The DCS371 includes an LED work light with 20-second delay to illuminate dark work surfaces for accurate cutting, an integrated hang hook for convenient attachment to ladders or workstations, and a blade tracking adjustment that helps to prolong the life of the blade. For comfort and flexibility, the new band saw is equipped with an ergonomic, soft grip back handle. The tool-free blade changing lever loosens blade tension to make changing the blade easy, and the dual bearing blade guide rollers provide durability in the blade support system.
The 20V MAX* band saw kit (DCS371M1) with DEWALT XR 4.0 Ah lithium ion battery pack and fast charger, and the bare tool (DCS371B) will be available in January 2014, and will carry a suggested retail of $359 and $239, respectively. The kit and bare tool will both come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money back guarantee.
*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
