    looks like a home owner tool. i think if i had to use it every day it would piss me off because its big and bulky.

    Looks like a Swiss Army Knife for irrigation. Looks great on paper but from a practical use standpoint I would not buy it.

    JUNK but I would buy it if it had a bottle opener.

    Thanks for the replies. I too thought it looked bulky and amateurish.

    Ditto...probably would break first time after throwing it on the concrete in frustration.

    It would sell well in Home Depot.

    Personally, I prefer separate tools that each do a single task well over a single tool that does a lot of tasks poorly.

    i thought it was a great 'tool' for the service vehicle. sometimes techs leave tools at one job and do not know until they need them again. or maybe they are working far away from the truck and they discover they need crimpers or poly cutters or something to cut holes for drip emitters...whatever. we bought 4 pairs (one for each service truck) and if they save a few trips to the truck, add up the time and you will be ahead of the game. or you could just give them to your laborers and techs and let them try them out for a day.

    we just try to keep an open mind.
