The DeWalt DCS367B Reciprocating Saw is a compact and lightweight model and is another tool within the 20V max lithium-ion system which DeWalt is expanding.
This reciprocating saw has received many glowing reviews from customers and critics alike.
I’ll be discussing in this review as to why you should be looking at this reciprocating saw as part of your set, and the features that come with it.
If you don’t have too much time to read the review, I’ve outlined some key points of the DeWalt DCS367B for you to quickly read over:
- Light and compact design, a weight of 5.4lbs and length of 14”
- Part of DeWalt’s 20V Max Lithium-Ion battery range, allowing you to interchange between batteries and tools
- Keyless 4 position blade clamp for quick and easy switches
- Variable speed trigger with a 2,900SPM rate
- Brushless motor for longevity and efficiency
Features & Specifications
Let’s get stuck into it.
Firstly, we’ll be checking out both the specifications and features of the DCS367B.
- Weight of 5.4 lbs
- Dimensions of 6 x 7 x 14.5”
- 20V battery
- Keyless 4 position blade clamp
- Variable Speed trigger, 0-2,900 SPM
- Pivoting Shoe
- 1 ⅛” stroke length
- LED light for illuminating dark work spaces
With a 1-⅛” stroke length, the DCS367B can cut materials both efficiently and quickly. With this stroke length, both contractors and hobbyists alike will find that they’re able to cut through materials on their projects quicker than using an alternative reciprocating saw.
Coupled with a motor that is quite powerful for a reciprocating saw, you’ll have no second thoughts about your purchase.
Variable Speed Trigger & SPM
Another great feature that DeWalt have included in their DeWalt DCS367B model is the variable speed trigger.
The variable speed trigger allows you to dictate the speed of the reciprocating saw, allowing for more cuts which are more accurate than a one-speed setting.
Think of it this way – if you’ve ever been in a situation where you’re cutting through a soft material and moving to a harder material, for example – pruning a shrub to a metal pipe – you wouldn’t want a singular setting for these different materials.
With the variable speed trigger, your speeds can be adjusted to suit the project.
This is also paired with the SPM rate of the DCS367B, which delivers up to 2,900SPM.
For a lightweight and compact reciprocating saw, the variable speed and SPM combine to provide you with an extremely productive cutting session.
Adjustable Pivoting Shoe
With the features we’ve stated above, you’ll be needing to press against those harder materials (woods, metals, etc) when you’re cutting through them.
Enter the adjustable pivoting shoe.
This feature allows for cuts to be made on those trickier angles, where space is limited.
Whereas some reciprocating saws have a shoe which is not adjustable, this feature on the DCS367B allows you to get more out of both your project and the full power of the saw.
This model is the reciprocating saw only. DeWalt also provides two alternative options, the DCS367B reciprocating saw with blades, and the cordless starter kit.
What Are Some Standout Features On The DCS367B?
So we’ve had a look at some of the standard features on the DCS367B, now let’s get into the features which place the DeWalt model on a pedestal above the other reciprocating saws on the market.
One of the standout features of the DCS367B, DeWalt have included a brushless motor.
Unlike a traditional motor, the brushless motor incorporates a circuit board instead of brushes, which increases the longevity of your reciprocating saw, and also packs more power.
The brushless motor extends the use of the DCS367B by up to 2.5x that of other saws.
If you’re looking for durability and effectiveness, then the DCS367B is for you.
Perfect For Tight Spaces With Compact Design
The total weight of the DCS367B is 5.4 lbs. This is quite light for a reciprocating saw and at a length of 14.5”, you’ll be able to fit the entire tool in between studs, as well as reach other tight spots which you wouldn’t have before.
It’s also a good design ergonomically speaking. Both contractors and hobbyists can wear after a few hours of holding heavy tools, and the lightweight design aims to eliminate any stresses on your body, giving you the ability to work for longer.
Not too bad, is it?
Keyless Blade Clamp With Four Positions
Gone are the days where you would have to use a hex or allen key in order to switch blades. With the four-position keyless blade clamp, you’ll be able to swap blades in seconds.
The lever-action 4 position clamp allows for a variety of cuts to be made, instead of the traditional two positions which are found on most reciprocating saws.
Added versatility is always a bonus, in my books.
This not only eliminates time which can be used for your project, but also eliminates having extra tools that would take up precious space.
So I’ve run over all the features with a fine-tooth comb, and it’s evident that the DeWalt DCS367B wouldn’t look out of place in anyone’s inventory.
Whether you’re a professional contractor and would be taking on demo or construction work, or the gardener who needs a strong reciprocating saw to cut through thick shrubs and branches – the DCS367B is made for a collection of uses and people.
If you’re serious about tools and getting the job done, then a reciprocating saw is something you should already have in your arsenal.
If not, there’s always time to buy one – and why not start with the DCS367B?
