    DCS387 versus DCS380/DCS385, October 24, 2014

    This review is from: DEWALT DCS387B 20-volt MAX Compact Reciprocating Saw with Tool (Tools & Home Improvement)
    This tool is identical in functionality to the DCS380 reciprocating saw, but the motor has been relocated to a diagonal position just in front of the trigger, shortening the tool. It’s also the cordless equivalent to the, similarly redesigned, corded DWE357.

    The tool DOES have the better 4-way head with quick-release latch like the DCS380, as compared to the 2-way head the lesser/cheaper DCS385 cordless saw has. It does NOT have a extending shoe of the DCS380 though due to its’ compact nature. It does swivel but doesn’t extend.

    I can’t attach photos to this review or item at the moment but check out the bare tool here on amazon (search for DCS387B), I uploaded a few photos of the 387 versus 380..

    My impression so far is that this saw handles/performs just like the DCS380, and you should probably just compare prices, or pick this one if that few inches of compactness is a huge deal to you. Also, if you’re buying the DCS380P1 kit, the “P” means a 5.0aH battery, while the DCS380 usually comes in a “L” kit (3.0aH) or “M” kit (4.0 aH).

    Hope that helps!

    edit 10/28/14: as a commenter mentioned (and I forgot to!), this tool has the LED lighting with delayed turn-off, it’s located just below the moving head of the tool, and shines through the inside of the shoe’s cutout for the head. Most of my Dewalt 20V tools have this feature, and you don’t know how much you’re missing out until you try it. The DCS380 does not have this LED light.

    This review is from: DEWALT DCS387B 20-volt MAX Compact Reciprocating Saw with Tool (Tools & Home Improvement)
    Super Dewalt quality. Looking at the unique design, I wondered about how this saw would feel when in use. Let me say, this saw is a pleasure to use, I feel I have more control compared to the traditional design. But, there are times when the longer type of saw gives you that “extra” bit of reach. Conclusion, if I needed to buy one again, I would choose this one. And, by the way, these Dewalt 20 volt lithium batteries are great, very good, with a long run time. I have the 2, 3 and 4 ah for all the different tools. 2ah is adequate for the drills, for this saw I use the 3 or 4 ah. Please remember, lithium batteries should NOT be run down all the way. When the fuel gauge only has one led lit, let the battery cool down, charge it, let it rest a while, then put it back to work. Of course the extra smart Dewalt charger won’t charge a hot battery, until it cools down.
