Rated 4 out of 5 by from helpful tool This is a handy tool if you cut 1/2 inch PEX. Also available for 3/4 PEX. It is easy to use slide onto your PEX pipe and cut for a good solid clean cut. Much easier to use then snips or a utility knife - no jagged edges to fix. Works best if you can do a complete 360 degree revolution. I used it to add some the shut off valves to existing PEX lines so it took a while longer since I couldn't go 360 degrees without hitting the joists. Simply had to move it a couple of times but was still able to get a clean cut. Be careful, it is very sharp so go slow. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for 1/2" pex We were worried about getting square cuts on the pex using a hacksaw or utility knife, so we ran down to Home Depot and bought this cutting tool. I was wary after reading the mixed reviews about whether or not it cuts 1/2 pex well. I can now safely say it does not. We tried various methods of one of use holding both ends of the pex to make sure it was straight while in the cutter, but nothing worked. we ended up with far too many curly ends and had to use the utility knife to clean them up. Cutting them with a utility knife alone in the first place gave just as good results. I can see how it would work better for larger diameter pex, since the issue with the 1/2 is that the tool doesn't grip and hold the pipe in place, the tool is just slightly too large. Good luck everyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple But Good for Small Jobs Pros..Simple to use; Small enough to get into small spaces; rugged enough to survive in your toolbox; usable for 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch tubing. Cons...If used a lot, when the blade dulls you will have to get another cutter; for 1/2 inch PEX, slight movement in the jaws of the tool will result in a slightly less than square cut; With time (or really cold weather) the plastic may get brittle. Conclusion: For occasional use handy to have in the toolbox. The slightly "non-square" cut will not prevent proper sealing in push-on fittings (like Sharkbite).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great Got to try this cutter out on some 1/2" pex today it does a nice clean and straight cut just slide your pipe in and turn the cutter in the direction of the arrow that's on the handles and within a handful of turns your pipe is cut and ready to install. This is much better and faster than using a hacksaw and does a neater job makes life much easier. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purpose Designed Cutting Tool While this is advertised to cut PEX pipe it also will cut other 1/2' to 1" types of piping. It is compact and has a razor sharp edge, which by the way is not changeable, At least for now it makes nice non-burring clean cuts. That is important when using push on fittings because if you try to use a razor knife and don't get a clean cut or a burr on a water line you may have a line blow out. In comparing this to say a pair of standard PVC cutters it does make a cleaner precise cut. This is design specific tool, use it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great throw away tool It is fairly easy to use and simple but is not s tool you will be carrying around for long term use. If you have maintenance staff that works with pex piping this is a great cheap tool for your crew

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cuts but requires clearance to turn it This cutter does a great job cutting PEX, leaving a nice, squared off cut that doesn't have burrs or jagged edges. When the tube has been cut, it is immediately ready to be prepped with the deburring tool for making SharkBite connections. The spring action maintains proper tension on the blade for a smooth cut and, when seated on the tubing squarely (it is notched to maintain that positioning) does not "wander" from the cut path. One issue to deal with is that the cutter requires about 2+ inches clearance around the tubing, for the cutter to swivel around the tube to complete the cut. To cut tubing that is close to a wall or other structural member, a different method may be required. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tool! It cuts PEX easily, quickly, dead-square, no burr inside, doesn't oval the tubing. PERFECT cut every time. No more re-cutting because the end is a little crooked. No reaming an inside burr (SharkBite is OK with that, but some crimp fittings hate burrs). No more not-quite-round ends to squeeze into shape. Handy in tight places, light in the toolbox. Although very light, it is very robust. A drop won't even ding it. Likely to survive getting stepped on. Also cuts PVC to 3/4", and blue-grey flex conduit. Good for non-standard work. I needed a bunch of short bushings for levers. A half-inch of 3/4 PEX was perfect, but a ratchet-cutter wanted to smash the too-short end of the tubing. A knife worked but I nicked my hands. With this tool I can cut short bushings fast and perfect. I expect to be using it as long as I am installing or maintaining PEX (or similar) systems.
