when you can't justify a blue cordless one . heat

Nah no way it has a plastic part in the gearbox that fails. Spend once and get the gop 250w as it's on offer at screwfix for £90.

Love my blue battery version, one of those tools you wish you had bought years ago.

Something else Tha I don't need but now want thanks to hukd again oO

Thanks couldn't find it when searching

Good price but these are poor quality. Search some of the forums. I had one and the armature broke. Apparently a very common problem - they shake themselves to pieces. Bought a replacement one which lasted 15 mins. Useless. Might be worth a punt at the price but be warned.

What do people end up doing with these 'multifunction' tools?
I assume they are great for cutting inaccessible nails in stud work, but I can't really think of much else that isn't done much better by a couple of other £20 tools

Thanks. Bought. Hot!

If you ever have to remove a broken window in a wooden frame especially if its double glazed with Butyl putty, the mutlitool will get it out in one piece in a couple of minutes. Without it the window has to be removed with a hammer, and then the mess on the frame cleaned up with a chisel.
They cut skirtings & architraves for wood flooring they'll even cut a floorboard without needing a floorboard saw.

A very useful tool to have.

Just used the blue one to cut a little bit of skirting board to fit the bookcase, would of been pretty awkward with a saw unless I removed the skirting altogether.

One of those tools that can save you a lot of hassle and plenty of uses for it.

*not a Bosch salesman.

Thanks both - that does seem useful. I've needed to do that with flooring before and used a chisel which wasn't ideal.

They are great tools when installing bathrooms, cutting out the vanity units and concealed cistern units

I was thinking about getting one of these to cut out a section of skirting to put in sliding wardrobe doors. How neat did you find it cut the skirting Sackboy? Looks neat in the pic but didn't know if you'd finished it with a chisel?

Great tool has so many uses. Sander not so much as the velcro likes to melt when used in tight spaces. As a cutter its amazing, used it to cut skirting, plasterboard for a light switch made the job so easy and accurate.

You can make an incredibly neat cut with the right bits. I tend to start with the round cutter to get a good starting line then finish with a plunge cutter when taking out sections of skirting. Don't by cheap bits, buy Bosch.

Yeah

Absolute brilliant tool for the tradesmen.

Mine is a FEIN and cost me £180 afew years ago, then Bosch, Dewalt & the various clones were not about.

With mine it comes with a loads & loads of accessories and a metal case, don't regret buying it

Great tool but go for Bosch blue - either mains or battery - and try to get a bundled accessory pack as the blades etc. can be very expensive.

Cheaper in b&q with code CLUBF41B0. Get it for 47.

Surprised that the product has plastic gearing. Many of the low cost Chinese stuff often used for shop brands has sintered or powder metallurgy parts for gearing with plastic just used for holding in place. However its clear that Bosch are now using lower quality Chinese manufacturer's for their green range where as previously they used them only for their skill range of tools. Some also just seem to be Chinese products assembled in Europe typically Hungary. Not convinced by Bosch quality nowadays but normally physical inspection of a tool instore gives you a pretty good idea of overall quality. Better still reviews of end users.

You read now of Bosch mains drills failing on first use but my old Bosch drill over 30 years old is still going strong (made in Sweden not Germany).


nice tool for small/medium jobs. very noisy though

Green Bosch are Poor quality had the 190e and it suddenly stopped working

It's a sleeve to connect the motor to the gearbox. I guess they have to cheap out on them or they would never sell the blue tools!

Wow looks like its almost designed to fail.

What a POS. I don't think this is a common problem on many of these oscillating multi-tools. I've got a old parkside tool that I've used as a scraper mainly and never had a problem (much abused) and its just a generic chinese tool. I've got a 12V Wolf tool that I've used a bit and more recently I bought the maplins offer for £9 after cashback. Einhell model and that seems well built. I've cut some wood to size and some soft metal pipes with no problem. Wouldn't surprise me if this was a Bosch issue only perhaps caused by trying to lower sound values or something. It seems an un-necessary part.

Surprising what you use them for. I laid 18mm flooring on top of old flooring and because we have some curved walls instead of trying to remove the 9" skirts and risk breaking them i used the multitool to cut the skirts so the flooring fit under them.
Also use them for cuts on plasterboard (Cutting out socket holes in the board) and a whole host of other jobs.

It should be in everyones toolbox/Shed

Can't comment on the quality of this item, but generically, these are great devices - use for cutting narrow slices off otherwise inaccessible trim, with appropriate sanding head, provides an ideal platform for detail sanding, with the "grout remover" tool, nothing else comes close to being able to cut dead/discoloured grout from between tiles.

Super useful tools, but if you can justify getting a battery version, then it's a whole lot more flexible.


I paid £85 for a Makita DTM50Z, which is a lot compared to this, but then I have the impact driver and hammer drill that use the same batteries.
Not having that cord in the way was probably worth the extra £35 over the tool's lifetime.

If you'll never need a cordless drill/driver, then yep, get this.

One of my favourite tools. Bought a year ago and thrashed it. Even if mine fails, then I'd understand because it's taken a beating. Mainly used it on flooring, skirting boards and architraves but it's used on a lot of other jobs.

Very good tool as i have one , but you can get one in Aldi for £19.99 with 3 year warranty and its more powerful

I have the blue cordless and I'd rather have got this.... The blue one weighs a lot (depending on battery size) and is way noisier than the corded one

Buy a cheaper one from Aldi. My Bosch multiool gave up at 13 months old with hardly any use. Luckilly it had a 2 year guarantee but for its original price it shouldnt have given up with little to no use. Very handy thing though for cutting under skits to get a good look when laying laminate (rather than god awful cardboard edge strips).

Good deal

Looks the same as the Einhell tool that was on offer for £10 at Maplins. Probably available under many brand names its just a chinese product rebadged.

well what ever it is its lasted amazingly for me and the mates that bought one!
