Is 60v battery compatible with 20v chargers? Will saw ruin on 20v battery of needed?

Awesome that C 60v is backwards compatible- but with thousands of $ invested in that system, curious about FORWARD compatibility
Asked by: Spacityjim
The new 20/60v batteries will work on all 20v Dewalt tools and chargers. The new 20/60v chargers will work with older 20v batteries too The 20v batteries will NOT work on new tools designed for the 20/60v battery pack though. (The technical exception would be the impact driver that comes in the drill/impact combo kit, since it was still designed to be a 20v series tool).

Does this saw comes with the 4-position blade clamp feature?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: ChristianPanucci
No, definitely does not. They really missed the beat on this one. We have the current 60v items in house except this one due to this exact reason. Having the 4 way and telescoping shoe is a must for us. Put these features back on this and we are purchasing it. Wonder if I could just swap the parts over...

How long does battery last and how long does it take to charge from no juice?

Asked by: Matthew
How long the battery lasts directly depends on how you use this or any battery powered tool. If you are running the saw continuously, non-stop, at its highest speed, you'll likely kill the battery in a matter of hours. For odd jobs around the house, you likely won't even kill the battery in one day. Time to charge is approx. 1-2 hours. For regular use, consider having two batteries since one can be charging while the other is in use.

Customer Reviews

FLEXVOLT 60-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Reciprocating Saw is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful This is just as powerful as the 110v saw I have. It's a little heavy if your're cutting over head for any length of time. I like the keyless lever-action blade clamp for quick and easy blade changing feature. I got the kit that came with the battery, charger and bag. The bags nice to keep everything in one place. I have a drill driver and impact drive that can use the 20/60 volt battery which is nice and I can charge the 20 v batteries as well. The fan in the charger is a little noisy. Also - with the right blade I've used it to trim lower branches on trees and shrubs around the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome power I cut 12 very wet pressure treated 6x6's with this flex volt recip saw. It has a ton of power and cuts like butter. It seemed a little heavy at first, but the weight helps when you use it, now i dont notice how heavy it is. This saw is leaps and bounds better than their 20 volt receip saw. Dewalts flexvolt system seems awesome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth and precise feel I have been using the same Rigid cordless sawzall for over five years and the tool started to give me trouble. I saw the Flexvolt tools and was immediately impressed! So I bought this Dewalt sawzall and after getting the battery all charged up I went and continued where I left off cutting up some small trees and branches, between 1" and 7" in diameter, WOW what a difference!! This Dewalt sawzall cut through the thick and green trees with ease! The weight is perfect and it just makes cutting effortlessly . Got the Rigid for sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a TANK and works just as hard! The first thing that you notice right off the bat is the weight. It's close to 12lbs. One would think that the weight would be a bit off-putting, but there is a reason for it - that weight helps the operator get behind that weight to complete your saw job. The sheer power behind this tool is INCREDIBLE! The main reason why this tool was ordered was for help with building a covered patio out off the back of our home. There were pressure treated 6x6's that had to be notched out and they were beasts to get through. The circular saw was only able to dig into a small area of it. we needed BRAUN! Out came the FlexVolt Reciprocating Saw, and BOOM notches were completed in no time flat! The time saving factor alone because of it's power was substantial. This saw is a beast, and it can tackle any situation that you put in front of it. Using this tool only becomes easier because it also has a helpful light built into the front of the saw to help light up your work surfaces! Now lets talk about that battery charger! The battery arrived with a slight charge from the factory - so I popped it into the TurboCharger - in a half an hour it was FULLY charged! The charger itself has a fan inside to allow it to power up your battery fast than a regular lithium tool charger! The FlexVolt allows you to use the 60V supplied battery for full power OR you can use one of the DeWalt 20V batteries for a little less power, but it still works with quite a punch of power! We used that original battery all day off and on today in six beefy pressure treated 6x6's and it never wavered on it's original charge - we literally could not put a dent in draining the battery -- now I'm sure that a professional construction crew would be able to put a good dent in the power, but I gotta say, that battery just trudged through and powered through without any indication of it being a difficult job by any means. It's built to be USED. It's built to LAST, and it's built to SAW - without a doubt one of THE most impressive tools that we've tested out in a very long time! Well worth making this your choice - it's going to last! Add to all of this that it comes in a very nicely made heavy duty work bag, and it's a tool that should be at the top of any serious builder looking for a long lasting tool that will be there for the long term!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING POWER FOR A BATTERY OPERATED SAW This is a standard size reciprocating saw with some cool new features. First it's battery powered so it can easily go anywhere, anytime. The flex battery will work in a variety of Dewalt tools that use 20-60 volts. This saw preforms well with that 60 volt battery for great power. Cuts for quite a while on a single charge, cutting most anything a 110 saw will. Full power cut until the battery goes dead. Has a very handy flip lever for loading the blades into the collet for fast and easy blade changes. Battery charges in about an hour. Charger cooling fan is rather noisy, not much heavier than a corded saw. Comes with charger, short bi-metal blade and carrying bag. Be sure to fully charge the battery before use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DeWalt Dropped The Ball This could have been DeWalt's best reciprocating saw ever, but they skimped in the engineering & design. I'd have paid extra for a shorter design ( the DCS 387 is only 14.5" vs 17.72"), a 4-Position Blade Clamp & a Telescoping Shoe. If someone offered me a free upgrade to this model, I'd stick with my DCS 387...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 60 vt Bought this and others for a longer battery life - tool it self is great, better than my corded sazall... battery life is good but when they say 4times longer...they mean from the 1mh battery..not what I expected for battery life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Highest Rating Dewalt has always been connected to high quality commercial tools for "the skills". This saw and accessories live up to the name. As technology changes (i.e. Battery compared to Corded), we are seeing some great improvements and features in the battery operated arena. Battery Charge Length, Power to the Tool, quick and versatile chargers and batteries, dual voltages etc. This tool has ALL of these features PLUS. I could have taken and attached some pictures, but HD and some other reviewers have done an excellent job here, so there is not much another picture can/would add. (Unless I show a picture of a project I am using this on, two of which I have not started as of this review) What I can do is highlight some features you should note on the pictures like the keyless chuck lever on the right side of the tool housing near the blade, the "charge gauge" on the battery itself. What one cannot necessarily "feel" by looking at pictures is the fact that ALL of the "black colored" parts of this saw are a very nice rubberized finish that not only "feels" good to the hands, but physically supports controlling the tool in the various positions this type of tool often needs to be used. It has a "bit of weight" to it as well. This validates some level of the tools quality but also, once again, is an important aspect of "controllability" and balance of the tool. While a homeowner who does some decently sized home improvement projects can appreciate this tool, let me talk to its use by the Trades (Construction, Carpenters, Electricians, Plumbers etc.). These professionals can REALLY appreciate this tool, kit and all of its features. The quality build of the tool, the rubberized surfaces, the quick charging batteries and the power of the tool compared to a corded model. Additionally, the included "Contractor Bag helps the professionals keep the saw and all of the accessories together and easy to keep "in the vehicle" and move from "job to job" (even on the same site). I ordered this as I always wanted to add a reciprocating saw to my tools after some remodeling I have done over the years. When I REALLY NEEDED one and did not have one, I had to be creative. I am about to start two new projects ,a bathroom remodel and rebuilding an outdoor shower where I DO have a need for it on both. I also should note, as a FYI, that they include one "short" metal cutting blade (OK so I DID end up adding a picture that may be helpful:>) so you should consider picking up a blade (or blades) you need for your project or general needs. HD has some well priced Dewalt Blade assortment sets for this saw.
