    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • One Fein Day

    Mar 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very versatile
    Cons: expensive, especially the accessories

    Summary: This is a long review, but the tool fills a lot of roles and is expensive--the combination seems to call for a longer write-up. The Multi-master looks like a detail-sander and it fills that role very well, but it also does a lot more. ... read more

  • Great Tool!

    Pros: Too many to list
    Cons: None

    Summary: I think that there are a lot of "operator error" and buyer's remorse issues with the bad reviews of this tool. I have used my MM as a professional remodeler for about 9-10 years (mine has a metal case, does not have variable speed, and you ... read more

  • horrible tool!

    Sep 24, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: there is honestly not one good thing I can say about the tool.
    Cons: all of the above.

    Summary: I am a licensed contractor (equinoxhomes.ca), and rely daily on a range of powertools.  And in my experience i have never used a tool as dissappointing as the multimaster.  The workmanship on parts is absolutely attrocious.  Upon the first ... read more

  • Highly recommended - with some advice

    Dec 13, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Versatile, well built, it really sands, pleasure to use
    Cons: Expensive, expensive accessories, pads melt a little to easy

    Summary: I selected my MultiMaster as my first positive review since its price forces all but the really wealthy ones to think carefully about it. The question whether it is actually useful is not as easy to answer than for a drill ... in other words, it is a ... read more

    Pros: Awesome for plumbing and sprinkler repair work.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: As a homeowner with rental properties to maintain, I couldn't justify spending this much money on a tool.  However, I "requested" it as a Christmas present from my wife.  Glad I did; it's amazing how many things you can do with it.  By far ... read more

  • Expensive and very poorly built

    Pros: Long cord and great way to exhaust your checking account.
    Cons: It fits in the case good and has a long cord for hanging up.

    Summary: I got this for Christmas last year (2009)... All the blades broke by the end of January and haven't used it since. It is very expensive and not worth a fourth the price. If you think this is a great tool, you haven't used it ... read more

    Pros: Much, much cheaper!
    Cons: Haven't tried the Harbor Tools version yet.

    Summary: Habor Tools now sells this tool at Harbor Tool prices! It's $49.00 ($39 on sale day after Thanksgiving 2008) and the blades are equally inexpensive. The patent has expired so now other companies can sell copy cat ... read more

  • Great for short jobs but runs too hot for extended use.

    Oct 13, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Works in those special situations were other tools can't.
    Cons: Runs HOT HOT HOT and cost is a factor.

    Summary: The tool works as advertised except for certain hard material jobs such as grout removal. It runs well for those quick jobs but not for jobs that require extended use. When used for extended use the tool gets extremely hot and all attachments then get ... read more

    Pros: OK for reaching difficult spots
    Cons: Not for precise cuts, VERY Expensive to operate goes through expensive blades.

    Summary: Spent ~$400 on a complete tool kit does the job reasonably on certain cutting and sanding jobs but two very significant drawbacks 1. Because its a vibrating tool it is very difficult to make a precise cuts without scratching the surrounding area ... read more

  • Bad faith company

    Rated Show
    Pros: Portable
    Cons: Can't cut grout as easily as claimed. Blade wears out fast. Bad customer relations.

    Summary: I paid full price with my credit card for this thing. My wife and I had hoped that it would help us re-grout tiles in our home. But we couldn't cut grout as easily as they claimed. Blade wears out fast and the 6 in area we started with is still full with ... read more

    Pros: Does not cut skin!!! Clean cut in wood and drywall with low dust.
    Cons: Needs star adapter that is an accessory. Blades are steel and do not last.

    Summary: We do remodeling and frequently climb ladders and work in tight spaces with nasty rotary and reciprocating saws. I purchased this Fein Multimaster after seeing (and I am embarrassed to say) an infomercial on this tool. I was impressed with the cutting ... read more

    Pros: plenty of accessories powerful motor
    Cons: can't think of any

    Summary: I tend to be skeptical of the quality of products that are advertised a lot on TV and I probably wouldn't of purchased this for myself. Knowing we were undertaking remodeling our bathroom, my daughter bought it for me for my 50th birthday and it's ... read more

  • Underpowered

    Rated Show
    Pros: Range of accessories, really the only tool for some nasty jobs when renovating.
    Cons: Underpowered, durability of sanding pads and papers.

    Summary: Bought this tool for renovating 40 or so windows and a few interior doors with mouldings. The bottom line is that the tool is really underpowered for sanding. A sad experience is also that the velcro sanding papers tear up (the soft backing rips apart) ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looooooong cord, high-quality construction, easy to use, easy to control
    Cons: Kinda pricey - but worth every penny!

    Summary: I purchased this tool pretty much for one specific job. I was having trouble figuring out how to do a plunge cut into some base trim without cutting the floor or the wall above the trim (I had to remove a small piece of the base trim and replace it.) ... read more
