easily cuts 1-1/2 Schedule 40 PVC straight with no shavings every time!

                Great, no waste, no mess!
                I was using a mitre saw as I make hundreds of cuts every couple of weeks. What a mess that was. Yay, no more hours cleaning my shop.
