Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shbumik Decent Tool. Poor Battery Performance.
I bought this to do work around my yard with cutting small branches, etc. the 9099 and 9098 batteries will cut up to 7 2" branches before being exhausted. Bummer. I have been happy with all of DeWalt's coreded products and cordless drills. However getting reasonable battery power out of this will cost you another $250-$300 for 2 5.0 amp batteries and a charger. Their 1.5 and 2.4 amp batteries simply aren't up to the challenge. Clearly, the battery technology is not up to the task yet. More importantly, the batteries are clearly the profitable items for DeWalt, which makes yhis a $400.00 price of entry tool. Simply too much for this level of performance. This tool as it stands is not a professional level tool yet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 30yrcarpenter Box is wrong
I just purchased the saw and the box says dc385b ,with xrp on the corner, got home to find that no where is it stamped xrp on the saw like all my other xrp tools meaning it's not as heavy duty as the box falsely suggests. Lesson learned, open the box in the store

When you make a purchase you shouldn't have to read the microprint to make sure you don't need 3 other items in order for the product to work. I bought a sawsal for a bd gift. Thank goodness I read the micro print. It didn't come with batteries or charge unit. When it was opened we found out it also doesn't come with blades. Jeez

The saw is a great compliment to my already Dewalt tools. Interchangeable batteries made this a natural selection and completes my needed equipment for the jobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jesse Useful Battery Powered Saw
I bought the saw with no batteries or charger hoping to use the battery from one of my drills in the saw. The team at HD said I could use any 18V battery. Not quite right. It needed a LIthium battery to fit properly in the saw. Luckily I have all kinds of Dewalt drills and batteries. Overall the saw works well. The battery has good life for light uses. I would go with a wired saw for heavy continous cutting needs but for a few cuts in the field this is very good. It also fits nicely in an orange Homer tool box if you take the battery off.
