The 5800 RPM motor can deliver up to 1800 W of rough power. This is an impressive result for a battery-powered tool, since even the majority of corded saws are less powerful. With this power tool, you can easily cut thick, heavy-duty hardwood and plywood profiles. See More
Weighing 10.4 pounds, this is one of the heaviest 7-1/4" saws available on the market. This heaviness is caused almost entirely by the battery, which takes about 30% of the total weight. This makes it very hard to use this tool overheads, as it might cause severe muscle fatigue. See More
As this tool set includes two batteries and a charger, you can run the circular saw almost non-stop by charging one battery while working with the other one. It will take you up to 60 minutes to fully charge a battery, and a single charge, according to the DeWalt's internal tests, is enough for cutting 2" x 4" pine wood up to 339 times. See More
The add-ons for this product are ridiculously expensive. A single guide rail clamp will cost you $40. A guide rail extension is priced at $133. Additionally, you'll need the separate rail connector which costs $19. Finally, a dust extraction unit costs between $380 to $800, which is almost the price of the tool itself. See More
The body of this circular saw is made from high-quality over-molded plastics and rubber. The rubber is molded on top of the plastics. As a result, the handles will not tear from extensive use. The base plate is made from magnesium-alloy, which is stronger and lighter than cast steel. See More
This circular saw has useful safety features. First, the blade is safely hidden underneath the top guard and will pop out only when you apply pressure to the handle. If the handle is accidentally released, the spring-loaded blade will instantaneously travel back underneath the top guard. Second, the tool has an electric stop feature. It can halt the blade from being activated. Moreover, the risk of kickback is minimized due to the riving knife which keeps cut material away from the blade. See More
