The Dremel Multi Max MM45

If you’re looking for one tool that can cut drywall, metal, wood, and more then the multi tool is it.

Oscillating multi tools are one of my favorite tools because they do so many things.

Today we take a look at the Dremel Multi Max MM45. It boasts a new 5.0 Amp motor with QuickLock release.

But can it get the job done? We did tests so you can see for yourself.

Let’s dive in.


Testing the Dremel Multi Max MM45

What kind of projects can the Dremel Multi Max handle?

Cutting drywall for electrical outlets, cutting laminate flooring, cutting copper or PEX or PVC or ABS pipes, cutting door jambs, sanding, grout removal…the list goes on.

Like I said earlier, multi tools are awesome. They’re the Swiss Army knife of power tools.

Each project requires a different accessory. For example, the carbide grout blade is fantastic for grout removal.

And the Jab Saw accessory cuts drywall around electrical outlets.

I ran tests to see how the Dremel Multi Max would perform – watch our video to see it in action and what’s in the kit

What’s Next

Dremel has a ton of different tools beside the Multi Max. If you’re into wood projects – like building a rustic cooler – their tools are a big help.

    Jeff you forgot a very importing neg point with this tool that it that it only uses Dremel brand blade fit in the tool and they are higher cost and not as good quality as Rockwell and other brands. Also the performance is not any better than Rockwell or Ridgid or even Dewalt i know i own all three. You should look more in to this before posting a video.

  2. Thanks Tomm for your feedback. I can’t say whether it’s better or worse than any competing brand. Nobody can really say that because it would take a lot of real world experience with all the different brands. As such, we explore the tool, do the tests, and let the viewers determine if they want to buy it. Plus, a homeowner may not need all the power required in the different more expensive options that a contractor requires.

    I have a battery powered model by Ryobi. More and more I realize it is probably the single most versatile tool I have.

    1. Totally agree Tony, love my multi-tools. They always save the day!!
