Dewalt

DeWalt Flexvolt Sliding Compound Miter Saw Rules the Jobsite

Many people say they have no use for a cordless miter saw. The general idea is that you set up a station and you don’t really need to move it around much on the job site. I have a different view point though. I HATE Cords simple and direct. I work on many jobs where there is one or maybe two receptacles for many people to share in many trades. With that scenario we deal with tripping breakers and possibly Tool damage from voltage drops. Then you have the problem of somebody coming along and unplugging your cord so they can run their tool. Heavy duty cordless tools solve all of those problems and more. I applaud DeWalt for developing this heavy duty tool platform that is also  backwards compatible with their current 20 V Max line.

I have had every generation of DeWalt and Makita sliding compound miter saws since the old 708 came out. I have tried every other brand along the way and keep coming back to DeWalt. They just feel right to me. They have been dialed for many years. I have found that people who have never used them before figure them out faster than any other saws.

The capacity is tops or near the top in each successive generation. The accuracy out of the box is usually very good. If there is a problem it is usually very easily adjusted by the careful carpenter.

The DHS790 Flexvolt saw is nearly identical to the dws780 before it. The 780 was really close to the dws718 before it. Each generation has gotten better and better.

The biggest change of course on the new saw is the corded/cordless flexibility you have with it. It can be ordered with the 120 V adapter or without. They can be ordered with or without batteries as well.
It is truly amazing to me that it feels stronger on batteries than when plugged into the wall. It spins up faster and has amazing torque on battery power! 2x 3x even 4×12 hardwoods are no problem. Framing lumber is butter to this beast. Here is a video of it cutting a white oak 4×6??https://instagram.com/p/BR54S1lgTWk/

I ordered my saw with the 2.0 60 V Max batteries. They are also rated at 6.0 A hours at 20 V Max. They are good for 100’s of cuts. Of course runtime will vary with material size and density as well as blade condition. Since that time the 3.0 20 V Max batteries have come out and they are giving a much higher improvement in runtime than 3.0 vs 2.0 would suggest. With heavy use in continuous cutting they are giving more than double the runtime. This is partially because the 3.0 batteries are using the 20700 cells which are 20 mm x 700 mm. The 2.0 batteries are using the 18650 cells which are 18mm x 650mm. There is a substantial difference in the size and the formulation inside the cells. They are much better suited to delivering higher amperage output without wasting energy to heat. It may mean the difference between using the batteries for half a day or a full day on one charge.

One less noticeable difference with the new saw is the XPS Light was shelved and replaced with a dual LED cutline indicator. It is basically the same thing but the XPS was a single LED split by the blade and the cutline LEDs are on either side of the blade for a sharper shadow line and brighter light. One of the changes that I don’t really feel is an improvement is on the lighting control. It comes on when you squeeze the trigger or touch the light button but it will not stay on continuously like on the DWS 780. I have heard many people state that they wish they could stay on and I agree.

 I have always thought the Dewalt fences were among the best in the industry. They are often taller than other brands and offer great flexibility with no hassle. The flexvolt saw will cut a 1″x8″ standing up against the fence. In normal configuration the saw will easily cut larger than a 2 x 12 but the fence is removable to allow for 16 inch wide cross cut with the back fence. So far I know of no other saw besides the DeWalt dws 780 with this feature and capacity.
   The miter scale is stainless steel and is easily adjusted if your angles are off. It is marked in one degree increments up to 50° on the left and 60°to the right. There are additional marks at 22.5, 31.6 and 35.3 which are commonly used angles to make 45° miter or to cut crown molding flat on the table with a complimentary bevel angle. There are detents at 0°, 15° and 22.5°. To release it from the detents there is a thumb button. To lock at other angles you simply push the lock lever down. To release it you lift up. Over the course of many years I have never seen someone struggle with learning these controls.

The bevel lock handle is at the rear of the saw and is not as convenient as some with upfront controls. It is however simple to use and very effective. It is set to bevel 0 to 45 left or right. There are overrides on each side that will allow you to go deeper in the bevel up to 49° by simply pulling on a small metal lever. There are also some heavy duty positive stops for 22.5° and 33.9°. Where these positive stops actually end up are easily adjustable with a bolt on either side.

There is a trenching feature that consists of a small steel flip down lever and an adjustable set screw for setting of the trench or dado. It limits the depth the saw will plunge so you can make a cut without going through the material completely.

The onboard blade changing wrench stores nicely in the base and is also helpful in making adjustments to this off without having extra tools. This is not the simplest blade changing operation I have seen but it is not overly complicated.

The saw came with a standard general purpose blade that also comes on the corded miter saws. It also came with a high-performance flexvolt 60 tooth blade which is optimized for cordless efficiency and quality of cut. I was very impressed with the flex volt blade. I am not usually impressed with factory blades unless the saw comes from Festool or Makita. This one however does a respectable job of making clean cuts with little tear out or run out. It does in fact increase the number of cuts you can make on one charge.

The weakest area of performance for the flexvolt Miter saw is dust collection. Dewalt has many saws with better dust collection capabilities. The 20v max 7 1/4″ is one. The DWS717 10″ is another. All of the DeWalt non slide saws are better for dust collection. The collection system is a long horizontal tube with a flexible boot close to the blade and an airlock connection at the back of the saw. The air lock connection fits Dewalt dust extractor hoses perfectly. I like this connection because it is very secure and locks and unlocks with a simple twist of the locking ring

This is a rather large saw but it is more compact than many 12 inch saws. It is around 56 pounds so one person can carry it but it is probably not a fun task for anybody. It can be lifted from the top handle when stowed correctly or it can be lifted from the base with two hands.
I will  add to this review with updates from time to time but this gives a good overview up to this point. Overall this is my top choice for general carpentry miter saws. Cordless or corded. If you are in the Market for a new top tier miter saw, the Flexvolt should be on your shortlist.

    I ran into an issue with this saw and want to see if anyone else found the same thing. When I flip the depth stop out of the way and lower the blade all the way, it contacts a small plastic bump out in the bottom of the channel. I haven’t made a cut at this depth because I didn’t want to cut something I shouldn’t cut. I’m sure the blade will rip through it on the first cut and it will no longer be an issue but I’m just curious if this is there for a reason.

    • thetoolpig

      It won’t hurt anything. It keeps the blade from hitting any metal parts during transport.

    I love what you said about not having to have your saw in one location on site and just leaving it. I’m just beginning my journey as a carpenter and am learning the value of portability and accessibility and obviously having good tools. I don’t think there’s any question in saying that the flexvolt is the way to go. Why buy a corded saw when you can buy the flexvolt with the adapter for more extensive use, but still have capability to go cordless when more convienent and necessary. Thanks for a great review, and I look forward to more!

  300. We have a mutual hate for cords. I’ll add that at our shop (a set/scenery shop) we are constantly rolling cases and stages thru during builds and even with them taped down it can be a pain to navigate.

    I’m not sure that battery powered saws are the answer at the shop – but would certainly come in handy onsite where access to power is limited! Thanks for the extensive review! Im hoping to get one this year!

    @singletary_framing

  318. Chandler Bawcun

    I have always been skeptical of battery powered large tools.. no matter the chemical composition batteries always deteriorate.. I just have trouble trusting high output batteries to perform for many years to come.. obviously drills and nail guns benefit greatly.. but a miter saw!! I guess I’m just biased because I’ve had a really poor experience with Milwaukee batteries and chargers.. I own the dewalt cordless framing nailer and it’s a beast, so maybe I should open up and put my faith into a new brand. If you say it stands up to its claim prove me wrong!! Ig: chandler_concepts

  321. Christian Leman

    Thanks for the review! I have been looking for a new miter saw and leaning towards dewalt. It’s good to know the cordless option has plenty of power but also comes with a corded adapter. How does this compare to the Festool Apex as far as accuracy goes?

    IG: @chenrylem

    • It’s very hard to beat the Festool. I suppose if I am really getting down to the nitty-gritty I will prefer it. It is also much cleaner with the dust extractor which in some cases means it is the only saw for me to use. For general cutting and trimming out the Dewalt is easier and has a much larger capacity.

  322. Ryan Ahlenius

    A good, thorough review. Thanks for being a voice to quality, and practicality!

  325. Another awesome review!

    The thought of being able to set this saw up and get to work right out of the back of the van is exciting!

    As a remodeler I do my best to keep the mess and noise in the least inconvenient location for my clients. That often means running long lengths of extension cords from poorly located exterior outlets (or worse, running cords under storm doors). This saw solves that issue! No damage to my equipment! No time wasted prancing around muddy mulch beds to get to outlets ??.

    Thanks for this in depth review of this miter saw. I have been looking at this saw since it was first announced. I am a huge dewalt fan and have entered into the flexvolt line with only the circular saw and am very impressed with it over the older 20v max circular saw. This saw would make a great asset to my arsenal. @tonylandin001 on Instagram longtime follower on multiple multimedias #teamtoolpig

  364. This thing sounds sick! I agree with the plan and simple hating cords. Part of it for me is that I don’t have a shop, so everything runs off me unplugging/plugging in on 1 extension cord in the back yard. Sounds like a great tool, dude! Followed you! & The ig handle is @thetimberedwolf

    Good article. I am looking at getting a miter saw and was going to research battery vs corded. My biggest issue with battery is when the battery retaining power after year of use.
    @andy_woodwork

  374. Korby Lunt

    To be completely honest, I have only really used DeWalt for my work. I am a finish carpenter of only a little more than a year, but I have loved them. Even some of the older models have been great! Also, it’s so frustrating showing up to a job that only has the one temporary power outlet and having to find it and then running cords a half mile around the house just so you can set up where you want. This thing would be a game changer for me!

  375. Bob Hunt rjh71

    I’m surprised you didn’t zero in on the weight. That’s a huge turnoff for a one man band who’s on difffernt jobs often. I’d love to try it first hand and see. It seems most
    Practicsl for decks which I try to do a lot of and wish I could do more of. My day to day I’m 95% cordless, and this would certainly help with that.

    IG rmasker

    • I mentioned it but it’s not a deal breaker for me. There are several saws with higher weights. The weight champ is the Makita 7 1/2″??

    • I did mention the weight. It’s not a deal breaker. The Bosch and Milwaukee 12″ saws are a LOT more cumbersome. This has the best capacity of any Saw with mid pack weight. I call that a win??

    Great write up. At first when these came out I didn’t really think it was that necessary of a tool category. When would you need a full size miter saw and not have power. Since then we’ve had a couple of jobs that completely changed my mind on it. Flood damaged homes here in Florida where the electric was turned off and one huge custom home we were installing cabinets in but it still wasn’t hooked up to power. Only way to power our saws was run 200′ + of power cords. Would love to try this saw out. Starting to see the situations where this would be very useful!
    Plus your Instagram giveaway is awesome and very generous to the Insta construction community.
    Insta name @keepercon

    • I appreciate the comment! Maybe one of these days when I post about the saw again, not connected to a giveaway you could re-state that experience that you’ve had.

    • It would do me a great favor if you would repeat that on future posts of the Dewalt flexvolt miter saw or tablesaw. Especially when people are saying we don’t need a cordless miter saw.

    @dreweaston85

    Congrats on reaching 75k!

    I would really appreciate winning this bad boy. I Have a massive Dewalt collection already. And would love this saw for myself. But i would re-gift this to my boy, who taught me half of what i know. Because… about A month ago I knocked his dewalt 12″ off a table that was as old as Connor McDavid! 1997
    Needless to say it is a little worse for wear! But a little/lot of electrical tape to put the shattered handle back together, and it still works!

    What a great saw really wish I had one

  470. I believe that the less traditional cordless tools are going to be used more widely by everyone fairly soon. Who wouldn’t want the option to have a tool in the shop one day then on a jobsite that afternoon? With the advancements being made by the tool companies it is only a matter of time.

    Ever since batteries became lighter and battery life lasted longer between charges I’ve been sold. The mere fact one battery can power so many different tools is so benificial. Hazard with cords not to mention the work it takes to wrap up a 100 foot cord is the reason why I will never go back to corded tools. Dewalt and carhartt for life.

    This would be a great addition to the jobsite. Based on your review I might have to go buy one if I don’t win.

    Ever since cordless batteries got lighter as lasted longer between charges I was sold. The mere fact that one battery can work for an assortment of tools makes life so less complicated not to mention your arms don’t die out wrapping up hundred foot cords. Great saw great battery dewalt and carhartt for life!!!
