Bosch PMF 180 E Multi
Our pals over at Toologics got the big scoop yesterday when they posted about Bosch's new PMF 180 E Multi. It appears to be very similar to the amazing Fein MultiMaster and since the Bosch name screams quality, it should be quite a tool, not to mention some much needed competition in the niche market of oscillating tools. As reported at Toologics, the tool is only available in Europe at the moment, but it appears to be selling at less than half the price of the Fein. No word yet when it's coming to the States.
We did a little research and found the tool on Amazon's German site. With the help of an online language to language application, we translated the lone posted comment. The reviewer had this to say,
Hello, I have bought the device today and am inspired by the achievement circumference. It substitutes for several other Bosch devices and is useable for work which could be differently barely managed (the Terse take a short-cut, doors shorten etc.). On the homepage of Bosch a nice video about the achievement circumference is put nowadays. Hence, I can only recommend you the device.
Very well put.

I read this page with interest about the PMF 180. I does seem a little crazy not to release it in the states.
One can only assume that they know their market. For example you guys didn't get the 'flip over saw' from DeWALT either which is also a shame.
Anyway, I wrote about using my PMF 180 E working on my house in Norway if anyone wants to know more about it. I'll have a snoop around and see if I can find someone willing to ship to the states too and get back to you.
Love the name of the site BTW!
I have been reviewing which multi-tool to buy. The corded versions look to be the best. I sent an email to Bosch to see when the PMF 180 E would be offered in the states. Their response was that they have no plans to offer it in the states. They suggested their sister company Dremel. I bought the Rockwell RK then reviewed your site and I am glad I did. This tool seems to be a work horse. I purchased it at Menards as a kit.
Just wondering why Bosch hasn't introduced the corded 110v version of this power tool in the USA? I've heard the battery powered one lasts 20 minutes per charge which could be a negative to many commercial and DIY folks.
So far, the Rockwell looks like best buy for the average DIY'er. Probably the one I'll buy.
