What I dislike about this tool is the on/off switch. It is so bad that I could see someone having an accident with it. The switch is a slippery piece of plastic that you have to pull to turn it on and it's not easy to get a grip on.
I also don't like the cheesy plastic case. The mfg. should include a metal case or at a minimum a quality plastic case.
I haven't had great luck with the bits (they always seem to break).
Even though there are a couple negative things about this tool, I would definitely buy it again. It has become indispensable to me and gets used regularly in renovating apartment units.
I used the cut-off tool to cut stainless steel and iron! The Dremel would've made me wait 20 times longer and with a dozen more of frustrations. The Rotozip does have some flaws, but not enough to render it useless. The head-attachment for cutting, etc. has a poorly designed spline gear. The gear that you insert into the collet to use the head-attachment "creeps" up and chews into the plastic of the head-attachment. Luckily Rotozip sent me a new head to use.
Sometimes the collet doesn't squeeze the spline gear enough, so removing discs or pads can be cumbersome. The adjustable air vents always close up on me. This is caused by the excess vibration when cutting metal, etc.
The built in LEDs are extremely useful, especially in hard to see areas. The LEDs light up the work surface, but only when using the spiral saw bits.
Trigger is very easy to use, much easier to use than my pneumatic cut off tool!
I was skeptical at first... especially with the circle and Zip-Mate attachments, but both work amazingly well and are easy to use. The Zip-Mate is incredibly handy and does just about anything an angle-grinder can do.
My only complaints are with the switch, as mentioned below, and the cost of the accessories. The switch turns on and off easily if you're not careful. Also it occasionally sputters in trigger operation mode. The cost of the proprietary accessories is annoying. And some bits and wheels wear out quickly. But overall, this tool is well worth the price.
