  • Replacment Heads

    Hi,

    It seems like I already blew through my cutter head. It wont cut anymore

    Do I have to buy a new tool? Or a new head, if so part number??

    Thank you !

    looking at the catalog page, there are no replacement parts.

    but at $20.00 for the complete new tool, i would say it served its life.

        Not sure I agree with that.

        So how many cuts will it make? I imagine one of the cutters was still working. So now you throw away a tool that still has some use???

        If it wears out in less than a year, you can't rebuild it, and you can't cut double ended pipe...the reasons not to buy are starting to add up for me.

        Like I read in another post...$2 saw blade will do it all...why carry multiple tools? Been using saw blades forever...is cleaning the burrs that big of a deal?

        Glad to see the initiative but I just don't think the design is right yet.

        Look to the general AutoCut...hinged, replaceable wheels, ratchet option...actually if they were thinking they'd design one...LOL

          i haven't taken one apart. but is it possible to swap the 1.25'' with the worn out 1.5'' cutter?

          i've never used the 1.25'' cutter yet.

          not sure if it's swappable, but it's only a few screws

            Saw blades work fine and the deburring isn't such a big issue but for people like me who can't get a straight cut half the time, this thing is awesome. If also makes mess of a mess as compared to a hacksaw and the beveled edge makes slipping nuts and washers on a little easier

              I'm going to buy one of these and keep it with my tool that helps me tie my shoes.

                    mine did less than 100 cuts, probably less than 50, and it's done. how can steel wear out this fast cutting plastic? This needs to be addressed.
