We are building a new deck and we needed to cut back some of the vinyl siding. If you've ever had to cust siding you know how tough that stuff is! We tried a hack saw and a reciprocating saw but none worked like I thought it should so I went to Sears to see what I could find and this was it.
Like a hot knife through soft butter this thing went through the siding! We had our cuts done in no time and were back on track! While this is just one use for this tool I'm sure we will come up with a lot more in the near future!
Bought during a Sears liquidation. Great tool, for a little while. Used probably a total of less that 3-4 hours all together over a course of 8 months or so. Power lights still work, but motor is DEAD. Since Sears out of business in my area now, and I don't have the receipt. it's a lesson learned. When looking for the model number to research troubleshootinng, I noticed "Made In China" on it. I guess Craftsman isn't the quality it used to be. In reading other peoples reviews, it seems I'm not the only one with this issue. Will replace with Ryobi or Dremel.
After a few times of use, maybe 30. min total. It stopped running. It will run if I hold the tool with one hand and the other hand on the speed switch. Can't use effective.
good price for a strong multitool, wish it had the tool less blade change though
Needed a multi-tool... after struggling for years trying to get on without one, I borrowed a friend's for some finishing work... a worthwhile investment given its versatility. Use it for cutting and sanding where larger tools would be overkill. Just keep in mind what its intended use is... and you'll be happy.
I got this as a birthday gift and I could not be happier. Already used it and it work great at sanding those hard to reach areas. I have not had a chance to use the other accessories that came with the tool, but I'm sure I will.
I bought this tool to pull up laminate floor and it did outstanding job! Used it so long hands went little numb from the high vibration.
works very well
Never had issue with this tool and works great!
