Original Press Release:

General’s New AutoCutPL® Quickly, Cleanly & Easily Cuts Plastic Tubing!

The new AutoCutPL® plastic tubing cutter from General Pipe Cleaners offers a fast, easy way to cut PEX and CPVC-CTS plastic tubing.

Compact and convenient, the AutoCutPL quickly produces clean, uncrushed, square cuts – with less effort. And it fits in the palm of your hand! Great for use in tight spaces, the AutoCutPL lets you cut plastic tubing with less than one inch of clearance.

Just close the gate over the tube and rotate the AutoCutPL in the direction of the arrows as you squeeze the gate closed. Easier to use than conventional plastic tubing cutters, it cuts plastic tubing in as little as one rotation.

Get hundreds of cuts with accuracy and ease. The blade is easily replaceable when the time comes. And the handy blade guard protects the blade – and your fingers – from workplace and toolbox damage.

AutoCutPL comes in three sizes - 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1” - for PEX and CPVC-CTS tubing.

AutoCutPL for plastic tubing joins General’s popular AutoCut® copper tubing cutter – also available in 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” sizes. It’s compact, quicker, and more convenient than using conventional copper tubing cutters.
