The MILWAUKEE M12 Copper Tubing Cutter is the industry’s first cordless unit, cutting up to 10X faster than conventional tubing cutters. Milwaukee engineered this versatile copper tubing cutter for plumbers, mechanical contractors, and remodelers that runs at 500 RPM for unmatched cutting speed. The M12 Battery (sold separately) and ultra-efficient gearing allow users to make up to 200 cuts on a single charge. The patent-pending cutting mechanism automatically adjusts diameter to cut Type K, L, and M copper pipes from 3/8” to 1” (OD from ½” to 1-1/8”). The unique rotating cutting head cuts installed copper piping with as little as 1-1/2” clearance, and the lightweight, the inline design provides users with a longer reach and reduces wrist strain when working in confined spaces. A built-in LED light illuminates the cutting surface. The electronic overload protection and unibody construction provide maximum durability. An onboard, real-time battery fuel gauge helps users monitor the charge precisely, so there’s less downtime on the job.

I wish it was easier to replace the blades. I have purchased 3 of these.
Love this tool. I hate to use a regular cutter anymore.
It makes cutting copper pipes so easy. I used the tool for 3/8 and 1/2″ Cutting in a very small projects. It cuts in seconds without any difficulties. If you do copper pipe soldering, this tool is a must for saving time and headaches. I wish there was this tool years ago. The storage case is a plus for tool, battery and charger safe keeping.
First day i got it i put a half inch copper stick in there, it did not work i keep holding it and pushing it in and nothing no cut, it just kept sliding around the pipe… i was really bummed and i was so exsited to show it off to my co workers. Lol that was a laugh. Then the next day rolls around i bust them out again and try messing with it, i let it click and did not jam it all the way to the back and i let it cut! And bam i made my first cut! I was so happy. Not i can take over 20 stick of 24foot copper brake them down and get them all pre preped to solder in about 4hours. Aka soldering aswell as cutting and prep. Vary handy tool! Now milwaukee need to make somthing so we can easly sand the tips of the copper aka vibration sander tool thingy that would def help out a lot.
I am a seasoned HVAC tech , residential and light commercial, Bought this yesterday thinking that it would be good to cut copper Tubing for repairs, it does the job mostly well on 1/2” to 1” , here are complaints, will not cut 3/8 OD HVAC copper at all, which is 50% of my use for it, the rest of everything it cut in a timely manner but left filings inside the copper tube that in the application being used could damage internal components of the a/c , If you’re using it for plumbing I can see it being a benefit, going to keep it because it’ll come in handy elsewhere just not sure if Im gonna get the intended use That I originally purchased it for
Nice tool. This one doesn’t run quite as smooth as some of the others I’ve used. All in all a good time saver
Great fast tool. Gets close to the wall. Multiple cuts in less than a minute.
Excellent tool. If you are in a trade that your prone to be cutting copper all day long these are a wrist saver and a game changer. Well worth the $100.
This tool is an awesome tool it is so good that I can’t do without it so I went and bought another one just in case it gets wet that is the only downfall
Exactly what I needed!
Only way to cut
Love this thing … takes a little to get used to it but it’s great
It is a very useful and time saving tool. 100% recommend.
I am an HVAC Tech use this tool daily dont know why there are negative reviews as far the tool and uneven cuts i blame that more so on operator error. I havent had any issues with mine.
Easy to use! This tool saves you a lot of time.
I’m using this more than I thought I would. Gets into tight spaces and cuts clean. Took a little bit of getting used to because if it doesn’t lock squarely onto pipe it will cut crooked or not cut st all.
This is by far one of the best pipe cutting tools out there. This tool works great for those hard to reach pipes up in floor joist bays, behind other pipes or anywhere you can fit it. I use mine all the time, I barely ever pull out any rigid cutter anymore. I keep some spare wheels and extra charged batteries ready at all times. I had one tool fail, due to a lot of water getting inside. Cutting pipes with a little water is fine, I just shake the water out and let it dry and it continues to work just fine. 10 out 10 I’d recommend, get a 4 out of 5 due to the fact its not water proof!!!!
