This used 7 1/4″ Dewalt circular saw is a heavy duty contractor’s saw with a magnesium shoe brake.
The rear pivot depth of cut adjustment allows your hand to remain behind the tool at all depth of cuts.
This saw has a powerful 15.0 Amp, 2,075 MWO motor made for long life and difficult applications.
It has a heavy-gauge, high-strength aluminum alloy base for increased durability on work site
This saw has been called “the finest circular saw you can buy” by many professionals.
The DW364 is a professional quality circular saw designed for heavy construction use. It will frame houses all day long and it’ll work fast enough to satisfy even the most demanding framer on the crew. To achieve these results DeWalt had to build a saw a level above the mainstream market in terms of quality. What is plastic or sheet metal on budget saws is made from solid metal on the DW364.
The DW364 is one of the most durable circular saws you can buy. Engineered not only for power, but also durability, the motor appears to draw its rated load continuously, rather than just at startup.
Both the upper and lower blade guard are cast magnesium. There is no play in the way the lower guard moves, which is unusual compared to the build quality of most saws. The control arm for the lower guard is out of reach of the trigger hand requiring two-handed use on some cuts. Most of time, however, the lower blade guard will retract without the operator having to do a thing.
The base plate of the saw is made from a single piece of solid aluminum. Guaranteed to never rust the plate is thick enough to never bend. There is no need for the reinforcing struts found on cast base plates. The plate lets you see what you are working on, while still being strong enough to survive the demands of the job site.
The saw is equipped with an electronic motor brake. The brake brings the blade to a dead stop about two seconds after the trigger is released. This allows the operator to put the saw down quickly without having to worry about a spinning blade.
Turning the front handle in the counter clockwise direction unlocks the depth adjustment mechanism. Tightening the knob back down locks the mechanism in place.
