From the Manufacturer
This is a great tool to have when you don't have enough swing room to use a full size tubing cutter. You can cut copper tubing with less than one inch of clearance. And it's ideal for stub-out work. And it's quicker than conventional cutters. Just snap it on the tube, close the gate and turn in either direction. The cutter wheel automatically tightens as you turn the AutoCut- no knobs to twist. The cutter wheel is spring loaded to provide a constant cutting pressure, so you'll never accidentally crimp the tubing.
Top customer reviews
I only cut a few pipes using the 1/2 inch version (I bought the 3/4" too).
Snap it on the pipe, and rotate it. When you're really close to the joist, it will take some strength because you can't grip it properly,but you'll get it after a minute or two.
it works. Good tool.
Pro's: Simple to use. Clamp on and twist (trick, follow the arrow for at least a turn, then try reversing a bit, then going forward a turn, reversing a bit... etc. It works faster with less burs)
Good grip (when dry)
Strong/Well built (I have many that are over 10 years old)
Fast (When used with my technique, I can cut copper pipe in a few seconds, much faster than other cutters)
Con's: Hard to change the blades out (but not impossible, and the blades are very cheap to buy)
When wet, they are hard to start at times.
Cuts are not always without burs. (you still must debur, sand, etc...)
Overall, if you do a lot of copper work, whether plumbing, or hvac, you need these tools. Be aware, they are not adjustable, so if you are cutting specialty copper, these will take a while. I don't recommend for extra thick copper or "soft/rolled" copper.
I will continue to recommend and if needed, buy more in the future. Auto-cuts have a definite advantage over other knockoffs that feature an open design. They just aren't as good at staying put and slip off, which is dangerous.
