Dewalt's DCS380L1 20V MAX Lithium Ion Reciprocating Saw Kit

  • Speed, Power, and Perfectly Aggressive Cutting

    dewalt-DCS380B-cordless-reciprocating-saw-bare-toolDewalt recently released a new line of sleek and remastered 20V MAX cordless power tools. This platform is designed to combine compact convenience with industrial, heavy-duty power and, truthfully, it does just that. These 20V MAX power tools are surprisingly compact while also packing considerable power. Among the new tools released with this platform is Dewalt’s DCS380, a lithium ion reciprocating saw available in a kit (DCS380L1) and as a bare tool (DCS380B).

    To begin, the tool is surprisingly comfortable to operate. The saw weighs just 7.35-lbs allowing operators to use and maneuver the tool more easily and encouraging results that are, overall, more clean and precise. The lightweight of the saw, of course, is also especially helpful during the extended, awkward, or overhead applications so often encountered with a reciprocating saw. Because the tool also features a rubber over-molded comfort grip, users enjoy both comfortable operation and optimal control over each cut and over the tool itself.

    So, the saw is compact and comfortable, but it can also kick the sass straight out of nearly anything you’d need to cut. Its 1-1/8” stroke length delivers ultra-fast cutting speeds and with a variable speed trigger boasting 0 – 3,000 SPM (strokes per minute), the tool delivers greater versatility, enhanced blade control, smoother, results, and a more aggressive cutting speed.

    The saw additionally features a 4-position blade clamp which significantly enhances your positional versatility while also allowing you to perform flush-cuts. For comprehensive convenience, this system also allows users to perform fast and simple tool-free blade changes. The saw’s pivoting adjustable shoe additionally extends the life of each blade used while also allowing operators to control and determine each cut depth.

    Furthermore, to ensure all this comfort and high-performance is better protected, the tool’s interior components are just as smart as the tool’s sleek exterior. In fact, a double oil-sealed shaft is resistant to outside contamination and enhances the overall durability of the tool. Oh! And speaking of durability, the DCS380 runs on a 3.0-Ah 20V MAX lithium ion battery, one of the most efficient, high-performance batteries in the industry. This battery is compact and lightweight, it is efficient and lasting, and, due to an overall style modification, the battery contributes to the overall well balance and ergonomics of the saw.

    Altogether this reciprocating saw is a real doozie of a power tool. Whether you opt for the kit or the bare tool, the saw combines the best of today’s comfort and performance technologies, and includes a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service contract and a 90-day money back guarantee. The DCS380L1 includes a battery, fast charger and kit box. The bare tool, of course, includes just the saw and is selling right now for an unbeatable $99. Supplies won’t last long, so don’t miss your opportunity to save big on a new, smooth and super-powerful reciprocating saw.
