    I have very mixed feelings about this tool. I have always made do with the $20 cutters from whatever big box store I happen to be in. When I’m replacing a single valve or a sprinkler those tools are fine. Frankly, if I could get replacement blades for the cheaper tool I’d probably just do that. However, when I was facing down building and replacing an 8-valve manifold not to mention running all new 3/4 pipe on a quarter of my acre, I wanted something more substantial. I found that in this tool. However, I have a couple of gripes. For starters, and this might not bother some people, the tool is made in China. I don’t even care about the country of origin, but when a company is manufacturing in China I do not expect the tool to be more than twice the price of other Chinese-made tools that do the same job. Second, the pipe cradle is more of a “U” than then the regular tools which makes it more difficult to get into tight spots. Working underground is almost always a tight spot unless you want to dig more than necessary. Third gripe, the blade springs fully open each time you open it. There’s no way to open it just enough for what you need. I suppose the positive side to that is you can push the blade down to meet the material by hand saving 3 or 4 squeezes when working with ¾ material. Finally, I don’t believe the blade is very much better than any PVC cutter you can get off the shelf. It was sharp when I started which allowed me to avoid cracking some older schedule 80. But like any blade it started dulling. One of the reasons I bought this cutter was for the replaceable blade. Unfortunately, the blades cost as much as a new cutter from a big box. If the tool was ten bucks less and the replacement blades were 5 bucks less I think this would be a win. But the price to value takes a couple of stars.

    Didn''t have good luck with this product. Purchased this and a Cal-Van PVC cutter at the same time and this is on the scrap pile. The best things about this tool is the super sharp blade and heavy duty construction. The challenge is older PVC shatters when in tight quarters and its impossible to work the cutter around the pipe to score it. The competition has a V shape blade that applies pressure in a very small area and widening as it ratchets down reducing the risk of shattering the pipe. The main reason I''m not replacing this is that it jams if debris gets between the blade and frame in the closed position. For the most part, Ridgid products are solid and this one didn''t hold up to the environmental conditions I subjected it to. For electrical PVC work that doesn''t subject this tool to mud, 5-stars. For irrigation repair, it doesn''t meet my needs.

    Unfortunately, I''ve had many many many of these in the past. This particular pair failed within one and a half weeks, the blade will not retract on its own, and the blade is rusting. I mean honestly, when I cut PVC, there may be water inside. I find it crazy that the blade isn''t stainless. It''s also interesting that the internals of the cutters rust and things begin to seize up internally. The only part that doesn''t rust is the aluminum body. So, I am not going to be purchasing rigid cutters anymore. There are other cutters that are in the 10 to $20 range that are better than these, and replacement blades cost half of what a new Rigid blade costs.

    Update: these cutters became so unusable in a month''s time they ended up being thrown away. I honestly have never had a pair of Rigid cutters the way this pair did... And I will never own another pair of Rigid cutters

    I am a wastewater treatment plant operator so I am often doing pvc pipe repairs and these are the best pipe cutters I''ve ever used. They may seem a little on the pricey side, but they are well worth it. they slice through schedule 80 pipes with little effort. These are soo much easier on your hands and wrist than cheaper inferior versions. With replaceable blades this tool will last a lifetime. I wish I had them years ago, definitely one of my most prized possessions. I wouldn''t even loan these out to my grandmother. If you invest in these I promise you wont regret it!

    The spring catch on this unit broke internally. I took it apart to see why the blade was not retracting and saw the broken sheet steel component. Used this thing about 30 times to cut some polypropylene tubing and this. The whole thing is perfect.... but without that one component, it''s in the trash. I will see if Rigid sells the component, but I can imagine that this is their mechanical fuse to have planned obsolescence. Sadly, it works great.... until it didn''t anymore.

    Update - Rigid got back to me about potentially sending me a replacement component. There''s no option for this. So, that''s the end of the story. I have a beautiful machine... that needs a part that costs maybe $0.05... and the whole thing grinds to a halt because I cannot get a replacement.

    Don''t think you are going to be able to cut 1-1/2" pipe with this, despite the fact that it states 1/8-1-5/8". Maximum size ABS or PVC the jaws of this cutter will accommodate is 1-1/4"...
    Other than that, it is of superior quality.

    I’m not a pro & don’t use this for pipe cutting. What I’m using it for is cutting my family’s hundreds of cheap plastic clothes hangers into 3 pieces each for recycling (both the thin plastic kind & the felt-covered plastic composite kind). I’m replacing them with sturdier, more attractive hangers. I tried to use already owned, but inappropriate, tools to cut the hangers (Knipex 74200 & Klein D2328 wire cutters, & HK Porter 2000 bolt cutter, none of which are intended for plastic cutting), & it was too much trouble to use a saw. So I found out what I already knew: they couldn’t do the job without exerting lots of force & twisting. So I bought this Ridgid plastic cutter & it works great, with little effort.

    Many of the other plastics cutters I researched were not able to cut as small a diameter as needed for my job, but this one cuts down to 1/8” diameter, so it works where others wouldn’t. A solid, well-made aluminum tool with a very nice textured finish & positive ratchet action.

    This is a good in-between cutting tool. The cheap tools don''t cut square and don''t ratchet well which if frustrating for me in a tight spot. This one doesn''t take much room to ratchet and cuts square enough. I was told that the Klein pipe cutter was the best but it sells for $220 more. I wish I could try these side by side. I did try the Klein and got a quick, square cut. This Rigid tool was also quick and the cuts almost square. Probably about 1/16 in. off at the most, other times apparently square. I''ve been using $15 cutters and have to buy a new one each year and have to put up with very un-square cuts. Something like 1/4 in. off. For the extra $32 I think I did well. We''ll see by this time next year.

Also this used to shatter the pipe all the time if you didn’t score it a lot. Spares are more expensive than buying a new one. Wouldn’t recommend this for the price. I cannot find a good plastic cutter I have been through 8 different brands and having no luck.
