Innovative Features and Benefits
The circular, rotating blade easily powers through materials up to 1/4 inch thick while the AutoSharp blade system keeps the blade sharp for repetitive use. The Power Cutter uses an integrated 3.6-volt lithium-ion battery which can hold a charge up to 18 months, so it's always ready when it's needed. Weighing less than a pound with an ergonomic soft-grip handle, the power cutter is easy to handle and eliminates the fatigue experienced with standard scissors, making it ideal for people with arthritis.

The Power Cutter also incorporates a blade guard to minimize the possibility of accidents, unlike traditional utility knives that can be dangerous. The Power Cutter is incredibly versatile; cutting carpeting and carpet padding, vinyl flooring, wallpaper, and contact paper with ease. The Power Cutter is also perfect for a number of fabrics including leather, suede, canvas, and denim. For arts and crafts, you can cut through card stock, poster, and foam board, even felt. It can also replace scissors for a precise edge when cutting wrapping paper or bubble wrap.

SKIL Smartcharge Battery System
As with all of SKIL's lithium-ion tools, the SKIL Power Cutter features the SKIL Smartcharge System, which allows the tool to be plugged into the charger indefinitely without damage to the battery. A battery fuel gauge located on top of tool indicates that tool is charged and a built-in hang hole makes the tool easy to store in your workshop or garage.

It is a great tool that I use all the time.
Much better than using a razor cutter as I had been, and the way it protrudes makes it work great at the edges of the boxes to cut each side away.
John S. Dean
I highly recommend this to anyone who has the need to cut lots of cardboard around the house.

The product does a great job cutting many things, but can easily choke on two layers of cardboard if it's tilted sideways by a bit. When it doesn't cut, often the blade is a fraction of an inch away from what needs cutting, and it's a feed problem. Keeping it straight helps a lot on thick things, and sometimes, angling the front downwards slightly can get it to bite and go smoothly.

If you are not feeding it something at maximum thickness, and are keeping it straight, it does a fine job.

As for the safety switch, the tool is designed so that if you grab it with one hand, chances are the switch will be a bit forward of where your thumb is likely to end up. You will be a lot less likely to turn it on by mistake while grabbing it, but the trade off is that the button feels a bit forward of where you might expect it. But it's hardly a chore and stretching your thumb forward a fraction of an inch is all it takes.

The safety switch can be pressed from either side, so you can use it with your left or right hand. But if you use your left hand, you can't see the blade area and are more likely to have problems keeping the tool at the correct angle. If you are left handed, it won't be the ideal tool.

Seems overpriced for what it is. Its main design fault is the slow speed of the cutting blade. I bought it for cutting fabric for garment making. Professional versions of similar cutters used in the fashion industry are more powerful and very high speed, allowing cutting around quite sharp curves without nasty jagged edges. So I was disappointed and would not recommend it for any precision work, only as a rough cutter. I would almost go as far as to call it junk at the price of $52. Maybe for $20 it would be OK.

So far this has been a great product that I think anyone who regularly shops here needs to consider. If you use it for nothing else then to cut up the cardboard boxes that your Amazon orders arrive in it will earn it's place amongst your other tools.

Like some here my family does a fair amount of shopping here and the cardboard boxes can pile up. We try to reuse them for other things, but sometimes they just get out of control and pile up. The Multi-cutter has helped handle this most recent episode, making the dispatching of several dozen boxes in various sizes and states of use and abuse a task that took only a few hours of steady work instead of several hours of frustratingly boring work.

In the, roughly, three hours of steady work the battery held out with no cutting problems until near the very end. I do have to say that running it that constantly is probably not recommended as the unit did start to get a little warm there at the end.

As to the auto-sharpener feature this works very well. While cutting through a box from a vacuum cleaner I hit one of those heavy duty industrial staples and nicked the blade in a couple of spots. Thirty minutes worth of work later and the nicks were all but gone. By the end of my work you couldn't see where I had nicked the cutter at all.

The Multi-cutter has a few nice safety features as well. Beyond the sturdy safety guard around the blade there is also a safety button, set up for right and left handed use, that must be pressed before the trigger will engage. The first time or two you use the tool this is going to feel a little awkward, but you'll get used to it.

I had been looking for a tool that would cut carpet and padding without damaging my hands. The Skil Multi-cutter totally fits the bill. It cut through my old carpet like butter, allowing me to remove the pad and carpet in a 14x10 room in small managable load in less than 2 hours.

It holds a charge for more than 2 weeks when not in use and had plenty of power to go after the initial 2 hour use. It requires no maintenance and is solidly built to last.

This product easily deservers 5 stars.

This product is finally shipping from Skil (early August, 2008) after a long anticipated introduction period. It is a good product that performs as well as described in its early advertising. The only criticism I have is that the safety switch is difficult to press if you have anything but a giant's hand. (My hands are quite gigantic, and I have trouble engaging the switch to turn the cutter on with just one hand.) However, with a little practice, you should be able to learn to overlook this one shortcoming.

It does a great job cutting many different materials up to 1/4" thick, including floor tiles and vinyl siding. One of its best features is its lithium-ion battery's long, dependable charge life. I find that this tool is very handy to have around my work shop.

The cutter does exactly what it's advertised to do and beats the heck out of the BD scissors in everyway, except for price of course.

To make consistent straight cuts it helps to tilt the cutter about 5 degrees to the left. If you'll notice the bottom of the unit is already angled about 5 degrees to the blade to obtain this cut naturally. If you try to cut with the blade at a pure 90 degrees to the product being cut then it will try to grab more and pull itself off course from a straight cut. I have also found that lifting it up a tad at times will improve the cutting speed.

From what I've read the people having problems with cutting simply haven't learned to use it at the optimum position. Sadly, the one sheet of instructions is no help in this area. I have cut paper, cardboard, indoor/outdoor carpet and foamboard up to 1/4 inch thick with ease. As far as speed I cut allot of 36" long---1/4" thick foamboard and it takes about 5 seconds to cut that 36 inches. That's plenty fast for me.

There is absolutely zero lateral play in the blade and the cutter has some heft to it, so all this demonstrates quality to me.

Also, replacement blades are now available directly from Bosch/Skil or other retail outlets using part number 1609203W06

My only disappointment is that I hadn't found it earlier.
