    Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® PVC Pipe Cutter:

    The ratchet cutting mechanism is a great idea for bigger pvc pipe.
    The Ace hardware cutter blade twists when cutting 1" PVC pipe. This makes an angled cut.
    If you care about the lack of squareness of the cut, buy the BrassCraft product with a thicker blade.

    Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® PVC Pipe Cutter:

    I used this 1-5/8" cutter to install my irrigation system this past summer. 300' of 1-1/2" PVC pipe, 1200' of 1" PVC pipe, 400' of funny pipe, 100' of drip pipe, 9 zones, 47 sprinkler heads, 45 bubblers, 30 drips... You get the picture - a fairly extensive system with lots of cutting. This cutter worked great for all the 1" PVC, funny pipe and drip pipe. The only thing it didn't do was the 1-1/2" PVC since outside diameter is > 1-5/8". The only care that I had to take was cutting the 1" PVC. When brand new the blade is sharp enough that technique doesn't matter much. However, after a little use (and probably slight dulling of the blade) technique becomes a little more important. This may have been due to using SDR21 PVC since it's thinner-walled than SCH40 and therefore easier to crush/bend the pipe if you just ratchet through it quickly. However, if just as you start cutting you rock it back and forth a couple times to score the pipe slightly it cuts through like butter without crushing the pipe. This cutter worked great for me but I rated it a notch lower for grip -- a smooth metal handle which was comfortable to use but could slip with wet hands. I have no hesitation recommending this pipe cutter for extensive homeowner projects like mine. If I were a professional installer that did this every day, then I might look for a professional level tool.

      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® PVC Pipe Cutter:

      I am using my second cutter due to blade broke on first unit to change out six entire zones of sprnkler system in my yard. I replaced 1/2 inch PVC pipe with 3/4 and 1 inch to give me more pressure and coverage. The 1/2 inch lasted 30 years but required a lot of maintenance and modifying trying to get pressure.

      Is it possible to get new replacement blades?

      This cutter works well even with schedule 60 PVC, which is heavier wall than 40.
