This 2-tool combination saw kit is an outstanding idea. It comes with a full-size cordless (not brushless) reciprocating saw and a 6 1/2” cordless (not brushless) circular saw, as well as a standard 20v charger and (2) 3aH batteries. This is not the XR set, so this is a standard-duty saw set. The XR is a longer-lived battery system meant for more of a professional tradesman, whereas this standard 2-tool combo kit is meant for less rugged use.
The Circular Saw
The circular saw is a bit smaller than my other models of [Dewalt circular saws], and for some reason is left-handed (or at least, left-bladed). The blade is set up on the left side of the handle, where both of my other Dewalt circular saws are setup blade on the right. That does not effect the functionality of the tool one bit, it’s more convenient this way in my opinion. For a right-handed person this is actually more to your benefit as you’re normally standing on the left side of the tool where you can easily see what you’re cutting. With the other models I have, the blade is on the right side, so you have to look through the tool to make sure that your mark is lined up with the [saw blade]. I don’t use the little notched-lines on the front frame of the saw when I’m cutting. I feel more confident getting consistent cuts by looking at the actual blade and the line I drew on the material and, watch the blade the entire time I cut.
This saw, like all of the others I’ve come across from Dewalt, has a blade key that slides into the tool. This is a great feature because it means you can quickly remove your blades whenever you need to without having to go get a socket set. The saw is powerful enough to cut wood consistently and reliably. I did notice that there is a noticeable power difference between this saw and my 2 FlexVolt 60-v XR saws, but this is to be expected with the higher voltage brushless rigs.
