Seriously tempted but asking myself I have the 18v version. Do I really need this?

I'd say not. This is a great saw, especially at this price but not massively better than the dcs570.
54V?

Have you used both?

Yes. This has a little more power and a better brake, but is also a bit heavier.
andyb8331/03/2020 13:41

Yes, 54v flexvolt.


What’s the battery like in 54v same AH? Or much much higher ratings?

That’s quite a lot of Volts for a cordless tool.

The 54v batteries are great. They come in 6.0, 9.0 or 12ah. They'll also work in the 18v xr range to give a bit more ooommpphh!
Can anyone help? I purchased a DEWALT DCS391N 18V XR 165MM CIRCULAR SAW from Screwfix the other day to cut some oak sleepers and it is barely able to cut them to a depth of 1cm. Battery is fully charged and wood is not wet etc but it gets slower and slower until it stops rotating as I move across the top of the sleeper. Is it a faulty unit or are the lower power units not up to the task? May be interested in this if so. Thanks

The 391 probably isn't ideal for sleepers, more suited to ripping sheet material. This would be much better suited, but bear in mind if you doubt already have flexvolt batteries, they're quite expensive.

Sounds epic. Wonder if these compare to Hilti range of tools. :).

A blade with more teeth would probably be better.

You need blades with less teeth for that type of work.

Have you set the circular saw depth correctly? It is not a chop saw. A circular caw will cut into that wood and make the depth of cut as soon as it touches the wood. Also have you installed the blade in the right direction? And what size battery is on that saw? 4ah or 5ah is recommended for sleeper type of deep sections.

Blade is in the right direction and I've tried multiple depths from the max to 1cm.

For cross cutting and on battery power?

Your circular saw came brand new not ex display or returns? From screwfix.
What batterie are you using with it 12v or 18v or 54v.
How many teeth are on your blade, it’s written on it eg 24T and is it dewalt black and yellow blade.

16-24 Teeth: Demo/Framing
32-50 Teeth: All-Purpose Cutting
60-80 Teeth: Finish Grade
100-140 Teeth: Fine-Finish & Cabinetry

Are you using it without the plastic shoe protector plate.

I upgraded my old dewalt kit 16 yrs old and seen better days, the 576 ( slide rail) is a beast even my lass noticed the power difference
I've owned this saw for just over a year and it's as powerful as my corded bosch, in that time I haven't bothered to use the bosch at all. I've done loads of cut roofs in that time as well as other site carpentry work. This saw is so much more powerful than any 18v saw I've used
Just had a look and the price is £179 to get the price quoted you need to get approved for a mastercard but it looks like you still pay the full amount and get a £20 Amazon gift card, if I'm reading in correctly then the price needs amending to £179

The actual price was £159 earlier. Seems to have gone up, will expire.

Hi pirattitude, yes brand new, 18v, 24 teeth, black and yellow blade. When you say plastic shoe plate, it has the metal guide plate, straight out of the box. Any other ideas or do I just have a dud? Thanks40243456-4UjXb.jpg
Caesar you need to let the blade do the work. Don't force it.

I normally use my corded DeWalt for jobs like this.
