Whenever the deal is active, you add both items to your cart. Your cart should show the tools for roughly half price, thus making one tool free. Make sure that you select the right promo tool with matching SKU numbers.

It shows the option to pick the free tool but at checkout it wont let me pick my tool. How do i pick?

You have to wait until it is in stock. I checked for several days until the item i wanted was in stock. I purchased online and picked them up a few hours later at the order pick up parking place. Very convenient.

How do I select the free tool for this promotional offer?

It took me a few tries until it allowed me to pick the tool I wanted. A pop-up window came up after I added the batteries into my cart.

This handy-sized saw is a great addition to DeWalt's lineup of 20v MAX brushless tools. The 6-1/2 in. blade size makes this saw easier to handle but can still accomplish plenty of tasks. This saw feels great in the hand and isn't too heavy, depending on what capacity battery you're using. The handle plus the support at the front provide a comfortable grip while cutting. The LED light automatically turns on when you press the trigger and is a nice feature that helps improve visibility. All the levers and locks work as expected. Changing the cutting depth is a breeze. The lever to adjust the bevel is very tight out of the box, but once you get it loose, it's easy to move. Installing the blade is simple despite poor instructions in the manual. There is an Allen wrench attached to the saw itself, so you just pop that off, press down the spindle lock, and install. Operating the trigger feels natural and safe. The blade immediately stops as soon as you let go, thanks to the electronic brake. This saw feels plenty powerful and capable for a 20v cordless saw. It cuts quickly and cleanly. I wouldn't consider this saw to be quiet, however. It's not overly loud, but there are competitors with quieter options. The left-sided blade works well for this right-hander, providing decent sight lines. This saw comes with a dust chute attachment that very easily pops right on with no screws, but unfortunately, it's not the only piece you need to fit it to a shop vac hose. An adapter that is sold separately for $20-30 is required. One other minor quip is that the blade guard is made of plastic, which is disappointing considering the comparable 7-1/4 in. model has a metal blade guard and is cheaper at the time I'm writing this. Overall, I am impressed with this circular saw! Packs a punch for a more compact, cordless design.

The DEWALT 20-VOLT MAX BRUSHLESS CORDLESS 6-1/2 IN. CIRCULAR SAW (TOOL-ONLY) is a great upgrade of their 6 1/2 inch cordless saws. Favorable features include an LED worklight that illuminates the cutting area so where the blade contacts the work can be easily seen, a bracing handle at the front of the saw to steady the saw when cutting, brushless motor, a magnesium shoe, a dust port vacuum attachment and a rafter hook. The saw also comes with an electronic brake, allowing for a quick blade stop when the trigger is released. Features are included to allow for an easy blade change, which include a blade brake and a hex wrench that embeds in the handle. The one drawback and concern I have is the plastic lower blade guard. The guard wobbles quite a bit and isn't likely to be durable since it's plastic. Other than that, this is a good, quality saw that should provide many years of service.

I did not know how useful this battery powered saw could be until I got one!! Needed a support on my wood fence. Took the saw and a 2 x 4 to the back of the yard. Measured, marked sawed and installed in just a few minutes. Then one trip to the basement to return the saw and hammer. No extension cords to roll out , then roll back up.The Dewalt 20 volt saw is small and easy to handle when cutting a miter, but heavy enough to hold true on a line. It has plenty of power to cut through a 2 x 4 without slowing down.

I really like the design and quality of this saw. It’s nice to have the Allen tool for blade change attach right in the handle so it won’t be so easy to lose. The feature of the light sure makes it easy to keep the saw on the cut line and I find the weight of the saw not to heavy for a full day of working with it. The rafter hook is a great feature and the way it folds down out of the way when not needed is great. The speed and power is suitable for framing and most construction jobs that I do.

What a lightweight little powerhouse of a circular saw! I got the DeWalt 6 ½” circular saw for three reasons: the company reputation, my personal experience with their products, and the size and weight of the tool. Sometimes whether in my DIY garage, a neighbor’s back yard, or wherever, I need a circular saw that doesn’t require me to drag a 150 foot drop cord. This tool is very well qualified to get the job done. It comes with everything you need to get started. What’s really handy if you’re working in the shop? The sawdust collection port snaps right on to the frame - no screws! The 18-Tooth carbide tipped general purpose blade cuts quite well, and the 5000+ rpm motor gets the work done quickly and neatly. And if you need to change to a finer blade, no problem. The hex wrench blade tool is locked in the rear of the handle, so that it is always available and never get lost. The bevel will go 5 degrees in excess of the standard 45-degree bevel, for certain instances, very handy. It cut my 2x4 and 2x6 lumber with no effort whatsoever while making a new work bench for a neighbor. And with the 3-year warranted, you are well covered. I keep this saw in the front of my shelf now!

I used this saw to cut 2x6 and 2x10 treated lumber for a new deck. It cut through those boards like butter. Worked way better than I thought it would and the nice led light made it easier to finish at the end of the day when the sun was setting. Good power for a smaller saw. Looking to get the 60v next.

kinda nice saw
Just got this saw I think it has real potential, do not know how it cuts yet. but these are my very initial thoughts on it on right out of the box. the depth setting is poor, hard to read, the handle gets in the way for the smaller figures/depth, from 1/4" through to 1" very hard to see, which is where the saw will be of most use. I will be adding some marking colorant to the notch and bracket edge to help delineate depth marking, The way it is designed it tends to hide the moving mark, on mine, there are two marks on the steel, which dose not help. you have to have the saw in two different orientations, for small depth of cuts looks through the handle towards the blade, for deeper cuts you have look down at the handle, along the blade. I have been used to the Ryobi tools where depth setting is consistent, and readable from only one direction you do not need to tilt and turn the saw to see the depth markings, and the markings are clear and easy to see. What there is no rip guide? The rafter hook and balance is a little wanting, I have doubts that the hook will hold the tool it almost looks as if it was put on backwards, perhaps when on 2x wood it will pinch fit, it feels in hand that the tool will just fall off a horizontal board. Dang, give me light. not unreadable red lines (Ryobi's laser line hopeless in daylight), the light is great and will help in holding the line even in shade, or dark, Why put fractional points on the base, why not set the cut mark on a whole number, what the heck is 1 - 1/8? WHY? Put the blade 1 inch in from the edge of the base on one side and 4 inches on the other side not 1 -1/8 one side and 4-1/8 on the other? WHY? The best part of the whole tool Electric break, the major reason for getting this tool is it stops and stops fast. My Ryobi has a run-on of about 15 seconds. which is longer than several earlier Ryobi models. let the trigger go blade stops, and lifts upwards away from the cut. to be seen how that acts on cutting. The big reason for getting this tool alone. The next thing is the dust shute, makes attaching a vacuum to it possible, also, why take a notch out of the base just leave it square, the notch is not that big, but!!!!!!

I enjoy the large numbers and ease of use, however the rivets that holds on the metal end of tape were not seated enough at the Chinese factory so there’s a 1/8 inch plus play from it on the end. So, I get to add 1/8 to my measurements or smack rivets with punch and hammer and hopefully fix it. TBH I haven’t screwed with it yet, disappointed I would have to do this to something brand new and have been using my old tape.
