6300-01 Multi-Max Review
It's smaller size makes this tool ideal for working in tighter spaces
Despite having a smaller motor than the other tools in this review (1.5 amp/hr vs. 2.3 amp/hr), the Dremel never felt underpowered. It tackled the same plunge cuts and rigorous grinding as the larger tools. I noticed that the tool heated up quickly, though, perhaps because vents for the motor are easy to cover with your hand accidentally during use. The Multi-Max is shorter than the other models, and the smaller size makes it the best choice for working in tight spaces. I liked the soft-start feature, which eased me into the 85-db whine of the motor. (This was the loudest tool I tested.) I am a bit disappointed with the cord; even though it was only 5 ft. long, it still managed to tangle itself constantly. I also was discouraged to find that this tool is not compatible with other manufacturers’ blades. The case, which is made of molded plastic and offers accessory organization, is average fare. If I were looking to spend around $100 for a multitool, I’d most likely pass by this tool in favor of the only slightly more expensive Rockwell SoniCrafter kit.
