Pipe Cutters
5 Jan 2013
By
, London
"The particular job the cutters were used for was an external pipe which was accessed by a ladder. They allowed a 90 degree clean cut using one hand (I needed the other to hang on with). As other folk have commented it does away with the inevitable burr that the hacksaw always gives on plastic pipe and you can save time since you don’t have to clean it off. I was a bit worried about using it on older pipe (it had been there for 20 years) but I found no problems the cutters went through easily. As another reviewer has commented it does help to rotate the cutter relative to the pipe in order to get started.
Overall, I would say a good product which gives excellent results if you want to avoid the burrs and also on the occasions when you only have one hand available."

"Very solid and well made cutter for plastic pipe and conduit and similar. Slightly let down but the awkward feel of opening the jaws."

Reliability not good.
30 Jun 2012
By
, Tamworth
"These are really strong cutters and I would have expected them to last even though I use them every day.
Unfortunately, both the circlips which hold the two pivot pins in place have dropped off and got lost after only a few weeks. This means the pins constantly keep dropping out. I have replaced one with a bolt and need to do the other.
Guess I should have returned them, but that would mean managing without or facing the same problem with a replacement pair.
I wouldn't do without.because once you get the knack, the cut is fast, straight and above all clean."

Decent Cutter
29 Jun 2011
By
, London
"If cutting thin-walled pipe, there is a bit of a knack to using this cutter.
You have to squeeze it until it presses into the pipe a little, give a small twist to get it to bite and then it cuts beautifully.
I use these a LOT and once you get the knack it's pretty quick and easy.
Only thing is the spring for the ratchet has a tendency to break after a while - but this is probably after thousands of cuts.
Good cutter for the price."

"rachet it on a little, turn it backwards and forwards producing quick nice clean cuts. Not a trade user so not sure how sharp the blade keeps."

one handed operation
16 Apr 2012
By
, Batley,West yorks
"I bought this cutter because I needed a cutter for overflow pipe for a toilet my first choice was out of stock and the next one a little pricey.
So I ended up with this by default although it is ok for one handed operation the blade could do to be sharper and the ratchet slightly finer.
if these issues were sorted it would be a better tool on the whole not bad for the money.

"Took out of packet & tried on new 40mm waste pipe.
They would not cut at all & just squashed pipe.
Returned for credit.
