Convenience at its best!
I purchased this portable lightweight mitersaw because of its battery operated feature. Most of the job sites I work on are in condo buildings and this lightweight beast is no problem hauling up 3 flights of stairs. I can’t recall one time I had to change a battery on the job site when it was initially fully charged. Awesome purchase and one of many I have made with Dewalt!

This is a great saw that has a ton of power and is so much easier to lug around then a 10 or 12 inch. Also nice that it won’t take a ton of space as well.

Quite possibly the best single tool I've purchased. Bought it for quick, simple jobs but it has quickly become my go to saw. Started out using it for trim but now I use it for almost everything including flooring, small crown mouldings and even picture frames. Lightweight and extremely portable makes this saw so amazing. Great runtime and easy adjustments are added conveniences.

Excellent saw for starting
I had this saw imported from America to Scotland and absolutely love it, the angle lock on the American version sold it for me as it is so accurate and precise! The saw is light weight and easy to set up. The light features on the blade make for precision cuts also. Really enjoying using this saw on the jobsite and love how portable it is. I run this saw on 5ah and also the 6ah flexvolt and get very good run time, love the saw

I have a 12" PortaCable heavy duty saw but while a real workhorse for construction project, the portability was not convenient. The 20V Max 7-1/4" saw is terrific for trim work due to its portability. A very accurate saw out of the box and excellent battery that holds the charge for many cuts.

Mini cordless version of the 12" with limitations
Same build quality as its bigger brothers but much smaller scale. Super light ease of portability, you don't even think about moving it around with you while you work, hopefully saving time and energy. I cringe everyday when I have to set up the 12" at work and break it down. Very accurate, led is awesome. Single bevel is fine, but you'll have to flip your cut if you want to go left. I'm used to a double bevel so hopefully I can adjust my head around it.
The biggest limitation and could have been prevented by the design team was to allow the saw to extend out by lengthening the slide rails and cut groove enough to cut 2x12 or at least 2x10, but we're stuck at 2x8 with this baby. It just barely cut a 1x8 at 45° miter. I'm getting around this by flipping the wood over, Changing to the opposite miter and finishing the cut on wider stock. Pretty sure that method won't work on a compound miter cut. The saw cuts very accurate so those cuts are coming out decent enough.
I bought this on a whim, when my larger saw desided to smoke it's motor. The local builder supply had it and I didn't have wait for online shipping and miss a day of work. Hopefully I'll settle in on its pro's and save the larger stock jobs for a bigger saw. But for my current job of 13,000' of 1x6 pine interior I think this little saw will work out well,
maybe even better than the big boy.

All good except handle broke and bad warranty
Had minimal use and never abused it. cuts true and square out of box. Love the electronic brake feature. But the plastic carry handle broke recently. Emailed dewalt and was told to bring it to a service center. Why can't you just send me a handle? I believe most people using this tool are qualified enough to loosen 2 screws.

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.
