Dewalt has released it’s newest battery powered miter saw, the Dewalt DCS781. It’s available as both a bare tool or as a kit with a battery and charger. Dewalt says this about the cutting capacity and battery life:
Using one DEWALT FLEXVOLT® DCB609 battery, the saw can make up to 675 cuts in 3-1/4 in. MDF base molding or 255 cuts in pressure treated 4 in. x 4 in. timber.
Users can cut 6-1/2 in. baseboard standing up or 6-1/2 in. crown molding nested with the saw’s tall adjustable fences. The miter lock makes for seamless miter angle adjustment while the 12-3/16 in. horizontal cut and large carry handle maximize portability without sacrificing capability.
Sounds pretty good to us. This will be one of Dewalt’s most fully featured sliding compound miter saws. More details available in the press release from Dewalt.
