What should I look for when buying a Cordless Multi Tool?

Cordless Multi Tools are a real ‘all-rounder’ and can be used for cutting, sanding, scraping and rasping.

There are various aspects to consider when choosing a Multi Tool. Among the most important is the Oscillations Per Minute – the number of times the blade moves from one side back to the other. If the speed is too low, the blade will be unable to cut, but if it too high, you could scorch the material you’re working with.

Also look at the oscillation angle; this is how far the blade moves from side to side. The greater the angle, the greater the movement.  Check whether your preferred tool uses a ‘standard’ tool holder or a ‘starlock’, as this will affect which attachments and accessories you can use with your Multi Tool.

Which is better: brushless or brushed Multi Tools?

Brushed motors use carbon brushes to transfer power from the fixed part of the motor to the rotor. This creates a reliable and relatively inexpensive motor, but brushed motors do require regular maintenance, in order to either clean the brushes or replace them as they wear out. A brushless motor, by contrast, uses a magnet mounted on the rotor to generate the power and electrical switching to perform the function carried out by the brushes. The additional complexity of the motor’s working means that brushless motors are usually more expensive than brushed.

Which voltage should I choose?

Our Cordless Multi Tool range includes tools running on batteries from 10.8v through to 18v. Which is right for you will depend on various factors, including compatibility with the other tools in your kit; if you already have several 18v machines from one manufacturer, the batteries will usually be interchangeable.
