Worth Every Penny!
7 Apr 2014
By Marcher
, Glasgow
"Always thought multi-tools / plunge cutters a waste of money until the day I realised nothing else could cut neat openings where I needed them. Bought for that job and paid for itself in time saved and minimal cost of making good.
Now it comes out for some job or other most weeks; it's versatile, creates minimal mess and as another reviewer said "it pays for itself in stress relief" .
Wish I'd bought one years ago!

Bosch Multi-tool
2 Apr 2014
By OmegaSM
, Bournemouth
"Have not had chance to put this to the 'longevity' test but it is typical of Bosch professional tools - a pleasure to use. Ideal for stripping out rotten soffit boards - used an angle grinder fitted with TC saw blade in the past, always a little worrying! This is so different and will go into much tighter corners. Thoroughly recommended."

All Plumbers should have one
23 Feb 2014
By Splitthumb
, Lincolnshire Wolds
"Despite the title of my review I am not a Plumber.
It is excellent for cutting the tongues on floorboards so this is the reason behind the title as I am a Joiner who has to make good after the rough gits.
This tool has so many uses and is an essential part of any tradesmans tool kit.I find it great for splicing etc.
My only complaint is the price of the Bosch blades.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, Saxton Blades do a much better value equivalent.
Oh and don`t buy it with the box and accessories as most of the supplied tools will not be used,especially the scrapers which can always be made from old blades.

Very useful tool to have
12 Oct 2013
By ellismacbeath
, Dundee
"Used to cut all the nails fastening the frame of a shed I needed to dismantle and remove to another location. Did the job easily. Highly recommended. Also used it for cutting out plasterboard for mounting wall sockets - very versatile tool to have in the box and it seems robust. Blades are expensive!"

By bobtheorganist

"I had a Draper oscillating tool which died on me, so I tried one of these. You get what you pay for, they say, and this is definitely the case wit this! It has already taken quite a bashing and has given no problems at all. It is far better than my old tool, and the Bosch blades seem to have a lot more life in them. With the adaptor provided, you are not just restricted to own brand cutters either. Five stars!"

Amazing
6 Aug 2013
By JustinS
, Bucks
"Bought this tool with £10 off voucher and thought it would come in handy. Had to replace 4 sliding gate guide rollers that were rusted solid. Tried to hacksaw the nylon roller off but that was hard work. Remembered I had purchased the GOP250 and within 5 minutes the nylon cut off to expose metal core where a Vice Grip and a socket removed the old rollers. This tool saved me so much time I cannot praise it enough. This is one of those tools that when needed is just a joy. At under £100 its a steal. Only niggle is the cost of the blades and accessories which are not cheap."

Bosch 250 Watt Multi-tool
20 Jul 2013
By trvlr
, Bromley
"Saw one in use in a video where it was used to cut out part of a rotten door frame; made that such a simple job! Dun a bit more research and viewed a few more videos to see how it can be used. Excellent gadget/tool to have about. Allows some very neat cuts and trimmings, both in hard to reach locations - or on the workbench/workmate etc..
Slight learning curve naturally when first using it - but overall very easy to use; very diverse and flexible tool. It will get a lot of use...
This Bosch unit is not too heavy; fits well in the hand; and not too much vibration. Accessories of course aren't that cheap; and it would seem to be wise both to shop about - but also ensure you always get better/top quality blades, rather than opt for cheaper replacements.
Didn't buy the complete kit with the expensive Bosch "special" storage case; just this Screwfix model: Bosch GOP250CE 250W Multi-Cutter 240VProduct Code: 75197
Likely it will all fit into a simple trough style (with hinged lid) tool box from Screwfix or any DIY store...
Thus far very satisfied with it; but not having had it more than few weeks, can't comment really on reliability. One thing though... I would definitely favour the 250watt model over any lower powered model. Go for the blue version(s) rather than the green. Blue are slimmer in the hand and seem to be harder wearing? Also go for the mains-powered version over battery; unless battery/cordless is really essential. This model comes with an adequate power cord length and thus any extension can be safely added without the connector getting in the way (thinking of typical workshop/diy reel AC extensions).
Overall... a useful and easy to use "toy for the boys and/or girls...", professional or DIY. Or more correctly... a very useful and flexible tool that will soon earn its keep.
And Screwfix's current price is cheapest on the block; on-line vendors various included when one includes the postage cost for on-line buys..."

Great tool but few accessories
15 Jul 2013
By NoName2013
, Berkshire
"The box contains only 2 blades and sanding pad, and if you want to cut the tiles or do something more then that unfortunately you have to buy more blades.
Bosch values the their blades, but as everyone knows there are no ideal conditions in which they were tested, and when you cut something near by the floor or against the wall, there is always some sand or plaster.
Attached the small box for the accessories is very useful.
The most durable blade attached ACZ85 EB - 25m wood cutting against the wall and a few nails 5mm.
AIZ 28EB is great until you hit the sand or plaster (eg near by the door frame) - just once and it's dulled, but the new cuts quickly. It's not a big problem because even the dull burn wood through - just a lot of smell :-)
If you buy ACZ85 RT do not use it to the plaster especially if it is with the addition of gravel as quickly will be destroyed - this is great anyway.
Original blades are expensive but also cheaper fits and are often 3-4 times cheaper, so you better buy some more right away (particularly the narrow blades) - comes the same price as in the original, but in total they will last longer.
This is a great tool but use it only in places no other tools can reach so the blades will last longer.

"cut the plaster coving off my ceiling
easy, would have probably cracked or brought it down using a chisel. the tool gets in spaces you normally can't.
Should have more replacement blades sold with it, as you will blunt one doing a job

"Great for all awkward plunge cuts and trimmings in recesses or semi-finished work where other methods are incredibly tedious, difficult or even impossible.
At the lower end of the power tool price range, getting something good enough for professional use - provided you don't intend to replace your jack saw with this - is exceptionally good value. It's pays for itself in stress relief after a few jobs - and might also enable you to do things on site that you might otherwise have much difficulty with.
Good length lead, 3m long or so. An adjustable dial gives you a 1 - 6 choice of speed. That makes for a good range of control Vs cutting speed if using blades, and with the detail sanding head it is highly useful to have that range of choice on older painted windows and doors at various stages of decrepitude - wish I had it on my palm sander.
It can slow down almost to a crawl on high speeds in 32mm decking if making rip cuts, but that's understandable really. If applied as a trimming or medium-slow cutting tool it will still impress at its ability to sever quite substantial timbers if you have the time, it needs to be moved across and into the cut a lot though to make it through anything over an inch or so, but with chiselling I've cut 8x2 pine with this, right in the middle of a boxed carcass, in a couple of minutes.
It should be as reliable as any similar Bosch power tool - it'll work perfectly for a few years if not overstressed repeatedly and often; it happens to have the same body style and is in the same price bracket as 2 other Bosch products of mine and both worked excellently, but the demands of jobs claimed them both within a year or so, and my overuse (admitted) was still somewhat reasonable. Although that just might be me :D"

"This is the last tool I bought to complete a tricky cut under floorboards that I had to do using a mirror. What a fantastic piece of kit. Used it everyday since purchase. Used to cut lead soil pipe to size, old steel conduit, hole in ceiling for extractor fan. I could go on......you will not be disappointed and find many uses for it."

"Have used this multi-tool virtually every job since purchase and I can honestly say it is my 'best buy' to date. cuts plastics and wood with ease and doesn't heat up too much when using it for a long time.
The only faults I would say is that some of the replacement cutting/grinding heads are overpriced and the tool didn't come with a box as you have to buy this separate at a cost of 40 quid which was a bit poor if you ask me"
