I've already got a multifunction tool and its bigger than this :D

Can you get a grout removal bit for these?
#5
Just to let you know that these tools are RUBBISH for sanding paintwork. I made that mistake.

Don't do it. Buy a paint removal wheel for your drill instead.

As a plunge cutter it works quite well though.

Hot.

No you get real, its not a bosch so why compare, next you'll be saying don't buy a merc because a lada is cheaper and does the same thing


If there's a 3yr warranty, why worry? Or are you suggesting (against all real world experience) that the bosch will last 20 years whereas the aldi one will only last 4? Or does the bosch (mercedes) have some luxury feature which the aldi (skoda) doesn't? Re quality, I've had, I have bosch "things" and the quality is not what (perhaps) it once used to be...

Your having a laugh.
I bought an Aldi Electric Chainsaw (manufactured in Germany) and it is much better tool than the Bosch one that I have used.

what if brand C is cheaper than this ?


then I'd like to know about it on HUKD and I'll make my own mind up as to its quality/warranty/features/etc relative to brands A and B (possibly D-Z too) - get real, if someone's on the lookout for this kind of multitool then this Aldi/Skoda version is a good deal... only IMHO, of course

Looks good. Not available until 20th Oct though (best if OP puts that in the headline before people waste a journey and vote cold).

Don't know about the warranty of Aldi, but Lidl no thanks, I bought a rice cooker with 3 years warranty,after 3 months the the cooker not work anymore, I took it back to Lidl and they said I should contact the company, they sent me a label to return, after few months I sent a letter ask about this matter but on reply, and nothing happen since, this was two years ago.
after this I never buy items with warranty from Lidl.

if you can make your own mind up no need for the op to do it for you


good grief, is it so difficult to understand: i need the op to make me aware of the DEAL - I, and others, will determine if it's HOT or not by voting on it...
what is the point? seems to be the right moniker for you, since you apparently have such trouble seeing the point...

Nor is it a Fein...

Doesn't make it any less of a great deal, well worth the asking price. Also you can get the adaptors to fit different blades to different machines on ebay.

I bought a sort of similar tool from either Lidl or Aldi made by Park tools, a electric chisel/scraper and its one of my most used tools. Fantastic value. I doubt this compares to Bosch though. Bosch have their own range of basic chinese quality tools under their Skil brand and I would guess this tool would be at that level.

If you buy a product with a 3 year guarantee in a shop you are entitled to take it back to that shop for the 3 years if it goes wrong. They may try to get you to send it off but they have no right to force you to do so. Clearly if they have instructed you to send it away to some third party who has not repaired and returned the product they are at fault and you would easily win a small claims procedure on that basis against them.

Heinz Baked Beans Fridge Pack (1kg) - £1.09 @ Co-op

Voted cold on these beans. They're not Bosch.
#18
I don't get what the scraper does mechanically can someone explain?
#19
I have the Bosch equivalent, which is a great tool, but I've also bought Aldi tools in the past and they have always been good quality and worked well as well as having the bonus of 3 yr warranty, which you dont get with the big brand names.
This is half the price of the Bosch and therefore an excellent deal. Voted hot
#20
I don't get what the scraper does mechanically can someone explain?

The scraper blade and the other tools oscillate from side to side about 1.4 degrees at very high speed 15,000 to 21,000 rpm, so just under 3 degrees, total movement this gives the multi tool the ability to cut sand and scrape etc.

Edited By: Midway on Oct 14, 2011 08:08
#21
I think it oscillates up and down, I too wonder how good this might be, is it meant for scraping paint or wallpaper?

I do like the plunge cutter though, very useful when cutting close to a wall/floor etc.

As for Aldi/Lidl quality, they are fine for the DIY'er, if you want Bosch/Makita etc, go pay those prices and be a professional.

I've never had an issue with their warranties on items (not that I've had many issues, a broken zip and something else which my menory doesn't care to remind me!), either refunded by post or returned to store (after calling CS to find out what they wanted me to do).

I see, so I wonder what sort of things this would be useful for scraping. Surely not wallpaper it is too small, tiling grout maybe?

Tsk Tsk Tsk so much arguing about who said what if you dont have the good grace to accept that somebody has posted a deal for others to make a decision then you should be here. Grow up and use the site for what it is intended ( or my dad who is bigger than your will come and bash you)
#24
This is surely worth the money even if you were to just use it as a cutter, same as a cast cutter. Safe cutting is the way forward. A Fein is over £200 so this must be good value. Aldi stuff is good quality, usually has a no quibble type returns policy and normally comes with a manual that includes re-order details for parts. Nice
[helper]#25
I have the Bosch. If you regularly do DIY these come in very handy for some awkward jobs (eg door trims or plunge cutting skirting in-situ) but the sanding function is very poor compared to orbital sanders. Buy it for the cutting but not for the sanding......

it's maybe okay for you to say it's not a bosch but what about all the people out there that can't really afford to spend that money on a bosch one so they then go for this and it has warranty so i would say its worth that money if you were needing/looking for one.

In my experience Aldi tools are very good value.. always cheaper and sometimes better than "name" ones. The 3 yrs guarantee is also a bonus. voted hot.

Ps.Glad to see the Troll is being ignored.

How well will this tool be supported, ie for new blades, sanding pads etc.... or can you use Bosch parts on on this?

Well the Wiki link in post #33 has a Bosch universal adaptor and lists several other brands, but I cannot see the brand name of the Aldi one to judge whether it is truly 'universal'.

OK the brand seems to be WorkZone, and isn't listed on the Bosch 2608000468 packaging, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work on it as I presume Workzone is actually made for Aldi by someone else, and may be one of the other brands listed.

NB It can be had for £5.75 from Fleabay.

You were done. Your contract is with Lidl, not with the company. It is up to Lidl to replace/refund. If they want to send it off to some company to be not fixed, that's up to them. You should have got Trading Standards on the case (though my local office was fecking useless when I found a huge metal clip in a tub of Tesco cottage cheese... sorry, OT.)
#35
I'll defo check this out. I too have the Bosch unit and has been an excellent buy. As others have stated the blades are a bit on the expensive side but there are more manufacturers producing compatible blades now so not such an issue. I recently bought a case from Amazon with compatible blades - not the same quality as the bosch ones and slightly smaller in dimensions but at around £25 for 9 blades was worth a punt.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002SHR3MQ

As far as this deal goes I agree with many previous posts in that generally Aldi tools have been of a good quality. This looks a great wee bit of kit and for the plunge cutting ability alone are worth the purchase.

Nice spot OP.

You just come on here to sabotage other peoples deals which might be of interest to somebody else. Why don't you get out and find some deals of your own and enlighten us with your wisdom when you have done something constructive and not destuctive. In other words you should get out more.

whatsThePoint you are a troll , simple , pretty much like your self

"next you'll be saying don't buy a merc because a lada is cheaper and does the same thing" :: last time i looked both ran on fuel and got you from A to B , both are equally capable of doing the EXACT same job one just costs more than the other , your choice of brand is just that YOUR choice and has nothing to do with capability or use. The price in this case also include a 3yr warranty something that the vast majority of brand names are too scared to do because even "top" names know their equiptment is built pretty cheaply.

My best m8 is a "chippy" his work toolbox uses many different brands , why not just one ? the most expensive , because he has REAL experience of using the tools in a REAL enviroment.

"by your logic every deal should have a price comparison" Well DUH !!!!! this is HOTUKDEALS a site that gives you the cheapest deals on items of course there should be a comparison otherwise the site wouldnt exist , how stupid ?.

TROLL .......

From my own personal experience aldi suck with warrantys, when the time comes to take it back if it brakes, the company that suppliers them will be none exsistant!

I baught http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tevion-dvd-multimedia-micro-system-270559#comments nearly 3 years ago, it broke rougly 5 months ago called the helpline number, the number was dead, called another number being told they would call me back, but no one called, went into the aldi store where i got it and they couldnt care less and they told me to call tevion again, found someone who knew something about it and turned out it went into liquidation and tevion had nothing to do it with. So i wouldnt count aldi's warranty for ****.
