DeWalt DWM120K Heavy Duty Deep Cut Portable Band Saw
This corded band saw by DeWalt has been the standard a lot of other portable band saws have been compared to. This saw cuts material up to 5-inches deep, just like the Milwaukee we talked about earlier. The rear handle is perpendicular to the blade, while the front one is adjustable. I find this a bit less comfortable than some of the other saws I’ve looked at but of course a lot would depend upon the cutting angle.
One thing that DeWalt has done, which isn’t common is to make the motor brushes externally serviceable, a nice feature to have when it’s time to maintain the tool. Additionally, the saw has all the little extras we expect, including tool-free blade changing, the rubber pad around the blade shroud keeps the tool protected protects the tool, there’s an LED work light, and even a hang hook.
