Dewalt has launched a new FlexVolt 60V Max brushless 9″ cut-off saw, DCS692X2 for the kit.
The new Dewalt cordless 9″ cut-off saw is designed for cutting concrete, pavestones, steel, and rebar.
It delivers 6,600 RPM and its 9″ blade can make cuts up to 3-1/4″ deep.
The Dewalt DCS692 features a protected battery box which is large enough to accommodate Dewalt’s highest capacity 15Ah battery.
It has built-in Wireless Tool Control functionality, which is designed to enhance runtime and worksite productivity by allowing it to be linked to other compatible tools and operate cord-free.
(The Dewalt FlexVolt dust extractor is the only vacuum I know of that responds to “Wireless Tool Control” activation.)
The saw also has a dual-sided water feed system for OSHA Table 1 compliant dust management.
An integrated “heavy-load indicator light” provides “real-time power and runtime feedback.”
Dewalt says the saw can be used for horizontal or vertical cuts, and features a 3-position adjustable handle. The 5-position guard helps ensure users can choose the best cutting angle for visibility and mobility in confined spaces.

Dewalt DCS692 vs DCS692 FlexVolt Cut-Off Saws
This is not Dewalt’s first FlexVolt 9″ cut-off saw – they launched the very similar DCS690 back in mid-2018.
Based on the product specs and imagery, it looks like the Dewalt DCS692 has an upgraded battery box, whereas the DCS690 launched a few years prior to the brand’s large FlexVolt 15Ah battery.
The DCS690 also seems to lack the DCS692’s Wireless Tool Control feature.
It is not yet clear what else might be new or different with the DCS692.
The DCS690 is sold out at all of the retailers I checked, suggesting that it is being replaced by the DCS692.
There could be other differences, but the DCS692 looks to be a minor update of the DCS690 cut-off saw, mainly with a larger battery box and wireless FlexVolt vac activation functionality.
Readers and tool users have been asking for more Dewalt FlexVolt cordless power tools, as the brand’s focus seems to have shifted recently to 20V Max-compatible FlexVolt Advantage tools. Here you go!
While this is more of an upgrade or update to an existing product, it’s still a new FlexVolt cordless power tool.
