What is sub-surface irrigation and How to Install it
Jun 1st 2023
I use this all the time for cutting main line and micro tubing. Best cutting tool for these purposes I've ever had. As for the punching function, I had the same issue another reviewer mentions--it sometimes would punch a hole through the other side, too! And then the spring broke and so now I can't punch at all. (Could not see an easy way to fix it myself.) But it is a neat cutting tool.
I have arthritis in both of my thumbs and no hand strength. Before I found this tool, I had to make sure one of my sons was available to help me work on my irrigation system. Love, love, love this tool!!
I will admit I am new to drip irrigation and installing it for the first time. The first time I tested the system, there were three places where I punched a hole for the 1/4" connectors, and it went clear through and punched through to the other side. What a pain to fix! Also this tool is dangerous. If it slips while you're using it, you may find yourself gripping the sharp edge of the cutting tool. I have done it, thank goodness I had gloves on. Poor design.
I've had my Punch N' Cut for some years now, and given some to others, too. The best multi-tool for drip I've tried. I've ordered a second one for me, because I'm tired of traipsing 200' from one garden to another to retrieve it. Which brings us to durable-- mine's spent hundreds of hours lying in the sun and seems as strong as ever. I hope the new ones are made with the same great plastic.
Works great for punching holes and inserting barbs in one tool. The cutter works great for 1/2" poly main line but not so well for 1/4" tubing. I got better results on the 1/4" tubing with my wire cutters
Punch N' Cut is the most important tool you want when working with drip supplies. After a couple of years beating the poor thing to death, I am on my second one. It prevents frustration, saves time and wear and tear on your hands.
I find the Punch N' Cut to really be a versatile tool for my drip irrigation system. It's handy to be able to punch holes, cut tubing and insert my emitters all with the same tool.
The Punch N' Cut is the most versatile tool available and is a favorite among landscapers and commercial growers. This lightweight all-purpose tool is a necessary alternative to those frustrating days of keeping track of multiple tools!
The Punch N' Cut is a must have for a drip irrigation system. In addition to punching holes, it also cuts poly drip tubing and inserts transfer barbs and most emitters. Color may vary.
For 5/8" Tape fittings the Adjustable Punch (PUADJ) works best.
The Punch N' Cut Tool has three major uses:
