Excerpt: I had a repair to make and a cord and regular saw was going to be more complicated to drag in place than what I had to fix. I had to cut and modify on the spot in a confined space. I borrowed a friends 18v Black & Decker saw. I put everything I needed in a tote and was done in short order.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful, Quick "safety Stop"
Summary: I've had the DC390 18V saw for several years and really like it. I have gotten a lot of use out of it and find it very handy for making quick cuts in 2X and plywood sheathing, but it is now getting tired. I just recently purchased another Dewalt DC390 from Hardware Sales, Inc.
Summary: I use this at home for various reasons. It works very well. I was surprised that it shuts down immediately when releasing the trigger, without the RPM running down of the blade, as does my corded Skil saw. For me, that's a good thing, as it seems safer.
