Best / Favorite Sch 200 PVC Cutter

I cannot seem to find a Sch 200 PCV cutter that will not leave a "lip" around the outside of the pipe.

Do you mind sharing your favorites?

Thanks,

Mex

Use sch 40 M&M. You'll have a more harmonious outcome.

Jim,

Most of my work is maintenance and repair........so the Sch 200 is existing.

I do de-burr critical joints.....I just do not like having to de-burr every joint.


Thanks / Regards,

Mex

M&M if you have set parameters then you have little choice. Deburring is about your only choice and i would suggest a conical deburring tool or a swivel knife, both can be had at your supplier.

I use a PlumbPro to cut mine, it leaves a small lip sometimes but not much. The trick is to have a sharp blade but keeping it sharp is a trick since it's in the dirt all the time.

I use a widow-maker (cordless recip saw) followed with either a fingernail or utility knife to clean up the ends..

TRIED EVERY CUTTER OUT THERE.....

We have stuck with for years the,

WHEELER-REX 5290 Cuts 1/2" through 1.25" pvc

You can get replacement blades for them also.

Theyre kinda pricey but work well.

Koster__Irrigation / Thanks for your reply. The Wheeler Rex-5290 is what I am using for Schedule 40. What cutter have you found best for Schedule 200?

Thanks !

Mex

Alright I'll be the one to say it

It's called

Class 200

The most common pipes you'll see for irrigation is Class 160, Class 200, Schedule 40, Schedule 80, Poly 100 psi and poly 160 psi. Older systems are Galvi.
