Review for Nerrad Tool Copper Tube Cutters by He@Heating ltd
30th July 2019

Few years back at a trade show I took the plunge and bought one of each 15mm, 22mm & 28mm Pipe slices, cannot say a bad word about them, they are slightly skinnier than the likes of Kopex & monument tools which has come in handy. I have had to replace the cutting wheel on both 15mm & 22mm, again no issues and cutting wheels are fairly priced.

By far the best cutters I've owner, got everything from 10mm to 28mm, very sharp and reliable. Keep them dry and sprayed with wd40 every time I use them. So far haven't changed the wheel blade and I have had them for 2 years now. Great investment.

Review for Nerrad Tool Copper Tube Cutters by London Gas Services
19th December 2018

Big fad about Nerrad cutters about a year ago, they were all the rage, so I bought a pair to see what all the fuss was about. They're ok, still the ones I use most days, I like that they're slimmer than other models which is useful for really tight spaces, but they're also larger circumference than other makes, not so good when you're tight up against a wall. As others have mentioned, factory blade wears out very quickly, with a generic blade replacement, they work well again.

Too early for me to say on lasting quality, but no problems after a few months so far. Very good for tight spaces as thinner than most cutters. Had enough of constantly replacing my Rothenburgers. Happy so far!

Pretty good cutters when they're new, and love the narrow design with good grips around the edges. Was annoyed when the screws that hold the two halves together fell out though, has nobody at Nerrad heard of thread lock?

I brought the set about a year ago and found the 28mm to start spiralling after a few months and also found the cutting wheels to not last that long. Also a bit bulkier than the kopex.

I've had the 22mm one for over a year now. It's very solid and well made. My main problems with it is the width compared to the kopex slices and the painted finish is a bit more difficult to grip when wet.

Had the 15 & 22mm for over a year now, in all honesty I only bought them because they were red. Went through both blades within a week but the replacement blades have lasted since then. I find them far easier to cut through copper pipe than any other cutters I have used in the past Haven't tried any other Nerrad products yet

2nd July 2017

These are great for a very short while. If used on a daily basis there don't last long and at the price they cost they are not worth it. This has been noted by nerad and the cutting wheel is soon to be chanced, I will give the new cutting blade a chance as I still have about 5 slices rolling arou d the van not being used. And the 28mm slice is crap straight out of the packaging, 4 cuts in and start tramming the pipe.

It's built well, but I wouldn't buy another, due to the blade cutting straight, so doesn't go well with plastic pipe as the rubbers don't slide on and the replacement blades costing double the price of other makes.

I have the 15mm and 22mm ones as I received them from a promotion Fernox were running. I think they are good cutters and I am still on my first set of blades. They are easy to see because of their colour but they aren't easiest to turn when your hands are wet. Will see how they last over time.

Hi guys, it's Matt here from Tools2trust. As you know I'm a big fan of Nerrad tools and must say that my love started from these slices! HOWEVER !!!!!! The blades are manufactured in order to give the least possible Burred cut. This means the blades are not as durable as that of monument. However personally I don't mind buying more blades and keeping my cuts perfect every time ! You've got to try them out to make your own mind up however I LOVE them and won't attempt work without them

Question:

When is the new stainless steel blade and cutter coming out.

Asked on 29th August 2017 by Bennetts safe Gas

Answer:

This question does not have any answers.


Question:

Have seen Nerrad getting a bit of stick for their blowtorch recently but wanted to know if their cutters were any good and if anyone goes through the effort of replacing the wheels or just replace the unit? Or are all cutters the same and I am interested in these as they are red and shiny :) cheers boys

Asked on 5th April 2017 by Alpha Heating & Plumbing

Answer:

The cutters are great. They leave hardly any burr in the pipe when finished, cleanest cut off all.
The blades are a lot more brittle than the others so you can't force them on or rag them off on an angle like older versions

Answered on 5th April 2017 by Terry Burgin Plumbing and Heating Engineer

Answer:

I find them good to use, as previously said the blades are said to be brittle but both my 22 and 15 cutter wheels are pretty good after decent use. I'd recommend them.

Answered on 5th April 2017 by Modern Home Plumbing

Answer:

I've had mine for 6 months, used and abused daily cutting painted copper. Still working great no blade issues. Even cuts old 3/4 copper fine. Worth the money definitely. Only issue my 15mm did track a few times but this was as the screws had worked lose easily fixed.

Answer:

Bought a 22mm and 15mm and no longer us them. Blades chip very easily and the issue was blamed on "user error".

Now bought some monument ones and seam decent -British made aswell!

Hi I have used every cutter I think on the market over the years Rothenberger, Kopex, Nerrad but still go back to monument.
