I've been looking for a corded version of these and theyre generally £30 cheapest. cordless are much more expensive so this cordless version from Aldi ticks all the boxes for me and comes in a handy storage box. might not be for everyone but for light general DIY I can't imagine you can go wrong with this. available from the 11th June instore (as they are ooo online now).

Perfect hubby wanted a new one

I thinks its also worth pointing out that the packs of Workzone multi tool blades are pretty good value as well and fit most other makes. Works out around a couple of quid a blade after you discount the obligatory scraper that comes in each pack - and they're better quality than the 20 packs etc from Amazon!

I have their corded one and it's very good, solid tool, this is hot

I hope my wife likes her new one too.

Lovely Birthday present.

How can you order a spare battery?

interesting. Wonder if this would be any good to clean out old cement grout from a tiled floor?

With the right blade i would think so.

I'm not sure you can. Over the years we've went through a few of the thirty quid (ish) multi tools and what ultimately lets them down is the battery starts to go and you can't get a replacement.

About a year ago we got a Makita cordless multi tool which uses their standard fitting batteries - suited me as we've got a Makita drill plus several batteries. Significant difference in power (18v versus 10.8v) and easy to swap over for a fully charged battery. If you've got Makita batteries and charger, the older model is now well under £50:

Not taking anything away from this deal, used this type for years and really no complaints other than the battery issue, and battery life latterly.

Thanks, ordered one. Spare battery would be nice if reasonably priced.

I feel the same way about battery life. The capacity is low, so only good for shorter jobs and you can't seem to get a spare. Good deal for smaller jobs though.
Hot for what it is.

there's a picture on Aldi's site of it being used for exactly this

It says suitable with Bosch accessories, so not bad if you can't find the official blades. hot!

I feel that a multitool is one of those appliances which is best as 240V mains powered. Some of its uses will be OK on battery, but most of the time my Bosch Multitool would not have had the power to to the job I required unless it was mains.

had one of these and to be fair it was a waste of time, battery runs out in minutes and takes forever to charge, buy a makita for £60 and a charger and non oem batter for £60 and it will outlast 10 of these guaranteed, all with more power longer run time and much much quicker charging time.

I have this, it's very useful and really quite powerful and great for small diy jobs that don't take hours. if you intend to use it for large jobs then you likely need a wired one. cant even comment on how long it runs for, I just use it until it need a recharge but definately worth the price.

would like a corded version if anyone spots a good deal

Thanks

Excuse my ignorance, but what sort of jobs would this be useful for?

​Removing grout between tiles, is one job it can do.

Could buy two so you get a spare battery and a spare set of attachments and charger etc.

They work ok as a sander. They're the best tool available as far as I'm aware for removing grout. They can be used for really short cuts into wood around pipes and architrave, not for cutting laminate like in the also photos.
People complaining about cordless being no good for big jobs, I'm not sure what sort of jobs you mean. They're only supposed to be used on quick little jobs. If you've not used one before you should be aware that anything more than about 5 minutes use is going to be pretty painful on the hands and ears.
I use an 18v cordless one and find for most jobs i have it on about 2/3 speed setting so i imagine a 12v would be ok however i haven't actually used a 12v one.
Most of these things come out of the same factories so if you look around on eBay you'll eventually find a battery that fits, albeit maybe with different branding​
*Also good for cutting into floorboards to access pipework or electrics below

I used my 240 volt one to cut a 10" by 16" square out of a steel decorative surround. I always use ear plugs. I could have used a jigsaw, but the multitool did the it and also sanded all the wooden worktops in my kitchen. I think of it as like a tiny circular saw, but without the danger.

The battery being 2/3 the voltage doesn't mean the speed will be 2/3; the motor will be designed to operate at a lower voltage.

No need to brag

Anyone have any professional or frequant use with this cordless multi tool? Considering buying one and dont want to spend a huge bunch on a cordless. What's the battery life like? How easily does it cut through things? Where do i get replacement tips and batteries for it? Any advice appreciated, thanks.

in the product description. is says 3-5 hrs to charge. on the box is says 60 mins. anyone which is correct ?

For £29.99 this is a steal! I've got two mains myself but bought this also. Shall use this as a mobile sander and my mains for cuts etc. Cannot go wrong at this price, ordered two (Father's Day present) and one for myself. Good find especially as it comes with decent attachments also. Heat added

Worth a note that they ship with Hermes and mine arrived today with a broken plastic front. I just dropped into my local store and they swapped it out no questions. Also picked up the extra kit of blades since people in previous posts commented on their quality. I have to say that the ease to swap out blades is increddible with this machine. its just a simple lever that opens and locks the blades. Not run it yet to try the battery but looking at the battery, it looks identical to the Aldi handheld drill so might be cross compatible. Anyone got both tools to test compatibility?

3 year warranty... Just read the manual battery and movable parts have 6 months so really it's a 6 month return to factory in Germany warranty at your cost. I know it's cheap but these warranties are getting ridiculous might as well put 100 year warranty on the box then exclude everything.

Seems like a solid device though just a shame has no backup support.

This tool is legendary, done sanding scraping and cutting so far. Took all the tanking up in a wet room no problem. The battery only lasts couple hours but the 1hour charge makes it bearable. Tool is a must have
