Dewalt 12V Xtreme Brushless One Handed Reciprocating Saw DCS312G1 DCS312B

When Dewalt launched the 12V Max power tool line, it was a success with great initial offerings however new 12V tool offerings became stagnant for several years but 2019 was the big year for their 12V system as Dewalt breathed new life into their 12V system with the debut of the new brushless Xtreme subcompact power tool offerings. They offered better performance thanks to their brushless motors and were very well received and now we have news that Dewalt is releasing another 12V Xtreme tool with the Dewalt 12V Xtreme Brushless One Handed Reciprocating Saw DCS312 (DCS312B as a baretool or DCS312G1 as a kit).

Dewalt already had a 12V reciprocating saw with their DCS310 model however there was a need for an updated model. Not that the original model was bad as it was a great little saw but with competing brand Milwaukee and their M12 Fuel Hackzall providing very strong performance, we could see where Dewalt had their work cut out for them. So Dewalt’s latest 12V Xtreme reciprocating saw adds muscle for better raw cutting performance than their previous model. Unlike the DCS310 model, the new DCS312 model ditches the pivoting design in favor for a more traditional “Hackzall” style fixed body. This body shape allows for easy one handed cutting and also accommodates room for both hands for added stability with cuts.

The new model’s tech stats are 0-2800 SPM and 5/8″ stroke length. Length is 12.12″ and weighs in at 3.04 lbs as a baretool. The trigger offers variable speed and the front offers a tool-less blade change with twist knob to replace blades, a fixed shoe and LED light for help in low light.

It will be available in Spring 2020 and will be priced at $169 as a kit DCS312G1 with a compact 3.0 ah battery and charger and priced at $139 as a baretool DCS312B.
