This question has been coming up a lot lately – is Dewalt coming out with a cordless miter saw? Specifically, a lot of folks have been asking about the potential for a Dewalt 20V cordless miter saw.
Given the recent high volume of chatter, I reached out to Dewalt and here’s what they said:
Glad to hear there’s excitement from your readers about what they hope will join DEWALT’s 20V line!
Unfortunately at this time I don’t have any information about a 20V miter saw, but I will be sure to keep you updated!
You might be thinking of course that’s what they would say, and you’re right. But if a cordless miter saw was coming down the pipeline very soon, Dewalt’s reps would have said “we can’t share information right now, please don’t say anything until we can get you more details.”
I interpret the response to mean no, there’s nothing firm in the works right now.
There already are a couple of cordless miter saws on the market (Makita’s comes to mind, and there is also one by Ryobi and an older Bosch), so it is possible. It doesn’t seem that there are any technical hurdles that are blocking Dewalt from coming out with a 20V Max Li-ion cordless miter saw.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Dewalt had one or even several new working prototypes. But that doesn’t mean this is a product they’re planning to release. Just because such a tool is possible doesn’t mean it’s practical.
I should point out that Dewalt used to make a 24V cordless miter saw for European customers (DW017).
If you ask me, I think we’re more likely to see a new Dewalt brushless cordless circular saw much sooner than a cordless miter saw. And no, that’s not said with a wink.
What do you think? Is a Dewalt cordless miter saw – or any brand’s cordless miter saw – something you would seriously consider buying?
