Design and Power

The magnesium shoe offers both durability and light weight.  The whole design gives comfort especially if you hold the rubber over molded grip.  It is easy to hold and control.  The stock blade measures 6-12″ carbide tipped blade that is capable of cutting through 2x material at both 90 and 45 degrees.  The bevel angles between 0 and 50 degrees allow you for plenty of flexibility for angle cutting.  This means you can use such device to many cutting situations.  It is powered by 20V Max 4.0 amp hour battery that allows you to use the device for a longer period of time.

We actually tested the DEWALT DCS391.  What we did was, we put the device through a series of cross cuts into 2 x 12 pressure treated wood.  Using the device, I was able to test the circular saw blades by making 6 cross cuts without any interruption.  The machine didn’t even give signs of bogging down.  It was actually tested too by my friend to see how comfortable this thing to hold to.  Looking at the wood we have cut, we saw how stable, clean, and smooth the cuts were.  Truly, we are impressed!

We then shifted our test to the device’s maximum speed.  At an average of 25 seconds using the stock blade, we were surprised to have 5 cross cuts accurately.  I thought I’m gonna lose and take back my first impression of the device.  It’s good to say that I’m still impressed with the speed of DEWALT DCS391.

We have also tried to slow down the speed, still, it made us in awe when we had cut the woods clean and accurate.  The cutting process was so smooth.  Because it is lightweight, it is easy to control and maneuver.
