Top Customer Reviews
It's a ratcheting cutter. What that means is you squeeze your hands 4-6 times to cut through the pipe (not like scissors). The 2nd and 3rd "pumps" do require a good amount of strength to cut through.
You can make very accurate cuts with this tool since you can see exactly where the blade will cut through.
I've seen other reviews on here complaining about straight cuts (or lack thereof). That's mostly on you, and a matter of strength. I came up with a good system where I put the red part (non-blade) on the ground and pushes down like a stapler. I made lots of great straight cuts.
This is my first video review, so hopefully you find it helpful.
Mostly what I do isn't picky about square as long as its close, which it is, but the specific project I ordered this for requires square cuts, so that's a bummer, but I should still be able to get good use out of this.
The cutter I received doesn't cut squarely because the blade comes down at an angle and it doesn't matter how careful I am positioning the pipe, as soon as the blade reaches it, it gets clamped in place between the blade and the guard so there is no way for me to re-position the pipe for a square cut.
From what I can tell from my own experience as well as other reviews for this product, some cutters do cut square, some don't. I'm all for allowing for user error, but I noticed that as I was bringing the blade down (just testing the mechanism, not cutting pipe) that the blade was angling toward one side as it went instead of coming down square.
I used this to install over 1400 feet of sprinkler lines (3/4") and never had a problem. You just pull the handles to open the tool, and five clicks later it has made a perfect cut. It will not cut rubber sprinker hose 1/4" but will slick thru Rainbird 1/2" hose.
I understand other people reviews about 'pulling it back'. After every notch is cranked you must pull it back all of the way so that the latch falls onto the next tooth of the gear. So keep that in mind.
