The 7 1/4" cordless miter saw works great for small quick jobs so you don't have too drag out the heavy 12"

perfect for onsite & installations
I work in offices, lobbies, and museums on a regular basis. I can roll in with this saw and achieve shop quality cuts with ease. I find the detents accurate, the action is solid and the adjustability is just like my 12" in the shop. As I only make the necessary few final cuts, I can't comment on battery usage, but, everything else makes this an excellent tool for my line of work.

This is a great unit for just about everything. The best part is pricing for blades is far less than 10 or 12 inch

Great tool
I have two electric models that I love but hate having to take them to do little things because of the extras I have to take, and this model allows me to grab and go and perform the small things with ease

Good - But ... Could Be Better !!!
To Dewalt: There are many reviews out there on this saw from big box stores as well as YouTube. There are several reoccurring comments/request from vested Dewalt consumers asking the following to be integrated into this saw :
#1 Brushless Motor #2) Double bevel feature #3) Depth Stop.(For Dado's, Half Laps, etc)

My comment in addition is the Shadow Light is really just not bright enough for daylight use -maybe add a double tap or mash and hold feature that would produce enough bright light to be seen in daylight as some people would sacrifice some battery life to have a functional light outdoors.

*Also important to mention - Not everyone purchasing this saw would be using it as a companion to a larger saw .The large cut capacity of this saw will likely perform 90 percent of what crafters, homeowners, flooring installers and remodelers would need in a miter saw.

To sum it up, this is a well built, rugged, suprisingly powerful and accurate little saw that has the cut capacity to satisfy a large arena .

I agree with the reviews and out there - Dewalt should give this saw the same respect and functionality as the larger saws !

Great little saw
This saw has been the perfect travelling companion. It's great for small projects and trim work. Batteries last along time, easy to fit in the truck and lightweight compared to the 12 inch. Cut quality is nice. No regrets on this purchase although I do wish it had a double bevel.

I mostly do small finish work jobs and carrying a full size miter saw was a pain and unnecessary. Then I got this one and it's a beast. Lightweight, strong and cuts through everything I've put it against. Nice work

I have been using this saw for nearly 9 months now. As a hardsurface contractor it sees a lot of use. I have been very happy with the battery life and the blade backlighting. It has been a great little saw!

I bought this from lowest this past spring. I donated lot of apartment flipping where I work, which usually requires new floor baseboards and trim. My old 10" off brand saw is heavy bulky and always have to deal with ano extension cord. This Dewalt 20v saw is very handy and mobile. Lasts the whole time I need it for cutting 4" trimy in a 800 Sq ft apartment. Stores smaller than my old 10" saw and easier to carry around.
I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Perfect saw
I purchased this saw because I wanted a cordless miter saw for the ease of use and I wanted a smaller one for the lighter weight and because it will still cut almost everything I ever need to cut. I'm normally a ridgid guy but they didn't have their 7 1/4 cordless miter saw for sale anymore. I saw this dewalt one at the Home Depot and it was perfect. Well built, light weight, works extremely well. Obviously you're not going to have the exact same power as a corded bigger saw but this saw will cut through 2 by material with ease. Slightly less power is a fair trade off for the light weight and ease of use. Have had no complaints with run time either. Can make several hundred cuts with one battery charge.

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.
Could you advise the size of boxing when shipped that is packaging length x width x depth I know it weighs 30lbs many thanks

BEST ANSWER: The product dimensions are 25.2 x 19.9 x 15.7 inches
can this saw cut aluminum
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.

  • 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.
