Make sure your trigger is not in the center it either has to be all the way to the left all the way to the right

What is the dust port connector that is compatible with this saw?

Asked by KB June 6, 2020
1
Answer

The manual for this saw recommends wearing a dust mask when using this tool. It also has instructions on assembling the dust port which is an optional accessory. I would recommend calling Dewalt direct for further information as well as optional accessories.

What blade, if one, comes with the unit? Recommendations on a good blade?

Asked by Greg May 22, 2020
1
Answer

Greg it comes with a 24 tooth Dewalt blade. Not one of the Flexvolt blades that used to come with their Flexvolt saws. I personally prefer the Diablo 60 tooth blades, but if doing more rough cuts the provided blade will get you going for a bit.

(What's this)
This cordless could almost be a replacement for your corded circular saw. First thing, I am a very capable DIYer, not a builder and tested this saw on pressure treated lumber which we know is the bane of circular saws abilities . this saw with battery is heavy, it weighs in at 11 pounds , that is 2 pounds more than a similar competitors model using the same 9 amp battery. so carrying this up and down a ladder may be a consideration. The included rafter hook was far more convenient than I first thought. I was able to hang the saw on lumber while I measured, etc, which eliminates the up and down or tripping on the saw accidentally. The battery charged quickly, it arrived with 1 bar of charge and was fully charged in under 30 minutes. The included blade was ok for rough work, it is a bit of a thin kerf blade which i found hard to keep straight on wet lumber, but tracked fine on dried 2x6's . I tried this out on pressure treated 2x6s and it went through them almost as well as my corded saw. I did need to go a little slower but not baby the cuts. I was able to make 41 cuts on a charge, which was not bad at all. having only one battery slows you down, but I was able to use a 20 volt battery from another tool to keep going while the battery charged, but I did notice a difference when cutting the wet lumber with the standard battery. This is a really nice saw and comes with a good quality storage bag, I personally like that this saw takes standard 7 1/4 inch blades, You can purchase a similar kit with 2 batteries which you may want to consider, but if you are not cutting lumber lal day, one battery will do the trick

The Dewalt flexvolt 60 volt Brushless circular saw is awesome. The 7 1/4 circular saw is light weight even with the battery installed. The saw is very powerful for a battery operated saw. The light on the saw shows exactly where you are cutting and you can use multi volt batteries. An easy saw to operate and has a good balance to it. The saw is very durable and would last a long time. I would recommend this saw to all my family and friends. A very well made saw.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a great portable circular saw by Dewalt. It is a type of saw that my husband and I consider essential for our projects. It's easy to hold with two hands and I really like that it is battery operated. Our previous circular saw, that we bought years ago had to be plugged in, did not have the safety features or the adjustments that this saw provides. It is well balanced in the hand and easy to manage, though you do have to use both hands to push a button in order to pull the trigger to start it. This is a great safety feature as you will not accidentally turn the saw on. It has an LED light so you can see where you're cutting. It also has blade and angle adjustments. This saw can be used to cut wood for almost any purpose. That it is portable makes it even more versatile.

This Dewalt 60V Max Brushless 7-1/4 Cordless Circular Saw with accessories is a great package deal. The kit includes a Flexvolt Battery and charger with 2,465 unit watts out. The saw has a 57 degree bevel, 2-9/16th in depth cut capacity, and an electric break that stops after the trigger is released.It puts out 47% more power than the DCS575 60 Volt Max. With the no-load speed of 5800 RPM it delivers the power of a corded circular saw.It's portable and has the convenience of cordless through Dewalts Flexvolt technology.In addition to all the saws great features it also has an integrated LED for increased visibility and cut accuracy, and a rafter hook for easy storage. I'm so glad to be rid of using so many old corded tools. This is a must have saw for the DIY and advanced professional, it's a real work horse that just won't quit.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I recently ordered and received the DeWalt flexvolt 60-volt max, brushless 7-1/4-inch circular saw. This is truly a heavy-duty piece of cordless equipment. When I first took it out of the box, I thought to myself, this looks odd. After a few moments of examination, it dawned on me that the cutting blade is on the right-hand side of the saw. I have several corded and non-corded circular saws and all of them have the saw blade on the left side. When I first handled it, I thought to myself, this is not going to work for me, but after actually trying the saw out, it actually made very little difference. In fact, it was just as easy to use as any of my other saws. I got less sawdust thrown at me and I was very quickly able to get used to looking over my right hand to view my cut line. I like this saw very much and it is a real work horse. It cut 2-inch stock like butter. I cannot actually attest to how long the saw will hold a charge, but I made about 10-12 cuts on a 2x4 and I could not detect any noticeable power loss. The saw also has quick release adjustments for blade depth of cut and blade angle. The only thing that may be a drawback to some is the saws weight. It is actually heavier than my corded Makita saw. In summary, this is a very nice cordless saw and is definitely up to par with what one expects from a DeWalt product. The only very small knocks I have are its weight and the blade on the right-hand side of the saw (which I got used to very quickly). In regard to the weight of the saw, this probably cannot be avoided due to the battery. I’ve included a few pictures below to give an idea of the saws appearance and size.

This saw is a beast
I had previously been using the Gen 1 Flexvolt Sidewinder saw and then seen this new Gen 2 version was going to release soon and felt I needed to pick one up. Cosmetically the Gen 1 and this version look essentially the same. Spec wise they are also very similar. This one boasts a more powerful motor that matches the specs of Dewalt's FV Wormdrive style saw though. This newer version also comes with a 9.0 FV battery as opposed to the 6.0 FV battery that the older version comes with. Charger wise I know this is Dewalt's new two stage charger but the included charger is a 6amp charger where the previous version is a 8amp charger with fan. With that said while the included charger between the two seems like a slight downgrade I can say so far the new two stage charger seems to do just fine and charges the 9.0 battery quickly. I gave this a 4 star rating because I have not had long term use with the tool but so far I am very pleased. It is a beast of a saw that does not bog down with use when I paired it with a 40 tooth Diablo (fighting chicken) blade lol. The included 24T blade is ok but I just prefer the Diablo blades and prefer a finer tooth for my applications. Overall I feel this saw is a nice upgrade to the Gen 1 and even if the only improvement was the battery upgrade it would be worth it but the saw itself seems to be quite the workhorse and has a nice light and rafter hook. If in the market for a new sidewinder or you are already on the Dewalt battery platform and looking to upgrade your saw this one is one to consider imo.
