Kobalt has come out with a new 24V Max brushless dual bevel sliding miter saw, KMS 0724A-03, with a 7-1/4″ blade size and
2×14 2-1/4 x 9-3/8″ cutting capacity (as per the user manual).
The new Kobalt cordless miter saw features an aluminum table, which they say makes it lighter for easier transport. They say the base also has a built-in 6″ extension table, but we’re not quite sure what that means.
It’s bundled with a 6.0Ah Li-ion battery and a charger.

- 4500 RPM
- Dual bevel with 48° max angle

It’s nice to see the Kobalt 24V Max cordless power tool platform growing. They came out with several new tools and combo kits last year, and the lineup currently includes a sander, oscillating multi-tool, jig saw, one-handed reciprocating saw, a jobsite blower, a 4″ circular saw, several outdoor power tools, and of course “core” tools such as a drill, impact driver, circular saw, and reciprocating saw.
More tool options are good for everyone.
As of the time of this posting, the Dewalt DCS361B is $279 for the bare tool, or $369 for the 1-battery kit.
The Milwaukee M18 Fuel 7-1/4″ sliding miter saw is $399 for the bare tool, or $499 for the kit.
