OSC 18 (Cordless Vecturo) Feedback
« on: February 23, 2020, 01:36 AM »
It’s been out for some time now, any feedback?  I have a cordless Bosch (Starlock) and I’m disappointed with the vibration and power vs my corded Multimaster (latest model just before Starlock was introduced).   Since it’s a cordless Supercut on Festool batteries, I would appreciate any feedback from owners of the Fein model as well.  I was about to grab the Makita for $100 since I’m focusing on that brand for cordless, but I do still have a couple of Festo batteries up my sleeves somewhere....

I think its essentially a FEIN. Which has plenty of good reviews.

The Fein Supercut it the best multi tool bar none. As the Vecturo was made by Fein, it is the only thing to compare a Supercut. It gives the same performance as the Fein but, in different clothes.
Either of these two machines would not dissapoint.

I just added the OSC 18 to my setup and used it to renovate 6 door frames cutting through 20 meters of 28mm frame material with no issues or under vibration to my hands and arms. It came in handy for som surgery on teak doors where I could make a cutout for placing new wood in a empty cavity around a hardware element.

I bought the 3 ah compact battery which makes for comfortable handling but would be without the spare.

Bought the accessory kit but have yet to put it through it's paces. I think a compact battery vacuum would pair well with the Vecturo.

The OSC 18 was my gateway drug into the Festool world, principally because of its complete and organized accessory kit; the plunge base in particular suited a specific need for a project. I have a couple of Milwaukee OMTs and a Dremel Multi-Max, and there's just no comparison: the Festool is in a completely different class in terms of power, smoothness of operation, precision, etc. I haven't personally used a Fein for comparison, so maybe these are just hallmarks of the Fein design that I've been missing out on a long time.

How much of the OSC 18 is a Fein design? I know the OS 400 was just a rebadged Fein, but my impression is that the OSC is a considerably different product.

The Fein corded or cordless, have always been the best OMT’s bar none, and by a fair margin.
That’s why Festool were happy for Fein to build the Vecturo.
The OSC 18 and 18volt Supercut are the same machine in different casings. A Fein dealer once told me that the OSC 18 was nearly going to be produced in Fein’s orange, and would have been labelled as the latest Supercut. Fein apparently decided this might cause issue with their customers, as it would of meant a new battery type and charger.
I bought Supercuts, simply because I already have Fein batteries and chargers from previous machines, and also I got good deals on the anniversary editions. I then bought the Vecturo accessories which fit perfectly.
Happy days.

Yetihunter: don't get the Makita, it is not that great, in fact it is at the bottom end of the current slew of Multimachines. My Makita colleague is disappointed with his 18V unit. It is in dire need of an upgrade.

If you use one a lot it would make sense to get the Festool, unless you have another battery platform available. Should you have any Mafell/Metabo batteries lying around the Metabo multicutter is a pretty good no-frills machine, better than Makita. 
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

I have the corded Festool and the osc18 I like them both. You have the be a little careful with the amount of cut with the cordless. Sometimes it hard to go from 400 watts to a cordless with the amount of cut(push).
I also like my work mates Milwaukee cordless.

So you feel the corded Vecturo has more power than the OSC 18?

Yes I’ve been known to stall the blade a few times by accidentally pushing to hard.
The Milwaukee will do it also.
I like them both. I used to have a 250 watt fein but it died.

What type of Batteries were you guys running on the OSC18?

Witt the SuperCut I have the 5ah and a 12v 2ah battery. There is significant difference in power delivery.
So if you need “corded power”, maybe try a bigger battery or the new high power 4ah. Might make the difference. :)

18 volts only. Awhile back I slid in a 15 volt thinking that it would work like a 15 in a 18 volt drill
No go . Didn’t even make one oscillation, before it stop.

Hi Rick,

I know the Festool only runs on 18V.

I meant if you try a different Ah battery (3.2 vs 5 vs new 4Ah high power) that might make a difference.
Not sure though. :/

Thanks I never thought about the Ah of the batteries.
I usually just grab a 18 volt battery and not really worried about the flavor.
Next time I’ll try it out.

I picked it up the kit, sans battery and charger.  It's the good stuff.   My conclusion is that as of 6 or 7 years ago when Fein started producing the current anti-vibration bodies one shouldn't even bother with any other manufacturer.  I goofed on it, but I eventually figured out that there are only two Fein (also sold as Festool) Supercut/Starlock Max blades that work with the plunge base.   The Festool itiration of the depth stop/shoe attachment is significantly better than the similar Fein version I have.   The lone dust attachment will be nice for all of the scraping coming my way.   The vibration control is not as good as my corded Multi-master (FM350Q pre-starlock) but it has a battery on it, an attachment on the head and it's a Supercut.  So, for all intensive purposes, the anti-vibration is quite excellent.  It's far better than other brands that are competing with the MM and the MultiTalent.   I can't say whether or not it is as powerful as a corded Supercut because the Multi-master was always good enough for me.  However, it is certainly more powerful than the 350 watt Multi-master with 6.2ah batteries on it.  With the 3,1 ah batteries, it's noticeably less powerful, but that is to be expected.  The one thing that disapointed me most is the lack of any sort of dust extraction accessory for delta sanding pads.   Festool probably presumes that it's Vecturo customers already have a DTS or a Deltex or a RO90, and Festool is probably correct.  However, I sold mine, and I'm cheapskate sanding them fine details. The fein dust collection attachment works but is really...erm..how do you say...cheap and flimsy on the MM and on the Vecturo, you're gonna need a few rubberbands.  [big grin]  The one nice thing on the cordless Bosch I have is that it's dust collection attachment for sanding is actually quite serviceable.  No complaints.   It also likes to spit batteries out the back, so, whatever dude.    Anyway, I'm satisfied.

You will notice a difference between a compact and a full sized battery pack on the Vecturo and the Supercut.  Voltage sag ain't no old wives' tale.  The new 21700 filled compact 4ah batteries might perform as well on the Vecturo as the full sized batteries, but I won't have any until July and I haven't heard any feedback on that.  It's different with every tool.
