Over at Amazon, today’s deal of the day features a Dewalt 20V Max brushless oscillating multi-tool kit and 5pc accessory bundle.
The combo is on sale for $129, and Amazon says you save $85 compared to buying both items separately.
There’s not much for me to comment on here. This is a great cordless oscillating multi-tool, with a good tool-free mechanism, although it loses its tool-free nature if you want to use other brands’ accessories.
With other brands’ accessories, at least those with a closed-loop connection, you have to use a hex bolt. Not the end of the world, and inconsequential for those who stick with Dewalt or Rockwell accessories.
Dewalt’s oscillating tools, corded and cordless, feel really good in the hand. A few years ago, I gave them “Best Ergonomics” recognition in my Best Cordless Oscillating Tools guide, a roundup that will likely be followed up on in 2018. I don’t want to say updated, because I think that the Dewalt models continue to earn their Best Ergonomics badge.

The tool kit comes with a 2.0Ah battery pack, charger, and accessory box with a few cutting blades, depth guide, and sanding pads. The bonus accessory bundle comes with 4 cutting blades and 1 scraper.
Separately, the 1-battery tool kit is priced at $179, and the 5pc accessory set is $35.
This tool isn’t my personal favorite, due to its blade change mechanism only being tool-free for certain brands’ accessory styles, but I would still give it a strong recommendation. Hopefully that makes sense.
