I have recently reviewed the Bosch PMF 180 E

This is an awesome piece of kit and I know that some members own one already and so it can be discussed here :wink:

Here is the link to my review-

Was £60 in my local B&Q but I've not seen any recently.

B&Q seem to be doing some odd things with there power tools. You'd get a period of glut of a few types, especially Ryobi and Bosch and knock down prices then once they are sold you won't see the item again. Only the Bosch Li-on screwdriver left of the recent offers

3 year warrenty with a fein multimaster..........it had better be good, the price i payed for it :lol:
They have improved the clamping on this new model. I have used this tool constantly for 1.5 years now, so can say its reliable.

Just for a comparison to the bosch............

You get more goodies with the Fein - and it has a better case as well :thumbright:

not sure if those extras are worth £100 though :lol:

I contacted Fein UK when I was looking at buying one and asked if I could get a discount, if I was to review it on the site etc.

I never even got a reply and so that made me favour the Bosch one.

Many websites do not reply when you contact them, I think most of the emails go to a member of staff with not much sense and they never actually get to the person that they should.


For the money the Bosch one is great :wink:

I think the Green Bosch is actually 2 years standard, not 1 year, in fact.

I have never had a Bosch tool fail (prob says a bit about how much I use them :oops: )

Just out of interest, came across this Bosch promo

They could of done a proper promotional video :sad:

I used mine the other day for sanding as the girlfriends front door was sticking badly. I sanded a little paint from the inside of the frame and it removed it with ease. Much better than a delta sander :thumbright:
