A great choice for finish carpenters, woodworkers, and contractors looking for a portable tool to make straight, splinter-free, precise cuts, the DEWALT DWS520K Track Saw combines the precision and cut-quality of a table saw, the capacity of a panel saw, and the portability of a circular saw.
Straight, Precise Cuts
The DWS520K TrackSaw travels along an anti-slip aluminum track, enabling you to make clean, straight and precise cuts (track not included). The zero-clearance track features anti-splinter edges indicating the exact cut location, so cut positioning is fast, intuitive, predictable, and accurate. The track's underside has two friction strips to "grab" the material -- keeping the track from moving without the need for additional clamping. The top side of the track has four low-friction glide strips, enabling the saw to smoothly travel along the track. Tracks are available in several lengths. All wear components are user-replaceable.
Power, Convenience, and Versatility
The DWS520K features a DEWALT-built, 1,300 watt motor, providing enough power to cut though hardwoods, and all common woodworking and construction materials. The straight plunge mechanism enables the user to make clean, straight, and splinter-free inside (plunge) cuts. A continuous anti-kick-back feature can be engaged as well, providing additional control by only allowing the saw to move in a forward direction on the track and thus preventing kickback.

The DWS520K also has a dust management system with a universal 1-1/4-inch dust port that collects up to 90 percent of excess dust and debris. A 6-1/2-inch, 48-tooth woodworking blade with a laser cut plate and precision ground teeth provides exceptional cut quality. You'll be able to cut at a 2-1/8-inch depth at a 90-degree bevel and 1-5/8 inches at a 45-degree bevel, enabling you to cut through a variety of common materials. The DWS520K is great for:
- Ripping, crosscutting and mitering sheet goods
- Truing/edge joining
- Inlay cut outs and hardwood flooring
- Cutting cabinet openings, inside plunge cuts
- Door trimming on the hinges
- Cutting multiple-pieces at once (gang cutting)
