      When it came time to replace our deck furniture last summer, I first considered going down and buying a set of deck furniture from the local store. But, DIY kind of guy that I am, I decided to put that money into a new circular saw, some lumber, and a little stain with the intent to build a nice picnic table with seats, instead. So I began to shop around at the usual places (Sears, Home Depot, Lowe’s) and visit a few places online as well with the intent to see what was out there and how much a good circular saw would cost. After a weekend of looking, I settled on the

      DeWalt DW378GK and wound up not only with a lot of money left over, but a good looking set of new deck furniture to boot.

      But all that wooden deck furniture would have been a hassle to make if it wasn’t for the DeWalt DW378GK Circular Saw I purchased to replace the ailing Craftsman that I had. The DeWalt really impressed me with its power and low kick, which is due to the positioning of the motor that is mounted behind the blade. I was also able to see my cut lines much easier because of the motor position (I don’t have to lean over as much to see what I am doing) and what’s ...


      • more, the saw is also lighter than other saws of this design, which in practical terms makes the DeWalt DW378GK easier and safer to use. But, the saw is still heavy enough to offer good handling when cutting stock on a horizontal surface.

        While it’s true that the DeWalt DW378GK is more of a heavy duty saw intended for the professional who is constantly framing houses and cutting wood, concrete, plastic—with the appropriate blade, of course—I am still of the opinion that it has a place in the DIY’ers toolset. I do a lot of outdoor projects and not all of them are based exclusively in wood. Yet no matter what I need

        to cut, the DeWalt DW378GK has held up to my demands better than the lighter saws (Craftsman, Skil, etc.) I’ve used in the past ever have for the same purposes. That makes the money I put into purchasing the DeWalt DW378GK a good investment. Plus, it comes with a three year warranty and a bulletproof 90-day return policy with no questions asked if you simply don’t want it or can’t use it. I’d recommend the DeWalt DW378GK to anyone who needs a solid and reliable circular saw for both personal and professional work.

        Pros: Cuts through a with ease Can cut bevels up to 50 degrees Good cutting visibility Does not need oil changing Great warranty

        Cons: Can be a bit pricey Durability could be better
