The first thing that pops out in a circular saw is how much power it’s got. The Dewalt DCS373B combines 3,700 RPM with a 30T carbide-tipped metal cutting blade. So you can imagine how powerfully built it is for its size and weight.
But that’s not all that makes Dewalt a strong competitor. The shoe design is high-grade steel which assists the blade performance. While also resisting unnecessary setbacks like overloading, inaccurate cuts, and other common mistakes.
If the blade guard or the blade plate was a hindrance to you before, the line of sight in this Dewalt solves everything. So even though you have enough power to make really accurate cuts, the machine runs smoother than ever. No loud noises, no rattling, and definitely no overloading.
The cutting depth is 1-11/16-inches which is the best a 5-1/2-inch blade can do. The blade has an upper guard and shoe bracket that lets you cut with ease and precision. So you have nothing to worry about.
The blade position is on the left when you operate it. Overall, with the 3,700 rotations per minute and 30 carbide-tipped teeth, it boasts of stable and consistent use.
Having said that, the motor speed of 3,700 RPM should be enough to inform that this is an entry-level circular saw. Perfect for light use only. Even though it cuts fast and smooth, it will burn out fast if you push it too hard.
Bright LED lights enhance the cutting area of the circular saw. Even after you release the trigger, it’ll take a full 20 seconds more before it switches off. The handle features a rubberized molded comfort grip to improve usability and control for intricate jobs.
This complements the bright LED lights in that you don’t accidentally injure yourself or do any damage to the main parts of the machine.
Everything about the Dewalt DCS373B screams of easy and quick wood cutting. It is efficient and effective enough for doing multiple cuts on multiple mounted pieces as well. It’s safer and doesn’t get too hot after prolonged use.
The ergonomics are such that it’s perfect for tackling small, light tasks throughout the day. It boasts of easy handling and cuts through a ¼-inch sheet like a hot knife through butter!
The Multi-coated Sight-Line window is a new and unique feature of the Dewalt. What it does is it allows you, the user, to get a direct and clear sight of the cutting line. This increases the safety value of the Dewalt. And leads to less abrasion and friction during cutting.
The shoe design is such that it throws out chip cuttings intuitively. This makes the circular saw easier to clean afterward. The Spindle lock is new and improved as well. Allowing faster and more effective blade changes to avoid injuries or damages.
The blade guard features an additional metal shard protector to get rid of unnecessary dust and chips. This means it won’t shards at your face but sideways. So there’s very little clean-up after.
The lightweight and portable body ensures smooth and safe use. You can also use it effectively as an angle grinder and it doesn’t make a mess in tight spaces at work. It’s truly user-friendly, ergonomic, and portable to use.
