The RIDGID PTEC Cutter is the first cutter of its kind that provides the hassle-free ability to execute a clean, fast, and straight cut on thin-wall plastic tube. This versatile cutter can be used on Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), and Thin-Walled PVC tubes.

Features

  • Clean, Automatic Deburring - The cut produced by this cutter results in only a fine strand of plastic, as opposed to the fuzz created around the cut of a hacksaw. No need for a second tool to deburr, this cutter automatically deburrs in parallel to cutting action.
  • Automatic Beveling - Allows for immediate, easy joining to other sink drain pieces.
  • Open Bore Design - Allows cutting of double-flanged plastic drain pipe.
  • PTEC 3000 - Single-flanged 1 1/4"; Double-flanged 1 1/2"
  • PTEC 5000 - Double-flanged 50mm

Rated 3 out of 5 by Can't find Replacement Blades Great tool. However, I have owned mine for close to 2 years and have yet been able to buy replacement blades. December 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool! This saves time from cutting with a saw and no big mess. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to use and does a clean and accurate cut I bought this product because I was making very sloppy cuts in thin wall pvc drain pipe using a saw blade. With this tool, the cuts are always square and true with no burrs. It is also a lot easier and faster than using a saw blade. This tool makes drain pipe assembly quick and easy as well as very precise. I also like that fact that it handles both 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 inch pipe so I can get perfect cut in both pipe sizes with one tool. November 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by New design an improvement I waited to buy one of these because I use a lot of double tailpieces, which it wouldn't work on. A few months back I saw it is now available with an open design for 1 1/2". I bought one and love it. A great time saver. Now it just needs to have the change made on the 1 1/4" side.

Product Q&A

I have the original PTEC 3000 tool that does not have an open end for the 1 and 1/2" pipe. Frequently the cutter will not cut all the way through thin wall plastic tubing no matter how many revolutions I make. Was the design change made to correct this problem or is the cutter dull? If so, am I entitled to a free replacement tool under your lifetime warranty? I am not a professional plumber, and this tool is infrequently used in my part time handyman business. The tool was purchased from the Home Depot. Thanks
