Features: The PC comes with a plastic case and the CR with a bag. I like the case better although too many compartments. I like a case with one area for the tool and another large area for attachments. This makes it much easier to shut the case without having to line everything up. The CR comes with a power indicator on the tool and a small built in light which may come in handy. Both tools have an easy to use variable speed dial. The CR has a vacuum port although I found it pretty useless in practice since the suction does not get close enough to the business end. The PC has a more flexible (rubber) power cord than the CR. I bet it would be less stiff in the cold as well. I really liked the quick change system on the PC compared to the hex key on the CR. Since the PC is relatively new the CR has more attachments options. In addition, I believe the CR is compatible with the Fein which has a very large assortment. Due to the quick change system on the PC other manufacturer's accessories will not fit. Besides the connection point on the blades they seem to be very similar in quality from both manufactures. The blades come marked for identification and depth of cut. These marking are painted and wear off just about on first use. Both manuals had very little useful information once you get past the pages of safety instructions.Read more ›
The Sonicrafter is a well-made tool and seems fairly heavy duty. Mine has taken quite a beating. The only complaint I could have with it is the chuck, which requires removing and replacing an allen bolt in order to change blades. This can become tiresome, especially when you are working under very dusty conditions, when the dust can get into the bolt threads and make the bolt difficult to remove and tighten.
The PC has a tough plastic gear housing as opposed to the Sonicrafter's metal housing. I don't know what the gears are made out of in either tool, though both tools are about the same weight. The only other difference I notice is that the fan in the Sonicrafter seems to push more air than the PC's. In actual use I have not noticed that either tool runs cooler than the other. Both tools seem to cut at about the same speed. I haven't noticed any other differences.
Overall, I prefer using the PC because blade changes are so much faster.
Some people have mentioned that the Velcro on the sanding pad has a tendency to melt. This occurs with all brands of oscillating tools and is not unique to the PC. Here is a Youtube link for the Fein Multimaster which explains how to sand properly in order to avoid the problem. I hope this helps.
Well, it appears that Amazon won't allow Youtube links.Read more ›
Update: Porter-Cable responded that their multitool is a new product, and they had not yet received any other reports of this issue - and asked whether this response had solved my problem! I have returned it, and will be buying a Sonicrafter instead.
Further update: Some comments suggested that this could be a problem with all such tools, that the sanding technique might need to be adapted, and fixes to work around the problem were mentioned. However, I feel that one should not have to improvise to make a tool work properly. I have since used my Sonicrafter in exactly the same way, for several hours at a time, and never encountered the slightest problem, so I guess I will have to stick with my original assessment!
