"These are a joy to use, simple, perfect cut on conjuit and plastic water pipes and no need to tidy the ends. I gave it 5* for features, although it has one function - cutting plastic pipe. However, it cuts the workload due to the finish on the pipe not needing attention. had one for three years and never failed, well, apart from when I dropped my concrete breaker on it, thus requiring this new purchase...."
"This cutter is ideal for the Trades Person or DIY enthusiast. at around half the price of similar branded versions. does the job quickley and accurately. Robust and easy to use, creates a straight and clean cut."
"chose this over the more expensive 'speedfit' brand as they looked both the same.
It works... but the speedfit pipe does warp a little when you attempt to cut which shouldn't be too much of a problem when using pipe inserts. Not sure if the branded cutter would be any better at all."
"I bought this as I tried using plastic pipe for the first time and the manufacturer (JG) recommended not using a hacksaw. This was half the price of the JG version and for the small job I did it was fine. You have to take care to ensure the cut is square though as the spring in the coil of plastic pipe tends to twist the pipe if you are not careful. None of my joints have leaked as yet and they are not all perfectly square."
"It's okay, however wish I had paid for the Speedfit one as this one seems like you need loads of pressure to cut through the pipe, it takes even more work with the 22mm pipe. It does the job for occasional use, but if you have lots of cuts it probably better to spend a bit more and get a better quality one, the plastic handles feel like they going to snap. Does the job, but could be better!"
"I have purchase cheap cutters before, and have regretted it! Since this was the only one available at the time I called into my local screwfix I needed to buy it for me to complete the job. But I have to say these are not bad for £8, soild handel, just the right size to fit in your hand (cheap one seem to be small). Only time will tell to see how long they will last, but I have done over ten jobs so far, which is more than the other cheap ones lasted."
