When cordless circular saws first came out, they were a novelty. They were good for some jobs, but no replacement for a corded model.
Well, they’ve gotten much better and DeWalt has taken it to another level with the Flexvolt Advantage Circular Saw.
First off, it uses a full-size 7 and a quarter-inch blade instead of those smaller ones, so the depth of cut matches or exceeds their own corded saw.
The degree of bevel is also equal. But get this: this battery-powered saw actually has a higher blade speed than the corded version, by 300 RPMs!
The reason is their Battery ID technology. The saw knows when you pair it with their 20V or 60V Flexvolt batteries so it can give you 77% more power than their regular existing 20V Circular Saw.
That power means that this saw can do the same work as its corded cousins, and that makes your job easier.
