The model number is DCS389X1

can’t this cut a metal barrel in half?

Asked by joser31g November 16, 2020

A conditional answer: I have not cut a barrel myself but I offer the following, it has the capability depending on several circumstances, such as the barrel being empty, the sawblade be in good condition, and there not being any flammable or combustible material residue inside the barrel. In my opinion it has the strength to cut the steel.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It pops the blade out it's almost too much power. Beats dragging a cord around all day

Outstanding power and a great upgrade.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This review will be comparing the 60V DCS389 saw to an older 18V DC385 saw that I have had for years. For the purpose of my testing, I used the DCA1820 20V MAX to 18V adapter in the DC385. This is because I have replaced my failing 18V packs with the newer 20V packs. During the comparison, a new DWA4169 blade was used in each saw to eliminate blade differences. The positives: The DCS389 has an amazing power increase over the older DC385. This older saw is approaching 16-17 years of use and has been a good saw over the years, but the power is a fraction of the new DSC389, even when running on 20V. The DCS389 has power to spare when doing carpenter and demolition style cutting. In my comparison I used dimensional lumber and OSB sheeting to simulate the cutting one may normally do. I also embedded screws in the lumber to simulate cutting through what one may encounter in normal use of demolition. In my comparison, the DCS389 did not pull down when cutting like its older counterpart. The power of the 60V pack and the brushless motor really sets this saw apart from the older generations. The older DC385 would do the work, but at a much slower pace and without as clean a cut. The light is an interesting feature of the DCS389. While there have not been many times where I have needed the light in my uses, I can see having it could be beneficial in areas where there isn't as much light on projects. I do like the feature and am happy it was incorporated in this design. The DCS also is a smoother operating saw as well. This is due to upgrades in design and components but also due to the substantial weight increase over the DC385. The trigger and variable speed of the DCS389 is also far superior to my older DC385. The blade change chuck really has not changed all that much outside of the fact the DCS389 is spring loaded and locks itself while the DC385 needs to be pushed back to lock it. Both are very usable to me. The negative: The weight. The overall weight is the only downfall that I will honestly put on the saw but it could also be seen one of its most helpful features. As tested, the DCS389 tipped the scales at 10 pounds 14 ounces with a 9AH Flexvolt pack where as my older DC385 was only 6 pounds 9 ounces using the DCA1820 with a 4AH 20V pack. This is not a small difference and in fact, when I had my wife, who is not used to operating these saws, use both of these, she did not like the DCS389 due to the greater weight. She preferred the weight of the DC385. My son who is in high school and getting into the shop classes made the same observations about the weight but chose the DCS389 in the end in spite of the weight. Now I had mentioned that it while weight was a negative it was also a helpful feature. Because of the increased weight, the DCS389 exhibits less vibration to the user as you use it in our experience as a family. This would translate into an easier time controlling the saw and overall cleaner cuts from our experience. Having extra weight certainly helps stabilize the saw and keep it more comfortable to operate while cutting. I believe that the weight would be an issue for extended periods overhead work or if you did not have the forearm strength to handle the tool. For the reason of the arm strength, my wife would take the DC385 over the DCS389. I am overall, very impressed with the DCS389. The saw a solid saw and feels good in the hands. Despite the weight, it feels balanced and works well in different positions. The looks of the saw are sleek, modern, and eye catching in my opinion. My son also likes the overall look. The power difference of the saw when compared to a DC385 is remarkable. There is simply no comparison. The DCS389 is going to have the power to do whatever you would ask of it. The run time is good and will keep you working much longer than previous generations of these saws. I would recommend this saw for anyone looking to upgrade to a new powerhouse reciprocating saw in the Dewalt line but yet have a saw with operation that you are very familiar to.
Power with a punch!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] With the new 9AH battery this reciprocating saw has more than enough juice to get any job done. Great for demo work or even cutting small tree branches. Very smooth tool with very limited vibration that gets transferred to the user. Additionally the small LED is great for dark or portly lite areas. I know previous models have a fast changer but this 6AH is plenty considering they’ve up’d the battery from 6AH to 9AH. Would highly recommend to get any job done around the house or construction site!!

Excellent tool!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this awesome Flexvolt Reciprocating Saw a few weeks ago and have had some great jobs to put it to work on. It has performed above and beyond my expectations. The battery life is incredible for this kind of saw, and it is much better than any I have had previously. The blades are very easy to install, and go on and off without any problems. The power is great for all types of material. I used it on metal, wood, and even some plastics and it cuts like butter! This is a great saw for a professional, and would make any owner proud to have in their tool kits! I would highly recommend getting this saw to all of my friends and coworkers, and you will not need any other after you see how great this one works!

Insane power in a battery operated unit
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Upon opening the box I saw the saw came in a beautiful heavy duty Dewalt carrying bag. The charger is compact sized and easily hung up in a shop or work trailer. The 40v battery has a meter on the front so you can see how much of a charge is left. The tool itself is heavy duty, has a rubberized finish in places, and has a quick connect feature for the blades. The only thing I didn’t like about the aesthetics of the tool is the guide is fixed, so if you’re using a longer blade you can’t adjust it to get more bite out of the blade on longer blades. The charger is super quiet compared to some other battery chargers I own. After charging the battery I attached the tool. The tool/battery combo is a little on the heavy side, but nothing that wasn’t manageable. I decided to go in my pasture and test it out on some chicken trees that have plagued my land for some time now. I can’t say enough good things about how much power this thing has. It tore through the branches of the chicken trees and even cut them down to stumps like they were paper. All in all I cut down about 30 small trees and trimmed a bunch of branches. How much battery did I use? About 1 bar (3 total) was all it used. The tool never struggled and just ate the trees like it was nothing. I switched out to a bi-metal blade and put it to the test again. It tore through 1/4inch angle Orrin like a hot knife through butter. The blades wore out before even using another bar of the battery. I have a corded sawzall that isn’t as powerful as this tool. Plus the added convenience of battery power. I definitely recommend this to anyone needing tons of power in a portable package.

Dewalt 60v reciprocating saw
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like this reciprocating saw. It’s on the heavier side but it cuts quick,very comfortable and it’s very well built has enough power to cut through just about anything. I would definitely recommend this dewalt saw to all my friends and family.
by Adam28
Solid build on the 60 volt
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Power tools have come along way. This tool offers the power of corded with the ease of batteries. This unit doesn’t feel flimsy in you hands like some other brands I have used. Great run time with the included battery. Quick and easy blade changes. The charger is a nice unit than you get with the 20v tool kits. I do miss the 36v blade holder as you could put a blade in sideways for the really odd cut. Overall a great tool, should last for years
by Lbeachy8656
heavy duty, very powerful
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] great saw for demo and rough work. heavy but very powerful. as good as coreded. saw is more heavy than the corded but cordless is less cumbersome. tool free blade change. had a few issues charging the battery the first time but i reset the battery in the charger and it works great now. fuel gauge on the battery lets you know the charge level. variable speed trigger for control but this saw is for heavy use.
by duuuugg
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thing is a beast. The flexvolt 60 volt batteries make all the difference. I was looking for a recip saw that could be used on any material and I found it. I definitely recommend

Beast of a saw!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This saw is in--wait for it--credible. I mean, holy moly what an animal. It'll chew through anything you throw at it without missing a beat. I've had to saw through solid aluminum, steel, hardened nails and I couldn't believe the power that this saw brings to the worksite. Not to mention the battery performance. The saw came with one bar charged on the battery and I swear it went a good 5 hours on that ONE BAR before I had to charge it. I would highly recommend this saw to anyone in demolition or heavy duty construction. It's precise and powerful and easily the best reciprocating saw I've ever used. The only con I would say is the weight. I'm quite a strong guy but if you're doing a lot of cutting above your head all day, every day, this may not be the model for you. Can't wait to tackle more projects with it!
