Behold, the Dewalt FlexVolt track saw, model DCS520T2!
The last time I asked, I was told that the Dewalt FlexVolt track saw would be due in the USA around April 2017, so it’s still a bit away. But it IS coming to the USA, which is good news.
You can buy a corded Dewalt track saw right now, but there’s appeal in cordless solutions, or at least I think so. Most users still have to deal with a vacuum hose, but a hose is easier to deal with than a hose and a power cord.
I’m a Festool track saw guy. I made the plunge – ha, get it?! – a few years ago, and haven’t looked back with even an ounce of regret.
In my experience, my plunge-cutting Festool track saw cuts cleaner and with greater precision than any regular circular saw I’ve used before or since. It can make cuts not quite easy or perfectly safe with an un-tracked circular saw. I haven’t used it with my Festool MFT table as much as I expected – yet – but the duo will see a lot of use in an upcoming project.
I’m eager to see what the upcoming Dewalt FlexVolt track saw can do. Very eager.
ETA: April 2017
I should point out that it has NOT yet been announced for the USA market. There are “Coming Soon” flyers floating around, but that’s it. I’ve got ants in my pants, and figured that it’ll help quiet my anticipation and excitement if I shared the news.
