Milwaukee Introduces Industry’s First Adaptable Pipe Wrench

Milwaukee Pipe WrenchMILWAUKEE, Wis. — Milwaukee Tool recently introduced – to both plumbing and HVAC professionals – the new Cheater Pipe Wrench, the first adaptable pipe wrench in the industry. Through its new-to-world, 3-length adaptable design, the Cheater gives users ultimate versatility on jobs that previously required multiple sizes of traditional pipe wrenches. The Cheater is joined by a full line-up of entirely new steel and aluminum pipe wrenches.

The Cheater comes with two interchangeable handles which allow it to operate in three lengths; 10-inch length for access in tight spaces; 18-inch length for general purpose use and 24-inch length for additional reach and maximum leverage. The reduced weight of the Cheater in 24-inch mode, when compared to like-sized competitive Aluminum and Steel traditional pipe wrenches, puts less strain on the user and maximizes productivity.

Due to its Overbite Jaw with additional teeth, the Cheater delivers the largest grip surface, keeping the material centered in the jaws even in challenging pipe and fitting configurations. The Cheater features the slim jaw profile of a traditional 14-inch pipe wrench, and the jaw capacity of a traditional 18-inch wrench.

The Cheater also features the industry’s first dual coil spring design, located in the body of the wrench, maximizing its durability and longer tool life. An ergonomic handle design ensures a more comfortable fit in the hand even during heavy force. Lanyard holes are integrated into the handles, helping to make the Cheater compatible with today’s growing safety requirements on the jobsite.

Also available will be a range of Milwaukee straight pipe wrenches in both steel and aluminum in 10-, 12-, 14-, 18- and 24-inch sizes (24 inches is aluminum only). These pipe wrenches will also feature the Overbite Jaw, the dual coil spring design and ergonomic handles delivering best-in-class performance and maximizing user productivity.

Available starting in April of 2016, the new pipe wrenches are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in solutions that offer industry-leading reliability, performance and ergonomics.
