I have the opportunity to purchase one of two saws. "In Canada we
don't get the amazing selection our neighbors to the south get..."
Both are deWalt 18 Volt Cordless Kits. The first is a DC or DW390K.
The second is the DW939K.
The 939K is not listed on the deWalt.com site. But is retailling
From what I can read both saws have identical features.
I'm hoping someone has better or first hand knowledge of these saws.
Both saws are the same price. I'm leaning towards the 939K because
the supplier is giving me a second battery free, in addition to
deWalt currently offering a mail-in Free battery as well.
So for the 939K I would end up with the saw kit and a total of three
batteries. The 390 I would only have two batteries. Up here
these batteries are $129 a piece.
Food for thought. The Ryobi "looks like a toy" 18V is only a 5 1/2"
saw at $180. I can purchase either of the deWalts for $299. The
next step up is an 18V Makita at $460 CDN which I assume must be gold
plated and is totally out of my price range.
I think the deWalt is best choice. The question is: Which is the
better saw. If there basically the same saw, I might as well buy the
939 and get three batteries out of the deal.
