I have not as of yet used this too much. I have used it for sanding in some tight spots and it worked great. A few test plunge cuts with the included blade, which went very easily. The tool is quite heavy, but very solidly built. The only reason I mention the weight is that at my age and with a messed up right arm I notice weight with tools that need a lot of maneuvering and the need for a solid grip, I don't have one anymore!! For normal healthy guys this is a pleasure to use, as it has the power to get the work done quickly and it feels like it will outlast me easily.
it is a great tool and we have become fast friends. As have all of my Makita tools. I only converted to Makita a year or two ago, but I have become a dedicated fan. If you need a multi-tool and you have Makita 18v tools, add this to your collection, you will not be sorry.
