Love this tool for professional use
I am a bathroom remodeling contractor who uses this product on every job. It takes a little getting used to as far as how to position the jaws on the pipe. Even if it frustrates me occasionally the time savings makes up for it significantly. I toss this tool on the floor occasionally and have never had a problem. It is extremely well made. I don't know what people do with this tool to break it. I have been using it for the past 3 years without a problem.

Excellent tool!
I am an HVAC and Plumbing contractor and have used this tool for a couple years now. I just purchased another to have as a spare on the truck.

There are a couple things about this tool that should be known.

The positioning of the pipe is important for 1/2 and 3/4 pipe but you will get the feel for it after a while. If the tool is not properly positioned it will bind on the pipe, or will just rotate and not acctually cut.

The tool will handle water if cutting a line with water in it, however the tool needs to be stored with the cutting end DOWN and battery up, to drain any water from the tool.

It is important to keep fresh wheels in, or they begin to walk.

Between this tool, and the ProPress, it has cut boiler installation times into a matter of a couple hours. I now have two of each on the truck to reduce downtime.

Highly recommend you take a peice of pipe and just practice cuts for a while until you get the feel for the tool. Once you know it, it works great!

Pros
Easy To Use
Wish I had this at the start of project
My project entailed removing a 27 year old home solar water system. I took things out in as long sections as I could, but using manual cutters got old quickly and left me with very sore hands and wrists.
This tool arrived in time to prepare the piping for recycling. I probably made 150 cuts in 4 hours.I was able to cut off couplings and other solder joints and cut piping into short lengths. With a little work and this great tool, I had some great #1 copper pipe and some lesser value #2 soldered copper fittings. If I had left it uncut and unsorted, it all would have graded out as a bunch of #2. I got ~ $500 for the copper. This tool was worth every penny. Yes, I could have cut and sorted the copper manually, but I am glad that I didn't have to. Thanks Milwaukee!

I use it on the job, running 7/8 to 1/2 inch hard copper lines. it cut my work load by 50%. 1/2 inch is a little tricky till you get it down. a little much for around the house.

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.
