I have received many tool packs, but I must say this circular saw and impact driver pack is one I will put to use. Today I am sharing all the details on my experience with the FLEXVOLT circular saw and impact driver.
The DEWALT FLEXVOLT Circular Saw w/ Impact Pack comes packed with the FLEXVOLT Circular Saw, the 20-Volt MAX XR Brushless Impact Driver, the FLEXVOLT and 2.0Ah battery. For everything you get in this kit, I think it is well worth the purchase.
I have worked with several circular saws and it was evident that this FLEXVOLT circular saw was one of the better models in my collection. The FLEXVOLT 60-Volt MAX 7-1/4 in. brushless circular saw delivers the power of corded with the portability and convenience of a cordless saw.
I hear a lot of people claim that they aren't a fan of cordless tools because they feel like they lose the power a corded tool provides, but in my opinion this FLEXVOLT circular saw could change their minds.
The circular saw did a fine job cutting through 2x material and ripping sheet goods. Cutting through the 2x was a lot smoother than ripping through a sheet of plywood.
The 20-Volt MAX XR Brushless Impact Driver is compact and ideal for working in tight spaces, and accepts 1 in. bit tips. I love how lightweight the drill is. The first Dewalt drill I ever had was an 18V Drill and man were those things heavy. DEWALT has really done a good job at designing a drill that is both powerful and lightweight.
The FLEXVOLT Circular saw features an electronic brake that stops the circular saw blade after the trigger is released.
Adjusting the bevel on the DEWALT FLEXVOLT circular saw seemed to be a lot easier to maneuver than other models I have experienced and the circular saw features bevel measurements that help make bevel cuts that aren't usual.
None of my other circular saws has this so I was pleasantly surprised to find this feature on my DEWALT FLEXVOLT. It was nice to have this rafter hook so I had the option to hang the circular saw at a comfortable height rather than placing it on the floor.
It doesn't seem like much but once you get used to it, I guarantee you, you will notice if you don't have it.
This isn't necessarily a feature but I really appreciate that DEWALT created a slot to house the wrench used for installing the blade. I can't tell you how many times I have lost little tools like this when there isn't and allowed spot for them.
The impact driver has 3 LED lights that provides visibility without shadows and there is a 20-second delay after trigger release.
The DEWALT impact driver features 3 speed settings for optimized versatility. This really comes in handy when drilling in screws. Having speed versatility ensures I get the job done correctly.
For the projects that I do, I really couldn't think of anything to improve either of these tools meaning they get an A+ from me, and that doesn't happen often.
