Superb bit of kit, brought the 230v corded fein before but slowly moved to cordless. Was nervous about the power loss but could hardly tell. This is a must, its got me out of trouble 100s of time, whenever I think, how will I cut that or fit that in there, I get this tool out. The ease to swap blades out is great.

I have used many multi tools and this one is by far the best multi tool I have used.
I bought it as a set on offer with two batteries.
It has been absolutely abused and is only just showing some signs of deterioration which I am very surprised by because I didn’t think it would last this long.
Good quality, good value for money and comfortable to hold for long persuades of time.
Highly recommend this tool.

Excellent for cutting in dryline boxes, cutting skirting or chopping battens for boxing up . The only thing I would change is to be able to stop the tool from accidentally operating.

Quality tool and the blades provided have held up too. The tool is generally easy to control but I would recommend the one with different modes rather than the one without as it is generally easy to use for different scenarios.

This is fantastic does exactly what it says on the tin (multi tool) lol. Great for cutting into plaster for sockets and fixture. Removing grout in bathrooms. Compared to other tools sometimes comes with all the attachments and blades easy trigger lock on it compared to a makita where it has a key (not sure if that was an older version) but easy to use and light weight.

I have used this multi tool for around four years now, I pack it for every job I do as it’s so useful. The most useful function must be the cutting blades. Fitting laminate flooring it’s great for cutting the bottom of door frames, cutting slots in fitted skirting boards, cutting plug boxes into plaster board walls and don’t forget cutting out the back of kitchen units to access water shutoff taps and the back of bookcases to gain access to power points. The sander works a treat but at full speed the sandpaper starts sliding off which in turn starts wearing the sander pad. The reason I didn’t give the tool a five star rating is because the battery is starting to loosen in the battery casing and that’s with all of my DeWalt 18v batteries. Over time this might become an issue and the sanding pad is shot. I purchased it as a kit on a special with T-stak box, charger , battery and a few attachments. I felt it could have come in slightly cheaper.

This is a very handy tool to have. You would not want to use it all day every day but for short jobs here and their it's amazing. I've used it to remove tiles , cut pipes (copper and plastic ) in awkward places that nothing else would ever be able to do. I've sanded down small areas with it and used it as a scraper to get grout and old paint off walls. It's a great tool , it gets a little bit hot if you use it for prolonged periods but I think I was over using it and being too lazy to go out to the shed for a proper sander . One piece of advice is not to scrimp when buying blades. You get what you pay for

Got it, love it, wouldn’t be without it.

Went from the corded version to the cordless and they are just as good as each other. The quick blade change is great even if it’ll snap the end of the blade off occasionally, and the led work light is surprisingly useful.

High you recommend if you are a dewalt user.

I love multi tools and this is robust yet the main issue i have wotht his is the button as when you are cutting in awkward angles its hard to hold down the switch and keep a good grip on the tool. Would be best if they kept it simple like all the other multi tools

Why didnt I get one of these sooner, got a corded Bosch multi tool and this with a 5ah battery is just as good if not better, certainly more features, quick blade change, led light etc. Highly recommended as with all of the dewalt stuff.

This is one of the best tools I’ve ever bought and has got me out of trouble a few times . I’m sure most other brands are good but I’ve had this for a while now and it is still just as good the day I bought it. Just make sure your using decent blades to go with it.

Although the vibration through the machine is worse,the fact that it is cordless, has a light and a lock on position makes it a great machine

Just got this bad boy having used various corded and cordless diy versions by other manufacturers. I’ve only tested it briefly but it feels well balanced with the battery attached and is very responsive.

I love the fact you just use the lever to release the attachments and not use a hex key or wind it with a lever. I also love the fact you can lock the switch on which helps when doing long cuts, sanding etc...

It doesn’t have a speed adjustment but you can use the trigger slowly and throttle it that was. It feels a good tool and only long test will see how it fairs. I love it and I would recommend it if you have dewalt batts etc..

Great tool. Quick release blade change. Light. I’ve used this since I bought the kit box. For everything for fine detail sanding in the tight to reach spaces, to the obvious cutting of timbers it has plenty of power to do all the tasks you need.

Loads of little additions in the kit box.

Only issue I have is quality blades replacement prices. But that’s the same for all brands though.

An excellent tool to have in your collection. With quick change and an array of different types of blades, from cutting grout to scraping and sanding walls. The Dewalt multi tool is a must have in my opinion. It’s the sort of tool that can be put to the test and do whatever it is you want and until you own one, you will not know what you have been missing out on. A game changer to the expression “multi tool”.

Can’t believe I didn’t buy one of these tools years ago. I use mine most days now, great addition to my Dewalt range. They have so many uses and can cut almost anything in any area. You can get in to corners to cut skirting boards or bits of floor board out. Excellent for notching joists. Would recommend getting one for plumbers/heating installers.

I love a multi tool. I first bought the corded version when it came out but it was always a pain having to make sure the cord was out of the way so that I didn’t die. That was solved with this battery powered wonder machine! The quick change for the blades is great. The only two negatives I can think of are that it could do with a lock off to stop it sawing through the other tools when I just throw it in my tool bag like a Neanderthal at the end of a job. The second is it’s got some serious vibrations on it, so be prepared if you’re using it for any period of time.

I purchased one of these multitools as a birthday present to myself. First dewalt purchase that I have made and it work brilliantly. Its cuts plasterboard with ease and it extremely quick at cutting through wood. I have only really used the Dewalt blades and they seem to last but another big reason I purchased it was because it can use most blades which are on the market which makes finding replacement blades alot easier if im caught short on a job. I found the cost was pretty good and included 2x 5ah batteries with it. I like the stak boxes and have purchased 2 others for storage in my van also and this make it alot easier to find my things as they are all in the one place.

The best tools in my kit. Where would I be without this.... I have the 240v version and have to say it still goes as good as the day I bought it. Looking well battered but has never let me down. Ideal for those hard to access places cutting copper pipe, door frames, plasterboard etc. Blades are not the cheapest if you get branded ones, but the cheap blades do not seem to last very long at all.

Gets a real hammering but has run well so far. Had it nearly 2 years and have noticed that the barrel grip gets warm quite quickly. Cutting performance is still as good as when it was new though.

Used this on a job the other day. Have to say found it a lot more ergonomically designed than my old multi tool. Very powerful and does the job well. If you’ve never had a multi tool then I’d strongly advise getting one, so handy for cutting boards and investigation holes in ceilings/ boarding etc when looking for leaks or cables. Battery lasts well and is quick to charge.

Get it from the right place (online only stores) and you can bag this at an incredible price. I got the whole kit with sander attachments and all blades etc! It has been an immense must have in many situations from getting through mortar to remove bricks and literally cutting shapes out of blocks like its wet clay. (with the right blade - the mortar buster, which is expensive and blunts after 3 heavy uses.. but is a brilliant blade)

I take it to most jobs. And it has replaced my jigsaw on many occasions... (again with the right wide blade.) grout removal is a cinch now.

It has not jammed or stopped on me yet. Amazing tool!!

Good bit of kit! I’ve got a makita 18v multi tool as my kit is all makita but when working along side my mate he has the dewalt kit so I’ve used this a few times now, power wise it has a bit more than my makita, although it can vibrate quite a bit when on high setting, the quick release blade change is good, and it is pretty well made, bit on the pricey side on its own.

Where would I be without my multitool! I reckon I must use it on most jobs and it's got me out of bother loads of times. I'm a bit of a dewalt fan but it's definitely well made and shows no signs of slowing down. Plenty of power but I would recommend using other brands of blade as the dewalt ones are expensive and they don't last any longer.

I bought this after my cheap multi tool broke, it's an excellent bit of kit. Really easy to use and pretty powerful for the size, it's does use the batteries pretty quick if using for a long time. It's light and easy to manoeuvre in small spaces and the lights a great idea for darker areas.

Absolutely love this. Saves loads of time, makes cutting boxes out in plasterboard neat and tidy, and in plaster it saves any little blow outs on the edges if you were to use a pad saw. Definitely a fantastic bit of kit and well worth the investment, at least for a sparky.

One fault with it is when your using it for a short period of time a hot spot forms on the back of the handle and becomes irritating to use.

Always one of the first tools out of the van. It has so many uses, every tradesman should have one of these.
The dewalt model in particular is superb, I had the corded and then swapped to the 18v. There is no noticeable loss of power and the convenience outweighs that in any case.
Most models seem to have an on/off switch then a separate wheel to control the speed, the dewalt has a trigger which is far better to use giving you more comfort and control.
I have used the Milwaukee, makita, Bosch, and grim offerings and I would put my money on the dewalt.

We got one of these as part of a set from Screwfix. To be honest it stayed in the box for about 6 months before we started using it.
We fit doors and windows as well as general building work and now we use it nearly everyday.
It's ideal for cutting existing fixings when we remove doors or windows. It's also great for cutting skirting boards without removing them.
It's very easy to control and comfortable to use. Battery life is very good.

In all you can cut, sand, scrape with it. You'll be amazed how many jobs you can do with it with the range of blades you can buy.

Once you get one, you’ll wonder what you did without it. Honestly one of the best tools I own.

Answered on 27th April 2021 by Inglis Electrical

I use it for everything from cutting to sanding. It’s great for wood cutting and good battery life on 5 ah.

The vibration is not that bad and easy trigger movement

Answered on 27th April 2021 by Get Home Improvements

Answer:

I use it for cutting plasterboard,wood pretty much whatever blade i can get for it if possible. As an electrician its great for cutting out boxes have also cut across floor boards with the right sharp blade. I wouldn't be without mine so much so the guy I work with brought himself one followed by the kitchen fitter we do bits with.

Answered on 27th April 2021 by CD Mechanical And Electrical Ltd

Answer:

I take mine on every job I do these days, it’s especially useful for trimming down skirting boards when building bespoke furniture and fitted bookcases where you don’t have any space for a saw. Sanding doors on hinges, cutting off pieces of metal sticking out of walls after removing brackets, removing grout from between tiles when you want to remove the broken tile or just want to replace the grout. Have use it for cutting slots into plasterboard and wood for the electricians to fit plug boxes and light switches. It’s a super handy tool, you can get away with not digging for chisels and occasionally your jigsaw. Splash out and get the whole kit.

Metal cutting (nails and screws where you can’t a reciprocating saw in). It’s a good tool. Like somebody else has said, slip a 5ah battery on it and it’ll run all day. It’s an awesome bit of kit.

Answered on 27th April 2021 by EC Creative Services

Answer:

Sanding / Cutting are the main uses

I would be without mine now

I use it for taking up floorboards, cutting our socket boxes in plasterboard, I even have a Dimond blade for cutting out sockets/ channels in plaster and breeze block.

By far my most useful tool.

Answer:

Just about everything this is a tool that I thought I did not need but now can’t do without just make sure you get good blades

Answered on 20th May 2021 by Salop Gas Heating And Plumbing

Answer:

Mainly cutting but have used for many other applications,including sanding and removing grout. I would say my multitool has made its moneys worth 100 fold, I use it loads since I have gotten it. I see loads of people say get decent blades for it, however in my opinion I get cheaper blades but in bulk as if cutting through wood and you hit a nail or brick no matter what you got its going to ruin the teeth. If you're looking to get good blades just get them if you're going to use a diamond blade or perhaps something for cutting metal as the cheap ones do blunt quick.

Asked on 6th February 2021 by Ponics

Just bought this and it's great, variable speed on trigger and build quality and accessories are great. Came with tstak which is good also. Also have a milwaukee and I go to this first.

Answered on 6th February 2021 by Kutchen INSTALLATIONS

Answer:

Would recommend Dewalt, had mine for few years now, has never let me down and is still surprising me and what it can do. If you can get with the tstak box and 5ah battery’s then you will be able to do anything. Has the quick snap in blades so no need for using a key to lock in place, however you can get a attachment to use with those blades. Has a good feel in the hand, a light on top, also a lock in switch to hold it running. Not used the makita or Milwaukee so not sure how they sub-stand to Dewalt. Hope this help.

Answered on 6th February 2021 by AW Maintenance

Answer:

I’ve used both and I went for makita. Far less vibration passed through to you. (Less white finger )
Did like the dewalt for the quicker change of blades but the makita one isn’t that much slower !

More blades available for the makita

Answered on 6th February 2021 by D P Plumbing And Heating

Answer:

I have the Hitachi one but have used the DeWalt and the Bosch, in my opinion the Hitachi is the better of the three, more control on the speed, the DeWalt has the better blade change though

Answer:

I have Bosch 18v dewalt 18v and 240v and a fein 110v the fest battery one is by far the dewalt I think it’s much better the the mains dewalt best mains power has to be the fein

Answered on 9th February 2021 by Jj Construction

Answer:

I own the Milwaukee and a mate of mine has the dewalt, little to no difference on the performance side of things but the dewalts quick release is worlds ahead of the Milwaukee’s standard release for changing the blades over, I believe makita use the same as or similar to Milwaukee but the dewalt is a great little tool

Answered on 9th February 2021 by DRM Electrical

Answer:

I purchased the DeWalt multi tool 2weeks ago after my old makita one finally gave up on me to be honest it’s a brilliant bit of kit as usual DeWalt quality since I’ve had it haven’t stopped using it I would definitely recommend it

Answered on 10th February 2021 by PAS Plastering Services

Answer:

I’ve owned a dewalt multi tool for a long time now, I think I would be lost without it now, it really is very handy, battery lasts quite long especially the 5ah, I would truly recommend this item.

Answered on 11th February 2021 by Wonky Box

Answer:

This is by far the best in my honest opinion. The quick change blade system and the fact you are not tied down to expensive own brand blades saves me time and money everyday.
The multi speed trigger is perfect in my opinion too. I am not a fan of the speed setting wheel as with this model I can change speed whilst cutting without stopping or wobbling during the cut.
The dust extraction is also amazing when attached to a vacuum when sanding.
Enjoy

Answered on 14th February 2021 by SWITCH Electrician

I typically use Milwaukee but I can confidently say this outshines the current Milwaukee multi tool, the trigger is smooth and easy to use with Minimal vibration. Very good tool

Hi I have two multi tools both are Fein masters one corded the other in 18v 5.2 amp hour batteries with a fast charger. They are both have quick change blades. I prefer the battery fein as this is the star lock system they both have the power control on the side to change the speed settings.
The air is also directed to the blade to clear the dust away which I find a good feature. They also have a dust extraction gadget to add to a vacuum

Overall I think they are both good quality tools.

23rd January 2018

Hello guys. Welcome to Tool Talk. I'm Ben Curry from Electrical Innovations in Derby. And today I'm going to be talking about one of my favourite new tools.

I've had this bad boy for quite some time, it's the DeWalt 18 volt multi tool and it's the brush-less one so it's the newer one. Quite expensive, I think you can get them for less than £200 with a battery, a couple of batteries and charger, around £130 if they're on their own.

You tend to normally get them just like this, without the blades but you do get your sanding attachment to it, which you just click on there, put sandpaper on there if you like.

So for the longest time I never used this, it just sat in the van never getting much use. And then recently I've started using it more and more, until most recently it's one of the staple tools.

Today of all days I went to a job on a fairly new estate, about 30 years old, and was shocked to find straw in the walls. The walls are actually made of straw, unbelievable. Try chasing that out with your SDS with hand-stop on it and a chisel, it doesn't happen.

So the blade on the multi tool to cut my boxes out and my chases out, and made sure work of it. I use this thing for all sorts, sanding heads obviously really good, it gets into the corners when you're sanding. We're actually in our new house at the minute, I got the keys on Friday, so I've been painting, decorating, stripping walls, things like that.

As you can see the sanding attachment has got some kinda ... these are dirt cheap you buy them in packs from anywhere, cheap as chips.

The cutting blades, the first time that you put a cutting blade in one of these you have to get a floorboard out where there's a nail through the bottom of a stud into the floorboard that you're trying to get out from under the stud, and you can do that and push it under and cut the nail, you'll be thankful that you bought one of these. It will have paid for itself in about a second. That's one of the first jobs I did with mine, and it was just life changing, and I've used it ever since.

Things like pat sawing ceilings, you know if you had to cut a hole in ceilings to get an arm up for access, pull a cable, cut a nice big neat big hole, just take a whole trap out, dead easy with one of these, leave it for the plasterers they'll be dead thankful that you haven't just smashed it with your hand.

Like I've already said, second fixing, chopping boxes in plaster board and walls, cables left in there for you, very useful for that. Yeah spot on one of my favourite tools, and the one I use is the DeWalt DCS355, it's the brush-less 18 volt multi tool, so yeah check it out. Four hour power battery, all the normal things every day when you fire it up it's spot on. Okay this is Tool Talk, I'm Ben Curry thanks for watching.


22nd January 2018

Hi, I'm Russell of Martindale Windows and Developments Limited. I'm a member of Expert Trades and I'm here today to do a review for Tool Talk.
Today I'm going to talk to you about the DeWalt Multi Tool, Oscillating Tool, several other names for it I'm sure in the trade. We all have our own nicknames for them. Firstly, to start off with, I'm new to DeWalt as a tool. I'm really warming to it. Firstly for the value, secondly for the quality of the boxes, how tough they are compared to their rivals, the likes of Makita and Festool. Festool were just as good I'd day, but I've yet to find a stacking box that performs as well as that. The clip together system works really well. I've seen some storage solutions for them in vans and workshops, where they all slide into cages and organisation pole systems. They look like they really nailed it on the storage side, so firstly that's really impressive.
Second is the price. These are selling at the moment through Screwfix, including VAT at 150. That includes the box, the tool itself and the tool is quick release, which we'll go into in a minute. It comes with two 2 amp batteries, which aren't great batteries, but there are two of them and you can keep them rolling and you can obviously add to your system. They work with all the other tools available, 18 volt this is in particular, brush disk motor, LED light on it, all the batteries have got indicators on them to show you how much power's left. You get a great selection of little tools with it, as opposed to the body only Makita or the other tools like that on the market. The Fein Marter, the original that came out. Price-wise this is, I think, the most competitive tool on the market in its league.
We've used it for probably a month now. It's been really good, it's proved really handy. We know that as a tool anyway, purely because of the nature of the tool, great for plumbers, cutting pipes, trimming holes for pipes. The same for electricians, cutting out boxes. We use it for kitchen fitting, cutting holes in work surfaces or in the units themselves. Cutting plastic in the PVC industry, it's really handy for, all sorts.
The tool itself, again like I say it's got a quick release, I'm not sure if you can see that there. It's instant between blade changes, batteries connect, this is like a sliding system. Again, two of those in there, 2 amp, with a battery indicator on the back. This one's a little flat, needs charging. Again, you get a charger with it for that price and there's several tools in here, some of which we haven't even looked into yet. That looks like a dust extraction system for it. I think it's a 15 piece set, so you do have several blades in the set with it. These are really handy for raking out grout on tiles. There's some silicon removers, sanding, that's the plate for the sanding. If I was to put that on there for you, you'd be able to see how quick and easy that is to use. There is a lock, like a safety, you can hold it in and it will hold it on there for you, so you don't have to hold the trigger down; just click it to release.
For what it is, a very powerful tool, very light, very well balanced. Again, extra sanding pads for it. There are extra ... The connection system, I think there's about eight legs that stick out and they go into the back of the tool itself to lock it into position. There's a spare there if the one you've got gets broken. Alan key to service the tool, you can't fault it really for the level of extras you get with it. Again, there's another tool there, another blade sorry. I'm not entirely sure what this is for. Haven't used it yet, but again I'll get round to reading the instructions on it as we do, after we give it a go first and give up and read the instructions. In it's own league, I'd say one of best tools, best value on the market for what they are and I'll definitely recommend trying it.
