A good multi-tool can be a blessing for your garden. In this review we look at the best 5-in-1 multitools currently in the market.
The benefits of garden maintenance can be enhanced and easily achieved with a multi tool, these can be cordless garden tools, corded, or even petrol powered.
Read on to learn about our recommendations on the best garden tool/multi power tool options in the UK for this year!
It's important to establish what actually makes a multi - tool for your garden worth the money. We need to consider various things such as the types of tool attachments, and are they versatile tools?
You also need to consider the level of ergonomic design- you will be holding these tools for hours, they should be comfortable. You need to also consider what kind of protective gear you'll need.
The main reason you're likely opting for a 5-in-1/multi tools option to handle your garden jobs/gardening tasks is because they offer you all the essential tools in one package. These types can give you better value for money, but it's important to see what exactly you get.
Make sure you know what you need, and what comes with the package. If you find yourself not in need of two, let alone three attachments- then consider buying those tools separately.
The ideal multi tool to properly manage a typical garden task would ideally have:
One thing we noticed while searching and reviewing these garden multi-tool options is that they're often advertised as a "5-in-1" garden multi-tool, but this usually includes the extension pole. Hence the Stanley one we'll discuss today is the same as the others, just advertised a little rawer and truer!
There are three main power options that garden multifunction tool options may use: petrol, corded, and battery-powered. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, but it's entirely down to your personal preference to dictate which one you choose to go for, ultimately. It's our job to provide you with a comprehensive Garden Multi Tool Buyers Guide to help you choose!
Besides the above two main features, you should look out for:
While this is marketed as a 4-in-1 multi-tool, we mentioned earlier that this is the case with most multi -tool options you'll come across. The 5-in-1's extra fifth attachment is the extension pole, which is also included here.
We love the value for money, and the quality of the items (is unbeatable- Stanley are renowned for their excellent quality tools). You can buy all the tools as individual units if you only have one (or two, at most) jobs to do- but this time we're talking about the the 4-in-1 multi tool which is a highly recommended buy.
The current price online for this heavy unit 4-in-1 multi tool is about £290, but it's on Amazon for about £230. We got ours off there to save a little extra money. To wrap this one up, check this out for a quick-view:
The only issue we came across when trying to start it up was that you definitely need to be guided on how to start it up. The start-up isn't as easy and straightforward as other multi-tools, like the Honda ones. Always make sure all of your cords are in good condition too- we recommend buying a really good quality one, as this one didn't work as well with worn out cords when we tried it out.
Hyundai are a fairly diverse name in the engineering world, from motorbikes to batteries- and their products are always star performers.
The HYMT5200X is a bright-blue coloured 5-in-1 tool designed to handle the excess of gardening with dedicated gardening equipment including five different tools. These are all great at their individual tasks, but some are better than the others. We particularly found the hedge trimmer head could have been better.
The current price online for this 4-in-1 multi tool is about £210, but it's on Amazon for about £195. We got ours off there to save a little extra money, again (as with every one here). We had a slight issue when we bought it- a part was missing. The excellent customer service from Amazon fixed our problem fast, and we had a replacement offered. To wrap this one up, check this out for a quick-view:
The only issue we noticed was the startup mechanism in cold weather. For some reason, when we tried this product in the winter (we test our mowers out seasonally to compare performance), the startup took a little longer than it did in the summer. England is notorious for cold weather, so keep this in mind if you're someone who wants the job done as quickly as possible with zero-fuss in starting it up. Once started, the machine worked very well.
Next we'll be exploring the 58G multi functional garden tool by Wolf Creek. This garden multi-function tool is a great choice for the price you pay, as it may not have fancy extras but it's definitely a high-quality product. Wolf Creek garden multi-function tool options aren't always the first name you'd associate with this niche, but their 58G multi tool is an effective garden tool with extensive garden tasks suitability.
Read on to see why this one will be a great aid in the future of garden tool choices.
The current price online for this 4-in-1 multi tool is about £170, but it's on Amazon for about £159. We got ours off there to save a little extra money, again (as with every one here). To wrap this one up, check this out for a quick-view:
For some mowers, we get a few of them just to check and see if other user's negative reviews are just an anomaly. This mower has been reported to have the occasional petrol leak, so we purchased 5 to check if this was an anomaly, or an actual concern. None of the mowers we had exhibited this problem, so it may very well be an anomaly. If you have a problem, you can always get a replacement or refund via Amazon, easily.
The Bu-KO model Long-Reach Garden multi tool is another top quality option for your garden maintenance. While it is in the pricier end of the spectrum, it's a great choice for someone who's willing to dash a little extra cash for a long-term investment.
With five different attachments and a powerful 2-stroke, 52cc high torque petrol engine/power unit, this awesome multi tool will be loved.
See what we love about this BU-KO model below.
The current price online for the BU-KO 52cc Multi-functional garden tool is about £200, but it's on Amazon for about £179. We got ours off there to save a little extra money. To wrap this one up, check this out for a quick-view:
This is a slightly more budget-friendly option, hence the downside here is that the lower quality can be felt. The plastic parts do feel rather cheap, but if you're just after a quick, cheap tool to help you get all your garden tasks done, then this one is great. Just be aware that you won't feel much luxury when you're holding it.
Last on this list is the multi-functional garden tool by AOSOME. While this is a slightly more expensive option, it's definitely worth the money and will prove to be a worthwhile purchase for people who are interesting in spending the extra cash on a long-term investment.
Read on to see what we love about this 5-in-1 tool.
The current price online for the AOSOME garden tool is about £250, but it's on Amazon for about £219. We got ours off of there to save a little extra money. To wrap this one up, check this out for a quick-view:
One thing to be noted with the AOSOME is that it may have a slight overheating problem if used at high speeds for extended periods of time. We did a runtime of 2.5 hours, at maximum speed, which is when we noticed the body and engine starting to heat up. Hence, we don't recommend this for professional use- however, for domestic purposes, this multi-tool is great.
