Bosch has just expanded its category of corded and cordless oscillating multi-tools with the MX30E Multi-X™ Oscillating Tool. It has a 3.0-amp rating, which Bosch says is the highest in its class, to deliver added power for heavier-duty applications. This corded tool can be adjusted from 8,000 to 20,000 oscillations per minute, and it maintains constant speed under load using Bosch Constant Response™ Circuitry. A reinforced gear housing, small grip circumference and multiple soft overmolds help reduce vibration and make this multi-tool more comfortable to operate. It’s also the first model from Bosch to include a tool-less accessory change lever. Unlike some competitor tools, there are no parts that must be removed when changing a variety of Bosch’s Oscillating Interface System of accessories for cutting, grinding, scraping and sanding tasks. This ensures that no essential parts can be lost on the job.
The MX30E is available in three kits. The MX30EC-21 typically retails for about $199 and includes five cutting and scraping accessories, a sanding pad and 15 sanding accessories. The MX30EK-33 ($249) comes with seven cutting, scraping and grinding accessories, a sanding pad and 25 sanding sheets. For $299, the MX30EL-37 includes 11 cutting, scraping and grinding accessories, a sanding pad and 25 sanding sheets. All three kits are available now through Bosch authorized dealers.
