I have 2 Ridgid #150 cutters that I use a LOT. 1 is in my always-with-me hand tool bag and the other is in my soldering kit. I also have a #15 in my soldering kit. When I am doing a lot of soldering 1/2"-3/4" copper, I use the #15.
The reason I have the #150 in my hand tool bag is that it can cut up to 1.5" tubular (which I do a lot) as well as make smaller cuts. I use and abuse it and it has never failed me.
I also have a 151 and 152 that I use for bigger pipe. I use the 151 for 1"-1.5" copper. I have the plastic wheel for the 152 that I swap out if I need to make a precision cut on PVC and have space to spin it.
