Finding an outlet close to where you need one with a power tool can be a big hassle, not to mention the fact using an extension cord can create a hazardous electrical giant Anaconda snaking around the room that is all too easy to trip upon. For most everyday household home improvement projects a cordless tool will work as well as their corded counterparts, all without the hassle of a cord. Not only do they last a long time now thanks to the new Li-ion technology, but they will help you tackle those jobs faster and safer.

An amazing 10.8v cordless multi tool that can saw, cut, route and even scrape. It comes with all you need to perform all the tasks needed. We like that it's ergonomically designed and strongly built with non-slip rubberized grips, it is easy and comfortable to hold and has a real feeling of quality and competence. The infinitely-variable speed control does just what you'd expect it to do, allowing matching the oscillation speed to the job in hand.
