Great saw
I opened the box attached a 4 ah battery and proceeded to cut a 2x4 60+ times in a row. Battery gauge still read full.

Awesome tool! But it! Period.
It's very easy to use this saw, just pull it out, cut, put away. Just like that! If I win this contest, I would buy another one ASAP! This is a great idea. The convenience of just grabbing it and go, is priceless. I am a handyman, and I would highly recommend this saw to one that is in and out of his truck with tools all day. I can't say enough about this saw, I can't believe it took so long for dewalt to finally make it. I am now looking for a cordless table saw, that would be awesome dewalt.! Wink, wink. Highly recommend adding this tool to your arsenal. It will make a big difference in how you get your job done!

Dewalt 20 Volt Tools Rock
The new Dewalt 20V 7 1/4" Mitre is a perfect complement to the Dewalt lineup of Cordless Tools. I needed a finish saw to carry around to my dock building jobs that typically have no power until the job is complete. We use just about every tool in the Dewalt 20V arsenal and the quality fit and finish of the new Mitre saw is excellent. Changed out the blade for a 120 tooth to cut light aluminum decking and rubber trim etc. and it works great. Very light weight compared to the corded versions yet built very strong. Seems to make a lot of cuts on our 4 & 5 Ah batts. Most of my Dewalt impacts , drill drivers, reciporcating saws etc. are finishing up 3 years of daily use without any breakdowns. I like the fact Dewalt is manufacturing so many of their tools in the USA. The quality is unsurpassed!

I had to have it
This thing is great,I was alittle sceptical about lack of power but not anymore. The saw is well built and oh so portable. I've taken it places like up a ladder onto a roof and a couple scaffold bucks high on the side of a house,places you would never even try to take your 10 or 12 inch slider. Another great thing is not having to buy the larger much more expensive blades,the fact the you can interchange the same blades with your circular saw is awesome.

Fantastic saw. Highly recommend
I need to use this inside my motorhome. I have the 20volt dewalt vacuum and it connected perfectly with the crevasse tool. I cut 3 1x2s together and there was virtually no sawdust. Works perfectly for me. The light is awesome too for lining up your cut. Better than the laser IMHO.

Replaced my Corded Electric Miter Saw
The cordless miter saw is the latest addition to a growing collection of Dewalt 20V yard, garage, and shop tools. The interchangeable batteries easily move from tool to tool and, since not every tool is in use for every task, the 20V batteries get a lot of use. Having owned two corded miter saws, I was initially concerned about the 20V miter saw's power. After the first use, I had no concern, and my last corded miter saw is now gone. My primary uses are for installing wood laminate flooring, door and window casing, other home remodeling and repairs, and furniture restoration and repairs. Easily carrying the miter saw from room to room and quickly setting up is a great benefit. However, I can also work in my yard or driveway, from the tailgate of my pickup truck, or just about anywhere without concern for the location of an electric outlet since it doesn't require one.

Well built
I do a lot of projects. Ca trying & setting up the 12" miter saw for a few cuts (I confess I use it mostly as a chop saw) is a lot of work.

This saw is light, portable, and fast. I can make accurate, square, and even cuts quickly and easily.

Of course, like more travel so I can cut 2x12s, but good enough.

Now if they just made a portable drill press so I can counter-sink bolts in 4x8 sheets.

Best miter saw for remodeler
This thing is amazing. Extremely portable and has enough capacities to get most jobs done. If your looking for a light and compact miter saw for interior remodeling this is it. You won't be cutting large crown but it's great for 90% of jobs. Cuts perfectly straight and the light guide is dead on. This is the most exciting tool I've purchased in a while.

Portable and Powerful
I purchased this saw for the portability and reliability. It is easy to transport from job to job. Makes trimming out a job much easier. All of my 20v tools are the best I have ever used. The run time is awesome and the precision is great.

Does this saw tilt side to side to do crown molding angels
John on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is only a single bevel so it's kind of hard but you can cut 5 1/4 crown laying flat thats it but it's not fun. Good for running base and casing and smaller stuff but I like to cut crown on the big saw. Maybe if u had to cut just a couple pieces it would be ok. But in general I love this saw it is a time saver
Sent from my iPhone
I know its a single bevel saw, but will it bevel up to the 3 degrees like previous dewalt single bevel 12" saws and like the bevel gauge shows?
Mike on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if I can answer that correctly but I do know that it is a
well-built saw very handy and also lightweight I know when I use it that I
get a clean-cut and I've been very pleased with the results that I get
every time I use this saw. I would suggest that you go to your local Dewalt
distributor and try to demonstrate this saw for yourself. I'm not actually
in my shop so I won't be able to give a technical answer to your question
but that being said I think it is a very remarkable tool they have built
Will work with the 18v battery's here in the UK?
Daz on Aug 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends. If the 18v battery is the type that slides into place it should work. The newer style European 18v is the same as the U.S. 20v. It was against the law for dewalt to market their new battery line as a 20v in the UK.
How long The battery last before I have to charge
El catracho on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The DCS361B is a bare tool, there are no batteries included. The run time is going to vary depending on the AH of the battery used.

Bird on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the DCS361B can be used to cut aluminum, as long as a metal cutting blade is used
This looks like a sliding saw but is not mentioned in description. Is this a sliding saw?
Ken on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer's website does classify this as a sliding miter saw.
When will DeWalt start manufacturing ALL of it's products in the US ? I use their tools extensively and if it means paying a little more, I consider it a personal investment to jobs and US financial gain.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
