We’ve chosen the Dewalt DCS350 20V MAX Cordless Threaded Rod Cutter to be our tool of the month!
This is one of the five new trade-focused tools Dewalt announced they would be adding to their 20V MAX cordless power tool lineup earlier this year. (The others are the DCE150 Cable Cutter, DCE300 U-Type Died Crimper, DCE350 Dieless Crimper and the DCE200 Press Tool.)
But the DCS350 is a big deal. We’ll break it down to three reasons (in no particular order):
- It’s able to cut 1/4″, 3/8″ and 1/2″ mild steel, and 1/4″ and 3/8″ stainless steel (not to mention these cuts will be clean and bur-free!).
- The tool features a rotating cutter die that allows the user to cut multiple sizes of rod with the same tool.
- It works without creating chips or sparks, which could make this a safer alternative to other cutting tools.
Another plus is that it has a bright LED work light to illuminate the cutting area.
