Simular Noise & Vibration to My Corded Tool
I bought mine on sale a couple of months ago and really liked it, once I figured out, that the few attachments that come with it are either out of round or unbalanced. The wire brush was the worst offender. It made it louder and vibrate badly. I threw them all away and use the ones from my Dremmel. Like other reviews the tool itself is smooth, and while loud, and a different pitch, very comparable and not louder than my corded Dremmel, which I also like very much. Both are 5,000-30,000 RPM and have a combined on/off variable speed control. Without the battery, both are about the same size and weight. The battery adds 1 inch to the length and a little weight, while losing the power cord. I ran a comparison with the same attachment: With a Dremmel grinding stone to sharpen my lawn mower blade, both were equally good. With a cutoff wheel on all thread rod, the Craftsman had somewhat more torque, I could exert more pressure and cut a little quicker before the wheel slowed down, than with the corded Dremmel. I was impressed. I never ran a battery life test. The trick to these Nextec tools is to have more than one, and swap batterys on the fly. They fit in my pocket and charge as follows: Top off-5min Full charge from empty-30 minutes. If the fuel gauge indicates yellow or charge-20 minutes. The charger is ?smart? and shuts off when done. Amazing amount of power from small battery. Plus they come charged right out of the box and keep their charge sitting in my drawer.

Not Worth at all
Seems like very powerfull and heavy duty but under a load it quits. you have to turn it off and on again and and again . for very light work like polishing it will be ok but cutting and grinding and other stuff it quits every 5 to 10 seconds. no where close to my corded rotery tool. the one star i gave is for the charger not the tool. i like the quick boost charger which i will use for nextec auto hammer i have.the tool is worthless. the only reason i am not returning the tool is the price i paid on cyber monday was way less than charger and battery alone.

Great value

I shopped around for this tool. Sears had, by far the best price. I am a car stereo installation tech. I needed a cordless for my work environment. The tool is battery powered with a lithium ion battery. It is powerful and last long enough for most small projects. It only comes with one battery. I suggest getting a second one. The tool has a convenient lamp on the tip. Overall, it is perfect for what I use it for.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So Far has worked flawlessly, great power too

I am impressed, I have gone through 2 (Dremel) cordless tools and this one is far more powerful, I love the Battery, the ability to Quickboost when ya need just a little more battery, not to mention the battery actually charges rather fast compared to what I have used. I took a chance as this item was listed 50% off. I had no Idea how good these work. So far I have sharpened my Ninja, Lawnmower blade, Polished a few Items. I am also liking the other tools that interchange with the Nextec battery packs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Below average.

I really enjoy all of my Nextec tools. They are sized well for home use and have had plenty of power for building shelves, tables and a mix of other things. I've used both battery powered and corded Dremel units and always had good results. I was excited to see a Nextec based one to go along with my collection. This one just can't handle anything that puts resistance on the bit. I can polish and sand - cutting is futile - but that's been my primary use for these kinds of tools. Disappointed in the lack of torq. All other tools are great. I which they would update this one too.

Handy cordless rotary tool

Perfect for getting into tight spaces. I plan to use it in removing grout on my bathroom tiles. The LED light is an added benefit too.

Nextec Rotary Tool

I find this tool to be very easy to use and lightweight to enable versatile use in projects. I bought it originally to use it for sharpening chain saw chins but since using it I have found more uses for the tool. I have not had it very long so I can't comment on its durability and life.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

love this tool

This is such a handy tool that I bought two of them(both for me). It has enough power, you just have to let the tool do the work. I also have many of the other nextec tools, it is a great quality brand and the battery is much stronger than ANY other brands that I have. Can't go wrong with this product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
