Summary: I didnot need to spend about$200 for the whole kit, case, charger, batteries, blade. This was the way to go for me (have a charger and bought a battery for about $28 from another vendor here on Amazon). It's perfect, brand new and delivered in a few days. Used the saw on a quicky little rip+crosscut job. plenty of power and battery life and it saved me from draging out the corded saw and an extention and bringing it to where the work was. I'm happy.
Summary: My first word when I ripped my first board with this Trim saw was "Wow!" The ease of use, it's ability to slice through a piece of lumber, or a long cut through plywood, without any effort was amazing. The total balanced feel of this trim saw is outstanding, and even nicer to have the blade on the left which permits a better viewing angle of the wood being cut. This trim saw is also cordless, and it uses the same 18v battery pack that my other DeWalt power tools use.
Summary: This saw is a God send, it is very light and for its size has alot of power. Get's in alot of tight spots if needed. I have two batteries so there is no problem there. Just put in two floors and the saw handled everything very well.
