The Dewalt FlexVolt sliding miter saw kit, DHS790AT2, is on sale at Amazon for $699, which is $100 lower than its regular price.
$699? How’s that a sale price?!
Well, you get the latest and greatest Dewalt 120V Max DHS790A 12″ double bevel compound sliding miter saw, a dual port fast charger, 2x 6.0Ah FlexVolt batteries, and an adapter that allows it to be powered from any typical AC outlet.
The miter saw by itself, plus the 120V AC adapter, is $649 via Amazon. So, for just $50 more for the kit, you get the dual port charger and 2x FlexVolt battery packs, which can be used for any Dewalt 20V Max, 60V Max, or 120V Max power tool.
FlexVolt battery packs, which are hard to find in stock these days, retail at $149 each. So for $50 more than the bare tool, you get $300 in batteries, not to mention the rapid charger.
Correction: I either wasn’t aware or had forgotten, but you can get a 2-pack of FlexVolt battery packs for $199!
The saw is pricey, but it’s also the best miter saw I’ve ever used, and that includes corded miter saws. It’s certainly the most powerful cordless miter saw I’ve ever used, and I believe the only 12″ one on the market.
Did I mention that it’s equipped with a brushless motor? Dewalt says it can make up to 289 cross cuts in 3-1/4″ baseboard molding per battery pair charge. As it’s a 120V Max FlexVolt tool, it requires 2 batteries to operate.
Although I donated our review sample of the Dewalt DWS780 sliding miter saw (reviewed here), and can’t do a direct hands-on comparison, I’d assume that this FlexVolt model was heavily based off of it. Based on specs and capabilities, I think that the FlexVolt miter saw could very well stand in for the DWS780, especially since it comes stock with an AC adapter.
But, keep in mind that a lot of retailers have a special going on right now, where you can get a free Dewalt miter saw stand with your DWS780 purchase.
It looks like Amazon and Home Depot are both offering this $699 sale price. Others might too, but right now it looks like the FlexVolt miter saw kit is full price everywhere else.
