Quick Change is the Key
The whole point of a multi-tool/cutter is the ability to quickly and efficiently get the job done. However, this is all controlled by the accessory you fit into the tool.
Whether you're sanding, trimming, cutting or rasping, you want to be able to quickly get the accessory attached to your oscillating tool so that you get the job done.
DeWALT has thought this through and one of the most attractive features of the DWE315 is the quick release accessory.
Press the lever, remove the accessory, slot in the new one, release the lever.
What if you own accessories from other oscillating tools?
The DWE315 comes with an adaptor, so you'll be good to go.
Lighting It All Up
3 Way Depth Stop
This seems to be a key unique feature of the DWE315, allowing you full control over your tool as you cut or grind.
For example, when cutting into plasterboard for fitting wall sockets, the depth stop will prevent punching too deep.
