The best thing about this tool is that milwaukee offers it. They are one of a few that have a cordless Multi-Tool and this is an example of how their M12 line beats out everyone on variety.
If you've used a multi-tool you know what they can do. I bought this for sanding and cutting and haven't been disappointed. I've cut holes for several new electrical outlets in plaster and lathe and can't imagine doing it with anything else. This thing has proved to be tough as I've abused it cutting deep through siding with dull blades. It's gotten incredibly hot but kept going.
Battery life isn't great, 15 minutes hard cutting or more if doing light work but thats why they included two batteries.
The charge time is about the same as the runtime so with this set you'l be able to run continuously.

This is a handy tool to have on hand. I can see lots of uses for it given the many different attachment heads that are available. The Universal Fit attachments worked fine. I was using the tool for a rather unconventional task, cleaning out the cracks in between boards on the deck up next the the edges, and the battery, on high, only lasted about 10 minutes. Luckily I have a second battery that was charging so I could use for 20 minutes straight. Recharge time was really good. I didn't time it exactly, but within a half hour. My only complaint was that getting the battery off is really hard. I don't have large Man-Hands, so it took all my strength and several attempts to get the battery off. Other than that, it performed as expected and will use for lots of projects in the future. I wish I had had it to cut door jams when I replace linoleum for tile in bathrooms and kitchen. But I'll have a chance to do that when I replace carpet with wood flooring...I'll have 8 doorways to adjust.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fernbark A very handy tool
Once you learn the limitations and nuances of this tool it is very fun to use. It excels at sanding, and cutting drywall, but it is not as good at straight cutting. It vibrates like crazy and if you want to cut something it has to be rock solid

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rearadmiral great for moderate power needs
milwaukee always makes great tools and this is one of them. Early models had poor battery life, but the new ones are great. two batteries absolute necessity though. This is not a high powered tool to be used for extended periods on tough materials...go to a 120 v corded one if you plan to use it for big jobs and tough materials. but for homeowner, this is one great tool. fast and easy to use, comfortable and does things no other tool can. The adaptor that lets you use other proprietary blades is key to its flexibility....I think Dremel attachements/blades are great and they can be used with this tool. Well worth the money. Would buy again.

The Multi-tool is a great tool. The Li battery holds a charge for a few days, and charges quickly. The saw cuts wood and plastic quickly. I build large model airplanes, and this saw will be one of my favorite tools on the work bench.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Another great Milwaukee tool. Very powerful and very ergonomic. My small framed wife had no problem using it.
We do a lot of work with fiberglass, and this tool makes very little dust. On that fact alone it displaced much of the work we have done in the past with other sanders and the rotary dremel. The only problem is getting replacement sanding pads & paper. Home Depot could have made a lot of money on us this summer if the stores would stock some of that. You pretty much have to go to several mail order places to get what you need. Hope you are listening Home Depot.

Tool works great but it goes through the battery pretty quickly. I used it to notch through 10 PT 2x4 and it had no problem cutting through them. But I had to recharge the battery a couple of times to finish the job. Which, brings me to my only issue with it. The batteries are really expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bjdtoolguy Superior product-easy to use-great battery life
Having two particular projects in mind, I purchased the "multi-tool" with the express intent of quickly finding out "what is was made of," I used it to sand second story dormer window trim and the battery life was fantastic Then, used it to sand off poly from oak stairs treads. Again, easy to handle, and great sand paper life. I am totally pleased with my purchase.
