In this video, Todd at Project Farm tests out ten different brands of oscillating multi-tools. He wanted to know if there was a huge difference between a Harbor Freight tool, costing $35, and more reputable, expensive brands costing over $200.
What he found was that the Harbor Freight Warrior brand actually performed surprisingly well, but after all of the tests were done, the best of the lot was the Milwaukee Fuel, the most expensive of the batch, at $219.
Todd starts off the video by describing an oscillating multi-tool as the tool you don’t know you needed until you own one. I don’t have one but I have always wanted one. I don’t have a lot of money to invest in a tool I will likely rarely use. After watching his video, I just ordered a Harbor Freight Warrior.
