WOOD magazine review

Lightweight, handy to use

Review Summary

As a trim carpenter and remodeler, I appreciate what DeWalt’s engineers did with this saw: They made it light (8-1/2 lbs) and easy to use. That’s a pound less than DeWalt’s next-lightest 7-1/4" circ saw and nearly 4 lbs less than its heavy-duty model. And they did it without turning the tool into a toy. The aluminum base has been plenty durable for my needs, and the 15-amp motor packs enough punch to plow through treated pine, OSB laminated joists, and even 8/4 oak.
I’m not normally a bells-and-whistles guy, but what I like best about this saw is its integrated dust blower. The motor fan discharges air in front of the blade, blowing dust and chips off the cutline so I can clearly see and follow pencil marks and chalklines. Nice! —Tested by Dave Fish
