Review Summary

When you have more control over your DIY project, you always have a better result. The Dremel 4000 is a multi-tool that has many interchangeable features and attachments. It’s able to tackle precise tasks and get into the most awkward spaces, so there’s no more worrying about how you’re going to complete your project. It carves as well as sharpens and grinds, which is all you could ever want from a multi-purpose tool. When rust or corrosion damage materials, the Dremel 4000 can remove it in record time. It’s lightweight so you can work for as long as you wish. Plus, its rotary speed can reach up to 35,000 RPM. For such a small tool, this is powerful. Another great feature about it is that you can turn it off and on without touching the speed. So, if you want a break from your project, you can just come back later and carry on where you left off. The corded kit comes with 23 attachments that can help any project. One of the best things about the Dremel 4000 kit is that it appeals to everyone, from professionals with years of experience, to the new beginner.

Dremel is one of the biggest power tool companies in the world, and they’re known in the industry for having good quality yet affordable products. Their tools are often the favorite of DIYers and tool enthusiasts which is always a good sign that they provide an excellent service. Any of their products (especially this Dremel 4000) are worth trying out if you’re new to the industry as they’re often good kits to start out with.

Electronic Feedback

Electronic feedback is used to control the output of electronic devices. It’s a feature on the Dremel 4000 model that can provide consistent power. It can sense the workload and adjust the tool speed it is while also maintaining that speed for as long as needed. Having this control and feature on the tool is a great addition, and many other multi-tools don’t have this feature (even some of the other Dremel ones!). It’s worth seeing if you can make use of this feature as often it’s not apparent when we can make use of different extras that power tools have.

Extra Attachments and Accessories Included

Not only are there 23 attachments included that allow the user to do different things and complete various jobs. There are also other accessories in this Dremel 4000 kit too; this includes the sanding grip which allows users to guide a workpiece to a mounted rotary tool. It also includes a detailer’s grip which enables a pistol tool to be added to the tool. It’s great that the Dremel kit includes this at no extras cost as it’s all included in the price you pay!

2 Year Limited Warranty

All Dremel tools come with a warranty of 2 years or above, the Dremel 4000 kit has a limited warranty that starts from the date of purchase. It is a limited warranty though, and this should be kept in mind if there are any issues with the tool. Wear and tear is not included in the warranty, it’s mainly any issues with the manufacturing of the product than anything else.

FAQ

Is this model ideal for professionals?

Definitely! There are so many professionals in the industry who love Dremel products, and this 4000 kit is no different. It’s especially helpful for those who are getting started as a professional because the extra accessories save money, but they can be made use of. It’s still useful for those who have never owned a power tool though as well so don’t let that discourage you from buying it.

How durable is the Dremel 4000 Kit?

The tool itself is durable and can take drops or accidents that may happen when you’re using it. However, the warranty for professional use is only 1 year because excessive use has led to the tools breaking more easily. If you’re careful and you look after the tool and keep it in the case, then it should be durable for a long time.

Is this Dremel 4000 kit good value for money?

While the initial price of this kit is expensive, and this can often put a potential customer off buying it, since it includes lots of extra accessories, it saves you money in the long term. Different jobs need different attachments, which is where the extras come in useful. It’s good value for money because there is so much to this kit, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

What the Users Say

We decided to go ahead and do our research on what other users had to say about this Dremel 4000, and it turns out that most reviews are positive. Users talk about the Dremel being a dream to work with as it’s easy to use and great once you know how to control it. Another good thing about this Dremel 4000 model is it’s sleek and slim design, definitely a user favorite.

However, some users mention that the price of this model is steep considering Dremel make other models for a much lower price that are very similar in build. They explain that it would be better if the price of the product were slightly lower and more suitable for those who aren’t professional. Despite this, the carry case included is a hit with many users as it’s handy and keeps the tool safe.

The consensus is that it’s a good product that works well but the price isn’t the best and could be improved upon.
