Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely versital I wasn't sure how much I'd use this little thing, but I'm a team red addict and own my own contracting company so "I" buy all the tools I want. The first day I used it to cut some metal roof panels. The next job I used it for was a tile shower and I must have used it 40 times to trim notches and round cuts in the tile. It performed like a champ. I also used it to knock ridged off the rough cuts on my cement board to square up where I needed a better fit. I cut some Schluter trim pieces with ease as well. I have no idea what other uses I'll find for it, but I'm sure glad I have it at my disposal now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful. I bought this to grind off rivets holding an old radiator shroud to a basement wall. The size allowed me to get to the rivets where a larger grinder would not. Worked great, although with small battery it required frequent changes. I have two chargers and multiple batteries. It did come with the higher capacity battery, but it worked well with my smaller ones also. For fast cuts on light gage steel this tool would be great. I'm not sure if it would cut steel studs faster than scoring, but it would sure be faster than snips. Having two or three of these on a job would let you leave them at the task location instead of carrying with you while moving from spot to spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool I do a lot of small projects that use various sizes of metal. in the past i would use a scroll saw with a metal cutting blade or put a metal cutting blade on my hand saw. this tool handles all those situations. it’s light, easy to handle with one hand, and the forward/reverse switch helps with cutting direction and directing cuttings away from you. used it to cut through 4x4x1/4 angle iron. went right through, just take your time and let the wheel cut. the add on blade wheel guard has a vacuum port and flat guide so it’s like using a hand saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go to, can't live without tool. This is the second one I have purchased. I couldn't afford the down time while the first one was in for repairs. Like the title says, this is my go to tool. I use it exclusively for cutting metal, be it steel, aluminum or copper. Before I got this, I would either have to dig out a 4 1/2 inch angle grinder or a recipe saw. While those tools would work, this is a lot less hassle. I've had situations where I didn't have access to a power outlet and had to rely on this little thing and it delivered. I've had a few times where the motor has bogged down but that was due as much to a low battery as it was to material trying to pinch the cutting wheel. For me it's become a must have tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little 3” Grinder that CAN! The Milwaukee M12 Fuel 3” Compact Cut Off Tool is very deceiving for its size. I was skeptical at first when I was looking into purchasing this tool as it looks like it cant keep up with work production. I was sorely mistaken. I have used this to cut open hollow metal door frames to prep for electric strikes, prep aluminum frames surface mounted rim strikes and cut open headers to prep for heavy duty surface bolts. This tool has countless uses. The tool will cut off if you push too much into your work piece, so it’s important to let the wheel do the cutting with out pushing too much. Keep the RPM’s up and it wont cut off. The tool will burn through some batteries quickly. I am currently using Milwaukee 4.0 M12 batteries. I can use up a fully charged battery with continuous use in less than 15 minutes. Continuous use means non stop cutting. The tool gets in tight place’s easily compared to the larger cut off tools. I highly recommended it to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love milwaukee tools! This tool works great. (fyi for anyone buying: the auto stop protect feature will wear in overtime so dont be alarmed!) its to protect the fuel motor ;) nice cutting tool for basic cuts, i figured the compact'ness would help me get in to those tighter areas but it would be nice if the cutting blade "stuck out" a little more and if the motor portion was shorter, if possible. I continue finding the tool/motor bumping into other surfaces and not being able to get it in there, then switching to the either angle grinder, die grinder, or the vibrating multitool. Works great for straight cuts on top of metal or even wood if u got the blade, love it, just wish it were designed to get into tighter areas like you'd think

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and again As a diesel mechanic for 15 years working on 40ft buses, fire fighter trucks, ambulance and police vehicles: crown vics, Chevy Impalas, Dodge chargers.... This M12 compact cut off tool has been used very hard and still holding up like the day I bought it. I use it to cut off 6in circumference exhaust pipes, cutting off 6tf stainless steel panels after accidents to access and replace radiators. It came in real handy when I had to cut out a wheel well to get a ambulance back to the shop after a side collision. I recently purchased the right angle M12 die grinder and cannot wait for the straight grinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutoff tool. Extraordinaire I have used this tool while doing bodywork on my classic car. I have used it to remove the old quarter panel, Clean up the spot weld areas, make significant adjustments to the quarter panel, and grind down the new spot welds to get ready to finish the quarter panel as well as the filler panel between the trunk and rear window. I have much more to go on the car and I will be using it extensively on the car. It has replaced my air grinder for this process. Much much quieter and much more freedom using the tool. There is no air hose to get in the way or get tangled around your feet. No air compressor running either. So much quieter! Excellent tool.
