    Anyone who uses any pipe other than sch 40 or sch 80 is going to have trouble with clippers, no matter what brand or how sharp they are.

    if you want to cut plastic pipe and not have to deburr it, use poly :D

    Poly and small diameter class don't last in our soils. I replace/repair with sched 40, regardless.:D

    And while we are on the subject of pipe cutters.

    A friend of mine gave me a set of MCC cutters that he saw at the suppliers. Brand new, out of the box.

    I may hit him the next time i see him. If the pair i used yesterday were representitive of the product line, i will use a string before i use another pair.

    I seldom badmouth products, the pair i have deserve it.

    I like the Wheeler cutters, and the blades aren't exclusive to them, since all the knockoff cutters are based on the Wheeler design.

    Plain old Victor pipe cutters. This is what I've been using since I was 8 years old when my dad taught me how to install irrigation. They work better than any other pipe cutter in my opinion.

    I still have some Victor cutters, and I think their action is improved over the original Wheelers, but suppliers don't always stock them, or the parts, and the blades have shown some brittleness.

    I have a bunch of victor cutters. Repair parts and spare blades too.

    Hey Dan, If you started in irrigation when you were 8, where did you work before?
