What makes oscillating tools so popular

Oscillating tools are a relatively new invention, at least compared to other power tools, but they have quickly become the most important tool in many people’s toolboxes. What is it about them that makes them so popular?

The secret is its versatility.

An oscillating tool, also called a multi-tool or an oscillating multi-tool, is a power tool that is using various types of oscillating tool blades that oscillate sideways. It can be used for various purposes due to the abundance of attachments. You can use an oscillating tool to fulfill most of any home repair needs, such as cutting, sanding, sawing, scraping, and much more.

This is not a large tool and it is very intuitive to use which makes it a great tool for people who don’t have much experience using power tools and are only starting to do home projects on their own. It also saves money as you don’t need to buy every single tool for different purposes, you can just purchase additional attachments if the need arises. This is perfect for people who don’t have a lot of storage space.

This is not to say that professionals don’t use oscillating tools. Their size makes them portable and allows you to bring just one tool instead of a separate grinder, an electric saw, and few others. It is also useful for works that require precision which can be hard to achieve with usual power tools. The relatively small size means that you can use it in narrow and restricted spaces.

Which oscillating tool should you buy

This, of course, depends on your specific needs but chances are that you won’t have to go far to find a good quality oscillating tool. Many retail stores carry them. Home Depot has a wide selection of oscillating tools that includes some of the best models on the market. You can’t go wrong with a Home Depot oscillating tool. The top picks that can be found at Home Depot are as follows:

Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Multi-Tool

This Makita oscillating tool features power that rivals a lot of corded oscillating tools. It uses two 18 Volt lithium-ion batteries which are characterized by a very fast charge time (only around 30 minutes). Any cordless power tool is easier to use than their corded counterparts because you don’t have to worry about finding the power source and tangling the power cord but the drawback is usually less power. This is not the case with this tool.

With the Makita oscillating tool, you can adjust the speed setting to match your needs, from 6000 to 20000 OPM. It weighs less than 5 lbs so it can be used comfortably for prolonged periods.

Dewalt Atomic 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Oscillating Tool

This oscillating tool from the renowned power tool maker Dewalt can really pack a punch. Like the Makita tool, it is also cordless and uses a 20 Volt lithium-ion batteries that are sold separately. The variable speed goes up to 18000 OPM. This Dewalt oscillating tool features the Quick-Change technology that allows for faster switching of accessories for smoother work. The attached LED light illuminates the work area. It is a great tool for beginners due to its compact size and weight (2.33 lbs).
