I've always used 18 volt tools but needed a smaller one to fit between joists and HVAC systems/appliances. This is the perfect size and weight. It has enough power for what I need it for. I wouldn't use it for major drilling or anything. I've been using milwaukee for over 20 years and although their quality has gone down a little, they are still very reliable. Batteries have gotten a lot better over the last decade or so, also.

This review is for Milwaukee 3" Compact Cut Off Took Kit, Cat. No. 2522-21XC. The kit includes the cut off tool with brushless motor, one M12 Red Lithium XC 4.0 AH battery, M12 Charger, three 3-inch cut off blades, a dust shoe with dust removable dust discharge cap, hex head wrench and a tough fabric case. The blades supplied are for metal, for drywall, fiber cement and plastic and for dry-cutting tile. The tool is indeed compact, weighing a light 2 lb., 14-1/2 oz. with the metal cut off blade and dust shield attached. I made use of the tool while indoors in our home with the dust shield attached while connected to Cat. No. 0885-20 Milwaukee M18, 3-in-1 Backpack vacuum. I was impressed with the dust collection performance of this combination when used to cut fiber cement, normally a very dusty process. With the dust shoe attached as a guide, the orientation of the handle to the blade allows one to make quick, accurate cuts with one-handed operation, much like that for a standard circular saw. Most cut off tools do not have this advantageous orientation. I found this tool great for cutting sheet metal. I made quick and accurate cuts of rectangular holes into existing ductwork by plunge cutting. I impressed also by its performance cutting for fiber cement siding. This tool is compatible for use with blades having both 3/8- and 7/16-in. arbors by switching a supplied collar. The normal 5-year limited warranty is provided for the tool. This is a welcome tool addition to my handyman shop.

MILWAUKEE! M12 FUEL at its FINEST! This GEM surely is one heck of a handy tool to have for a DIY'er! I love the fact that its not a bulky piece of equipment that takes up a lot of space or is to heavy. The size of it is small but don't let that fool you. It has pure power behind it and as you can see in my video the wheel never slowed down or dragged as a result of what I was cutting. It went through aluminum and floor tile with ease. There was minimal effort and the saw did most of the work nice and steady. The battery held up strong and didn't even flinch. When cutting, the saw stayed nice and steady! It comes with a nice set of different blades and a guide attachment with a vacuum connecting point. A handy charger and M12 battery is included in the bag in which there is plenty of room for any additional miscellaneous equipment that you may need. Milwaukee never disappoints! In my opinion they are the front runners when it comes to savvy tools such as this cordless saw. Two thumbs up here guys!

This is the Milwaukee M12, 3” cut-off saw kit (model 2522-21XC), which includes the tool, 4.0Ah battery, cut off wheel, carbide abrasive blade (general purpose use, such as for plastic, fiberglass, drywall, cement board, etc.), diamond tile blade, accessory shoe guard, Allen wrench, flange adapter, charger, and contractor bag. Normally, you’d use discs with a 3/8” arbor hole, but Milwaukee includes the flange adapter (which is 7/16”) so you can use Dremel Saw-Max blades. You should also note that the saw spins at 20,000 RPM and the cut direction is reversible. There’s a certain “cute” factor about this saw. It’s really small, and all the parts are really small, making the thing kind of cute. I wasn’t expecting that. Photo 1 shows the saw, without the battery sitting in the palm of my hand. Judge for yourself… One of the things I think is very cool about this tool is that you can use it like a circular saw because it comes with a shoe guard. This gives you a supporting surface to guide along the material you’re cutting and also includes a vacuum port (for inserting a 1 1/4” hose) for dust management. Without the shoe attached, the tool is like a small angle grinder, but note, Milwaukee specifically says the discs are for edge cutting only, not surface grinding, so this tool is not meant to replace a standard angle grinder. Milwaukee considerately includes the three blades, as I mentioned above (see Photo 2). Note that the diamond tile wheel only cuts in one direction, so you need to pay attention to how you mount it and to the Forward/Reverse button when you use that wheel. The other wheels are bi-directional in cutting. Storing the tool with a blade installed can be problematic. I found the tool naturally wants to rest “face down,” that is, on the blade, which isn’t such a good idea. However, if you rest it on its back, with the blade sticking up, I think it would be safe enough (see Photo 3). In use there isn’t a problem because it stands upright, on the battery. I noted also that there is nowhere to store the Allen wrench (used for changing blades) on the tool. This is too bad-makes it easy to lose the wrench if you’re not careful to always keep it in the bag (didn’t take any points off for this). There’s a small error in the manual. On page 6, under Using the Control Switch, in item number 1, it says for Forward, to press the control switch “from” the left. And item 2 says, for Reverse, press the control switch “from” the right. They have it reversed. If they wrote “to the left” and “to the right,” respectively, then it would be correct. This really isn’t a problem because when you actually use the tool, it’s obvious how to set the switch, but in the interest of being thorough, I point this out. A good example of needing the Forward/Reverse function is when I needed to cut two 1/4” sleeve anchors I recently installed. I can get to one of them only from the left, and the other only from the right. I was able to direct the sparks down in both cases by using Forward with the left bolt (see Photo 4) and Reverse with the right bolt (see Photo 5). It’s hard to tell in Photo 5, but I’m holding the saw upside down, and running in Reverse. This was easy to do and worked out great. The saw took only seconds to cut cleanly through the bolts. I also cut some ceramic tile using the included diamond blade (see Photo 6). The cuts were excellent and it was easy to clean up the inside-corner with the saw. Finally, I wanted to see how well the shoe worked. I had a piece of 1/8” whiteboard stock and tried making a straight cut up the edge. I set up a fence like you would for a circular saw and ripped away. This wasn’t even a challenge for the saw. I couldn’t test the dust port because I couldn’t find anything in my shop that would fit. It would nice if Milwaukee provided one or more adapters for larger size hoses. And maximum depth of cut is 5/8” when using the shoe. All-in-all, for a small, compact saw, this is a great tool. It’s easy to handle, yet has enough power to cut whatever you want. I can see myself reaching for this tool long before going for my regular angle grinder when all I need is to do cut-off work. Absolutely a great tool.

Milwaukee’s new M12 cutoff tool is such a great idea well executed. The 3” cutting discs it comes with go on and off in seconds. The guard isn’t removable for safety reasons, but adjusts 45 deg and hasn’t yet been an obstruction. The motor housing is compact enough that, while it will sometimes be in the way if you’re in a really tight space with obstructions closer than your cutting surface, 99% of the time, you can get in and make the cut easily. The wheel at full 3” size provides enough distance. I’d imagine when the wheel material burns off enough, it could be an issue in some cases. That being said, overall it is a handy, lightweight, dynamic tool focused on cutting, and a bit more powerful and efficient than a rotary tool. It can also be turned into a circular saw in a pinch with its attachment included in the kit. I can’t really knock it just because it doesn’t completely replace your air die grinder or rotary tool. It is more comfortable and when and where it works, I imagine it will become most peoples’ prefered tool. As usual, no compromise on quality to be found anywhere with the tool and its accessories.

Another fine tool from Milwaukee. Uses the 12-volt system which provides plenty of power.. This tool is a good size and weight and can be easily used with 1 hand. It is very powerful yet light weight. The blade turns both forward and reverse depending on your needs and has a handy shoe accessory that also has a convenient dust port as well. The set comes with 3 blades for a variety of tasks. I used it to cut some pipe and it did a great job easily cutting them with 1 hand. This will be a handy tools to have for a variety of cutting projects. I also like the large roomy carry bag to store my tool.

I have several cutoff saws corded and battery. I liked this one because I can use this most times with one hand and it has a forward and reverse I mostly use the metal cut off blade and it cuts nicely also comes with 1 carbide abrasive blade, 1 diamond tile blade, accessory shoe and guard, blade wrench, 7/16 in. flange adapter. One draw back is the battery you have to pinch both sides and pull to get the battery out not having the strength in my hands like I use to I found this to be a challenge and the only reason I did not give this a higher rating.
