Great Tool
The quick change feature to allow the blade to be repositioned it a great feature. As I used it for a few hours today, I rarely had the blade in the same position for more than a couple of minutes. It was easy to adjust the blade for the best position. I picked up a drill at the same time as I bought the oscillating tool so I would have batteries and a charger. I have the 1.5 amp-hour batteries. They seem to last about 8 minutes of continuous hard cutting. The tool will actually do a lot of work in eight minutes. It was taking about 1 to 1.5 minutes to cut a 2x4 stud free from the bottom plate that was attached with 3, 12 penny nails. I was using a Bosch carbide tooth blade and after cutting about 20 studs free, it still looks good and cuts well. The battery charger claims to be a 30 minute charger. That is true if the battery is cool when it is placed in the charger. If the battery is hot from use, it will take it 10 to 15 minutes to cool down before the charger starts. It would take at least 3 of the small 1.5 amp-hour batteries to be able to operate the tool close to non-stop. Even with only two small batteries today, the time to recharge did not slow me down that much. There was always something else I could do while waiting on the charger and most of the time, I did not need to operate the tool nonstop until the battery was discharged. Over all, I am quite pleased with the purchase.

This is my first experience with an oscillating tool. After using it for a few hours today, I wish I had bought one 20 years ago.

Better than expected!
I have used 12v and corded oscillators but wanted a cordless for the convenience yet needed the power of a corded so I opted for the brushless Bosch 18v. I didn't think it would be quite as powerful as a cordless but I was very surprised to find that it is. I use it on various types of materials and it's never met anything it can't handle. With 4.0ah batteries it has a great run time. The blade release is amazing. It's easy, fast and holds blades super tight.

I've had this tool for a couple of years and it's still the beast it was when I first bought it.

Great Tool
I purchased this tool after already having the corded version of another brand. First tool that I have owned where the cordless version of Bosch is more powerful than another brand corded version. It is unbelievable and very easy to operate, change blades etc.

A life saver!
I've had mine for about a year. Great power and battery. This tool saves so much time and trouble. From cutting door casing to cutting a floor AT THE WALL All my jobs are better and easier with this multi tool! The blades don't last too long, but worth it still! The case is nice and it is stackable.

Multi-Pass
The Bosch MXH180BL is a great advance in the multi-tool arena. While I have a corded model it was essential to be unrestrained. Fortunately the advancement in lithium batteries has come far in a few short year. With that benefit you have the same power as a corded tool. Another added bonus is the flush cut ability and easier than ever blade change. It does everything, sands, cuts and cuts again, actually used it to miter frame corners with a corner angle. If you do all kinds of projects this will be your constant go to tool, I can't recommend enough.

Excellent Tool
I own a couple oscillating tools, but the Bosch one is the best. I have put mine to good use so far. I used it to cut out outlet boxes and switch boxes in drywall, during a remodel project. I cut out about 15 boxes, and also used this to trim drywall as well. It works great with a drywall jab saw blade made by another company. The 4.0 AH batteries last a good while before needing a recharge. The 2.0 AH batteries have an OK runtime. But I have found that the added weight of the 4.0 AH batteries makes the tool easier on your hands. I also used the Multi-X to trim molding in quite a few places. It also works excellent for this as well. The one feature that makes this Bosch tool stand out above the rest is the tool-less blade change system. This saved me hours of time, when you need to change the angle of the blade you are using, you can do it in seconds instead of minutes. No fussing with allen wrenches. I wasn't sure if this feature would really save me time, but it sure did. I had been frustrated with another oscillating tool that required an allen wrench for blade changes, and the tool-less blade change feature was a big selling point for me. I also used this for sanding window and door trim, and it excels at this as well. Once you have worn out a corner of the sandpaper, flip the lever and spin the triangle to the next corner. This oscillating tool has become my go to tool for many different things. I absolutely love this thing!

Great work hog
I bought this tool about a year ago and have never been disappointed with it. I am a tile and stone contractor and use it constantly to undercut door casing, cut out
grout to change tile and recently i had to cut back 3/4 inch thick mud on a wall to give clearance for a mirror and it went through it like butter. Ive used it to cut out sections of two xs for pipe clearance rather than drag out my skill and it had no problem with it. It is one tool i can't or won't do with out. I have the other two top brands of tools but i keep going back to my Bosch. I can't praise them enough.
Keep up the good work guys.

I am divorcing my beloved Fine Tool
I am divorcing my beloved Fine Tool, and I am running away with my new Bosch 18V Oscillating tool.

I am a tradesmen, and the more I use the Bosch 18V Oscillating tool, the more my confidence in a battery tool replacing a corded tool grows. The Bosch tool-less blade holder blowwwws the Fine's away in easy of use, and no more release leaver slamming your fingers, and no more HOT plug landing in your hand. As with any continues running battery tool, the batteries don't last as long as a cordless driver, and one has to plan to have full size batteries on hand. I have two 3amp batteries, and I am finding that I have no down time waiting for batteries to charge. On a continues run, the charging battery is good to go, before the one in the tool is spent. But I would recommend the new 4amp batteries if your budget would allow, they are just that much better.

Regarding performance. This unit performs just as good as my old corded Fine Tool. There is no lose in House Power what so ever going to 18V. The new brushless motor runs cool and the chip-set maintains your chosen speed, even under extreme load.
The speed dial goes from a nice slow speed for genital work, to full extreme. There is no feeling that it's sitting the edge of it's power out put, lots of power in reserve.

I didn't think much of the L-Boxx at first, but I'm starting to like it. Lots of room, and I like the extra handle on top. It's too bad their so pricey on their own. I might consider getting some more.

In closing, I no longer see any reason outside of budget to get a corded multi tool. If your on the fence worrying that they might not do the job. Let me tell you, they can, to the level of impressive.

So Far - Like A Boss - Like A Bosch
I had used the Bosch 12v cordless multi tool for years. It has been an excellent tool. I purchased the 18v brushless cordless multi tool a few months ago. It has done a great job so far - I use cordless versions because I use the tools on ladders and hard to reach places. The 18v is a powerful smooth running tool. And with a fully charged battery it runs for a long time. The quick change mechanism is a great design update. The new 18v seems to be as rugged and durable as the 12v version, which is outstanding. As an experienced multi tool user I recommend using Bosch blades; they are of higher quality and will last a lot longer than the ones that are $4 or $5 cheaper. The only flaw is the new case, I am not a fan of Boschs new storage system - thin plastic inserts never belong with professional tools.
