Top Customer Reviews
What I like about it:
3. Good power despite being cordless
5. Not too heavy
6. The "chuck" (collet?)
What needs to be improved:
1. The batteries!
The best feature by far is the 4-position quick-release chuck/collet. It allows you to select the usual "up" and "down" blade orientations, of course, but also "left" and "right" ones. The latter two positions really come into their own when flush cutting up against another surface because they place the blade so close to the edge of the shoe/body of the saw. As far as I know, only the Type 2 version of the DC385 has this, so check carefully if buying a reconditioned or auction item.
There are a couple of features I would like to have: orbital cutting and variable stroke length. Orbital cutting allows a recip saw to zip through wood by scooping out the chips as they are cut. Being able to adjust, or at least choose between several settings of stroke length would make cutting into existing walls without binding the blade or poking through the other side much less likely.
The true Achilles' heel of the DeWalt cordless tool line-up is their continued use of Ni-Cd batteries.Read more ›
Where do i start first? This saw has the quick change head AND you can position your blade to cut Down or UP or Left or Right !!!!
Not many saws can do this... plus its Quick Change... Flip the lever, pull your blade.... very simple - no screws to mess with or anything.
I cut on/off for about two-three hours on a single lithium charge cutting anything from 2x4's to 2x6's and plywood when i demo... Don't use the dewalt blades.... Milwaukee Torch blades are the BEST you can buy... trust me... dewalt makes an awesome saw... but their blades have much to be desired.
This saw is so powerful... i've cut steel pipes, sheet metal steel boxes / ovens and its pulled through like nothing. Thrown on a mason blade and cut blocks and bricks and stucco all day long.....
Now onto the current saw. This saw has one important difference with my old one. The new one doesn't have extra material that flairs out and around to support the entire top of the battery. Some of the customer imaged show a used saw that has the feature I am speaking of.Read more ›
now for the scoop:
Pros: a bit more compact than the older units
really nice adjustable shoe
two position chuck
reliable and well priced for a bare tool pro unit
cons: this unit will eat thru batteries like you ain't seen...so have plenty of extras...3 is a bare minimun for demo days ...if your a weekend warrior then 2 is fine.
(I must admit that I hesitate to even list this as a con....this is a bare tool and those buying it should aready be familiar with the dewalt line and have a couple batteries....the xrp's are no better or worse for charge or use time than the new nano's...they are however heavier and do not keep a storage charge as well as the lithiums do....that said the amp hour rating is what determines a batteries run time. period....so if you have batteries enjoy... if not then look for combo kit deals. only the every day guys should be concerned with nano-lithiums as the its more of an issue when they are left in the truck without use then in the garage or workshop on a charger. hence this is a 5 star review for a great tool no matter what battery you use.)

Use it ALL the time. Really handy
Note - this doesn't come with the batteries. You have to buy them separately, and they cost about as much as the saw
