Porter Cable’s newest 3-amp oscillating tool is a quite capable 2nd-generation multi-tool that offers several upgrades over their previous 2.5-amp model. It’s normally priced at $130 via Amazon, which seems an appropriate price for its features, quality, and included accessories.
Lowes is currently selling the Porter Cable multi-tool at a 50% discount as part of their Black Friday sale. We cannot understand how they can do this, but that doesn’t change the fact that $69 is a heck of a good price for a high-performing oscillating tool complete with a tool-free blade change mechanism.

If you’re worried about being able to use other brands’ oscillating tool blades and accessories with this tool, the universal adapter kit is currently less than $10 via Amazon.
Competition is fierce among oscillating multi-tools in the $120-160 range. But at well under $100, the Porter Cable PCE605K is hands-down the best option around. Until supplies run out and the $69 price jumps back to $139.
