I am pretty stuck on which multi tool to buy. I would have thought the battery ones are a bit slow and frustrating?

There's an AEG 12v at £90
or a corded Works at £80
or a corded Makita at £120 (no blades)

I would prefer the convenience of the AEG - I have a couple of batteries already. Just a bit worried about slow cutting speeds.

Have to leave at 8.30 weds morning to get one...

I've had a multimaster for years. Amazing bit of kit but they don't like dust very much!

Bought an 12V Milwaukee one a few months ago and now very rarely use the Fein. As the AEG comes from the same stable and you already have batteries I'd say it's a no brainer :wink:

to be honest battery is perfect but try and get the machine and several cutters and sanding pads as a package as they can cost more than the machine so the extra £50 for £90 worth off blades is worth it

i have the bosch 10.8 same as the aeg if you check the inspection camera or recip saw
and its brilliant :thumbright:

Use the AEG. Was very impressed with the power from such a small tool. Cut a lovely square hole around a damp leak, and cut out the plaster from in between a door frame and a wall with a very small gap. Saved a lot of time.

Shame the slow store clerk at b n q stole it all away though. :shock:
