Only reason I wouldn't get this is because 1 1/2 inch PVC is very common for drains. You're going to need a bigger cutter anyway.

I wony use ratchet cutters on pipe larger than 1.25" if thenpipe is cold it can crack, as well as it bending over the backside of the cut causing you to have to chamfer the pipe

I don't understand these 1 1/4 inch ratchet cutters. Just redid all the plumbing for bath remodel and minimum per code was 1 1/2 inch. Also 2 inch for vent and 3 inch for toilet. I could cut 1 1/2 inch with my 7 1/4 inch miter saw but it was mostly too much trouble to setup each time to make a couple of cuts so I just used a cheap 10 inch pull saw from HF. Takes a couple minutes for a 3 inch cut and less than a minute for a 1 1/2 inch code.

I agree, I use the ratcheting cutters for 3/4" sch 40 for condensate drains. I have never tried them on sink tailpieces, extension tubes and wall bends.

I exclusively used this tool for 1/2 or 3/4 plumbing repairs in house. It is much faster than a hand saw or hack saw and easier to get into tight spaces. You obviously don't use this to cut bigger pipes than it was designed to cut. Thanks for the post.

Quote from MaroonPanther3033 :
Nobody but homeowner elitist wannabe plumbers who have no clue what they're doing would buy this. Homeowners or handymen who work with PVC periodically would just use a sawzall or chop saw. Plumbers and electricians use small hand-held band saws.

This is a product designed to solve a problem that doesn't exist.
Its handy for cutting pipe for condensate drains in crawl spaces where you don't have a lot of space to move around and don't want to leave the crawl to make a cut.

You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar!

I can attest that the Kobalt version of this tool because EXACTLY as you describe. I was outside right before winter with a small Sch 20 pipe and it kept cracking. After trying to warm it, worked well, but chamfered.

Worked fine all other times for small low pressure hvac condensate drain pipe.

Why would you want a cut to take minutes?

Because you want to make sure that the cut is at a perfect 90 degree angle so when you join there are no gaps and with rigid pipes you need to measure carefully so you are not too short or too long. 2 minutes is not a long time to make a cut under those constraints. If you are a DIYer you are not doing that many cuts. You only need cuts at turn points or joining points and I probably did less than 10 cuts for the entire bath including drain and vent for tub, toilet and sink so it doesn't matter if it take takes 2 minutes or 1.

Should be great for cutting Pex with spare blades and a little case.

The size limitations are obvious, while my larger ratchet cutters are made by Reed, that you can sometimes catch on eBay pretty cheap.

Note: By industry best methods, you do not use ratchet cutters on PVC or CPVC that are solvent glued.... the small fractures created can and will cause failure. For those, as well as ABS, you use a tubing cutter like this one [reedmfgco.com] or hand saw.

Yeah I use these cutters all the time. When it's cold you just twist the pipe as your cutting and you won't have a problem with the pipe cracking.

For drain plumbing I have started to like just using my cordless circular saw. For supply lines like pex I would use this. The cheapo pex cutter is like 6$, and it works great. But maybe this is good too
