Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee M12 Copper Tubing Cutter Awesome tool....makes cutting of pipe in confined spaces effortless. Stopped using my assorted old tubing cutters and rely on this exclusively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy in Tight Spaces Replacing a lot of 40-year-old copper and most of it's in tight spaces in joists and around ducts and this makes it way faster and easier. Push it on, pull the trigger, done. Not sure how well it holds up to water over time, but I got it wet and it still lives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from greta tool if ti only worked longer I bought this for a quick job, it did the job almost complete without fail. But after I cut a pipe and some water came out and went into the tool it stopped working. So the last 1/2' pipe I needed to cut with a small hand cutter that took me almost 10 min as it was a tight spot. I have used cordless drills completely submerged and this tool that's made to cut water pipes dies after seeing a bit of water? Curious if it was just a coincidence as I am a huge Milwaukee fan/user and this is pretty much the first time I had a bad tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty slick Tool works awesome ....when water is not involved. If I am pre cutting a bunch of pieces it definitely speeds it up. And tight spaces are a breeze !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool. Want to see similar tool for cutting larger sizes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stay away from any pipe with water in it. This is a great tool as long as you don’t cut any pipe that has water in it. New construction is the ideal job for this tool. Water will make it stop working until it dries out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised. Purchased an hour ago and I'm taking it back. Should have read the 1 star reviews. I run copper linesets and install AC's I cut quite a bit of ⅜ up to ⅞ copper. This tool cuts the ¾ but just spins around ⅜. The tool advertised ⅜ to 1". So maybe they're measuring ID? Anyway, not for HVAC.

IN HVAC we use a lot of 3/8 inch and up to 7/8 inch copper tubing. Will I be able to cut these diameters with this? What is the smallest outside diameter it will cut? What is the largest outside diameter?

Asked by: Honeyman76
Yes it will as I use it mostly for that
