          Worth the addition to the tool box.
          I was concerned prior to purchasing in reguards to the locking feature of the depth adjustment based off other reviews... how ever it performed flawlessly. Used it on sheet rock no problems. And the lack of power cord helped big time while working on stilts in a room with no power.

          Easy To Use
          Easy to use tool, sad to say once I bought the oscillating tool this tool has been feeling lonely. Still love the power and performance.

          Best circular saw I’ve ever owned
          Allows me to get into the tight spaces. Cuts trim fast on the fly. Rips plywood faster than a rabid beaver compact unlike the heavy models . Only issue is they don’t make a guard for bigger blades.

            tool locked after 4 months
            Purchased 4 months ago an today it locked. Poor design on the top opening which is supposed to help blow sheetrock away from tool actually creates buildup when cutting out lights or air ducts in cieling. The dust coming out goes inside the tool and dries out the fan bearing. Its starts squeeling than eventually locks. Not recommended for heavy duty use this is made for light duty jobs.

              Easy one handed control
              This tool is sturdy but light weight allowing accurate control by one hand. Cutting is relatively precise through dry wall with replacement bits available at THD to cut through wood and other materials. As others have mentioned the depth adjustment/limiting guide at the head of the tool has preset notches at specific intervals and so can not be smoothly adjusted to any particular depth you may desire. The fan near the cutting bit does blow some dust away but nothing that would keep you from wearing a mask or cleaning up with heavy use. All in all this tool is a great time saver and reliable.

              Does a nice job
              This Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Cut Out Tool Bare Tool is a pretty nice tool over all. Very comfortable in your hand, quick bit change and very quick depth adjustment. Comparatively quiet. I found cutting with it very controllable and comfortable. The battery life I can not verify because as of this review, it hasn't died yet and I used it to create the Milwaukee demo(see pic) and cut out 6 outlet openings. I have an issue with the guide being somewhat wobbly and I just don't see the benefit of the advertised "Vent on top of tool to blow debris away from the user". But over all this is solid addition to my Milwaukee tool collection.
