Dewalt has quietly launched a new 20V Max Cordless Reciprocating Saw, the DCS382 model. The new reciprocating saw hit stores in late 2021.

From product images and specifications, it appears that the DCS382 is smaller and lighter in weight than the Dewalt 20V Max RF frequency saws, with the exception of possibly the compact XR model and atomic chain saw.

The Dewalt DCS382 reciprocating saw is an XR model, which means it’s part of their core line of high-performance tools, and features a brushless motor.

Features include a two-finger variable speed starter, twist-off keyless blade clamps, pivot shoe, and LED light.

Dewalt says they have their saw Professional Compatibility It works with all FlexVolt and 20V max batteries.

At this time, the Dewalt DCS382 reciprocating saw is available as a bare tool (DCS382B), and as part of several 20V Max electric combo kits launched for the 2021 holiday shopping season.

Price: $169 – $179 For bare tool, DCS382B

discussion

I have two ideas here. First, the DCS382 doesn’t appear to be a groundbreaking model, as it has been included in many of the value-focused kits that have been rolled out for the recent holiday shopping season. Additionally, Dewalt tends to be more outspoken about its flagship releases of cordless power tools.

However, this is an XR tool. Another new 20V Max combo includes a mix of XR and non-XR kits (value-focused), as well as a PowerStack battery.

On paper, the speed and stroke length specs are impressive, matching the stroke length of Dewalt’s best-in-the-line 20V Max FlexVolt and 20V Max Power Detect reciprocating saws.
