Ratcheting PVC cutter
Does anyone know if anyone makes a ratcheting 3 inch PVC cutter,I have a 2 inch cutter that I got at Home Depot. Or maybe something similar that makes nice neat cuts without the mess of a saw saw.

What's a saw saw?Truth is still truth, even if no one believes it. A lie is still a lie, even if everyone believes it.

Milwaulkee was supposed to be coming out with an 18v operated 4" pvc cutter. I would look into that if you do that much of it.Gotta have the right tool for the job!

I'll check on that,it's not that I do a great deal of it. But the better the cut is,the pipe fits into the fitting easier and deeper,gives me peace of mind that my pipe won't fall apart.

Use the string technique to start a kerf in the pipe then use saw and follow kerf. You can also slip a coupling over the pipe to your mark then use it as a saw guide.

I've seen a plumber use a large tubing cutter, not sure if it was a special pvc one or not. That could be another option.
My 2"ratcheting cutter dosent cut straight either. I have had a few rigid ratcheting ones for up to 1 or 1 1/2 pipe and the blade always broke after a dozed cuts on schedule 40. So I stopped buying them. I found a brand I never heard of in a ceiling a year ago and it had been working great ever sence.
