Milwaukee 2426-22 M12

This dynamo led the class in run time and aced our cutting tests. Its soft-start feature provided great control, but we were frustrated by the slow two-piece screw-and-washer blade clamp and the stiff variable-speed dial. The narrow body, fine for small hands, could still use side cushioning to protect work surfaces. The kit is limited but does include an adapter to accept other brands' accessories.
About $149; 2.1 pounds; Milwaukee
