DeWalt Li-ion Saw Offers Lightweight, Versatile Cutting Solution


Sometimes, farm shop tools can be too heavy or too specialized to handle all of a farmer’s cutting needs. A solution might lie in a traditional tool with modern features, such as the DCS380B 20V MAX Li-ion Reciprocating Saw from DeWalt.

Highlighted features include:

  • Four-position blade clamp for flush cutting and increased positional versatility with tool free blade changes.
  • 1-1/8-inch stroke length delivers a faster cutting speed.
  • Variable speed trigger with 0-3,000 spm provides increased blade control and faster cut speed.
  • Pivoting adjustable shoe extends blade life and allows depth of cut control.
  • Rubber over molded comfort grip delivers optimal comfort and control.
  • Double oil sealed shaft resists contamination and increases durability.

The saw, which weighs 6 pounds, comes with a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee. Accessories include a 12-piece bi-metal blade set and a 10-piece bi-metal blade set.
