Just reading about the tool! Can anyone give a close guess about the price of the tool, and the attachments?

I have ben looking at another brand for a long time, but it is just to much money for it.

(And can the attachments be used on either tool????)  Thanks

Bruce!

I saw, somewhere, that the Multi-Max will sell for about $100. That's a little less than half of the "DreamTool" in it's basic configuration. It's hard to tell tho, if the accessories will work between the two, Dremel's picts show what looks like a 'hole' pattern as opposed to the 'star' pattern. The BIG thing is accessories.... I don't see many here for this tool.

Dremel (Bosch) doesn't seem to be giving out much info on this at all. The specifications are meager at best, they do say that there is a "Quick Fit" feature but the manual shows an allen screw holding the blades in. The "DreamTool" advertises a 16ft. cord, Dremel is silent about this. I also don't see a vacuum attachment which is most times a necessity.

I will have to hold this tool in my hand, try it out and see more accessories before I commit to this. If they wish to compete on all levels, they need to commit the resources towards marketing to the same level as the competition. I would hate to invest in this tool and it's accessories only to find that it will not hold up to the daily grind of jobs. My livelihood depends on my tools.

In there defense tho, they do give a 2 year warranty, which is one year less than the Other. I'll keep saving my pennies, I'll check out this new stranger in town but if it isn't up to snuff, I'll be spending my money elsewhere.

Bruce,

I only learned about the Multi-Max in this month's Dremel newsletter. After receiving the newsletter I did a quick search on line. I did not see anything about whether the Multi-Max attachments are interchangeable with the 400-XPR, but I did read that it would cost $99.00. That is a great price when you take into account that it is meant to compete with the Fein Multimaster. It will be interesting to read the reviews on the Multi-Max to see if it stands up to the competition. That is all I know.

Thanks,

Kurgan

An article on it is included in this month's Dremel newsletter. The article contains links to reviews on the Multi-Max. According to those reviews, the Multi-Max will retail for $99.00. It appears the accessories and attachments are similarly priced to those of the rotary tools.

Thanks,

Kurgan

The tool is scheduled to releas the second week of OCt for about 100bux. From what  I have seen the blades interchange with the FEIN which I agree is EXPENSIVE

Pfein vs Multi Max

You are probably looking at the German-made Pfein oscillating tool.  Well, the Multi-Max comes pretty darn close, and the Pfein attchments will fit it.  Bosch/DREMEL's Multi-Max  is about 1/3 of the price.

Personally, I love my Multi Max and, as it is a DREMEL tool, I know that the manufacturer will stand behind it!

"For almost every problem,
there is a DREMEL solution"

"When all else fails, read the instructions."
