Dewalt DCS777 XR FlexVolt Cordless Mitre Saw - Is This the Game Changer
Posted by Mark Hunter - September 28, 2016
We rely on our mitre saws to make quick, clean cuts over and over again without fuss. But for years, running a blade big enough to make over 60mm deep cuts all day, we required a saw with a power cord. But not anymore...
This is Dewalt’s DCS777, a cordless mitre saw with a 216mm blade that can make 220 cuts into 38x66mm timber. On a single charge of the battery.
How will that change the game for you?

The battery in question is the new XR FlexVolt which delivers 54v of powerto the saws motor, giving you the power of corded, without the power cord. Click to read our report on these new batteries.
Portability is a key benefit of the DCS777 and it weighs in at just 14kg making it only 2kg heavier than the corded DWS774, while giving you comparable cutting capacities.
Accuracy of your cuts is aided by Dewalt’s XPS Shadow Line cut, using the shadow of the blade’s kerf to show you exactly where you’ll be cutting, while lighting up your work area.
When you’re working on larger pieces, the left-hand fence slides to give you extra support and the when you’re cutting wider pieces, the internal rail design gives you big capacity cuts while keeping the footprint of the saw compact.
Dust extraction is taken care of by Dewalt’s excellent airlock dust port; you can even hook it up to something like the DCV582, keeping your set up completely cordless.

The DCS777 is a classic mitre saw, re-imagined for the modern cordless user. It’s available body-only or with two 54v XR FlexVolt batteries and fast charger, and qualities for Toolstop Finance.
