I say - not quite as pretty as BOSCH but (less) than half the price, and a couple of quid off at the moment.

Additional Information

Age restricted item.

Please note that the sale of this item is restricted to persons aged 18 years and over.

* Please note item 7114700 has previously been on sale at 31.99."

I can also add that this can use BOSCH tools, and has a speed controller. Needed one for a job today and (deliberately) removed twice as much grout in a quarter of the time compared with doing manually.

Has a big 'manly' handle to let you grip it with both hands (not exactly light - you'll probably need two hands!) but being mains powered, you can use it all day if you need to.

Not too impressed with supplied tools, but will get myself the german jobs when they are in the sale.

any reason I should get the lithium portable one ? - yes Iknow it may be underpowered for some jobs but I'm just a general home use guy so it will prob only be used once in a blue moon and on light dut things.

I have one

I have one of these, and the corded version. Excellent tool, lasts long enough for most jobs, just let the tool do the work and don't press too hard. Pity you can't get spare batteries, unless anyone knows where too?
Xtreme challenge stuff seems to be quite good quality. I got a dremel style multi tool 5 months ago & have used it every other day with car restoration, get quite a bit of work & had no problems at all.
I'd be happy to buy the brand again as I'm more than happy with it.

My *personal* preference tends to favour mains under most circumstances – the motors tend to be more powerful, the machines are generally lighter *however*you’re ‘tied’ to needing mains power, however best of all for me is that the mains is ‘always on’ (or nearly) and that I don’t have to have the presence of mind to charge my batteries the night before.
