Do any of you guys use this tool? If so do you like it. I allready have quite a few of these compact tools last one i bought was the copper cutter "what a waste of money" thought it be go for renos and removing old copper used it a few times and found out it juust doesnt work well. Leave a ridge hard to get fittinngs on clumbersome and just poorly designed reallyy like most of milwaukees tools got the 12 volt impact and hackzall their not bad anyways... Just dont want to fork out the money if its not a great tool only have half and three quarter heads for my manual and thought maybe the cordless kit that comes with 1" heads would work better... Anyways thanks for reading look forward to your repplies thanks sean
I really haven't had luck it just seems bulky I replaced the new blade with another new blade didn't seem to help much... Maybe il take it to the Milwaukee tool repair guy.. he's only an hour away... I thought it be real handy I was pretty bumed out that it didn't seem to work..
I have the m12 pex expander and a model made by uponor and the m12 is great! Auto rotate and light! But buy the battery expander pack they sell it makes it last a lot longer on a charge and is a good stand.
I've had my copper cutter tool for about two years also, love it and wouldn't trade it for anything else. I watched the video Rick, the man looked to be a newbie with the tool. He was trying to push the tool onto the copper from the side most of the time and spent more time talking than concentrating. You PUSH the tool onto the copper from the front of the tool. He had no idea. I know I could go way faster with mine. I could have got ya easy two to one or more. I timed both of you a number of times. You take on average of 6 seconds to set up and make a cut. The other guy took on average of 3 seconds. He didn't break a sweat, you were working your azz off! LOL,, I think I'll keep my tool thanks.
If your copper cutter tool is taking too long to cut then it most likely has a broken spring inside. It happened to mine. One day it was cutting within a few seconds and the next day it was taking forever. It was my own fault, got it jammed up one day and forced it. Milwaukee was great! Printed out a prepaid sticker from their website, sent off the tool and got it back in less than a week. Repaired under warranty and didn't cost me a dime.
I had a propex tool, the larger one. Used it for about two weeks and hated it and sold it. Now days it's all Viega Pureflow pex so I have no need for the propex.
