Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity
Monument Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter enables 8-22 mm diameter copper and thicker walled plastic pipes such as those used in Central heating to be cut automatically once it has been sized and tightened.
Thin walled plastic pipes may collapse too easily unless an internal support is given to pipes. After tightening no further adjustment or feeding of the wheel into the tube is required.
Soft copper can also be cut without crushing if the tool is used like a conventional Cutter by feeding the wheel into the tube.
Ideal for use in confined spaces.
Capacity 8 to 22mm.
Replacement wheel number MON301.

Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by Fitzgerald Electrical & Plumbing Solutions2nd February 2022
Nice tool on first impressions you would think it would be cheap as it is plastic looking but it is strong and well made very robust, it is easy to use and handy to have as it cuts various size pipe with just one tool, it gives a nice clean cut and the bright colour makes it easy to see and not get left behind on site
Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by Penfould Heating & Renewables Ltd6th July 2021
Unfortunately I'm not a fan of this cutter. I have it on test from TTTC but I find it a bit awkward, it doesn't cut very well and it's a bit clumsy to adjust from size to size. It would be a good addition to a handy man's tool kit or a builder that does some of their own rip out work but for a plumbing and heating professional, I find it a much better option to have individual cutters
Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by Ian Winnard Heating & Plumbing13th June 2021
Great cutter if you don’t want to carry lots of cutters with you I mainly use for smaller sizes, gives you a choice. Quality is good as expected from monument. I’m normative a massive fan of twist and cut. Does what says on the tin
Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by SAFGas Ltd1st October 2019
When going into a confined space for example & not sure of your pipe size this is just perfect.
Seems to cut the pipe a lot quicker the previous adjustable cutters I've used for sure.
It would be good if they did a larger size one for 28 & 32 mm too

Arguably the best pipe slices going. Made in Britain. Easy to use and long lasting. The only brand I buy
Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by Crawley HVAC Services23rd May 2018
£14 is what I paid for this little cutter, if you fit fires then this is a must for cutting the 8mm restrictor tube, great tool, great price.
Review for Monument 300M Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter 8-22mm Capacity by O'Brien Property Maintenance20th March 2018
Couldn’t get on with this cutter as I found the cut would spiral at time unless I over tightened the wheel and sometimes causing damage to the pipe.

Hi guys, and welcome back to another review from Tool Talk. Thanks to Tool Talk for sending me another product, again from Monument, to try. This time we've got the Monument Semi-Auto Pipe Cutter. This product cuts from 8 millimetres to 22 millimetres. Again, all Monument products are made in the UK. That means that they're good controlled products.
Let's go ahead and try, I've got a piece of 15mm copper pipe here. We'll go ahead and we'll adjust it back. We'll insert the pipe, like that. Then we'll just tighten up the adjusting screw at the back. Once we've adjusted the screw, get it to our mark that we're trying to cut. Then we tighten it, and then we just start to rotate the cutter round.
There we have it. There we go. We have a nice clean cut on the end of our copper, as you'd expect from any pipe slice. As I said, that was a 15mm piece of copper. It didn't take too long, wasn't too bad. Maybe slightly slower than the pipe slicers I'm normally used to using. I would normally use one for each specific size of pipe. If it was a 15mm copper pipe, I would use a 15mm pipe slice, and obviously 22 or 28, you'd use the relevant size for that.
I can see the advantages of having one product that does a range of sizes, from 8 to 22 millimetre. I think from an installer's point of view, I still think I would quite like to use my individual cutters and pipe slice. The quality's there with it. I mean, it's a good quality product, as always.
I don't know whether it's just because of what you're used to, or maybe the way we work with it. Sometimes we don't always mark a piece of copper pipe. We would just mark it with our finger, and we'd hold it and pop the slice on, and cut it from there. But I'm just trying to do that as we speak, to see. You can do it, but that's maybe slightly more awkward. As I said, I think it maybe took slightly longer to cut. I'll just do it again, to see. Maybe it just needs to be slightly tighter this time. Let me try that, see if that makes it any quicker.
Yeah, maybe that was slightly quicker this time, because it was maybe slightly tighter. Maybe that was just my way of using it. I still quite like the idea on a pipe slicer, where you have no adjustment to make. You just snap it on, and just turn. As I said, maybe this for somebody who's not doing an awful lot of pipe fitting. If they're just using pipe cutters occasionally, this may be a product to save having multiple products in your box.
I don't know whether I would actually physically use it. I mean, I have used this quite a bit. But having used it over a period of time, I don't know whether I would go ahead and continue using it, or go back to using my individual pipe slicers. Maybe that's just me. But I mean, you can see, I'm looking at it here. It's well made. I don't know whether you can see in there. That's very difficult to see. But it's actually made of metal in there. It's not just all plastic. You've got the metal screw in there, and there's also a metal body in there as well.
Again, it's a solid, robust design. Obviously it's designed to last. Being Monument, again, it's a good product. Yeah, a good product again from Monument. I'd say give it a try and see how you get on with it. Thanks.
What's happening? So another quick little review on some more stuff I've just been given to have a try out on. A couple of different bits this time, stuff that I don't really use, to be fair. First thing is the semi-automatic Monument pipe cutter, pipe slice, whatever you want to call it. To be fair, it's actually pretty good. For the amount of times I've used it, or when I've needed it, it's a lot better than my old one that I used to have.
So you can sort of see the size difference, that's all rusted to **** as well, which that seems a lot better of a mechanism for turning. So getting a good finger and thumb on that, and it turns quite well. It turns sort of like an automatic one really, a lot better anyway. So yeah, something I don't really use, I have liked using it. So I think if it was a cutter that you opted for, the semi-automatic, then I'd say it's definitely the one. Yeah, so yeah, good bit of kit, good first bit of kit.
Hi, this is John from JPC plumbing and heating, and I'm here to do another Tool Talk review on the Monument semi-automatic pipe cutter. This is another useful pipe cutter from Monument. It cuts pipe from 8mm to 22mm in diameter and it has a nice semi-automatic function. That means once you tighten this knob down onto the pipe, there's no need to continue tightening it whilst doing your pipe cutting procedure. It'll just gradually put pressure onto the pipe until it is closed. For example, you get the pipe, place it into the jaws, and then once it's there do 1 to 2 extra turns. And then turn in any direction and hey presto, couple of turns and the pipe is cut. Typical pipe slice cut. Yeah, it's very good.
Very useful piece of kit to put in your toolbox. Gives you the option to save you having to have lots of pipe slicers around. Build quality, typical monument standard. Feels like it's going to last, doesn't feel flimsy or anything like that. Makes a good cut. Definitely a good addition to the toolbox. So I'd like to thank Tool Talk for the opportunity to review this pipe cutter and I'll see you on the next one.
Hi there, it's Daniel from S.A.S Heating doing a Tool Talk review on the Monument Tools semi-automatic pipe slice. Quite a good little pipe slice. Got a nice big wheel hand thing, cuts up to 22mm copper, I'll show you a bit of 15mm. Nice and easy. In it goes. Wheel up. Pretty good. A little bit more. And once more.
There we have it. Nice clear cut, no burring. Nice and rounded off. Perfect to go straight into a fitting. Nice yellow colour. Helps find it in the van. Like I said, this wheel, nice and easy. Nice and smooth turning and fits nicely in hand when you're cutting. It's a good bit of kit. Thanks Tool Talk.
Hi guys, Black Country Al here from Fitzgerald Electrical Plumbing Solutions. Just testing out this Monument Autocut been sent by Tool Talk. I'm just going to show you, I'm just cutting up some copper pipe for scrap really, I'm just chopping up bits of it, so I thought I'd give you a quick demo using it on this. What you do is you just tighten down to your pipe really tight, and then rotate. Works on 8mm to 22mm pipe. So, one cutter. That's a nice clean cut, perfect. Like I said, 8mm to 22mm pipe, so just one cutter. I've started using it when I'm doing press-fit, so I keep it in my press-fit kit, only need one cutter that way for different pipe. And like I said, it works on 15, 22, right down to 8mm.
So, it's perfect really for keeping it in your toolkit for working on various pipes, and like I said, gives you a nice clean, straight cut. Just deburr that obviously if you're using push-fit, or like I said, I use it on press-fit, but it gives you a nice clean, straight cut. Perfect. Nice tool, well made. It's quite strong and robust. It's plastic, so it's lightweight. It's not as heavy as a big 28 or 22mm cutter, but it's strong. You wouldn't think it'd be that strong, but it is. It's quite strong and it's stiff, well made. Blades can be changed, just a few screws on the back there, take the blade out to change it. Good bit of kit, well worth getting. Especially with the range that it can cut on. All good.
Hi there. My name's Andrew from ATR plumbing. And today I'm reviewing the monument 300m copper pipe cutter. Cuts between eight and 22 mm copper. It's a good product as it will cut various sizes. So you don't have to carry the dedicated pipe slices. It cuts fairly easy. You just screw it, tighten the wheel onto the pipe and then turn. It should have an arrow to say you turn towards the rollers like you do with all pipe slices. It would benefit from that. It's quite a bulky item. So if you were using that under a bath or something or under a cupboard, it would be quite awkward to get in, would be easier with a pipe slice for the size.
It's made of plastic, the body and the wheels made of plastic. I don't know how sturdy it would be over time. And also the mechanism inside, which tightens and loosens, it's quite exposed. So being a plumber, that in my tool bag, it would get quite dirty and it might start being awkward to move after a while. So I think it could be improved this product, probably not something I would have bought off the shelf, if I'm honest. So that's my review. Thank you.
Hi, I'm Sean from Gas Patrol and today we're doing a review for Tool Talk on the Monument Semi-Automatic Pipe Cutter. This pipe cutter will cut from eight millimetre to 22 millimetre pipe and they're great if you want to save space in your tool box, and they're actually really good cutters. To use them, place your pipe inside, and tighten up to the desired size you require, like so. Couple of gentle turns so you can feel it grab and then few turns. You might need to give it a little nip up if you haven't tightened it enough. And then, there's the pipe cuts. Nice, very clean cuts, this is a 15 millimetre pipe.
Let's try it on a smaller size, here we have 10 millimetre pipe. Again, sizing it up, a couple of turns. There we have it. Again, a nice, very clean cut. Overall, it's a very, very good cutter. It would be perfect for the DIYer or if you have a bit of space to actually cut pipes. If you're close to a wall, you're probably going to need a pipe slice, the Monument Pipe Slice, you can get it nice and tight. But overall, It's absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend. Thanks again, guys.
Hi. This is Dave for Expert Trades, from DCB Plumbing & Heating. Today I want to talk to you about this little contraption. It is a Monument adjustable pipe slice. I found this extremely useful in many, many situations. In one in particular.
To start off, it goes everywhere from your 22 mil all the way down to your ridiculously small. You just spin the wheel clockwise for closed as in everything else. Close her up and then obviously you can have a piece of 8 mil and have the exact same situation. Holds it on nice, easy. Very easy to use.
Actually the 8 mil is the reason I really wanted to do the tutorial with you today, because I'm pretty sure if you've ever worked with small, bendable pipe like 8 mil, 10 mil, possibly even 12 mil, cutting a short piece with your hand to try and get a clean edge, to possibly put a valve on. When you're putting a valve on, obviously the olive is quite tight. You cut it wrong or it's a little bit bent because you've been handling it all the time. Forget all that. This is the tool that will solve every single one of those problems, without a shadow of a doubt.
So very simple. Very, very simple. You just hold it in place, get a little bit closer in. Hold it in place, slide it in, close it up nice and tight. Not too tight. Then just wheel it like you would a normal. Every now and again obviously you do have to tighten her up a little bit, as you're doing it. You know, it does take 30 seconds to do it. Not a problem, and there we go. That's it. Maybe a little bit longer than a normal pipe slice, but I don't even know if you can buy an 8 mil pipe slice.
So just to prove a little bit of the differences, I just cut this one in the van just to cut a short piece off of a big reel that I had. I used me hacksaw, struggled because I was cutting a small piece off, and this is genuine. That is the piece that I cut off. That is the piece that I just cut this second for you guys. When you're trying to get an olive obviously on that rounded shaft there, I mean it's just superb to work with. You don't have to worry about kinking it, you don't have to worry about the burr, you don't have to worry about any of that. It's just plain, simple, easy.
Genuinely guys, ask for Monument. It's just such a superb tool. Everything I've had that's Monument so far has been outstanding. The olive pullers and everything. You know, they're just second to none, to be honest. They're absolutely superb.
So there it is again. The adjustable pipe slice. Just wheel her in, wheel her out. Whatever size of pipe you're looking for. Dead easy, like a normal pipe slice but adjustable. Not big, not too chunky. Ask for Monument. Take care, guys.
