Dewalt DCS365M2 18 V 184 mm Cordless Mitre Saw Review
The Dewalt DCS365M2 is certainly not the cheapest option with a £400 price tag. That said, you do get the double bevel mitre saw, and the batteries required to operate it. It also comes with a blade so as you can get started right away.
It is fairly new to the UK market, but those who have bought it so far, have all given this saw the full 5 star ratings. That is always a very good sign. Ratings can change over time. If they do, I will update this review to reflect those findings.

There are only a few reviews as this cordless saw is pretty new to the UK market. Cordless tools are becoming ever more popular. That is simply because you don't have to worry about having a power source, and you don't have to worry about trailing electric leads.
Before the advent of Lithium-Ion batteries, having an effective and powerful enough mitre saw was simply not possible. With these highly improved batteries, and a much netter motor design, those days are gone.
Cordless mitre saws like the DCS365M2 are great for portability. You can move them around from site to site, and also from the garage or workshop to the outdoors. This one is also lightweight and that makes it even easier to transport. So for construction workers or site joiners, this could be a great choice.
For most contractors or professionals that means no more carrying around a generator, or a transformer. It also means you can leave the extension cables at home.
This saw, when fully charged, can do around 250 cuts on softwood and skirting boards. For most users that is more than enough to be able to do a full day's work.
The only slight downside that we have noticed, is that the back fence can't be adjusted. It is not a huge problem, but would have been a nice feature for some buyers.
