The PMF 180 E from Bosch is a true model of versatility: it cuts, saws and sands
The Bosch PMF 180 E All Rounder has a wide range of applications from cutting and sawing wood, plastic and metal to sanding, scraping and de-grouting. Even in the tightest of corners and edges it can be used thanks to its ergonomic design and handy accessories.
The PMF 180 E is easy to use because you have a secure grip on the tool at all times. Plus, the speed selector switch allows you to match the working speed to the material. The 180 watt motor provides high power for all applications. The more you work with it, the more you will appreciate its abilities: its handiness and power, and its manoeuvrability in tight spaces. You are sure to come up with countless ways of using the PMF 180 E.
| Cutting is a doddle with the All Rounder|
Cutting in wood
You can make a variety of useful cuts with the plunge cut saw blades for wood: make cutouts in door frames, or in furniture to access wall outlets. Two wood cutting blades are available for use with the PMF 180—the 32x40mm, which comes standard, and the 20x30mm, which is sold separately.
|Cutting in metal |
Even metal can’t stop the PMF 180 E—with the metal saw blades, available to purchase separately, you can cut nails and pipes to the required length in no time. You can even use the metal saw blades to make plunge cuts into drywall for power sockets. You’ll be able to do this without great effort—but with the highest precision.
|Cutting in tight spaces |
Whether short or long cuts, whether in the middle or at the very edge: the PMF 180 E and the BiM Segment Saw Blade with depressed centre cuts architrave skirting that conventional machines only reach with extreme difficulty—or don’t reach at all. Parquet floors are flush in no time, protruding wood cut in a flash, and that new drainpipe will be cut to the right length quickly.
| Another cutting accessory available to purchase separately is the BiM Segment Serrated Knife. The offset design of the PMF 180 E allows you to work flush to the work surface, giving you precise angle cuts, so using the Segment Serrated Knife blade makes it easier to cut insulation materials than with a sharp knife. Plus, since it’s manufactured with BiM technology, the Segment Serrated Knife attachment will last cut after cut. |
| The Universal Groove Cutter attachment (sold separately) allows for easy removal of joint-filling compounds, with cutting edges on three sides, an offset design for flush work, and a cutting depth of 50mm. You can cut precisely in corners because of the All Rounder’s tapered body shape and the Groove Cutter’s narrow cutting tip. It can also cut common soft-insulation materials, like Flumroc. |
| Sawing made easy|
The PMF 180 E also makes light work of the hardest materials. Simply clamp in the TC Riff Segment Saw Blade and the PMF 180 E is ready to start: for making an additional cable channel in the wall, for cutting your new wall tiles or for removing grout. Thanks to its power, the PMF 180 E ensures a safe and precise cut.
| Sanding: for the perfect finish|
The PMF 180 E ensures perfect surfaces, on furniture and profiles, and even when working on the body of your car or motorbike, because its sanding attachment turns it into a powerful and low vibration detail sander. And because the PMF 180 E is extremely lightweight, you can achieve impressive results without having to apply a lot of feed pressure. What's more, clean-up is easy because the PMF 180 E has a port for connecting to a vacuum cleaner.
| The PMF 180 E is also designed for scraping, even in hard-to-reach areas. Available separately, the scraper blade can help you remove glue from surfaces after carpet removal, or mortar and concrete remnants—even remove paint from glass, or stubborn stickers. |
|Oscillation: the secret to the All Rounder’s success|
The technical secret behind the versatility of the PMF 180 E is its oscillation principle: the accessories do not have a circular motion, but rather oscillate at an angle of ±1.4 degrees—enabling the most precise cutting, sanding and sawing.

| Change accessories quickly and easily with the handy angle function|
All tool accessories for the PMF 180 E can be fixed at the appropriate angle with no risk of slipping. Tool changes are easy with a single fixing bolt.

Overall...no this isn't a substitute for my band saw or a wall chaser or jig saw or whatever else...I've got those already and will continue to use them where appropriate...so don't expect this to cut like a band saw! That isn't the point...this tool is about doing jobs the other tools can't do ...or doing small finishing jobs extremely neatly...in that respect this is a great tool to have. I have a garage of tools...you name it...I've got it...but this tool can simply and easily do some jobs very neatly that the others would make a mess of and require lots of finishing and re-decorating. Yes I could have used a stanley knife to cut the socket box out...but it would not have been neat...then I'd be faffing around to get the box in the wall. Yes I could have drilled the floor and cut it with a hole saw...but it was a floating floor and I wanted to cut the top layer and then cut a smaller hole in the bottom layer so I could just lay a neat patch in (it was under a cupboard!)
Whats really great is the missus will think you've spent hours doing the work to such a high standard...don't forget to swear a lot and bash the hammer + order the teas as usual or the game will be up!!!
It wouldn't matter quite so much if the velcro sanding pads were commonly available, but they are not stocked by and tool store or DIY centre I know of. So you have to buy it here on Amazon: Bosch 2609256956 AVI93G Sanding Plate Delta for PMF 180 E Multifunctional Allrounder. At over eleven quid, that's an expensive durable that will only last a couple of hours worth of work.
Other than this, the product works well - I've used it for plunge-cutting MDF and cutting copper pipe as well as detail sanding.
Basically it sands and it saws.
It sands as well as anything else, so let's leave it at that.
It's the "saw" part that's so useful. Now don't get the idea that this is some kind of power tool saw that zips along. It doesn't. Sawing is a slow process. It's not going to replace any of the saws you already own. What makes it so great is that it gets into places that nothing else will reach.
I think I have had the best use out of it (a) nibbling away at awkward bits of wood in diffcult to reach places (b) handy for everying around the laying tongue and groove flooring (c) getting through plaster board in a tidy way to retrofit plumbing and lighting (d) cutting joints where a mallet and chisel won't reach (e) neatly carving hardened expanding foam and (f) a million other projects I can't even think of right now. All I know is when a project is on, and the tools start accumulating around me, the PMF 180 is certain to join the scrum at some point.
Couldn't live without it. Have worked it hard and it's ready for more. Fully deserves its 5 stars.
