  • HIgh quality, useful tool set
  • November 16, 2012
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

I've been using the set for about a month now, as I rebuild my workshop. I had a similar set of Makita tools that got destroyed when my workshop burned down, and I think the Milwaukee tools are noticeably more powerful. The circular saw especially impressed me. It's light enough to carry up a ladder, but it has enough power to trim 2x8 PT rafters with ease. The reciprocating saw was useful for getting down and cutting roots out from under the stumps of a couple of trees that were killed by the fire. Hey, it's a real Sawzall. The impact driver was visibly more powerful than my helper's Makita. I cut a number of roof panels with a cutoff wheel on the angle grinder, and the drill made light work of putting half-inch holes through a lot of studs to string electric wiring. Initially, the batteries seemed to give out too quickly, but performance improved with use. I bought a couple of spare batteries, and although the batteries are good, the packaging was terrible. Plastic clamshell packaging should be illegal, and these were especially nasty to open. All in all, I must say this is a very strong set of cordless power tools, purchased at a reasonable price. I would recommend them to anyone; if they last as well as most Milwaukee tools, I'll be using them for the rest of my life.

Pros Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, "fuel gauge" on the batteries

  • Cut the Cord!

I'm blown away by the power this multi-tool has. I have a blue/gray brand corded mult-tool, and I'm always fighting with the cord when I'm working overhead or trying to get into cramped areas. This Milwaukee cordless multi-tool has all the power and better ergonomics without the hassle of a cord. I was also pleasantly surprised at how little vibration is transmitted to my hands. The tool comes with a sanding attachment and a disc/triangle of 60, 80, 120 (x2), and 220 grit sandpaper. There's also a wood flush cut blade attachment and an adapter that allows you to use just about any other brand's accessories with the multi-tool. Using a compact M18 battery pack, the tool is about the same weight as the corded multi-tool I also own. This tool has a great balance, and I discovered if my wrist starts to get tired after extended use, I can brace the back end against my forearm, giving me even more control. With a fresh compact M18 battery, the run time was about 18-20 minutes of continuous operation at full speed while under load the entire time. If you've got a few battery packs and a couple chargers, you should be able to keep going just about indefinitely. I did notice the tool was getting a little warm at the end of 20 minutes, but it wasn't overly hot. Just make sure you don't hold it covering the air vents. The tool-free accessory change design is awesome. Just flip up the lever and unscrew the tool hold-down (see pictures). There's even a slot in the screw that most accessories will fit in to give you a bit of extra leverage if it gets stuck. Much easier than digging around for an allen wrench to change out accessories. I haven't had an issue so far with the accessories coming loose, unlike other multi-tools I've used. The speed selection can be varied from 1-12, and there's a separate on/off switch so you can resume at the speed you left off at. The tool stops almost immediately once you turn it off, unlike the random orbital sander I'm used to. It's nice being able to set the tool down immediately when I'm finished sanding. If you've got a few M18 batteries and chargers already and you're considering a multi-tool, absolutely choose this one. You can't go wrong with Milwaukee, and you definitely won't miss having a cord at all!

Pros Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, All In One, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

  • Poor Blade Attachment Design
  • July 07, 2018

Ive been using this tool for about 9 months of commercial construction. It performs equal to my dremel corded version, and better when considering its cordless. I am heavily invested in the milwaukee m18 platform and love almost all my red tools. This is the exception. The blade attachment mechanism wore out and now the securing screw cant be properly tigtened. The screw falls completely out of the housing and the blade falls off the tool. I put it back on, use it for 15 seconds, same thing. Im by no means a new user to this tool. Ive successfully changed blades hundreds of times ans used the tool for countless hours. Try a different blade? Same result. Try milwaukee blades? Yep, they fall out. Id avoid this one. Time for a fuel redesign...

Milwaukee have truly done it with this tool. The ease of operation makes this tool handy for even the weekend DIYer. I continue finding reason to pull this tool out of the box to use and have not yet been let down. I have cut through 2" x 4" s with it and undercut door jambs, heck I even coped a piece of crown molding with it once in a pinch. Hands down, if you know anything about Milwaukee and the quality they produce along with the convenience of the 18v power/mobility this tool is an absolute must-have.

I bought these on for $399 (Christmas sale) so the price was more acceptable than the $649 normal price. I bought this set mainly for the circular saw because I was building a deck. I thought it would be handy to have a saw that wasn't corded. I did my research and most of the reviews were positive and being that I was a Milwaukee fan it made sense. Unfortunately the saw quit working after 3-5 minutes of actual work. I first thought that the battery needed to be charged, but when I replaced the battery for a fully charged one I realized that that the saw quit working. It still turns, but has no power and the motor smells. Up until that point I was happy. Maybe I just got one of the bad ones. I am still trying to decide if I return the whole kit or get a replacement saw.

I usually give Milwaukee's new M18/M12/Fuel, etc 5 star ratings because, well, the new products are superb. This however could take a few lessons from the DeWalt. No quick detach, the rotary dial is okay at best, and it comes with an Allen key but nowhere to lock it in the tool. So don't lose it!

I purchased 29 of these Milwaukee (6-Tooll) combo kits for all of my Employees for Christmas and they all loved them. We currently stock most of the same Milwaukee 18v and a lot of Milwaukee's corded tools on all of our 29 trucks. So this was a no Brainer to buy something you know works great and lasts a long time. Over 25 years ago we changed exclusively to nothing but Milwaukee tools. We found that Milwaukee really stands behind it's tools & there is a rarely a problem. Stan the Man

  • Great Multi-tool!
  • September 26, 2015
  • Recommended Product

I bought this tool because I bought an older house and will be repairing walls, sanding, cutting drywall, installing electrical and using this a great deal. This has been a very valuable tool thus far, works great and I am very pleased with it. The sanding aspect. The sander is great and the adjustable speed is a great feature. My only complaint is that the tip of the sander isn't the most durable as it is a cushion for the sand paper and it gets torn up rights away and the sand paper won't stick the greatest but is still fully functional. I am concerned about the sander lasting several years. If not, I do see they sell more tips. Also, the sander is larger than your dremel and diablo sanding papers...only buy bosch. This is important if your closer/local hardware store only sells dremel then you are forced to purchase from Home Depot. Just something to think about. However, the sander works great, the window's nooks and crannies were clean of paint and mildew quickly. Great sander. The multi-tool. Works great but the blade went dull instantly. Only buy carbide tips, it is worth the extra money. I was just expecting a little more out of the one that came with it. This is a very good tool to have when cutting drywall or getting close cuts through pipe. I am really happy with this purchase. I already had two M18 batteries. This tool sucks juice faster than drills but not so fast that you will be upset. If you need to use this tool all day just be prepared to prep for that. Sometimes I find my grip to adjust the speed setting accidentally but that is only due to how I tend to hold the tool. Very easy to switch tools. Easy to carry. it is a bit heavy after a few hours of use so if your wife may not like it as much as you would.

I have used the M12 version for years. But battery life tended to be a problem. The M18 version solves this problem. I am currently using it to remove 100+ year old fir flooring. The walls are mounted to the flooring, so I have to cut it at the walls to put in the new flooring. I also have to cut the nails holding the flooring down, as I need to reuse some of it to patch other areas. This tool is doing a great job. I have seen in other reviews that some people have a problem with the screw coming lose in use, or having to use tools to get the screw tight. I wonder if they are using the release lever correctly. The lever moves freely until it is about 170 degrees. Then you encounter resistance. But you have to continue until the lever has moved 180 degrees. Doing this, I have not had the screw come loose, and I only tighten it hand tight. No tools needed. I have cut multiple 10 penny nails at a time and never had a problem.
