The DWE575 Dewalt circular saw is one of the lightest in its class at 8.8 pounds. With its 15-amp motor, powerful enough for even the toughest applications, and its anti-snag ball bearing lower guard providing smooth guard operation and long life in harsh environments, this lightweight saw is ideal for slicing through lumber and hardwood. This saw features an electric brake that stops the blade after trigger is released. A tough cord provides longer durability against cord pull outs while an integrated dust blower function cleans the line of sight during cutting. The DWE575 DeWalt circular saw is also equipped with a durable high-grade aluminium smooth base for accurate cuts. It comes with a three-year limited warranty.
