Owned and use this often for the last couple of years now. The cast shoe is nice and flat and never had trouble with it twisting list other stamped shoe saws. It rips through plywood all day without effort. Cutting 2x lumber works fine as long as you have a nice sharp blade and a larger battery (4ah+); it cuts through the lumber just fine but will burn through the battery pretty quick. These things in mind, I rarely have a need for my corded saw, this little guy does 90% of the work with much more convenience. Cuts nice and straight. I know exactly the width from the shoe edge to blade on my setup, and use it daily with a long guide to dice up plywood lengthwise to prep it for the tablesaw. Other saws I have had would bind or cut crooked when the shoe deflected, and the DeWalt has not had this problem. My go to little saw!
not heavy.. easy to work with, doesn't drain the battery.. Glad I bought it.
I have never used a battery saw before. I could not believe how light weight it is how easy it was control it. I cut everything I could throw at straight, angle and bevel cuts.
I like this saw because it is light weight and easy to handle. It's well built, and so convenient, being cordless.
I bought this saw to replace my Dad's old saw from the 70s what a difference.
I have a small shop in my garage and I couldn't be happier. With a 4 amp hour battery*, I can work on a project and never have to worry about losing power. Saw cuts well and nimble too. I love this tool almost as much as the Dewalt jig saw I bought!!
