DeWalt redesigned its 7-1/4” circular saw, model DWE575, which will be offered with an electric brake and kit bag.
“As technology improves, contractors are constantly looking for tools that offer more power in a smaller package,” product manager Ivonne Meza said in a statement. “When it comes to circular saws in particular, our field research proves that professionals are also looking for a saw that delivers balance, comfort and smoothness of cut. Throughout the development of our new saws, we kept these requirements in mind to design the products that contractors have requested.”
The saw weighs 8.8 lbs. making it one of the lightest circular saws in its class, according to DeWalt.
It features a 57-degree bevel capacity, 2-9/16” depth of cut, ToughCord cord system, ball bearing lower guard, and aluminum shoe.
The saw will be available in the second half of 2012. It will retail for $129; or $139 in kit form.
