This is certainly not the cheapest option on the UK market with a £500+ price tag. That said, you do get the mitre saw, two 4.0AH batteries and the charger required to operate it. It also comes with a blade so as you can get started right away. 

It is fairly new to the UK market, but those who have bought it so far have given this solid ratings. That is always a very good sign. Ratings can change over time. If they do, I will update this review to reflect those findings.

As a trusted affiliate website catering to UK projects, I will explain its features, performance, and value, helping you decide if it's the perfect saw for your needs.

My Review

There are only a few reviews as this cordless saw is pretty new to the UK market. I did however get an opportunity to use this one myself, and hers is my opinion.

Any cordless mitre saw like the DCS365M2 are great for portability. You can move them around from site to site, and also from the garage or workshop to the outdoors. I found this one is lightweight easy enough to transport. (It's around 17kg so still takes a good bit of effort. However, for construction workers or site joiners, this could be a great choice.

I made sure the battery was fully charged and I was able to make around 200 cuts on some hard wood, some softwood and skirting boards. That's about enough to be able to do a full day's work so pretty impressive. It's worth knowing that this saw comes with 2 batteries and a charger. Each battery is 4.0Ah so plenty of power from that.

Dewalt have this XPS shadow line cut indicator, which allows for really quick alignment of the blade and also illuminates the cutting line and I did find that really useful. I found the 11 positive stops gave me plenty of choice from 0 and 48° right and 0 and 48° left

The only slight downside that I noticed, is that the back fence can't be adjusted. It is not a huge problem, but would have been a nice feature for some buyers. I noticed on a couple of websites this is shown as a double bevel, but it isn't. It also doesn't have a brushless motor so worth knowing that.

While the initial investment is high, the saw's quality, performance, and time saved make it a worthwhile choice for serious DIYers and trades people who value flexibility and accuracy.

Experience & Expertise

Over the years I have used hundreds of tools and know a lot of people who also use tools every day. I made this website to help anyone who needs to do work around their house or garden, or has an interest in DIY.

I simply tell you what I know, without all the waffle, and try to explain things as simply as I can. I don't get sent products to test, or do paid reviews, and anything I write is my own experience, along with my own research.

I just like to let people know.

My Verdict

This is a high quality saw which most buyers really do seem to like. The real downside is the price, but that does include two batteries and a charger.
