Probably great on Pex but if you are working in a hole repairing Pvc you need a one handed device. That means you really need a ratchet type cutter. More expensive but a lot less frustration.

I had high hopes for this cutter since it carries the Rigid brand and they are known for quality tools, however, when I tried to cut the white plastic drain fitting to the correct length it distorted it. The first cut I tried pushed the plastic into an oval and then after some wiggling it started to cut it. The second cut did the same thing but when it finally cut through it was at an angle. I had to sand that flat. Finally, the Tee fitting that I needed to trim to length bowed in like the previous cuts and then I heard a crack. Fortunately I have a hack saw and I cut it to the right length. I tried to repair the crack with PVC glue and it was mostly covered by the part it went into so I hope it doesn''t leak.

This might work on heavier PVC like water lines (I haven''t tried it though) but it is NOT a good idea to use it for the white under the sink drain plumbing.

I was even able to cut 1-1/2 inch PEX with these without any issues. I just had to be careful and rotates them as I cut.

I researched pretty much every tubing cutter on Amazon and dozens from other online sources....nothing has better range than this for the price and thay doesn''t need to rachet.

They little wire loop at the end is annoying to have in your way when you cut. However, couldn''t find anything else that had this capacity and a different kind of handle lock. The Southwire cutters were not like thier photo. Thier handle locks just like this rigid does.

If you need the range this has you should get this. If you don''t you should try the lenox cutter with the lock on side of a handle.

I would not buy this again, especially for the price they charge. For what you are getting they are 2-3 times to much. You can get them to cut 1" pvc, if you are real careful and slowly work them around the pipe to cut through. If you are buying them for a one time job, cutting 3/4" or smaller they will work, but why pay this price, just but a cheaper type. If I could have waited to do the job, I did, I would have sent back, and bought another type, which I still have to do. Because, I need them for more than one job. I will keep this pair, incase, my nest pair break, and hope these will get me thru, until a replacement set arrives.

Sad to say you can buy the entire tool cheaper than you can replacement blades but that is why I bought it. It feels sturdy when using it. I would recommend it to others. Hmm - I see the little handle lock in the photo here and I do not recall that on mine but I have been so busy with it I probably did not notice. I can cut through both sizes of pipe just squeezing very hard - I do not have to saw back and forth with it to get through the pipe wall. I am 5''4 130 lb older female if that information might help someone know if this tool is for them or not

This is the first PVC cutter I''ve used. I thought this would cut the pipe like a knife going through butter. Not so. For some pieces it takes a lot of effort to get it to cut through. I know this is the tool to use instead of saws since it doesn''t leave little shards of PVC in the pipe, but for what I''m doing, that''s okay. I''ll use it in the future, but only when it''s the only solution.

The plastic handle and lack of rachet functionality makes it a chore to cut pipe. Also, the 1 5/8" measurement isn''t accurate. I had to cut a tube that was a little less than that, and it didn''t go through all the way. The cut was still off, just like my other one.

Simple and easy to use. Only bit that concerns me is the tiny piece of metal that holds the thing closed, pretty easy for it to get knocked out or broken.
