Should be labeled DWV Foam Core Shear
Absolutely great as a DWV shear. But lacks the power to cut 2” PVC or CPVC especially sch 80 2” clutch breaks loose soon after cut is started. Nevertheless have been using the tool for 2 years and as longs as it used on DWV Foam Core it works great and I have had no other issues with the tool. Which they made one for up to 4”

I will always have one
I am a swimming pool repairman in the phoenix area. When I had shoulder surgery (and could not saw for awhile) I went looking for a easier way to cut pipe and found this gem. It makes my job easier and I will always have one in my tool bag. I cut pipe from 3/4 to 2" schedule 40, 80 and cpvc effortlessly. All my subs are jealous when I pull it out and remind me of upcoming birthdays and holidays. only downside is cutting older pipe (tends to shatter even with fresh oiled blade) but I can deal with that. After countless cuts (over 8 years) I now need a new blade. great tool!!

Only for pros
My counterpart made fun of me... but not for long... This shear makes quick work of pvc and cuts square. I had given him a ridged ratcheting pvc shear which cost almost s much as this tool and he constantly has to change the blade. I had used this tool for hundreds of cuts and had not hit anything but pvc with the blade until one day the jet ex nozzle on my jetter got stuck and we had to jack hammer the floor up. I cut the 2" pvc and the blade landed right on the brass nozzle and bent it a bit. I ordered a new blade because I thought this one was don't, but after I ran it through my kitchen sharpener it is still going strong nd the new one is still in the packaging. Because of the safety lock and forward and reverse switch it could be challenging I suppose if you are a mentally incompetent, but this is a professional tool, soo I am assuming Milwaukee figured they would make it capable as such. AWESOME tool, as is the Airsnake, as long as you are not a total dumba$$.

Not very heavy duty!!!
At first I thought this shear was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, I soon had buyers remorse. It cut 1 1/2” PEX pipe and smaller with ease. 2” sch 40 PVC, no problem! Then I started a job with various sizes of sch 80 PVC. Can’t say I was impressed. It did not like 2” at all. I would have to make multiple attempts while rotating pipe before it would make it all the through. Faster to just grab a hand saw. Another thing is I never saw it cut a truly square cut on anything. Especially the small stuff. If your plumbing anything other then residential DWV I’d look somewhere else. One other thing, it does not like any moisture at all. Used it cutting into existing lines and even cleaned it afterward. The next day it was rusted solid. Had to tear completely apart and clean. Just not a very heavy duty tool. Very disappointing. Only Milwaukee tool I’ve ever not recommended.

Great pvc cutter
This tool works great for repairing damaged plumbing. It takes some use to get familiar with the switch operation but it saves wear and tear on my old hands.
Good product.

I use this almost every day
I repair hot tubs for a living and this cutter is priceless for me, cuts everything I need even in freezing temps.

For those complaining about it not cutting, try a little WD-40 on the blade before you cut as it makes for much better and faster cuts.

Would this work for pruning small tree branches? One of the cordless makers should make one for such a purpose.
Bbrown on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I highly recommend not using this tool to cut anything but the specified plastic or rubber!!! There are much better tools to cut branches or limbs, e.g. the Milwaukee M12 Fuel Hackzall or Fuel M18 Hackzall paired with a Diablo 6”, 9” or 12” pruning blade, provide unbelievable performance. I’ve cut 1/4” to 1.5’ branches with the Fuel Hackzalls and a 12” Diablo pruning blade.
