Good features, compact...
I bought this in 2018 and have only needed to use it a few times. It worked as expected every time.

If you think you're going to be doing a lot with this model I would suggest buying the xr model or even saving up for the flex volt

Lightweight, able to break down pallets with ease, portable.
I use it for cutting up sticks for firewood and making small trim cuts where accuracy isn't very important.
The 20V MAX battery system is excellent, and this saw is an excellent complement to the lineup.

This saw is the happy medium between a small compact saw and a full sized reciprocating saw. With a more comfortable handle, and full sized saw power to boot.

Dewalt Reciprocating saw DCS387B is oustanding.
I've only had this saw two days BUT I put it into several different senario's in close quarters and it performed flawlessly. Inside a wall in between studs and cutting wall studs out of a wall were a piece of cake. I finished with a smile on my face. I LOVE THIS SAW !!! Thank you Dewalt.

Compact size
I bought this saw to be able to cut out studs behind drywall. This saw was able to fit in between and had plenty of power. I also like the 4 way chuck feature.

I purchased this tool with 2 9ah flexvolt batteries and I use on the daily! I'm warning everyone...people will want to use this tool! It is perfectly compact for tight spaces and has a 4 position blade chuck so you can position the blades up and down and side to side. Yet another great purchase!

BEST ANSWER: Yes, the new 60V batteries are backwards compatible with the 20V tools.
You however may want to consider picking up the 60V equivalent of this
tool, of its out yet. I sure have my eye on that 60V grinder.
I have a DeWALT cordless drill which uses a DCB207 20volt battery 1.3 Ah

Will this battery work on this reciprocating saw?
Joe on Nov 28, 2015
