Cordless Oscillating Multi Tool Review
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:48 PM »
Okay, did some extensive research on cordless oscillating multi tools and after several months of testing them out I have purchased the Dewalt 20V...

This thing is lightweight and packs plenty of power.  It was the best feeling tool, feeling like their cordless drills.   I tested the cordless Bosch, Fein, and Makita.  It was close between the Dewalt and Bosch.  Like splitting hairs...but in the end the Dewalt came out on top.

My partner has a Milwaukee. Man do they come in handy.
I really light his. Especially with the small battery.
I also like it because I can use it but I didn’t have to buy it. :)
Have you walked your saw today?

Did the battery platform influence you at all.

I know many people who already are into blue (Bosch), red (Milwaukee) or yellow (Dewalt) platforms use this as an influential factor but i don’t go that route.  I go by what I believe works best for what I need.  I’m not a fanboy to any brand since I have to pay for all my tools.  Most of my saws are Festool and Mafell (tracksaw, jigsaw, Domino XL), routers are Festool and Bosch, sanders are Festool (Rotex 125), 8” jointer a Jet, planer a Dewalt 734,  and drills Dewalt and Milwaukee.
