Dewalt Tools are industry leaders manufacturing top-notch industrial power tools such as cordless and woodworking power tools and many other high-quality tools and accessories. One of the tools they deliver is the 7-1/4 inch 36V Cordless Li-Ion Circular Saw Kits. The DC300K engineered with an innovative 36-volt battery offers professional users increased run time, levels of power, and battery life while at the same time maintaining the same weight to corded & other varieties of the 18-volt circular saws. The saw provides expert contractors with a corded tool’s performance and power combined with the flexibility of a cordless saw. Let’s get into the DEWALT DC300K review.
DEWALT DC300K Features
The circular saw comes with 0-50 degree bevel capacity and features lever-action detents at 45 and 22.5 degrees. This allows the user to make aggressive bevel cuts, and it also makes it possible to locate common angles pretty fast.
It features a 7-1/4 inch carbide-tipped blade that is used effectively at 45 and 90 degrees for increased cutting capacity. The depth of cut capacities stands at 1-5/8 at 45 degrees and 2-7/16 at 90 degrees which means that it can be used to slice through 2 by lumber in one pass. Regardless of whether you are cutting ceiling joists, reframing a wall, ripping plywood roof sheathing, or trimming floorboards, you can use the saw all day. It also has an all-metal keyless blade change system making changing of blades very easy and fast as you will not need any allen key or wrench to get it off.

The Dewalt circular saw has been designed specifically to meet the demands of expert contractors. The full-size 7-1/4 inch saw is powered by an ultra high output 36-volt lithium-ion battery that is rechargeable and permits you to use it for long periods even after the cordless saws have ceased. It does not get slower or fade. This 36-volt cordless platform has been developed to offer expert contractors the required performance to finish high-powered applications that could not be completed with corded tools.
Compared to conventional lithium technology, the revolutionary battery provides durability, long run time, and higher power levels. The technology delivers maximum life of more than 2000 recharges without any annoying battery memory. To increase cut speed, the motor delivers 4,000 revolution power per minute. The system offers great power at a comfortable weight. The battery can be recharged regardless of the charge status without damaging the cells as they do not have any memory effect.
The circular saw also comes with an electric brake powerful enough to handle even the toughest tasks. When the blade stops its rotation before it has been lifted off a piece of work, it saves time and is also considered an important safety feature. It contains a low weight, high strength magnesium shoe and an upper guard that offers durability and increased cutting capacity for long-term cutting accuracy. The saw only weighs 9.9 pounds. It also has an anti-slip feature that offers greater control and comfort and a safety button located on the handle.
