Clearly, the team behind this tool understands that each user has unique needs and usage patterns, and that’s why they’ve introduced flexible warranty options tailored to cater to a range of preferences.

1. Standard 12-Month Warranty: Ideal for budget-conscious buyers or those who use the multitool infrequently or in less demanding situations.

2. Lifetime Warranty: Enthusiasts and professionals who plan to use their multitool extensively can choose this option. It provides extended coverage, even under the most intensive conditions, demonstrating TerraTAC’s commitment to durability and craftsmanship.

And the commitment doesn’t end with the warranty period. TerraTAC remains dedicated to servicing and repairing your tool, charging only reasonable fees for parts and labor.

How TerraTAC manages to keep the X14 so wallet-friendly without skimping on quality

TerraTAC’s secret to keeping the X14 budget-friendly is a combination of factors. Firstly, they avoid manufacturing it in the USA, sparing you from any price hikes due to currency fluctuations. Secondly, they let you select the warranty that aligns with your requirements and budget, ensuring you’re not overpaying.

Lastly, TerraTAC ditches the frills of extravagant packaging and flashy branding, directing its resources toward a high-quality multitool that stands out.

Where to buy, and how much does it cost?

You can get the TerraTAC directly on the website, or on Currently, the tool is priced at R1,099 if you order directly, or R1,199 if you order through

Regardless of where you order from, the tool comes standard with a 12-month warranty. If you order directly, you can extend the warranty to a lifetime for R500 with one click. If you order through, you can still purchase the extended lifetime warranty separately by getting in touch with the guys at TerraTAC.

Delivery time is pretty much the same between TerraTAC and Takealot (unless one of them is out of stock) – About 1 to 2 days to city centers and 3 to 5 days for outlying areas.

I will say, that if “Cash on delivery” is appealing to you, you will want to order through Takealot. It’s also pretty awesome that you can pay with eBucks if you order through Takealot.

If you want to pay it off in 4 easy installments, you can do that using PayFlex which is available on both TerraTAC and Takealot.
