The Dewalt DWE575SB 7-1/4-inch lightweight circular saw with electric brake is designed to be one of the lightest and well balanced saw in its class at only 8.8 pounds, with an electric brake that stops the blade after the trigger is released. A ball bearing lower guard provides a durable design — even against dust contamination for smooth retraction — along with the high grade stamped aluminum shoe that provides the user with a durable and smooth base for accurate cutting. Advanced lower guard geometry for bevel cuts with integrated dust blower allows the user to clear the sightline while cutting. A patented tough cord protection system provides 3x durability against cord pull-out. On-board blade wrench storage allows for easy storage and convenience for blade changes. It also includes a handy carrying case for easy portability.
Small but Powerful
Weighing only 8.8 pounds and measuring 7.2 inches in width, the DWE575SB is one of the lightest circular saws in its class. Despite its small size, the unit delivers plenty of power to perform some of the most demanding applications with 1,950 Max Watts Out (MWO) and 5,100 revolutions per minute (RPM). The saw is ideal for framers, concrete formers, general contractors, and remodelers who are tasked with completing applications ranging from framing walls to cutting plywood, siding, exterior finishing, and more. Also, thanks to an integrated dust blower that cleans the user’s line of sight before cutting and high quality gears, the saw provides smooth cutting, high quality performance. The saw also features a 57-degree bevel capacity, with 22.5- and 45-degree detents, and a 2 9/16-inch depth of cut capacity, which is best in class and allows for a variety of applications.
Tough and Durable
To provide durability, DEWALT incorporated several features into the design of the new circular saw. For instance, a ToughCord cord system provides three times more resistance to cord pullouts when compared to circular saws without a ToughCord system. To aid in comfort and balance, the new circular saw features ergonomic handles and trigger actuation. The DWE575SB also features an electric break that allows for the saw blade to stop after two to three seconds from the time the trigger is released, providing additional safety. This feature allows users to start repetitive cuts faster.

Top customer reviews
THE BAG - It is much nicer bag than most would expect. Made of durable materials for the handles and such, it has a canvas wrapped hard metal rim around the entire top that hinges open and closed (like an old doctor medicine bag). It has long rubber feet on the bottom to limit wear and tear. Also has 3 pockets on the outside. Although it has a bottom piece, it feels like thin cardboard. So I'm going to insert a piece of 1/4" x 14.5" x 8.5" soft maple inside the bottom and fasten this wood to the external rubber feet. This will keep the saw and canvas from ever making contact with hard ground and/or concrete. Although I like the plastic cases for tools, they can be a bit frustrating for me at times.
BLADE CRADLE - The kit comes with a plastic blade cradle that will hold 4-5 blades. It includes a spring clip retainer to hold the blades securely in the cradle. This protect them from damaging the saw or bag when storing blades in the bag.
90° FINE TUNING - There is an adjustable allen set screw that allows you to set the blade at exactly at 90° using a square. Although most c-saws have this feature, Dewalt doesn't mention it anywhere except the manual. This is the "stop" that returns the saw to exactly 90° after using the normal lever controlled bevel adjustment. This "fine tuning" should be done when you first get the saw and whenever you install a new blade. One reviewer commented his saw wasn't square, provided an image, and returned the saw after giving it a 1 Star - obviously "Patrick" didn't glance through the instruction manual.
The jury is still out on this saw, since I've only used it once. I has more than enough power, and is more quiet than the saw it's replacing, but mine has two problems: the foot plate is not properly aligned - I'm waiting to hear back from Dewalt to learn if I can adjust it, and the base is unstable because there's play at the rear hinge that allows the saw to wander off-track.
If these are inherent flaws, it's too bad, because the saw would be great if the plate were more stable and properly aligned. If I can't fix those on my own, I'll have to send it back.
Others have mentioned that the blade is slow to stop, comparing it to stationary saws. It stops quickly but it doesn't stop immediately and that's fine. The torque caused by an instant stop would be hard on the wrist after a long day.
Lightweight, solid built and accurate right out of the box. Checked with square and measuring tools the blade was perfectly perpendicular to the base and the blade end to end was dead on parallel to the plate. Plenty of power, not unlike other 15a saws, but this one does it with finesse.
