I purchased the Skil cutting unit about a month ago it has been a reliable quality unit from day one. I have cut vinyl floor covering, plastic, cardboard and paper multiple times with an expected performance each time.

This works great for what I needed it for. I'm using this on cardboard, and not really taxing it with difficult materials, or operating it for any prolonged length of time. To me a corded model would have been better.

Another Christmas has come & gone....and with it mounds of various size boxes that need to be put out in recycling. Before that chore was daunting, but since my son purchased this Power Cutter for me, I zip through boxes like a knife through butter! One of the best gifts ever!

We bought this rotary tool to cut a multitude of products, it cuts everything from paper tablecloths to cardboard and carpet. It's a great tool and real time saver. We wanted to purchase another pair of the Black and Decker cordless scissors like we had, but they are no longer made, but I think these work way better. We are very satisfied with the tool.

I bought this tool with the intention of cutting 1/8" sheets of acrylic. Aside from homedepot.com shipping it to the wrong address twice, I recieved it and looks really solid. I'm sure the battery life is great and the blade probably does sharpen itself. It fits in your hand, good balance and it is relatively quiet. This tool would be great for children's art and craft projects, I use it as a reminder that I have an addiction to buying cheap useless junk on the interwebs.
This would be great if the blade moved faster than a revolution per second.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cashed one of the best tools i have ever purchased
my wife and i are in our mid 60's, i wanted to re-do our house now and not wait for retirement. so, we started our major project and decided to go with new rugs throughout the whole upstairs. we new we could save some money by tearing out our old rugs ourselves. this Skil cutting tool made it so easy to make the cuts we needed in order to carry the rugs out of the house and dispose them. we can't carry heavy loads like we use to and this tool made it so easy. best investment i have made in years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cutter Easy to use, a bit big for my hand.
This is a wonderful replacement for a utility knife on long tedious jobs. I cut roofing paper (tarred felt) into 11 foot by 5.5 inch strips to protect deck joists. Having done the job many times both with a utility knife or with a scissors, I am excited to have finished in less than one third the time with no repetitive stress injury to my hand. Whoo hoo! The only difficulty for me is that the handle with its saftey switch is just a little too fat for my hand. That made it hard to get a totally straight cut. Still, it is a small price to pay for the quick results. Also, I think I bought this in January and charged it then. It has been sitting ever since and I picked it up and it was ready to go and lasted through the whole job. Great hold on that charge! :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bo42261 Good product and easy to use.
For a small handheld cutter, this product does a very good job. The only complaint is cutting something like carpet, it can sometimes be hard to get started, but if started it does a good job.

Absolutely amazing product. It cut through the basement carpet like butter. Did the entire basement with one charge. It's small and light. Shaped to grip very well in your hand. I got tired long before the cutter did!

I had several applications for a powered cutting tool, most importantly cutting a large amount of carpet when doing some remodeling. Had no problem cutting medium high pile in intricate patterns that would have been too difficult with traditional carpet cutting tools. Surprisingly, had no difficulty also cutting self adhesive vinyl floor tiles! Each project was completed on a single (separate) charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homeshopper This product did exactly what I bought it for.
I bought this to cut up all the cardboard boxes I accumulate from online shopping. I like them to be cut up small and neat for recycling and using a box cutter was very cumbersome. I lost the first one I had and missed it so much I bought a second. I love this tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sailor222 Great little cutter
I bought this two months ago and it works great. The Li-ion battery really holds a good charge. Cuts thru two layers of heavy material easily. Would recommend this to anyone who needs a light weight fabric cutter.

I've used this so much that I need to obtain new blades. How do I go about that? I haven't been able to find them locally.

I have got a lot of use out of this cutter. I no longer struggle to cut up cardboard boxes for recycle, fight opening plastic covered products and have used it to cut up old carpet in house for disposal.
