        Q:Can this cutter also be used on softer materials (PVC / CPVC / PEX)?  Thank you!

        Answer This Question

        A:  Close Quarter cutters are meant for copper tubing but in a pinch you can them for the other pipes. Using them for pipes other than copper could cause them to crack during operation.

        by|Jul 7, 2022

          A:  Hi, this is only able to cut hard and soft copper, aluminum, brass, and plastic tubing.

              Ridgid Close Quarters Tubing Cutter
              I recently purchased a Ridgid 1” Close Quarters Tubing Cutter. It comes with a spare wheel. This Ridgid cutter is capable of cutting between 1/4” and 1 1/8” thick tubing. At the present time for the project that I am working on I only need it for cutting a 1/2” plastic coated copper gas line. I have a Generac Centurion backup generator and I needed to run a new 1/2” gas line to it. I dug my 18” trench and buried the new line, then cut the line with the Ridgid tube cutter close to the unit where it is stubbed out of the ground. Now I just need to get a couple of fittings to connect it up to the tank and generator. This Ridgid tube cutter makes for an easy and quick clean cut. It is also designed to be used in tight spaces. I highly recommend it.

              Quality product
              First time for me having to cut copper pipe to install my new Rheem water heater. I probably could have picked a cheaper cutter, but liked the design and felt this one would probably be more solid and last for years. Cut the pipe easy as expected and the small size would allow me to do other jobs if needed. Just follow the directions and watch a few YouTube videos if its your first time using one of these.

                Tool Broken on First Use
                I purchased this tool online and had just received it. Had a 1" older stainless steel pipe to cut. Made a score in the pipe and about 1/2 of the way through the cutting, a very important piece on the tool snapped and broke. I was unable to use it at that point and ended up completing the cut with a hacksaw. To me, it was clearly faulty manufacturing. There is nothing about using this on an older pipe so this should not have happened. I plan to return it for either a replacement or my money back, but the tool did not function to my satisfaction.

                  At first I bought the Home Depot brand cutter because I didn't want to pay $25 for a tubing cutter that I would only use a few times. But the first time I tried using the Home Depot brand cutter it literally broke in half. So after that experience I decided to spend the money because of the copper tubing I had to cut. It had to be clean and straight and I only had one shot at it. This thing worked perfectly. Now I have it in case I need to cut any more copper, except for the fact that all I use now is PEX LOL Anyway, I highly recommend this product, it's well worth the price.

                  First, I'm a female who needed to have a water shut off valve repaired due to it leaking when turned off. I called a plumbing company and they quoted me $800 to $1,000 to replace shut off valve and put in a new toilet I bought. I thought "no way - I'll do it myself!" I watched you tube on replacing shut off valve and then on setting a toilet. I was really to tackle it. Well, I couldn't get the old valve off so I ran to Home Depot and bought this cutter. It worked perfectly and I replace the water shut off valve all by myself!! Getting ready to set new toilet next!

                  For me the Ridgid #101 Tube Cutter is a back saver. Long Story short, running electrical wire almost 400’ through underground conduit proved to be more difficult than it should have been. I ended up digging three holes in difficult, dry, compacted clay. I was able to easily cut the PVC tubing and access the wire and advance my cause without digging deeper. Happy is an understatement. I would have surely damaged the wiring if I had used a hack saw or other type of cutter. This cutter is well constructed, guaranteed, easy to use, and even comes with a replacement blade. It is at least professional grade and of the quality one has learned to expect from the Ridgid Brand. Great Tube Cutter, Ridgid.

                  Just purchased and only used one time so far for a test. Re-piping under house and wanted to be sure it worked before crawling down there. Good clean cut on 1" copper with minimal burr to ream out. For the knuckleheads complaining that the "included spare cutter" is missing; Unscrew the handle. For the knuckleheads at Rigid; tell the knucklehead users it is under the handle.

                    Cut copper pipe well. However, for tight spaces there are smaller profile tubing cutters.
