[Rona] Dewalt Cordless Circular Saw - 7 1/4" - 20V- $139

Get the performance you expect in a corded saw with the portability of a cordless saw with this Dewalt circular saw. It features a brushless motor that provides exceptional run time and power. It offers a depth of cut of 2 inches at 45 degrees and 2 9/16 inches at 90 degrees for versatility. The electric brake offers added safety, and the 57-degree bevel capacity ensures you can make a wide range of cuts. Bare tool. This is the XR variant and if you are already into the Dewalt ecosystem it will be an excellent addition to your lineup.

Excellent saw, I replaced an aging corded saw with this and I have to say it did not disappoint.

has the price been lower? Is it a better deal with the battery set? (I don't have too many batteries and want more). How much does that go for? Thanks in advance!

If you already have a charger then buying extra batteries might be the better option

This saw is power hungry and eats through batteries.

I've got two 2 AMP and one 5 AMP batteries and two chargers. What run time do you think I can get if I need this? Seems to take about 2 hours to charge the 2 amp and 4 for the 4 amp ...

I suspect that time will vary based on the material you are cutting, harder woods, softer etc. I was able to cut 10 4x4’s, 24 2x4’s 8- 8x10’s (pressure treated) and hadn’t worn out a 5 amp battery. Again I suspect it’s a YMMV type of thing. Also had installed a brand new blade which I’m sure helped as well. Hope that helps. As far as battery charge times go, I have a fast charger so most everything charges in under an hour.

Left handed? Yes and no. This is like every corded circular saw that most people have ever used. (Unless you have a worm drive saw). I’m a carpenter and use circular saws every day at work. may just be because I’m used to it, but I don’t like them the other way. (I’m right handed)

Like the poster said above, most circular saws were always (left handed) like this traditionally. It's a little bit safer for the right hander because in front, your hand doesn't need to cross over on top of the blade, and from behind, if it comes off, doesn't hit your legs and stuff. Also, might feel a bit safer having the blade a little further away from you as well.

Biggest gripe about having the blade on the right side is the inability to see the blade without leaning over. My plan is to try a left handed one in store and see which one feels better. If you're new to circular saws, try both of them and one of them is going to feel a lot better and natural.. I would go with that one.

that's not what my saw is like. 1) sometimes you need to actually look at the blade when you are cutting. 2) sometimes you need to manually lift the protective cover. in both cases it will be incredibly inconvenient to perform these tasks with this type of saw as this Dewalt. I would not buy it.

I'm somewhat of a carpenter to and using blade right saws is like cutting blind.
