Here's the NO part:
Only Rain Bird's Xeri-Bug emitters have a sharp point so they can be installed directly into the supply hose. So you cannot use this tool as Rain Bird intends: to push the emitter into the supply tubing, creating its own hole unless you use Rain Bird emitters.
Here's the YES part.
However, once you've created a hole in the supply hose this tool can be used to install and remove and emitters with 1/4" outputs.
If you want to use DIG or other brand emitters you should probably select an install tool that also punches holes in the supply tubing. On the other hand I highly recommend using Rain Bird emitters (and this tool); the ease of installation is worth it.
