Bosch MX25EKThe Bosch MX25EK-33 is an amazingly versatile oscillating multi-tool from Bosch, priced competitively to appeal to users who want a top quality oscillating multi-tool without the cost of the Fein Multimaster which costs at least another $100.

If cost is a concern, the Bosch MX25EK-33 does seem to offer the best performance/cost ratio of any of the different multi-tools on the market.

The Bosch MX25EK-33 is a tough, versatile, reliable, powerful and accurate tool, designed for a wide range of applications and materials, including flush-cutting, plunge cutting, sanding, grinding, grout removal and scraping. Once you start using one of these tools you really will wonder how you lived without it and will find yourself using it more and more.

Tough, Versatile, Reliable, Powerful, Accurate
In this Bosch MX25EK-33 Review we’ll look at a number of the features that make this such an incredible, versatile tool. Bosch make a number of different kits and the MX25EK-33 is the largest, top of the range kit with the most accessories, and represents the best value for money.

Making difficult jobs easy
The reason muti-tools are so popular is because they make difficult jobs easy. Difficult jobs that previously had to be done by hand can now be done much more efficiently and with less effort. Its small size means that you can work in tight spaces and the lightweight, ergonomic design with soft grip handle lets you work longer and in comfort. Your knuckles and finger tips will definitely thank you!

OIS System Accessories
Bosch have developed the OIS (Oscillating Tool Interface) system which is, according to Bosch

Bosch OIS“OIS is a unique 12-pin system from Bosch that provides a secure, reliable connection between the tool and the accessory. That’s important, especially with today’s high-torque oscillating tools,” says Ken Osberg, Bosch Group Product Manager. “It also enables users to position accessories in 12 different angles to deliver great maneuverability and access to work spaces.

Equally important is the fact that Bosch are hoping this will become the universal standard, just as with the SDS system which they made popular and is now the standard. Bosch, Skil and Milwaukee are already OIS direct fit tools, with more on the way. In addition, the Bosch MX25EK-33 also includes their OSCAD1 adapter for use with many competitor accessories. The ultimate goal is that you can use all the accessories with all the tools, which is better for you, the user (just imagine what it would be like if you had to buy specific manufacturers’ drill bits to fit your cordless drill).

The Benefits of Oscillation
Back when Fein invented the first oscillating multi-tool it was a new concept, but now their benefits are widely recognized. Oscillating tools have a number of advantages over rotating or reciprocating tools. Some advantages of oscillation over rotating/reciprocating tools are:

  • Easier to handle
  • More precise
  • Safer
  • Cleaner – it doesn’t throw dust and debris all round the room, meaning a cleaner job and less clearing up afterwards
