Excellent Bit of Kit
23 May 2015

" I would recommend using this for more delicate work, The battery life is poor but having two batteries gets around this, For Prolonged and heavier work i would recommend using the mains version, Otherwise well worth having in your tool kit. "

Erbauer cordless multitool
28 Nov 2013
By Neal
, Newbury
" Had this unit for nearly 2 years and I use it everyday for a multitude of jobs.
Batteries don't last forever but it's a compact tool and you should expect to have to charge it often if you use it all day.
Other than that it's a brilliant bit of kit and well worth the price. "

Super wee gadget!
1 May 2015
By Trog
, Hebrides
" Bought for use on the boat, where we have no mains power. Two batteries were essential and that was part of the attraction. Yesterday we used cutting tool to remove fibreglass from around bolts that we needed to undo and scraper to remove old deck paint. Also used sander for small areas of marine ply and I'm about to use it on teak handrails. The ability to rotate the sandpaper if it wears unevenly is a bonus - the sanding head is symmetrical - good bit of design. We've also made up a polishing pad for the glassfibre hull by using felt table-protector offcuts; the felt sticks to the Velcro on the sanding head. "

indispensable tool
21 Apr 2015
By DrSash
, Cheltenham
" Very useful tool unrestricted by cord. Have used it extensively for last 3 months. Like all multitools demanding on battery energy. I have the erbauer drill/driver set so have 4 to swap between tools which helps. Also fast recharge. Would give 5 stars if compatible batteries could be purchased in future. "

A good tool for the money
20 May 2014
By contentdelivery

" The tool itself is perfectly capable of light to medium works but after a month of sporadic light (mainly plasterboard pocket cutting) use the two original batteries failed to charge once they had drained through use - Both of these have been exchanged with the new ones currently working OK but it does leave some doubt as to a possible fault with some battery packs.

Good but not great
14 Nov 2014
By MarkSMG

" I bought this multi-tool out of necessity for a job and have been in love with the multi-tool idea ever since. I was going to buy a Makita corded but noticed this and thought I would give it a try. Now for a DIY user I would say its ideal, for someone in the trade I would advise you to avoid it. Screwfix product support team say the battery should last up to an hour, during normal light use (cutting 3mm ply) it died after 15-20 mins.
As a test I removed the blade and left it running with a battery that was fully charged, (leaving it charging for 6 hours as per Product Support recommendation) Keep in mind no blade, no load, just left running. The battery died in 17 minutes.
To sum up, for a DIY'er its probably ideal but to all professionals out there I would avoid it.
Pro's
Cordless Li-Ion for £100
Comes with blades and sanding pad included
Pretty decent carry case
Lovely to hold and use
Light weight and low vibration
Con
Poor battery life. "

excellent tool useless battery
18 May 2014
By nene50

" The tool is very good but is let down by rubbish batteries. The first tool, one of the batteries stopped working and would not charge.
Replacement works better but the batteries only last a few minutes under load.

Was great for a year or so
5 Feb 2015
By wac111

" Had this for just over a year and was quite happy with it.
The battery's didn't seem to last long but you got two and the charge quite quickly.
I paid £99 for this and would have expected a longer lifespan than a year.

Very Poor performance
6 Nov 2013
By Paul124
, Hampshire
" Thought this would be a handy tool to have in the collection however only had the tool for 2 days and it died cutting through plaster board !!
Kept cutting out. Took back for a refund and bought a Bosch with a power lead. Much better.
