  • Pex pipe cutters Ratcheting or standered ?

    I`m doing a large job in pex and I`m not sure which cutters to get?Anybody have any experience with the two of these? I cant decide on the ratcheting ones over the standered ones.

    Thoughts?

    Both types will work okay. I prefer the non ratchening type like Christy and Pasco sells. I have found they give a more consistant squarer cut also. You just clamp over the tubing and in one action squeaze and rotate the cutter at the same time and your done! In a pinch I will use a pvc ratcheting cutter also if its more handy at the time.

      For PEX pipe, I like the non-ratcheting type. It's a lot faster, and PEX isn't that hard to cut.

        What are the ratcheting cutters like to cut through inch and a half abs? Is it just faster to use a hacksaw?

          I've never used a ratchet cutter on abs, but I think that it would tend to egg shape the pipe instead of make a clean cut like pvc. I just use a plastic saw most of the time. Most track guys would use a ratcheting wheel cutter.
