Dewalt DCS367B Cordless Reciprocating Saw Review
Here are some of the best features the Dewalt DCS367B has:
1. Anti Slip Comfort Grabs and Grips
Cordless reciprocating saw machines are powerful saw machines that are used to cut through a ton of tough materials. To perform this function they need to generate a lot of power. As a result, most reciprocal machines produce a lot of vibrations.
When working with the machine, the vibrations can prove counterproductive as it makes the hands of the holder shake and hence losing grip of the machine. Some users make the wrong cut when this happens or even mistakenly cut themselves.
The DeWalt anti-slip comfort grabs and grips at the handle of the machine take care of this situation excellently. It minimizes the vibrations felt when using the machine thus strengthening the grip of the holder on the machine.
The anti-slip comfort grabs and grips on this machine ensures that one makes only right and precise cuts.
2. Bright Led Light for Illumination
A major advantage of a reciprocal saw machine is that it can fit in and make cuts in very tight spaces. Now, while this is a nice thing, it does come with some slight hiccups.
Although the machine can get in between tight spaces to make the cut, it becomes difficult to get visibility in those tight spaces.
Once again, DeWalt is making effort to improve customer experience by incorporating bright LED lights in front of the machine. This helps to brighten and illuminate the work area so you can see exactly what you are driving your saw through.
This is some next-level customer-focused design thinking to be very honest.
3. Variable Speed Trigger
The fact that this reciprocating saw machine can be used to cut through various materials by merely making use of a blade suitable for each material is very cool.
What’s even cooler is the variable speed trigger which allows you to adjust the speed of the machine accordingly with the requirements of the material you are cutting. I mean, it feels like you can have multiple machines all in one DCS367B reciprocating machine.
The range of the SPM rate of this machine is the icing on the cake. It has about 0-2900 SPM allowing you to dictate the speed of the saw culminating in a more precise cut.
4. Lightweight Structure and Ergonomic Design
For more perspective on what we mean here, the machine weighs just about 5.4lbs and is about 14 inches long. “Compact” is the word most users and experts describe this structure with.
This lightweight structure makes it very easy to carry around. On top of that, it has a really nice feeling when you do carry it; the ergonomic design makes it super comfortable. The advantage of this is that it makes the cutting process enjoyable.
5. Keyless Four Position Blade Clamp
The implication of the Keyless four-position blade clamp is that in a couple of seconds you can switch from a blade suitable for cutting metal to one suitable for cutting wood without having to make use of a hex or Allen key.
As an added advantage, the clamp makes it possible to fix the blade in either direction so as to make the cut in the most convenient manner rather than having to bend the machine itself. The customer experience at its finest!
Yet another feature to make operating this machine a very easy process. This feature demonstrates the emphasis of this product on customer experience.
When we consulted various customer reviews, it was evident that this feature has allowed users more time to get more work done and focus on more important tasks, and get more done in less time. The word “versatility” describes what this brings to the table.
6. Pivoting Shoe
The pivoting shoe together with the anti-slip grips and grabs we discussed earlier are two major features that help to deal with the vibration that comes with the work of the machine.
While the anti-slip grips and grabs help you get a good hold of it, the Pivoting show allows you press the machines against platforms while making a cut. This is especially important when cutting hard materials like railings or trees.
Also, it is majorly the feature that helps the machine get in tight spaces to make proper cuts especially when the angles are right.
Once you hinge the pivoting shoe at the perfect angle and press on it hard enough, you can go on to make very precise cuts without having to worry about the saw falling off.
By now, you should have a clear picture of how the major features of the DCS67B help make your day at the workshop a smooth one. They help you get your work done easier and faster just as a true machine should.
Nonetheless, some would argue that there a ton of other reciprocal saws in the market with the same exact features. This begs the question; Why then should you choose DEWALT DCS367B?
To answer this question, we take a look at some more feature which stand this machine out amongst other reciprocal saws.
What Makes the Dewalt DCS367B Special?
1. Brushless Motor That Guarantees Durability
Unlike most other reciprocal saw machines that make use of the traditional motor, the DCS367B reciprocating Saw by DeWalt makes use of a brushless motor.
Well, for starters, a brushless motor doesn’t make use of brushes and makes use of direct current. They typically have an efficiency of 85-90% compared to an efficiency of 70-75% which traditional brushed motors have.
The brushes in the traditional brushed motors wear off at the end of the day this resulting in the shorter lifespan associated with them
Brushless motors on the other hand are quieter and lighter and ultimately have longer lifespans. This explains why the brushless motor in the DCS367B guarantees durability compared to other reciprocating machines.
2. Ease of Use:
We have discussed the major features which contribute to this earlier. The fact is that this machine defies the norm expected of a demolition reciprocating saw machine. It is very easy to use this serving the function of a true machine.
The pivoting show, anti-slip grip, lightweight structure, and keyless four-position blade clamp all contribute to this ease of use.
Most other reciprocating machines in the market have made it a norm to require the input of a lot of energy and power into making use of them. DeWalt on the other hand is changing that narrative. The numerous feature makes it easy for just anyone to cut down logs of woods, metals, pipes, railings, etc without even breaking a sweat.
This is why users love it. If you want something a little more stress-free, you should give it a try.
Machines are meant to make work easier and faster. Having taken an in-depth look at the various features of the DEWALT DCS367B reciprocating saw in this review, I believe it has become more evident, that the machine does just that.
Contractors working on large demolition projects as well as gardeners needing something compact to cut down tree branches or any other handy persons who need a machine to carry out neat cuttings should strongly consider the DEWALT DCS367B cordless reciprocating saw machine.
