Here are the best Black Friday 2021 oscillating multi-tool deals that we found so far. We’ve been scouting out all of the deals, and believe these are the ones our readers (and visitors) would be most interesting in.
As you might be aware, oscillating multi-tools are convenient tools that can be used for various cutting, scraping, grinding, or sanding tasks, when paired with the appropriate accessories.
You might also want to pick up an oscillating multi-tool blade set. There are a couple of decent promos right now, and our pick would be the Bosch carbide-tooth 10-pack on Amazon.

Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool Deals
Dewalt 20V Max XR Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit
The Dewalt DCS356C1 is a special-buy 20V Max XR brushless oscillating multi-tool kit that’s bundled with a 1.5Ah battery, charger, tool bag, and starter accessories. This model has a well-liked tool-free blade change mechanism, and is actually Dewalt’s premium tool.
The DCS356 features a variable speed trigger and 3 selectable speed ranges.
This is the BEST deal for most people.
Milwaukee M18 Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit
The Milwaukee 2626-21CP comes with an M18 brushed motor oscillating multi-tool, (1) 1.5Ah battery, a charger, tool bag, and starter blade. This is always a good deal for users who wish to stick with or buy into Milwaukee’s M18 cordless power tool system.
Milwaukee M12 FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit
The Milwaukee 2526-21XCH M12 FUEL brushless oscillating multi-tool packs a lot of power and performance into a compact size. It comes with an XC 4.0Ah battery, charger, starter accessories, and soft tool case.
Dewalt 20V Max Atomic Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit
The Dewalt DCS354D1 special-buy kit features the 20V Max Atomic-series oscillating multi-tool, 2.0Ah battery, charger, and starter blades. The DCS356 features a variable speed trigger, and unlike the XR model discussed above, this one only has a single speed range.
Makita 18V SubCompact Oscillating Multi-Tool
Price: $199 (bare tool)
Corded Oscillating Multi-Tool Deals
Most Black Friday promos tend to feature cordless oscillating multi-tools, but there are a couple of corded offers as well.

Porter Cable 11pc Oscillating Tool Kit – $83.17 at Amazon
Dremel Multi-Max 12pc Oscillating Tool Kit – $80.29 at Amazon
Prices are accurate as of the time of this posting and subject to change.
No way. DeWalt brushless kit win.
Are you really that surprised?
Most people are going to go for the $99 kit, and that’s the best one right now.
The Milwaukee is a great tool, but it has a brushed motor while the Dewalt XR has a brushless motor.
The Milwaukee has a speed dial, and the Dewalt XR a variable speed trigger and 3 speed ranges. Those are just two ways of control. The Dewalt Atomic version has a variable speed trigger but no range setting and so you need to hold constant pressure to achieve the desired operating speed.
There could be other deals later in the season (I’m waiting and watching for them).
I also included the other special buys for anyone who has different needs or wants outside of the Dewalt XR kit.
Need some deals on blades! Hopefully the higher end blades for cutting metal.
Just buy on amazon. I get mine from bullyblades. It’s a veteran owned company and depending on how many you buy could be around a dolllar a blade. Same quality as a $15 blade without all the b.s.
This morning saw these non-Starlock blades in a local HD store:
I have the DCS356 (which I purchased for $99 from a deal posted this site in the past) it’s a great tool. I’ve probably cut 100 holes for outlets and switches with it in drywall and plywood and highly recommend it.
The m12 Milwaukee is one fine tool. No vibration and nice footprint with the smaller battery.
I ended up getting the M12 FUEL one, I really like the Dewalt and have heard nothing but stellar comments about it but I don’t want to carry around a different battery/charger when everything else is already Milwaukee
The M12 Fuel is definitely a great tool. The kit’s regularly $219, and so while $179 doesn’t seem like “doorbuster” pricing, it’s still a very good buy.
Heads up, the Makita subcompact on Amazon is down to $189.
I noted in the other post that it was $189, but it’s been fluctuating. It’s now $191. Still better than $199.
First it was $189 via CPO on Amazon, but CPO had it for $199 on their site. Acme has it published as a $199 special buy.
The price is too uncertain for me to label as $189 – I can’t say if that’s the lowest holiday price, or if temporary algorithm discounts are at play here, especially with the price as $191.18.
I wish there was a deal on the naked M12 Fuel OMT. I have enough M12 batteries and chargers already. That’s why I want that tool over the DeWalt in the 1st place.
There has been on the past, and I’ve been actively look. I’d bet there will be a limited time bundle on Black Friday with a free battery or similar.
Thanks Stuart. I’ll hold off for now and keep following you.
I should caution that there might not be any deals on the bare tool. I’d keep the kit in the back of my mind, just in case.
DeWalt is very frustrating. This kit is nice, but doesn’t have the depth guide or sanding attachment or the cool box to store the accessories…nor do they even sell the starter box separately. I want this oscillating multi-tool, but will have to buy a different bundle or go cordless….neither of which are discounted, so I guess I am not buying one this time. It doesn’t make as much sense when you take a closer look.
