I've used it extensively for a few days before it needed a charge. The battery will hold for a good while. Before day 3 I had to charge the battery.

Portable power at a good price. The Milwaukee Oscillating Tool (Model 2526-21XC) cuts as quickly as my plug-in tool but without the hassle of cord. It balances easily but one-handed cutting is harder to control because the blade is so far forward of the hand grip. It also tires my wrist a bit more. Like the other M12 tools, it balances perfectly on the flat M12 battery pack. The LED shines nicely on the top of the blade but its shadow makes it difficult to line up a cut from the underside of the blade when needed. As usual, blades can be installed at a variety of angles, but note the LED always shines forward. There's only one thing I dislike about the tool: the blade lock mechanism. Changing blades means flipping a lever AND unscrewing the capture bolt; my corded unit just uses the lever, which automatically releases the capture bolt. I also had a major issue with the battery, which I'm hoping is specific to my unit. The battery WOULD NOT install completely, and needed two of us pulling to remove it. Other M12 batteries had the same issue. I had to remove a rubber bumper inside the battery compartment in order to seat the battery and make it removable (See photo). I've never had, or expected, an issue like that with a Milwaukee tool. The kit comes with a single blade, a sanding pad, some sanding sheets, an M12-only charger and a zippered canvas case. Everything BUT the blade is made outside the USA; the tool and bag are Made in China. It's an ideal tool for renovation work – I've used it on several door trim and baseboard replacement projects and the battery is still on its first charge. I may never use my corded tool again.

If I could give this thing 10 stars I would. I upgraded from a corded inexpensive multi tool to this and the difference is night and day! I have used this every day for the past month just because it is so easy to set up and start using in seconds. I love that I don’t have to have an Allen wrench with me to change to a new blade! I also used this to sand a vanity I just made and it got into all the hard to reach areas that my oscillating sander can’t reach! It also EATS wood while sanding so go easy with it! On its highest setting with the wood cutting blade from Milwaukee it can cut through 2x4s and 2x6s in seconds! I also got a ton of other blades and scrapers to use with it and it handles them all. The vibration is also very minimal on this multi tool compared to my last and is my favorite feature, I can barely feel it even on higher settings and it helps me cut straighter and with more accuracy. I highly recommend Milwaukees new FUEL multi tool and all their attachments! But make sure you have a spare battery or two if you have a large project. This will be one of your favorite new tools, it can do so much and handles itself like a much larger corded tool!

This is one of the most useful & versatile tools I use. I used this tool to selectively remove dry rotted 5/8" thick Cedar siding on my garage outside wall. I put a piece of masking tape on the included cutting blade, at the depth of the siding, so I wouldn't cut past the siding. I scribed a vertical line on the siding. I set the speed to 12 (max speed). In seconds the blade made a clean, effortless cut through the siding. I also used this oscillating tool to selectively sand off peeling paint on the outside door frame, preparing it for painting. I used 60 grit which removed the peeling paint very quickly. Prepping for painting has never been easier. All the peeling paint was gone in minutes. This package includes grits: 60, 80, 2-120, 240. I also used this tool, with cutting blade attached, to cut a PVC pipe in the field, at my farm. It made quick easy work of fixing a broken water line. There are a lot of features on this tool. The headlite is VERY handy & appreciated, by my aging eyes. The remaining battery power indicator lightes clearly show when a recharge is needed, before I start the next project. The speeds range from 1-slow to 12-very fast. Wondering which speed to use for a project was easily determined by adjusting the speed, as the tool was running, to see how it performed on the task. The M12 battery never failed to provide all the power I needed & recharged in minutes. I LOVE the super quick blade changing design. I simply raised the quick release lever, which loosens the retaining bolt, made a couple turns on the bolt & removed the blade. A GREAT detail is the magnetic adapter head. Once a new blade is seated on the magnetic adapter head the magnetic head HELD the blade in place till the bolt was hand tightened & the quick release lever was closed. Most of the tool has a non slip rubber like coating, is perfectly balanced & comfortable to hold & work with. It immediately reaches working speed. It includes: a heavy duty carrying case, operating manuals for the oscillating tool, battery & charger. This is a highest quality tool.

This is another great Milwaukee tool. I have several other M12 tools so this allows me to interchange tools and batteries as needed. I like that this is an all-in-one type set. You not only get the oscillating tool with standard accessories, but also a 4.0 ah battery and a charger. The set comes in a nice convenient tool bag. Once you charge the battery, you are ready to go to work.

This is a review of the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery, Charger, Accessories and Tool Bag. I really like the improvements made to this tool. I have the previous version, and this one is so much easier to change the blades on. You don't need a specific hex wrench any more. You can change the blades with any flat item, even a dime. There is an LED light which is nice. I was pretty surprised how much bigger the new tool is. The head is significantly bigger. I do like the rubber around the body that makes it much easier to grip. The new tool seems a little quieter and a lot smoother when running.

ADD-BOY MILWUAKEE! Milwaukee comes through with another winner. This tool is amazing and works well for many different types of tasks. What's fantastic about this kit is that it comes with everything you need to get started. The bag is no joke either. The attention to details and quality is given to every part of this kit. If your doing precision or fine work this tool is a must have. I have a plumbing task coming up at work and this tool couldn't of come at a better time. The tight spots that I need to get into will be easier to work with now that I have this tool for the repair. The light is the best part for me. Since I will be in a semi light dark space its going to help out big time! Switching out different types of cutting blades is easy as 1-2-3! They made this tool to be easy to use but durable as a tank! For this one... You get my "ADDA-BOY!" award Milwaukee!!!

The Milwaukee cordless oscillating multi-tool kit comes with a 4.0 Ah Battery, Charger, Accessories and Tool Bag. I have other corded oscillating tools but this tool exceeds the others in the way it accepts accessories (cutting tools), vibration and cutting speed. The tool has a range of speed from 10,000 OPM to 20,000 OPM. It comes with a fuel gauge to tell you the amount of charge left in the battery. When you turn ON the tool the fuel gauge will light up for 2-3 seconds showing the amount of charge in the battery. Typical applications for this tool include sawing/cutting, scraping and sanding. I found this tool to be excellent for cutting in electrical and switch outlets in plaster board. What I like most about this tool is not having an AC cord to plug in or to find an outlet to plug into. When changing accessories make certain that you lift the release level and push it firmly forward over the detent. If not you will not be able to unscrew the accessary bolt to remove or attach accessories.

One of the best things about this oscillating multi-tool is the quick release feature. I find that it is best to force the latch all of the way open to release the blade. The other thing that I like is the magnetic flange that the bolt tightens into. This magnetic flange temporarily holds the blade in place while the bolt is being tightened. This accessory bolt is attracted to the magnetic flange. The battery and charger are interchangeable with the smaller format compact M12 batteries that I have for my other Milwaukee drill motor, impact driver, and battery charger. The sanding pad is bigger than the sanding pads that I have for my old oscillating multi-tool.

Milwaukee’s combination of the 3.9 degree oscillation angle and speed of 20,000 OPM (333.3 OPS) makes cutting into and through materials a lot easier and quicker. This has a tool free blade change feature - flip up and push forward the release lever and unscrew the retention bolt by hand, fit on a blade, retighten the bolt by hand and flip the lever back down onto the body. There are 4 magnets in the blade “socket” helping to hold the blade in place while changing blades. The magnets are nice feature, but they do not work with the provided Sanding Pad (aluminum face plate). There is a sliding on/off switch on top of the tool, a speed adjustment wheel on the side and the battery level gauge between the two. A single LED light in front does a good job of lighting the work area. My old oscillating multi tool has a low powerful growl, but this has a higher pitched sound, which at low speeds is a reasonable noise level, but gets louder and louder - at settings 11 & 12 it’s has an annoying whine. Included is a study “Contractor Bag” - it has a handle, but its really only a storage bag, it does not have any retention loops nor compartments - everything is loose and rattles around – I have to remember to not throw away the corrugated cardboard dividers. Don’t bother looking at the Use and Care Manual linked in the “Info and Guides” – it is for the model 2426-20 - the previous version of the M12 tool. The correct version for this model 2526-20 can be found on the Milwaukee Tool website - the correct version is included with the kit of course.

Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery, Charger, Accessories and Tool Bag is a nice item. It has everything needed to do some project out of the box. Charge the battery and you are good to go. It includes a blade for cutting wood, a sanding pad and some triangular sandpaper pads. There is a 60 grit, and an 80 grit, two (2) 120 grit, and a 240 grit sandpaper included. The wood blade made a piece of wood into two pieces in short order. The blade works good and SWMBO is out sanding "as we speak." I can see I'm going to need some more attachments. The battery is a little difficult to remove for old hands.
