Dewalt DCS365N Cordless Mitre Saw UK Review 

By  The Saw Guy

Thanks for taking your time to read out review of the Dewalt DCS365N cordless mitre saw. Cordless mitre saws are becoming more popular. That is thanks to the vast improvement in battery technology. Lithium Ion batteries have replaced the older Ni-Cad versions. These offer a  lot more life, don't discharge and are faster to charge.

Mitre saws like the Dewalt DCS365N have now taken full advantage of this new battery technology. Many contractors now have the confidence to switch from the corded mitre saw, to the handier cordless option.

As an example, the Dewalt DCS365N can on average make around 250 wood cuts, with one full charge of an 18 Volt XR battery.

This cordless mitre saw can get speeds of up to 3,750 rpm so you can see that is certainly does not lack power. For most users that number of cuts and power is more than enough for a full day's work.

Main Review

This saw was released to the UK market as of January 2017. As such there are not a lot of buyer reviews to make a full assessment of this cordless saw. Those that do exist simply state how excellent this saw is. That can change over time of course. We will keep this review updated if there are any major changes.

For now though, all the reviews are solid. If you fancy buying a high quality cordless mitre saw, then this one is clearly very good. It ticks all the boxes as it mitres and bevels. The dust collection is good, it is accurate and highly portable.

This saw has removable handles and that helps make this very portable and easier to store. Dewalt describe this as a lightweight and compact saw, and that is certainly true. It is hard to find anything to complain about with this saw.

To add peace of mind, you get a 3-year Dewalt warranty when you register your saw online.

Our Verdict on the DCS365N-XJ XR Saw

We like the fact that this has a heavy duty motor as it is this that allows for fast and powerful cutting for a variety of materials. The line cut indicator provides fast accurate alignment of the blade and illuminates the work piece .

We also liked the dual fence mechanism that gives maximum support in large material cuts at any angles. We also liked the angle adjustment system as it provides accurate and consistent setting of mitre angles between 0 and 48 Degree right and 0 and 48 Degree left.
