The capable 5-amp variable speed motor offers a maximum cutting speed of 3000SPM. This is enough for a wide range of common cutting tasks and also allows you to set an appropriate speed for different materials and applications. Being a corded model, you will need to have access to a 120 volts power outlet, but the power cable is long enough to afford you reasonable flexibility and freedom.
The arched handle is quite comfortable and will allow you to work for extended sessions without blistering your hands. The control levers and buttons are all well accessible and the design feels solid and sturdy, unlike most other models at this price.
This particular model comes with 4 orbital settings and a CurveControl both of which work together to make your cutting experience straightforward. You can make customized settings to the orbit to enable you to make complex cuts through tougher and more demanding materials.
As earlier mentioned, the basic tool comes with a single blade, so if you need an additional blade, you might want to buy as a package or invest in separate blades. The model is compatible with the T and U shank blades and changing them is no hassle at all. It comes with a keyless blade clamp which allows you to swap the blades on demand without needing any tool.
You will able be able to make accurate bevel cuts up to 45-degree angles in either direction which expands the range of applications this model can handle. To users who are on budget but still don’t want to compromise the quality of their work, this seems like a perfect option.
