" I considered cheaper versions but having read reviews and tried this I am pleased with out turn.
Smooth operation with minimal vibration.
Only used 3 times so too early to comment on reliability.
Great carry bag

Great wee multi cutter
15 Jul 2015
By FranticMartian
, Fife
" Comes with two blade types, sanding pad and several sanders. Can use other manufacturer's replacement blades etc. Great price, seems sturdy (only used four times so far but confident it will last). Comes with a bag which is about three times bigger than the cutter itself, so you could use it for carrying other tools you might need for the job. Long cable as well. "

Nifty tool

" Very useful tool after you have bought the basics.
Cutters very sharp and tackle oak easily. Gearbox does get warm after 10 mins use so needs a cooling off period

Fantastic tool
20 Jun 2015
By Asme
, Coates
" I have been thinking of getting a multi tool for ages. Being a DIYer I couldn't justify the high costs of other tools. The reviews of this tool were good so I bought one. Should have got it earlier.
I can't comment on the reliability as I've only just bought it but the tool looks well made and I have every confidence that it will perform well for years to come. "

Brilliant piece of kit
11 Jun 2015
By GOGuy
, Gloucestershire
" The concept is brilliant, regrardless of make or model. I've hankered after one for some years but couldn't justify one. However, I've injured my right elbow in the middle of a DIY job requiring lots of cuts in plasterboard. Cutting with a 'Stanley' knife really aggravates the injury, and a multi-cutter was the only powered alternative. Lots of long cuts would probably kill a cheap battery-powered one so I went for mains-powered.
I'm generally a fan of Bosch power tools, but the cheapest Bosch (GOP2000) was 25% more and came without any sort of box/bag, so I bought this Erbauer instead. The bag is bigger than necessary, so it will hold an extension lead and other tools as well. The little accessory box for accessories is a nice touch, it would probably hold a complete selection of blades in addition to the accessories supplied.
The Erbauer has chopped up an 8 x 4 sheet into smaller pieces and made lots more cuts to make the pieces fit. It's no quicker than doing it by hand with a knife but much less hard work.
It inevitably makes quite a lot of (very fine) dust so wearing a dust-mask is an absolute must, but unlike rotating tools, it doesn't fling it all into the air so the mess is fairly localised.
It cuts and trims uPVC waste and rain-water goods quickly and very neatly with minimal mess; much faster and easier than by hand and could be safely used on guttering/pipes in situ while standing on a ladder.
Tested on hardboard - good for precise, clean cuts but a jig-saw or hand-saw would be faster.
Its unique capability is flush cuts in awkward places and plunging cuts that are almost impossible with any other tool, hand or power.
ABS or Acrylic sheet is a no-no as the blade quickly gets hot enough to make the plastic stick to it - the same problem as with an electric jig-saw.
My one criticism is that the plug is fitted with 13A fuse. As the motor is rated at 250W (1.1A @ 230V) and the cable is 2 x 0.75mm2 (6A max), a 13A fuse provides no useful protection - in case of an internal short-circuit, the motor or cable would probably melt first. A 3A fuse is the appropriate standard fuse.
On free delivery, ordered about 4:30 p.m., it arrived first thing next morning - an hour before the text from Parcel Farce telling me it would be delivered between 08:45 and 09:45!
Incidentally, a proper printed manual is included (in a pocket of the bag). Good idea to download it too in case the paper one gets lost!
I've given it 3 stars for reliability because after just 2 day's use it's too early to tell - but the blade shows little sign of wear after a couple of hours cutting mostly plasterboard. "

Excellent piece of kit
27 May 2015
By GazTech
, North West England
" The Erbauer 250W multicutter feels nice and solid in the hand and offers good control at low speed.
It is a doddle to set up and use straight from the robust tool bag provided.
Its first task was cutting out 8 double gang back boxes in 10mm thick veneered chipboard (walls in pre-fab office modules) and it completed the task neatly with no fuss using the variable speed control, 6 for fast plunge cutting and 1 for precision scoring and cutting. It saved only little time over using a pad saw but saved a lot of energy making a physical job effortless. My sceptical colleague borrowed it in between my use to shave off and cut timber around a newly fitted door pack and cut out for hinges on the new door; he was highly impressed and said he will be purchasing one also.
All in all an invaluable tool which you will wonder why you hadn't bought one sooner!

Great piece of kit!
26 Apr 2015
By Breq

" This Erbauer multi-cutter is a brilliant piece of kit - why weren't they available years ago?? The whole concept of the lightly vibrating blade is good, and this particular one is well-made, solid, and well-balanced. The price is really good, too.
So far, I've only used for one job, which it probably wasn't designed for - I needed to remove a holly bush from near a wall, and I couldn't get any other tool in. This gadget cut through branches really easily. Now I'll get on with the jobs I have planned confident in the knowledge that I have a good tool. "

Excellent quality tool

" Bought this to replace a more expensive Bosch version as the latter broke after a few years of occasional use! The Erbauer feels much more solid and built to a higher standard (the gear head is metal, whereas a lot of the competitor's models in this price range are all plastic!).
It performs just as well as the Bosch did and should outlast it too!
The storage bag it comes in is much nicer to use than a flimsy plastic case and even the supplied accessories are in a flip top box instead of just loose in a plastic bag.
Top marks for this tool Erbauer! "

" After struggling for two days chipping away at grout with other useless tools bit the bullet and bought this little beauty. The 2 yr guarantee is what swung it for me from the others.
Five hours later (with the right attachment) bathroom de grouted.
Don't struggle anymore, get one in your tool kit.
