Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight quarters This is a great cutter for tight spaces. Offset rotating device for increasing the cut works very well. Comes with additional cutting wheel attached to the device. Good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I love Ridgid tools. I have used your cutters for 30 years doing plumbing. Tools are very well made. Only time I have to buy a new one is when I lost one. I still have one when I started doing plumbing 30 yrs ago.
