Dewalt came out with their 20V MAX Brushless Compact Reciprocating Saw in December. So it’s been out for several months now. But I think it’s still a relatively new tool that’s worthy of a blog post.
You might know that this is Dewlt’s second 20V MAX Compact Reciprocating Saw on the market. But their first, the DCS387, is not brushless.
Is it worth the $10 difference? (It’s on sale now…online only!… There’s normally a $30 difference!)
We think so, and not just because we’re in the business of selling tools.
I’ve written about the difference between brushed and brushless tools in the past. It comes down to a few key points: Brushless tools deliver more power, require less maintenance, live longer, weigh less and are more compact.
The brushless motor is able to provide up to 2.5x’s more run-time to get the job done.
It’s described as being compact…and it is. However it’s actually 0.5″ longer than the DCS387.
Plus, the new Dewalt 20V MAX DCS367 Brushless Compact Reciprocating Saw will be built in the USA.
Compared to the DCS387, the specs and features of the DCS367 appear to be similar, with a subtle difference in the design of the handle.
Which would you prefer?
