Dewalt’s 20V Max cordless sliding miter saw is on sale now, for $249. It was on sale last December, for $274 after coupon. The $25 off coupon doesn’t apply to the miter saw this year, but the current price beats last year’s after-coupon price by another $25.
The DCS361 20V Max cordless 7-1/4″ miter saw is a good saw that’s compact, lightweight, and nicely portable. There are some larger cordless saws that I can barely move around with both hands, but this one can be carried around single-handled if you were so inclined.
My only gripe with this saw (I have a test sample from Dewalt) is a minor one. I find that blade changes aren’t quite as quick as Milwaukee’s cordless miter saws. Most users rarely change blades, but I sometimes have to change blades several times in the same project. Not because I wear blades dull, but because I sometimes need different blades when I switch to different materials.
Overall, this is one of the best cordless miter saws I’ve had the pleasure of using. $249 is a great price for the bare-tool. Unfortunately, the kit version isn’t on sale at the moment.
It’s the same price at Acme.
Update: It’s the same price at HD as well, thanks George!
The saw is one of the highest-ranked ones on Amazon, with the bare tool and kit versions earning 88% and 84% 5-star rankings, as of the time of this posting.
The kit is $349 at Acme Tool, but eligible for $25 off savings, bringing the price down to $324 with free shipping. The coupon does NOT work on the bare tool.
