Ocillating Cutter

, suffolk
"Great item, usual Dewalt quality, I've only had this item for a few days but after having used it a few times, I know this tool is going to be very useful and a mainstay in my toolbox. Would highly recommend any Dewalt tool. I already have a cordless drill and grinder which are among my best power tools."

Superb DeWalt Quality
1 Aug 2014
By
, Wirral
"Bought with the initial purpose of trimming some trim off the bottom of a UPVC door, apart from the door being only 3mm from the floor and obviously several layers thick, this tool made absolute light work of it. I wanted to cut another 3mm, this multi-tool made it so easy, very very cut and almost no mess (certainly no dust)
(I know you should never really trim UPVC doors, I knew I'd need to resort the bottom seal, but because the original door was fitted by 'Jack', it had no more raise-height clearance!!) Finally I can place a mat at the back door
Anyhows, the No-Tool Quick Change facility made loading the blade very easy and secure.
The cutter is very evenly balanced so you don't find yourself trying to compensate for a heavy front-end in anyway.
Cutter comes complete with a plunge cutter blade, a scrapper and sanding pads ... and it all comes stored in very nice DeWalt tool bag.
I know you can buy cheaper, but you can't buy better than this !!"

The Same Great DeWalt Quality
3 Jul 2014
By
, Banbury
"It's still early days, of course, but this DeWalt multi-tool has all the features I need, acquitted itself very well on the initial jobs I bought it for, and appears robust and well-made.
I probably would've gone for the same tool with the hard case and expanded accessories pack, but would've had to wait another day until it was in stock at my local store. A great tool."

Great product
23 Jun 2014
By
, north lincs
"Ordered on line and picked from the store, bypassing queue.
I bought it principally to help out with tiling, but it has been used for a number of different jobs already.
Pros - Powerful
I like the variable speed and large power switch that makes it easy to use.
Easy change tools
Can use cheaper tools with adaptor.
Cons - Depth guide is not there, but no big problem.

'All day' comfortable
18 Jun 2014
By
, Surrey
"Great quality, solidly put together. Variable speed is excellent enabling instant and almost infinite (up to max) speed variation (however, can only 'lock on' at full speed making constant speed whilst sanding awkward areas a little challenging). Vibration is minimal allowing for almost all day use (e.g. sanding wooden window frames on a large property). 'Balance' trigger allows for easy use at a variety of angles with various grips whilst still able to use the trigger(s) in comfort. Sanding platen has good velcro adhesion to sanding sheets. NB: Use of the sanding platen requires caution as excess speed and/or over use on one section of the sheet can cause the velcro and the pad to melt behind the sandpaper sheet before the sheet has worn out. Quick change accessories are easy to use. Long cable for flexible working. Good product. (reliability yet to be assessed but if my other DeWalt tools are a guide then it should be excellent)"

"A superb piece of kit.
Great feature is the tool free blade quick change.
So why, for heavens sake, do Screwfix not stock DeWalt quick change blades???
(Cannot yet comment on long term reliability)"

Great tool with extra features
22 Apr 2014
By
, Redcar Teeside
"I bought this tool after using a Fein but not wanting to part with the extra cash. Having owened just about every 18V tool dewalt have made, I can vouch for the quality and useability of the brand. This has the additional and very useful feature of LED light and quick blade change ( as long as you buy the right blades with slot in them). Otherwise there is an allen key adapter to secure all other types of multicutter blades.
Would recommend this above Fein as it has variable speed control on trigger and a good bit cheaper.

4 Mar 2014

"Bought specifically to remove discoloured floor grout in my cloakroom. Did this effortlessly using dewalt grout tool (bought elsewhere). Also used it to remove old imitation tiled wallpaper- brilliant! Very easy to control and change accessories. Dewalt accessories not cheap so shop around for best deals. Not tried other make accessories but supplied adaptor makes this possible. Hoping for years of use on many Diy jobs."

Beyond Excellence!
11 Feb 2014

"After buying a bosch a year ago to see what the fuss was about, I was hooked to the multi-tool.
After the bosch passed away in a fit of silence, I felt now was the time to upgrade a a proper brand name of DeWalt, I always buy DeWalt normally so it was a logical choice.
WOW !! This tool is everything the Bosch was and more!! The delay DeWalt have made in bringing this to the market shows in everything they have done with it.
From the LED light on the front to the quick release tool and then the power (300W) is something of a real power tool !!
If you are thinking on a multi-tool don't waste your money on the rest but the best !
The only small snag to it is that it comes with a bag rather than a strong box, but that's only a small snag and shouldn't bother you in choosing this tool."

Good for awkward jobs
9 Feb 2014
By
, Weymouth
"Bought this specifically to cut the bottom of door jambs when fitting engineered flooring. Having spend upwards of £600 on the floor, factoring in an extra £130 for this tool paid dividends by making the job so much easier, having struggled to cut and chop one door with a hand saw and chisel. Cuts amazingly fast and accurately and makes plunge cutting a breeze. Check out the numerous reviews on YouTube if you need convincing. I'm sure it will come in handy for future jobs but note, this version comes without dust port and depth stop. These aren't available anywhere separately and dewalt have no plans at the moment to produce them as an accessory so consider if you really need this feature."

"My bosch gop 250 died after 10 months occasional use and needed a replacment there and then and couldn't wait for bosches excellent warranty repair service. Can't fault them on that.
Dewalt has a variable speed trigger instead of on/off switch with a dial for speed control. This makes for neater, more controlled starts. It is also noticably more powerful than the bosch. It has a bright led on the end which is a big help for this tool which tends to get used in dark corners or confined spaces. The best thing is the quick release blade change. If you've used these before you'll know that for tight work you often have to change the blade angle on the machine. With this you just pull the lever in, twist the blade and release the lever. With the bosch you have to find the allen key and undo the machine screw that holds the blade in place. The dewalt design blows the bosch out of the water here too. For me the downsides are that the lock on button is a bit fiddly. Perhaps an override switch and dial combined with the trigger would give the best of both worlds? Cheap replacement blades are a little harder to come by because they are a little bit different to the ubiquitous bosch ones. The case is a cheap canvas bag and not the bosch hard case which is better for staying organised if you have a larger selection of blades. N.b. bosch blades will work with this. They just screw onto the head with the included cylinder head hex bolt. My tip is to cut bosch style blades down with an angle grinder to use with quick release!

A great machine - but if only
10 Sep 2014
By
, Nottingham
"This is a wonderful tool. Like the brilliant De Walt orbital sander, it is solidly made, easy to handle, and with a very low vibration level. The clip on and off attachments are relatively easy to use (and a huge improvement on other multi tools). The saws and scraper work really well - even when using them in difficult position (eg on a ladder trimming wood on a shed roof).
BUT (1) if only the sander came with a dust extractor - there is one available but hard to get - why isn't it included in the pack? The sander is excellent for sanding in tricky areas - but the lack of dust extraction is a fundamental issue. The dust level from the sander means I'm reluctant to use it any more for this role.
And (2) many essential extra parts (eg different size saws and the under-door saw - Segment Saw Blade) are available only as very expensive extra parts. Why not have a more expensive set that includes these and the dust extractor? I'd happily have paid for this, as De Walt quality is so good.

"THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE TOOL FOR GETTING INTO TIGHT SPACES.DIDNT REALISE I WOULD USE IT SO MUCH.
THE ONLY THING I COULD SAY IS IN THE SET UP MANUAL IT SHOWS A DEPTH STOP WHITCH WOULD BE REALLY HANDY
AS IT WILL SAVE YOUR BLADES FROM HITTING CONCRETE OR BRICK WHEN TRIMMING DOOR CHECKS AND SKIRTINGS AND TRIMMING LAMINATE
BUT I NEVER GOT ONE WITH MINE
BUT I WOULD RECOMEND THIS TOO ALL

Good Tool But!
17 Dec 2013
By
, Northants
"Much better than my Bosch Multytool which burnt out forcing me to buy a new one. Only used it a couple of times for cutting out high density flooring and it works fine. Checked the 'user guide' and this tool (DWE315) is supposed to come with a host of accessories, range of cutters, distance guide, hard tool box, etc. Very disappointing to find there were none of these in the box! Screwfix discription says ' & Accessory Set', so it's a bit misleading but perhaps that's why there was £50 off the so called list price."

Dewalt DWE315B-GB
27 Nov 2013
By
, Hertfordshire
"Picked this up online, collected from local store, opened box only to find that a part listed on line didn't actually appear in the box. Then depth stop guide was not there. Interestingly the web site has had this removed now from the listing. Sloppy product marketing in the first place as it would appear that product support knew about the issue and the stores didn't.
The multicutter tool on the other hand is a performance bit of kit (even without the depth stop guide). The variable speed trigger makes a real difference between an OK tool and a very good one."
