          First DeWalt Disappointment
          First Home Depot failed me, I ordered for in store pickup and they didn't have my free battery so i had to cancel and order again but for home delivery. I waited patiently and when it arrived i made sure to fully charge battery yet this thing won't cut a 2 x 4. The included DeWalt blade is a "framing blade"... Unbelievable. DeWalt customer service trying to get me to mail it to a warranty center pr something and wait for it to be mailed back. NAH, its going back to Home Depot tomorrow.

            You can use a rip fence
            The channel that the rip fence rides in was mis-cast / cut, but a few minutes with a Dremel tool and it will fit. Not sure what it does to the warranty. Great little saw otherwise

              Small 20V battery
              Arrived before the tool arrived, placed to charge immediately. Could not wait to use it and drain it completely to charge again. All my tools were DeWalt.

                Fantastic battery life in a compact design.
                I purchased this battery to pair up with the 20v ratchet along with my arsenal of DeWalt tools. I love the fact it's a 4aH battery that's almost the same size as the old 2aH batteries so I'm getting double the usage out of my tools before having to recharge vs my old batteries. I highly recommend DeWalt batteries for anyone who is looking for something that will last. I've owned my 20v DeWalt gear since 2014 and still have yet to have a battery fail on me! Highly recommended!

                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.
