Well, Dewalt’s FlexVolt miter saw Black Friday weekend deal is dead. The price is now back up to $699, or $799 with a free miter saw stand (Acme Tool).
But… there are good deals on Dewalt’s 20V Max cordless miter saws.
The DCS361 7-1/4″ sliding miter saw is a good saw. It’s compact, lightweight, and has good cutting capacity. It doesn’t have a 10″ or 12″ blade, and isn’t engineered with a brushless motor, but that’s okay. It’s a convenient portable saw and it excels at what it’s designed for.
Right now the bare tool (DCS361B) is on sale for $299 at Amazon, and is eligible for their $25 off $100+ promo. The kit, which comes with a 4.0Ah battery pack and charger, is on sale for $349, and is also eligible for a $25 off $100+ promo.
So, the out the door price at checkout is $324 for the kit, and $274 for the bare tool. The regular prices are $399 and $319 for the kit and bare tool, respectively.
While you might need a larger saw to handle your trim crosscutting needs, or for cutting shelving material, this saw can handle dimensional lumber and smaller trim with ease. I think it’s a very good “small job” saw.
I believe the saw has been discounted on Amazon for some time (a few weeks?), but today’s the first time I realized the $25 off $100+ discount stacked on top of the lower pricing.
