This is my first post here. I have monitoring the price of this cordless circular and believe this is the lowest it has gone by far. Hope this will help someone. Thanks.

Why? I have used this at least 2 dozen times without any problems whatsoever. For this price, it's an excellent deal.

Because there are a lot of tool snobs. It's an 18v rather than 20v or even 20v XR brushless. Which makes it a pretty old tool. That not withstanding if you can get by using it then it's a good price for it. I couldn't use it myself but I'm sure some others could. Keep in mind that not long ago the XR brushless version was about $100. But good post, and hopefully the people who can use it will appreciate it.

It's not the voltage that's the problem trust me. These are ni-cad batteries which are horrible. Dewalts 20v max is actually 18v but li-ion batteries. With nicad....as the battery level drops so does the performance leaving more to be desired. I'm not a tool snob but I would recommend anyone still using nicad to just give li-ion a try and they won't look back

I don't need convincing, like I said these won't due for me. Everything I'm using is 20v XR or better. But I'm sure you're aware there are many people out there with these batteries and in this ecosystem, for them this may be a deal. But I agree, I'd never go back from lithium.

There are definitely better saws for wood. However, these things are great for use as metal cutting saws. The 3700RPM will help carbides live longer.

I used to have one and "upgraded" to a newer 20V saw without checking the RPM. The 5000+ RPM of the newer saws is great for wood but destroys carbides cutting steel. I ended up buying the 5.5" 20V metal cutting circular saw and one of these with some duct tape over the opening catches just as many chips.

I wish I hadn't spent $150 on the 5.5" and just bought another one of these.

The metal cutting version of the 18v (dcs372b) is also priced at $60 now too. Just mentioning because I couldn't figure out whether there were any differences between the two saws other than blade/blade size. (https://www.cpopowertools.com/dew...lt,pd.html)

I picked up the one OP posted (thank you OP!!!). I had just been browsing for one on craigslist. My newer cordless tools are Milwaukees, but I've still got three pristine Dewalt 18v xrp batteries that I will keep around as long as my Dewalt nailer is in use. Could not justify spending the money on Milwaukee for a cordless circ saw, a tool I don't see getting heavy use long term. But right now, working on an upstairs bathroom where space is tight, it's going to be a godsend not having to either run downstairs to the miter saw or hook up a corded saw every time I need to trim up some 1x or 2x material.

Just for anyone on the fence, Dewalt makes an adapter that allows you to use the new li-ion batteries with the old tools. Yes, they're the same voltage!

That'll be helpful info for many, but they should also know that the adapter does not work with every Dewalt 18v tool, e.g., it is not compatible with my nail gun.
