Dewalt DCM575x1 Review
Whether you want to trim an old tree or chop it right down into small chunks, an electric chainsaw remains your best shot. You may still be thinking that these tools are for professionals but thanks to brushless motor technology, you can possess a compact cordless chainsaw for a steal, the Dewalt DCM575x1. The tool, although cordless, does not compromise on power. In fact, its 15m/s chain is the fastest among its peers in the market. In terms of vibration and cutting efficiency, Dewalt scores a margin over the rest.
The secret is a high-efficiency motor, coupled with a gigantic 9Ah XR Flexvolt battery. It provides up to 65x6in cuts per charge, and you’ll run out of the tree before it runs out of power. Thanks to its actively cooled fast charger, the chunky battery is full again in 75 minutes, and you will be back to work. Since it is part and parcel of DeWalt’s FlexVolt system, its battery can be shared with compatible tools from a mitre saw to a leaf blower. Additionally, it has an extensive over-mold which increases your comfort during operation, even for prolonged periods. Its chain can easily be adjusted with the tool-free bar fitment while the automatic rolling system ensures the chain is oiled in the most proper of ways to give a better quality cut and reduced the need for the tool’s maintenance.
In summary, it has a 9.0Ah Li-ion battery, a 30 cm bar length which has you cutting more wood in a go, and at the same time not making the tool too heavy. It has a 200ml oil tank capacity, a plastic spike bumper construction, and weighs 4kg with the battery. The chunky battery makes the tool quite heavy, although the extra weight is not too noticeable. It is sold with its battery, which means no extra costs before you go to work.
The DCM575 from Dewalt is a powerful 54v battery chainsaw, it features a brushless motor for high efficiency and longer battery life. It also has automatic oiling for less maintenance.
