DeWalt DW535 7-1/4" Worm Drive Circular Saw Overview

DeWalt DW535 7-1/4″ Worm Drive Circular Saw Preview

DeWalt released its newest worm drive 7-1/4″ circular saw, the DW535, which is geared for framers, concrete formers, and other professional circular saw users. What’s new in this saw is its use of DeWalt’s new Toughcord cord retention and protection system, something that finally takes into account the fact that most contractors and construction workers let down their tools via the extension cord when on ladders or second stories. The system works by reinforcing the cord at its entry point with a stiff boot and also integrating a 45 degree angle plus four discrete anchor points. When you look at the tool, and DeWalt’s provided cutaways of its internals, you can easily tell this is a serious quality tool that is meant for the professional end user.
