WOOD magazine review

Best cordless model overall

Review Summary

This tool best walks the line between working fast, being accurate, and being easy to use. It showed the least amount of vibration of any model we tested, yet it cuts nearly as fast as the best corded model. It runs on a 12-volt lithium-ion battery pack that held a charge longer than any other in our test, and there's a charge-level indicator on the tool that allows you to know just how much is left in your battery's tank before you climb a ladder or shinny into a crawlspace.
Its compact grip proved easy to use and comfortable for hands of all sizes. It works with Dremel branded accessories (using an adapter) as well as its own line.

The Bosch is exactly what these tools should be

Review Summary

I performed all of the head-to-head reviews in the recent shootout of multitools. The Bosch, head and shoulders above the rest, knew what it was trying to achieve and did it with aplomb. There were no if's, and's or but's with this tool. It performed very well. The Bosch-branded cutters are among the better options out there, albeit a bit more expensive than other brands' accessories. When given the choice do reach for the Bosch accessories.
