Worst Milwaukee Tool I have tried
This thing is great when it works. I'm on my 3rd warranty replacement now (about 1 year and 6 months since the original), and the new one went for about 3 minutes before it died. I haven't even gone through 2 of the supplied cutting discs that came with the original tool. At least they have a good warranty, but I will be buying a corded Dremel because I'm tired of breaking out the hack saw and files every time I'm working on something and this breaks. It has always been something to do with the power switch or the speed controller. Milwaukee needs to trash this and make something that can withstand the force of being picked up and turned on.

    Little powerhouse
    Needed a rotary tool to enlarged some holes for a project and this little Milwaukee handled it with no problem. I initially purchased another brand which is probably the best known name for rotary tools and it died on me 5 minutes in on its first use. I thought it had just overheated but even after letting it sit overnight it still didn’t work. Since I have tons of Milwaukee 12v batteries, I figured it was smart to go with the Milwaukee. So far I’m very happy with it.

      nice power and portable
      A rotary tool is a very helpful tool and doesn't get credit. I think often more times than not you believe you won't necessarily need one. I was on the fence about the purchase but I don't regret it. I use this little bugger almost every day for something. It is light and very portable and packs a punch don't be mistaken. THIS AIN’T NO CORDED DREMEL PEOPLE COM’ ON.

        I am an industrial maintenance mechanic and this little tool saved me. I used it to cut and form a new key to mount a motor onto a gearbox the original key was lost. Definitely worth the money.

        I Am a professional Locksmith and I have bought two of these, the first to replace a corded dremel that last less than 6 months on the job. I use them to grind and cut metal. My first one is still running after over two years of regular and hard service. So I bought a second one so I don’t have to switch the cutting bit out for a cutting wheel. I can leave them setup for efficiency. I highly recommend this product.

        First I have to admit that I strongly prefer all tools by Milwaukee. Their attention to quality is unsurpassed. I have numerous M12 and M18 powered Milwaukee tools and I use them for everything from roofing to changing tires This particular rotary tool is used predominantly to grind down and smooth my dogs' toenails. It is so convenient to have a cordless rotary with the power to do the job. I have, in years past, tried other cordless rotaries and they won't maintain their rpm and they heat up to the point they're uncomfortable to hold. This little Milwaukee stays constant and strong through all 4 dogs, doesn't heat up and is quieter than my old Dremel brand plug in model. The M12 battery lasts for hours doing any job I ask of it. I highly recommend Milwaukee brand tools for any project or big job you might take on. They're lifespan and power has proven to be so much better than any other brand of tools I've tried.

        great rotary tool
        I have a corded rotary tool that i really like but was tired of the cord. I got this for the projects I have that are difficult to get to with a cord and don’t need a lot of power. I was surprised to find that this thing has plenty of power and way break out the corded one only on rare occassions now. I would definitely recommend this tool.

        I use a rotary tool all the time as an oilfield electrician this tool saves me tons of time at work and works just as good as my plug in model. I would recommend this to anyone! It's awesome.
