I owned the original Nextec Multi-Tool and it worked great. My only complaints were the lsingle speed and the need to use a wrench to change the blades. The new model addressed these issues and I thought great, I'll get it. The problem is the quick release doesn't hold the blade tight enough. If any pressure is applied the blade stops moving entirely (while the shaft continues to move) making it impossible to cut anything harder than balsa wood.
I exchanged the tool thinking the one I had was defecftive but the replacement has the exact same problem.
The compared to the original, the shape is akward and it lacks a dust attachment. But, it's the inability to hold the blade solid that makes this tool useless. Stick to original (and make to keep the blade tight).

I purchased this as a gift for my father in-law. I own the earlier model that does not have the quick release blade system. Much better and easier to use. Nice update. Tool requires a little learning curve but very useful around the house.
I have virtually every tool in the Nextec line and have only good things to say about all of them except this one. Everything seems to be working great - the power is adequate, the variable speed setting works well. However when putting even a small amount of pressure on any attachment, the attachment loses the connection to the motor - so the motor keeps going and oscillates while the attachment remains stuck. On some attachments the pressure holding the attachment to the machine is not strong enough and the attachment itself swings freely. I replicated this problem with THREE different units and ALL had this problem. So essentially the only way to use this is to just barely touch the blade to the workpiece and hold it there until you get old since nothing will happen. I will be going back to my 1st generation Nextec multitool without the quick release feature, but since that one had problems with attachments loosening and the only way to prevent it was tightening the attachment bolt so much that it stripped, I will need to buy another brand name now. So this is the only tool in the Nextec line which is not good for basic tasks.

Have the original Nextec 12v multi-tool and love it. Used for past 2-3 years. Switched to the quick release version a week ago and quickly returned it for exchange. Wouldn't cut paper, let alone wood. Second tool no better than first. Whole tool vibrated and would not cut. Returned the second one, also. Have gone back to the original model. Cuts circles around the quick release model. Have three other Nextec 12v tools and all are top of the line. Had hight hopes for this latest, but not a chance of anything positive for it. Very disappointed.
