Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The DW870 is a full-featured 14-inch metal chop saw, but not at a full-featured price. Powered by a 15 amp AC/DC motor that turns at 3,800 rpm, you can cut through pipe up to 4 inches in diameter or 2-1/2-inch solid bar. The quick-locking vise speeds up your multiple cuts, as you don't have to waste time turning the crank handle numerous times. Users prefer the D-handle design, which provides ease of use and comfort whether you're using the saw on the ground or a bench. The fence pivots for making angle cuts and it has the capacity to cut a full bundle of drywall studs.

Features

  • Ergonomically designed D-handle provides a more comfortable hand position, reducing fatigue and increasing productivity
  • 15 amp, 3.2-horsepower motor provides overload capacity, increasing performance and durability
  • Quick-lock vise allows for fast clamping on variable-size materials to increase productivity
  • 45-degree pivoting fence allows for fast and accurate angle cuts
  • Spindle lock allows users to make wheel changes fast and easy, saving time and money
  • Steel base allows users to weld jigs or stops directly onto the base
  • Top handle allows users to easily carry the saw
  • Chain lockdown allows the user to lock the head of the saw in the carrying position

I recently purchased this chop saw and found that it performed as well as I expected. The motor seemed to handle the 2 inch conduit that I was cutting without a hesitation. The model DW871 had a nicer miter setup, head locking system and a clamping handle but for the purpose that I bought the saw and the amount of use it will get, this one for the money should perform everything that I need.

It's not a bad chopsaw, but I hate the way the miter lock works. Even when you have it set, if you try and tighten the work a little too much, the angle will move on it's own. Hard to describe, but just don't depend on the miter angle that much.
Besides that, it has great power. Cutting 1/4" square tube will take some time, but that's a given.

I have bought lot's of dewalt tools in the past this chop saw has seen sevear duty in my line of work, it usually performs well but it is very hard on the brushes. It usually FRIES one brush but doesn't hurt the other one hard'ly at all.For the most part it is a pretty good chop saw, that preforms pretty well.

I like this saw alot, and expect good quality from the Dewalt name. My only problem is that it doesnt cut bricks well. I bought separately a masonry blade, and it works ok til about 1/2 way through the 3" brick. Hoping that i dont have to buy an expensive diamond wheel blade.

The saw appears to be a good one, however, upon opening the original box, found the end of the securing screw/plate for the item to be sawed broken into several pieces.
