Dewalt worm drive saw review by a customer


Weak or two ago, my old worm drive saw broke down, so I had to get a replacement. I did a lot of research and learned everything there was to learn about choosing the best worm drive saw. I came to conclusion that there are few power tool brands that I can trust, DeWalt being the most authoritive one.  So without much thought, I went straight to amazon and got DeWalt’s DWS535 worm drive saw and started to wait for delivery. Fortunately, amazon was pretty fast delivering it, so I got to test my worm drive saw in action pretty quickly, and here’s what I have to say about it.

First off, before getting deeper into this review, I want to say that this is the best worm drive saw I’ve ever used. DeWalt had clearly outperformed its competitors when it comes to ergonomic design and performance.

First thing I noticed after using the saw, was how tough the saw was. This tool has very easy-to-use design, but at the same time, it doesn’t compromise on the power. I had started from the weakest materials like soft wood, and went on gradually to try how well it would cut through the concrete and other incredibly firm materials. Spoiler alert – it did, and me and my partners were all surprised by how well this DeWalt had just performed. After trying out its capabilities with power, we went on to explore other cool features that this worm drive saw might have had.

Here’s when we were truly amazed by how exceptional job DWS535 designers have done. It’s like they have reached out and got imput from carpenters about the product, and resolved all the issues that bothered us the most. What I liked the most was the cord protection. Cord gets a lot of abuse during the work, and that’s why they thought of ToughCord protection that as you can probably guess, protects the cord from being damaged quickly. Another thing I liked about this DeWalt tool is the grip handle. It feels really comfortable and easy to hold and use.

Now, even through this saw is really like a beast, that can cut through anything, it is surprisingly lightweight and portable for its size. More appropriate description would be to say that it’s very well balanced. Other worm drive saws, for example the Bosch one that I’ve used before, tire your hands pretty fast and are unconventional to use, but that’s not the case with this one.

There are a lot of other minor adjustements in design that DeWalt has made, but talking about them will take me too long. The point of this review was to let everyone know how great DeWalt DWS535 is.
