When working in dim work spaces the DCS373L2 includes a bright LED light with a 20-second delay. Since making precise cuts in metal an be tricky because of hard to see sigh lines; this saw includes DeWalt’s proprietary Multi-Coated SIGHT-LINE window that provides maximum abrasion resistance for a clear view of the cut. A high strength steel shoe ensures durability and also offers resistance against chip build-up and there is a lightweight magnesium upper guard. We like that other creature comforts such as rubber over molded grip handles and easy to adjust depth and bevel leavers are standard.
“After conducting extensive field research, we found there was a demand for a powerful circular saw that could cleanly cut a variety of metal construction materials. Our new cordless metal saw offers the speed and portability contractors need when making difficult cuts on the job site.”
