    So i bought my father a Milwaukee rechargeable heated jacket for christmas... blood thiner is a wonderfully thing in the winter apparently. I of course take it out to charge it before giving it, inside the box is a flyer for their other tools.. and now I have cutter envy.

    Not bad. How long will the blade last and is it easy to change out? Sure would save on the sore hands when cutting SCH40.

    Wow. I wonder how well it does once the blade gets dull. Seems like it would crush and crack the sch. 40 pipe, or pinch and tear the flexible pipe. I also wonder about dirt and sand getting inside the body out in real world situations if it were on a sprinkler install crew. Also the durability of workers throwing it around and dropping in dirt and/or mud. But I know Milwaukee makes some durable tools. Neat tool, let us know how it works.

    Looks great, but it also looks like it is for cutting clean pipe in clean situations. Probably a good tool for plumbers, but I can see my guys making nuts and bolts out of this thing quickly.

    It's a common problem when shovel monkeys get their hands on complicated tools. Did you know that the first Surefire pushbutton-ignition blowtorches carried a lifetime warranty? Then the sprinkler guys got hold of them.

    Tell me about that rechargeable battery coat? I may get a few to rent out to skiers.

    I like it, much like the Rigid I posted about earlier. I also agree, that any tool put in the hands of an employee (including a service truck) will be trash history or disappear shortly. :hammerhead:

    One problem with a tool like that, is if it's fast enough and powerful enough to be a time saver, it can also lop off the odd finger or two.

    Yeah if you're a lawn guy.
