Extremely versatile and compact!!
Milwaukee's 3" cut off tool is very well designed for use in detailed applications. The cut comes with the cut off tool, a tool free accessory guard and shoe that includes a vacuum adapter, three different material cutting wheels, a 7/16 flange adapter for 3" Drexel saw-max accessories, M12 charger and XC4.0 battery, and contractor bag. The cut off tool is very unique because you can reverse the rotation of the blade giving you more control when you are making cuts. The tool free guard with vacuum allows you to make cuts and clear out debris at the same time. First off the tool is super compact and ergonomic and is extremely well balanced for one handed use. You can easily maintain full control of the tool with one hand for detailed work you do with the tool. The included blades with the kit are for metal, tile, and plastic, and I already ordered ahead of time Drexel saw-max blades to cut into wood. The tool does a good job of making detailed cuts in tile, but so far I have found it the most useful in removing grout. The tool free guard is great so debris does not fly in your face, but make sure the vacuum adapter cap is on when you run the tool. I was excited to try out the vacuum adapter, but my Packout vacuum was unable to connect to the adapter, not sure what I'm missing on that. Also I feel like it would have been cool to have an on board tool storage to change out the wheels. Other than those, the overall kit works really well and is a great addition to my Milwaukee tool arsenal!!

      Not the best .
      When I 1st seen this product I was very excited to purchase it because I thought it would cut my job In half But instead it made it more Complicated because I would only be able to use it To make a few cuts and then the battery would die so I Placed it on charge It said the battery was completely charged and I went to go use it and the same thing happened to me again it only did a few cuts in the battery died instantly I mean it would have been a great product if the battery lasted longer But instead it just made My job a nightmare because I had to constantly Stop everything I was doing just to go and re charger and then tried again and then I would have to go and get my Skil saw so overall rating on this Product Would be a negative 5

        The tool performed excellent. I used it for a recent tile back splash job that had several outlets and light switches. Plunge cuts for the outlets were great with the 3 inch blade, and fine smoothing on cuts was great with the grinder capability. The weight and ergonomics were perfect and non-hindering to detail cuts. I have only had the tool a couple weeks, but can see this tool as a go to device for tile needs as well as other detailed cuts going forward.

          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!
