Ultimate Tubing Cutter!
This tool makes life easy, it's a wrist and hand saver! It takes the place of a helper on most jobs and allows me to get the work done that much more quickly.
I'm amazed that Ridgid didn't come out with this (it's why Milwaukee is going in the right direction, thinking about what specific trades need), one of those tools that i have been wanting for a long time!
Just a few things, BE CAREFUL using this (as with all cordless and power tools, practice safety) i have seen a coworker get his thumb caught in it and it wasn't pleasant, as most of us may use our thumbs to mark a cut on a piece of tubing, just remember to move it out of the way when cutting.

I've been using this for a few years now, it's a tough tool, but needs some getting used to, as with most tools, it's important to let the tool do the work, meaning a light touch is needed and good support for the work being cut! if you force this or twist it while cutting, it will fail on you, also IT NEEDS THE HIGHER CAPACITY batteries! the small one's it comes with are worthless (unless you're constantly charging them, maybe the newer series of Batts are better.
Im my experience it handles water well (cutting existing tubing with residual water in the line) i try to have the tool above the tubing so that the water falls down and not onto it, i keep the tool clean and lubricated and it's been working well so far.

Had to send the tool in for warranty repair a while back and Milwaukee repaired it free of charge (the cutting head locked in place, could have been something got caught in it).

Mixed Feelings
Quality control on refurbished pipe cutters is lacking to say the least.

The first one didn't cut pipe within the diameter and type range specified in the user maual of the cutter as being A-OK to be cut with this tool.

The second one came to me without the LED working at the head of the tool. Oh and the battery meter never reads over 3 of the four leds while the same battery packs read four of four on other M12 tools. When I dis-assembled the tool to diagnose and possibly repair the LED (yes I'm repairing a refurbished tool because there is no QC on these) I found that the two wires supplying power to the white LED were not passing a continutity test. Solder in a twisted pair from Cat 5e cabling and the LED works! Oh and I found a stray screw stuck to the motor, different variety from those used to assemble the tool. As for the battery level LED, I'm not sure of the exact cause but it isn't really a problem which hinders use of the tool and who knows how poorly refurbished the next one might be.

This is the worst refurbished tool experience I've had with CPO and I've purchased plenty of refurb tools from CPO.

IF and when you get a working unit, it does cut copper pipe quickly and cleanly... for how long it will do just that is unknown.

This thing is great, as a commercial plumber, i enjoy using this tool. It saves a lot of time and a lot of hurt hands after running copper all day at work. Be careful cutting short pieces make sure you hold the copper firmly because if the copper spins in your hand it could make a nice gash in your palm.

Great tool!
Love this tool! As with all Milwaukee tools, well worth the money. Solid! Makes cutting pipe a snap. Only wish they had a cutter that would cut up to 1 1/2"

Hold on firmly to tubing and let it ripe, cuts 1" thick wall pipe in about 10 seconds. No regrets here!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
