Editor's Notes

February 04, 2019:

Despite a few reports that the DeWalt DCS331B is a bit on the heavy side, it’s even weight distribution and reliable balance ensure that it’s easy to operate without causing much fatigue. Noted that the Hitachi CJ18DGLP4 is one of few models that offers on-board blade storage, a useful feature for those who don’t currently have a spacious tool bag or case.
