DEWALT DWE575SB Review
The DEWALT DWE575SB Circular Saw is not only light weight and low maintenance; it is one of the safest circular saws on the market. This tool is the perfect tool for beginners looking to do some home renovation projects without having to pay an arm or leg. Don’t mistake its lighter weight for lesser quality as this is a very durable saw with an affordable price tag. Safety is a big feature with this mini saw and accuracy is easy with its larger viewing window in the shoe assembly. This allows you to see more of the blade and where it is cutting without losing any much needed fingers.

It boasts a 57 degree bevel capacity with 22.5 and 45 degree detents for use in a variety of applications. A 2 9/16 inch depth of cut which is one of best cutting depths in its class and a built in dust blower to keep your path clear while cutting. The blade rotates at a massive 5,100 RPM and has a power out- put of 1,950 Max Watts Out.
A patented tough cord protection system provides triple durability against cord pull-out while on boards wrench storage allows for quick and easy blade changes. Comes with a handy carry case make it easy to transport. The electric brake feature allows the user to initiate faster repetitive cuts thanks to its ability to stop the blade after two to three seconds after the trigger is released.
This also provides the user with extra safety. Operating heavy power tools for a long period over an extended time can lead to fatigue and joint issues, not to mention bursitis which is extremely painful. Lighter and more ergonomically shaped tools mean that you can put in more hours with less strain and the anti vibration feature is a lot softer on the joints.
The shoe is made from high grade aluminum which provides a strong and durable design. This kit comes with a 7-1/4 inch circular saw blade and blade wrench for swopping or changing out blades.
