Pipe cutter is crushing the asbestoes cement pipe

Pipe cutter is crushing the wall of the asbestoes cement pipe instead of snapping it, the wall of the wall of the pipe is not "punkey" or soft. the wheels of the chain are touching the pipe evenly ( that we can tell) yet the top of the pipe where the chain hooks to cylinder , is crushing inward. the hydraulic pumped up , does make the pipe "pop" but doesn"t create a even break???

I think you are supposed to rotate the cutter around the pipe. If this is so then use a small amount of pressure and then rotate, repeat until pipe is cut.
The cutters could be blunt in which case they must be replaced.

Tile over a cracked cement floor

You can get a crack membrane to put over the cracks. First use a primer on the floor, this is a primer just for this application, then put membrane on top of primer. these products can be found at home depot or lowes or any tile store.Also do not use cheep thinset. the better thinset is more flexible and will absorb any movement. The cement board would not work as they will move or flex and cause the grout to crack and tile to loosen
