The MantisTol 20-inch Pro Flooring Cutter MC-510 performed well on laminate, carpeting, vinyl tile and plank, rigid core vinyl plank, and linoleum, cutting up to 20 inches at 16 mm (5/8 inch) thick. It achieved a score of 17 points out of 20 on laminate, a score of 17 on fiber-cement siding, and a score of 16 on MDF, rubber, linoleum, and vinyl tile and plank. It performed well on thicker materials, scoring a 16 on carpeting and 14 on rigid core vinyl plank, but struggled on thinner materials, scoring a 5 on carpeting and a 9 on vinyl tile and plank. It scored the lowest on MDF, scoring a 5, but it's a soft material, and the MantisTol 20-inch Pro Flooring Cutter MC-510 performed well on softer materials. The shear blade included with this flooring cutter worked well on laminate, scoring a 19, but on harder materials, such as rigid core vinyl plank, it required a bit of effort to cut through the material. The MantisTol 20-inch Pro Flooring Cutter MC-510 performed well on softer materials, but struggled on harder materials.

Roberts 10-895, 12 inch Vinyl Tile Cutter, Red

Roberts 10-895

by Roberts

Molded handle for extra grip and comfort

The Roberts 10-895 Vinyl Tile Cutter is an impressive piece of kit, and it's easy to see why it was chosen as the top pick among all tile cutters. The 10-895 is compact, lightweight, and portable, and the blades are sharp and easy to maintain. The cutter is easy to set up and use, and it's more affordable than some of the high-end cutters we tested, which are typically designed for professional use. The 10-895's cutting depth is also fairly deep, so it's well suited to cutting large tiles. However, the blades do get hot during use, and the plastic guard around the blade isn't particularly secure, so it's a good idea to wear a plastic glove. We also found that the 10-895's cutting performance was a little uneven, with some tiles being cut more cleanly than others.


If you're looking for a fast, accurate vinyl cutter, the Roberts 30002 Quik-Cut VCT cutter is worth the money. It's also compact enough to travel with, so it's a great choice for home use. The cutter has sturdy, metal construction, so it's built to last. The blade is very sharp and cuts very clean, leaving virtually no residue behind. The built-in measuring gauge makes it easy to line up your cuts. The cutter has sharp teeth that cut quickly, but it's a little slow to cut vinyl tiles. We found that the vinyl tiles tended to stick to the cutter and tear it away from the tiles. The cutter also struggles to cut tiles with corners, so if you frequently cut tiles with corners, you may want to consider a different cutter. One other thing to note: while most vinyl cutters have interchangeable blades, the Roberts 30002 Quik-Cut VCT cutter only has one, so you'll have to purchase a new one after you've cut all the tiles you want to install.

Roberts 10-900 Vinyl Tile Cutter, 12

Roberts 10-900 Vinyl Tile Cutter

by QEP Tools

Designed to cut Solid Vinyl Tile, Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT), and Cork Tile, up to 1/8 in. thick

The Roberts 10-900 Vinyl Tile Cutter has a simple, ergonomic design that makes it easy to use. The handle is shaped so it fits comfortably in your hand. The cutter's cutting blade is 12 in. tall, so you can use it to cut 12 in. tiles diagonally. The built-in wheels allow you to easily move the cutter from cutting location to cutting location. The swiveling wheels also allow you to easily maneuver the cutter around corners. The cutter has clearly marked measurements on both its front and back sides, so you can easily line up your tiles. The 45-degree miter guide makes it easy to make a 45-degree cut. The cutter also comes with a dust bag, so you can easily keep it clean. The cutter is light enough that you can easily move it around with the built-in wheels, but it's heavy enough that you won't want to lift it too often. The cutter's dust bag is fairly small, so you'll need to be careful not to overfill it. The dust bag has a zipper at the top, so it's easy to empty and refill.

MANTISTOL 13" Pro Vinyl cutter floor LVT-330 for VCT

by CutTool Ltd.

No dust, No noise, No electricity needed, Easy and Professional cutting vinyl floor, Save time.

The Mantistol LVT-330 is a relatively easy to use vinyl floor cutter that costs less than many similar models. It's lightweight and compact, making it easy to transport, and it has a cutting depth of 8mm, which is more than most comparable models. The Mantistol LVT-330 is also versatile, offering both straight and angled cuts, as well as L-shaped cuts and lengthwise cuts. The cutting guides are clearly marked, and, while it's not as precise as a dedicated floor cutter, the Mantistol LVT-330 is reasonably accurate, especially if you use the included ruler as a reference. The Mantistol LVT-330 is also relatively inexpensive, at less than $100, and it offers a good-value set of features.


The Magnum Soft Flooring Cutter was the fastest floor cutter we tested, cutting vinyl and rubber tile in about 12 seconds. It delivers smooth, precise cuts, with accurate cuts within 1/16 inch. Without the included cutting blade, the cutter is very slow and difficult to cut through carpet. But with the included blade, the Magnum Soft Flooring Cutter cuts through carpet with ease. The cutter has wheels, which makes it easy to maneuver around corners, but the cutter's long, thin shape limits its maneuverability. The cutter requires a 24V power outlet, which is inconvenient if you don't have a 24V outlet nearby. The included cutting blade is thin and flexible, and it quickly dulls, so you'll have to swap out the blade often, which can take about 10 minutes. When you do, the blade costs about $15. The Magnum Soft Flooring Cutter's long, narrow shape makes it easy to cut through large-format tiles, like 12-by-12-inch tiles, but it's more difficult to cut through small-format tiles, such as 4-by-8-inch tiles. The Magnum Soft Flooring Cutter works best when cutting vinyl tile and rubber tile, and it's slow and difficult to cut through carpet.

MantisTol 13'' Laminate Flooring & Siding Cutter MC-330 with Installation Kit ; For Pergo, Wood, Siding, Vinyl plank and More; Best Buy!

MantisTol 13'' Laminate Flooring & Siding Cutter with MC-330 Installation Kit ; For Pergo

by CutTool Ltd.

Item Weight 18.7 lbs, DIY For Household and Business, Strong and Durable Preferred for business

The MantisTol 13'' Laminate Flooring & Siding Cutter MC-330 is a sturdy, well-made tool with an impressive cutting capacity. It's easy to use, too: the 4 mm thick tungsten steel blade slides easily into position, and the handle increases cutting leverage with less effort. The blades are sharp, and the machine locks into place with a thumb screw, so it's secure. The included installation kit with tapping block, pull bar and spacers (with 20 spacers) is a nice touch, and we recommend it, especially if you're replacing floors or siding. The tapping block makes it easy to measure, and the pull bar makes cutting easier. The one drawback is that there's no power feed, which means you have to manually push the blade into the laminate. While you can drill a pilot hole and pre-drill, it's not ideal. We also wish the tapping block were a bit bigger, so it would be easier to line up the plank.

MantisTol 18

MantisTol 18" Heavy duty Vinyl cutter tile LC-460; For VCT

by CutTool Ltd.

No dust, No noise, No electricity needed, Easy and Professional cutting vinyl floor, Save time.

The MantisTol 18" heavy duty vinyl tile cutter is one of the most versatile cutters we tested. It's not as precise as some of the more expensive cutters we tested, but it has the power to cut through most vinyl floors, including vinyl planks, tiles, and LVP. It had no problem cutting through 12"-thick planks, and the cuts are very clean. The cutter does have a learning curve, as we had to make some adjustments to get a clean, straight cut every time, but after a few tiles, we were cutting like a pro. The included cutting guide is easy to understand, and the markings are easy to see. The cutter has a quick-release lever, which makes it easy to change the blade. The eject lever on the cutter is very tight, so you'll need to make sure it's fully charged before using it. The included battery only provides 80 minutes of cutting time, and it's recommended that you charge the battery before every use.

ROBERTS 10-918 18

ROBERTS 10-918 18" Pro Grade


ROBERTS vinyl tile Cutters are designed to cut solid vinyl tile, Vinyl composition tile (VCT), luxury vinyl tile and cork tile, up to 1/8 in. Thick

The Roberts 10-918 18" Pro Grade Tile Cutter is a decent tile cutter, but it struggles to consistently cut tile. It's much easier and more accurate to use tile nippers or scoring wheels. The blades are also a little difficult to change, and this cutter only comes with one. The blade is thin and wears out quickly, and it's also difficult to align because it's made from metal, not wood. However, it's lightweight and easy to move around, and it does come with two wheels for rolling the cutter after cutting tiles. The built-in casters are also helpful. The casters make it somewhat difficult to maneuver the cutter around corners and under cabinets, but the rubber feet help stabilize the cutter. This cutter also cuts 12" tiles diagonally, which is helpful if you need to use a 12" tile on a 18" wall.
