Milwaukee® Introduces ProPEX®/Tubing Cutter with All Metal Design

        MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its Hand Tool offering with the introduction of the new ProPEX®/Tubing Cutter. Featuring an exclusive, replaceable double- ground steel blade and an all metal core, the new tool delivers welcome innovation, as well as unmatched durability and tool life to the tubing cutter category.

        “Until now, manual ProPEX® and Tubing Cutters were typically modified by the end user to strengthen the handles,” says Tim Albrecht, Director of Product Marketing- Hand Tools for Milwaukee Tool Corporation.  “The new Milwaukee ProPEX®/Tubing Cutter is virtually indestructible due to its all metal design.  The cutter also features an exclusive design that allows the user to replace the blade and further increase the life of the tool.”

        Designed with a re-work groove to correct mistakes quickly and safely, users are able to strip ProPEX® couplings easily to reuse the brass fittings. The new tool also features an easy to use, one-handed locking mechanism for improved tool safety and V-shaped blades for quick, straight cuts.

        Backed by Milwaukee’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, the Milwaukee ProPEX®/Tubing Cutter features rust protection to increase tool life and reduce corrosion. Durable rubber grips add comfort and help protect the tool.

        Dedicated to delivering advanced solutions to increase productivity, Milwaukee’s Hand Tool category will continue to grow and offer innovative products.
